Another SOB story of how we should feel sorry for them after they break our laws and spit in our face. I say, tough luck. Go home because we don't want you or care about your problems.

Undocumented workers fear asking for help after Ike | Houston & Texas News | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle

GALVESTON -- Elmer Martinez, 22, lost all his possessions in Hurricane Ike's storm surge. The restaurant where he worked is closed, and it may be weeks before he finds another job. That would make him like many Galveston residents, except for one important distinction: He is one of several thousand illegal immigrants living in a post-storm limbo, afraid they will be discovered by the squads of law enforcement officers now patrolling the streets and guarding the causeway entrance. Some of the undocumented immigrants are hesitant to leave the island, worrying they will not be allowed back. While they wait for work to resume, the financial assistance for housing and personal losses offered by government agencies is not available since they lack valid U.S. identity documents.

If Elmer has lost “everything” -- he has nothing else to “lose” by returning home. He and others are here illegally, and now they don’t have jobs. There’s a simple solution……..go home!!!! Sorry, no sympathy here.

Did they really spit in your face?? These are human beings going thru a tough time, therefore I do have sympathy for them. I really don't care if they're illegal or not.

Then said illegals need to be rounded up along with the rest of the flagrant lawbreakers and placed in guarded camps prior to deportation for the former.

Problem solved.

Tell me something, why is it everytime I or someone else on this forum who isn't completely hysterically judgemental towards illegals posts anything on here, you & others jump on our backs? It's kind of absurd & amusing at the same time.

Simple: US citizens and green card holders come first; too, we as a people are sick and tired of a bunch of insolent lawbreakers who think the world owes them something.

karfar, they dont need your pity. If you want to make a difference protest Mexico's resistance toward economic reform.
