My Son and Daughter live in Lexington, I go there often for visits and crime has been on the rise for some time now.

It's very obvious that a 20 yr old such as yourself doesn't have any health problems as of yet, or a family that needs coverage for health insurance. Myself I would rather have a $10.00 an hour job with good health insurance for my family than a $15.00 an hour job with no insurance. I suppose some have yet to get that middle school education. I suppose illegals would rather have a good paying job over health insurance, after all their medical is free.

I have nothing in common with y'all. I guess I don't understand
as an American in the land of opportunities, why you citizens
don't have health insurance... but even if you got the strawberry
picking jobs or whatever, unless you too want to shack up with
10 other families you still won't have enough for insurance.

Can you post anything without fruit or strawberry pickers in it?

Hubby has a opportunity to go there for work. I'm in Kansas right now.

What part of Ky would you be going too?

Okay, so instead of insulting each other.. how about some
ideas on how to combat this problem.

1. They are talking about a fence.. probably take a long time
to get that going but what do you think of the idea.
Do you think it would help alot or a little.

2. Everyone is mad about the free care they get. Of course
the United States will always provide that so ... what if they
passed a bill that once the baby was born, since the Mother
is not a Citizen ... then neither is the baby. And after medical
care both were transported back to Mexico. Would that
seem fair to you?

3. How about more government officials checking for papers.
If a business is caught without... heavy fines would be
paid and after so many times... businesses shut down.

4. I forgot food stamps.. how about if you aren't a citizen you can't
get them... after all.. don't soup kitchens pretty much feed everyone.
And if they are really in dire need, then they could turn themselves in
but after getting fed well etc.. back to Mexico.

5. Also.... what about random checks for id and papers... for anyone.
I mean ...no one wants to turn into cold war Russia but still... if you
are in the U.S. No one should mind. I know lot's of people would protest
that..profiling etc but I'm really trying to come up with some ideas

I still feel compassion for the illegals... that will not change. But I'm also not
pro illegal. I know something needs to be done.

We do have meat packing plants. Where they butcher the cows and what not. I don't even eat red meat -
Okay... I love strawberries okay. I don't have a farm..
just when I think of fruits and vegetables
I'd rather think of strawberries. Gross to the meat
packing plants... yuck. I'm so close to not
eating red meat. I just can't help myself sometimes
order a burger or something. I'm sure if I were to
see inside it would be vegetarian time for me.
