"...The LAPD estimates there are now 22,000 Latino gang members in the city of Los Angeles alone. Thatís not only more than all the Crips and the Bloods; itís more than all black, Asian, and white gang members combined."

I don't mind them hanging up Mexico flags but I get tired of seeing them, and when they do hang them up their usually like the size of their whole house! I just really don't understand why you would support illegal immigration, please dusesean try and explain to me, because I just really can't see why.

LOL!

Gizmo - you hit it right on the head. I think the original post on this this thread was "tongue in cheek" sarcasm, now this thread has turned into all the others.

Yeah, it's kind of pathetic... I actually thought the first post was funny, but it had to turn into another mess. I still think we need to watch out for that Irish invasion!!

The reason why California has slid in the past few years, traffic congestion/commute time, overpriced homes, run down neighborhoods and poor schools. These are not produced by illegal immigrants. except for children having the inability to speak strong English in public schools. Most homes were built in the 40's and 50's, they need remodeling. The high populations consists of job opportunities. The congestion caused by 36 million people who reside in the state, fourteen million more than any other state. The overpriced homes from willing buyers who desire the weather, a proffesional job, and an upscale community. Their are blacks, whites, latinos, and asians in Los Angeles County who have members involved in gangs and are in prison, and degrade the community around them. Their are illegal immigrants who are involved in gang activities and degrade communities, but their the only ones taking cheap shots. Where might you live? If I post immigrant statistics, you folks will show a confirmation bias towards your own opinions.

I can't take this, you're trying to be the most politically correct, but let us see. You had a job until last October, and you still pay taxes. Heck, when I quit my job I stopped paying taxes. I think you're getting hosed there. What in the world is a "delievery" man. Unless you mean delivery. If California's demise is to children not being taught English then, that means my state is going straight to heck, because they teach everyone here Spanish regardless of who you are. Which I refuse to learn because I am to dang old. And if homes like that are another reason you need to tell people in Boston that their homes are garbage, because they were built long before the 1940's through the 1950's. What's a "proffesional "? And they are not "Latinos" okay? They do NOT speak Latin. All you want to do is be a "know-it-all" that feels like bad mouthing anyone and everyone that wants to have their own opinion, because they don't agree with you on the views of illegals. You know what? Get over it. Just because you don't care if Mexicans and many other people move here in the masses, doesn't mean others don't as well.

Frankly, I'm tired of all the immigration from every country not just Mexico. I would much prefer the U.S.A to close its borders. We have enough problems here, we don't need more. I know it's the land of the free, but for now, it needs to be the land of getting back on track.

Hey, at least the Irish are white and they would be willing to speak English!!! I'd much rather have an infiltration of the Irish than hispanics, who refuse to assimmilate at all... :-)

And therein lies the root of my argument... you only care about their waving of flags when the wavers have brown skin, right? And you all claim it's just an "immigration issue" - riiiiiight.
