We do help out by keeping our home prices and cost of living high. Have you seen the gas prices in Southern California? It's at $2.55 in Orange County and over $2.60 in L.A.

It's nearly mandatory to have a high paying job and an education, and if an illegal immigrant wants to survive here, he's got to find a productive way to contribute and keep his family afloat.

I wouldn't get upset over someone like that, the guys probably saying it to get a reaction just like these.

I agree that killing them is not a good idea but getting a list of every immigrant that is here illegaly and go to their homes and take them by the truckload to the border and make them march back to their country and until every last one is gone and then we close the border and still keep armed guards at the border.

Cool Logic

He is mad and wanting something done. Killing them is not the solution but making them leave is. The nice people will see it his way when they have illegals for neighbors. When they move in nice neighborhoods it is ruined. I imagine he is wanting to shock people into reality. This is just one man but there is thousands like him. Some are at their wits end. Some leaving their homes after 20 years or more. He must live pretty close to them to write this. I feel sorry for him and his family. I hope someone comes up with a solution. One lady put on a forum said, to put a thousand dollar bounty on illegals, said that would boost the economy. So, this guy isn't the only one. He is voicing his opinion. People are mad and this isn't the last post like this you will see. Americans are mad and sick of the investation that is taking place.

i'm anti-illegal but hunting and killing them is just wrong. BUT dropping dime to ICE and having them deported is fair game.

Nothing but agreement to this...

I live in Orange County and my family could "pass" for illegals, so OBVIOUSLY I want nothing to do with this "kook" (in fact, to ME it sounds like a hoax). I don't quite know if "The Hunter" plans to shoot folks on SIGHT, or after a brief oral interview. Ridiculous and silly...(Maybe he intends to find out if they "talk funny", or if they can "speak American")...

But I will make ONE observation amidst the nonsense, and it's THIS....Misguided "wackos", fringe characters, and "wing-nuts" come out from under their 'rocks' and into the daylight, when the "NORMAL" people, whom we rely on to carry out their duties, ABDICATE those duties. The tremendous rise in anti-Hispanic prejudice among the angry and the 'hate-mongers' has NOT occurred in a total vacuum...it's ocurred at a time when TEN PERCENT of Mexico is HERE...and Millions of OTHERS as well, to the point that there is a fair chance that any "hispanic", picked at random, walking down the street, MAY WELL BE ILLEGAL, for no other reason than simple mathmatics.
It's a terrible problem, which impacts anyone "looking" remotely Hispanic, as well as the rest of us. And MUCH of the responsibility falls at the feet of the "authorities", those people whose JOB, and whose SWORN DUTY it is, to secure our border from 'trespassers", and the result is, that millions of illegal Hispanics ARE now here, giving an "open invitation" to the racists to lash out. When those in positions of authority fail, or REFUSE, to do their duties, the "little people" (all of us) fall into squabbling, bickering, and silly 'blame games'.

We should be MAD at the racists, for sure....but let's ALSO take a moment to think about those in authority whose failure to do their JOB has given these racists a certain amount of credibility in their angry 'charges"...

Someone has been resurrecting old threads of no true value - did you all notice the dates on the first several posts? Did the "high" cost of gas listed at $2.55 not tip anyone off? We're close to $4.00 here in LA fwiw -
