Don't antagonize us too much: we will bite back. Does Mexico want to lose more land? The reality is that PC is dying out quite rapidly.

Default Same here

Same here, the guy who does our small lawn and has been doing it for a few years now has seen his business falling off thanks to these people. They have followed him around and after he has finished his cutting have gone and knocked on the doors of those homes and undercut his prices by a few dollars and many of his customers have now dropped him. He charges us 45 bucks and when they came and knocked on our door they offered to do the job for 35, I sent them packing. Our guy does a fantastic job, is dependable and is an American citizen, born and raised in town, he is African American. Times are tough for us all right now but that extra 10 bucks isn't going to do much for us other than maybe get us a meal at Mickey D's, however it does keep an American working and that makes us feel great. When I got sick a few months ago his wife showed up at our door asking if there was anything she could help me with, I didn't even know the lady but he had told her I was under the weather and she went out of her way to offer to help me, thats what real people do. He stops and cleans trash off my lawn that seems to be getting thrown there since I refused their "lawn service" whenever he sees it while riding by, never charges me for that, just does it because he appreciates us sticking with him. As long as we can afford to have anyone cut the lawn it will be him, unless he decides to not cut anymore.



He likes cheap landscapers?

As for me, I'd rather give an American $50 than give an illegal $5.[/quote]

If only there were more Americans like you.

I think sometimes the poster is reading some other forum thread and at the bottom up pops a "related" thread - and they read and post without even looking to see if it's relevant to 3 years later (or whatever time frame).

I really wish CD would institute archived threads, they'd still be accessible but not able to accept new postings.

They do the jobs you don't want to do? I am so sick of hearing that they do the jobs that we Americans don't want to do! That's not true. Since when do Americans not want to do construction jobs??? Landscaping jobs??? Give me a break. They take jobs that Americans most certainly WOULD do, it's just that they do them for below minimum wage and the cheap owner of the company chooses to go that route.

The truth is that Americans will do ANY job if the pay is right. When construction paid good, landscaping paid good - Americans did the work. These immigrants brought wages down!!!

They help make citizens more vibrant??? What city is that? The city I lived in that was filled with them was not vibrant because of them. Instead they spread around their mess with gangs, graffitti, etc.

They help divert attention from AA's? What on earth does that mean? They are making things worse for you guys. They are helping to keep wages low. And from what I've seen, the blacks and hispanics fight each other!!!

You can love latin women all you want but that doesn't have anything to do with illegals directly. You can love LEGAL latin women.

And their food? I love mexican food as well. No doubt! But when I walk into the restaurants that I love their food at it's usually white people working there and cooking and serving it up. It doesn't take a mexican to make a taco anymore than it takes an American to make a hot dog!

I noticed you didn't mention picking strawberries or working the fields, I have never seen a white guy working the strawberry fields alongside us Mexicans!! And as a youth I picked strawberries, my mom made me so that I know that never want to work in the fields again. It worked.
