Boy do you have some nerve and then you throw in some curse words to boot-how lovely.

The Nashua Telegraph has run stories about the illegal alien population-rather they call them the "undocumented population". You surely aren't calling the liberal rag- The Telegraph- racist now are you? During the last Nashua mayoral election-flyers were handed out in Spanish by the now mayor of Nashua. I thought citizens needed to speak English in order to vote? Why would the mayor-elect be handing out flyers in Spanish? Hmmm. Why is it racist to expect the mayor of the 2nd largest city in the state to campaign in ENGLISH?

I have read numerous stories about an increase in the illegal alien population in both Manchester and Nashua. I have seen many stories on WMUR as well. I have friends in the construction industry in the southern part of the state who are losing business because of illegals. I don't need to "assume" anyone is an illegal-if I watch a news story or I read a newspaper and it says they are illegal or undocumented- I don't need to assume. It is there in black and white for me.

You have no right to come on here and accuse me of racism. Where did I say "I noticed Spanish people and assumed they were illegal"? I never said that!!

All these unfounded accusations against me and YOU have the nerve to call me a racist?
What are you talking about! Maybe you didn't expressly state it, but you completely inferred that because of all the Spanish signs and Hispanics around the people were illegal. You don't need to say you "walk by and assume people are illegal." Your nasty, defensive tone and attitude explains it all.

So please, just keep moving north. I hear the northern reaches of Newfoundland have very few illegal-looking folks.

The putative American 'Hispanic' community really needs to careful due to the criminal actions of the illegals-----------most of whom happen to be some variety of Latino.

And I blame those criminals from SOB for hurting those folks who immigrated here legally

Racism -The only argument that pro-illegals have and it certainly is not a logical one. Logic does not exist in the pro-illegal world.

Just because one wants the laws upheld does not make them a racist. Just because one wants politicians to campaign in English does not make them a racist. What would these pro-illegals have if they could not use the race card? Nothing. Because one cannot logically argue against the fact that illegal is illegal. No matter how many times you call someone a racist-illegal aliens are still illegal and have no right to be here.

What are you talking about? You and and your other pro-illegal friends are the nasty ones. My "attitude" as you put it explains nothing. Here are the facts:

Newspapers and TV news are reporting on illegal aliens in NH comitting crimes-fact. I don't look at people and "assume" they are anything. The newspaper and news(with information from police blotters) tells me all I need to know. Certain newspapers are more than happy to do fluff pieces talking about the illegal alien population and the businesses they own, etc. We know that illegals are anything but "in the shadows". This has increased in the past 10 years-fact.

There has been a huge increase in the number of illegal aliens in the past 10 years in New Hampshire-fact. While the overall population of illegals is small compared to the rest of the country-the percentage in increase is large-fact.

In the past 10 years- you went from not needing to speak Spanish to having to speak Spanish for many jobs such as welfare, social services, etc.-fact.

The now mayor of Nashua campaigned using flyers in Spanish-fact.

In the past 10 years-DMV signs are now in Spanish-fact. I thought one needed to be a citizen to vote and to speak English to be a citizen.

Resort to your name calling and jokes about moving north that you think are funny. However along with the rise in illegal aliens and their crimes here in New Hampshire has come a need for people to speak Spanish in order to get jobs in welfare, social services etc. Sorry but that is more than a coincidence-the two happen at the same time? Not to mention the fact that they tried(and thank it God failed before it got to the floor) to make NH a Sanctuary State earlier in the year. I am sure some of them are legal but not all. And if they are legal-collecting welfare and not speaking English-then you are right I have a problem with that. Welfare should be for American citizens. If they canot speak English and are collecting welfare-how are they an American citizen? Doesn't one need to speak English to be a citizen?

Bordering Maryland is basically a sanctuary state for illegals and has a growing population of them so it can't be much of a surprise that nearby DE or even VA is having problems with them.

looks like someone had an ax to grind with BK.... seems they could find the same in all our restaurants here in Orlando, be it Chinese, Mexican or otherwise. Why look at only BK? Now with all the fines it looks like the American restaurant(assuming a franchise) may not survive. Their profit margin can not sustain a loss like that I bet. Guess the legals lose too. From a Native American perspective I guess all that aren't Native American are illegals too.

Exactly how far back in time do you want to go? At some point people walked across a land/ice bridge. Does that matter now? No.



Since Illegal Aliens come from all corners of the planet and speak up to 50 different languages it would be rather silly to list all 50 on phone voice recordings now wouldn't it?

Press 1 for Spanish
Press 2 for Madarin
Press 3 for Hindi/Urdu
Press 4 for Portuguese
and so on and so on..............
