In their defense, I had dinner with my mexican-national neighbors yesterday (yes, they live here under questionable legal status) and couldn't help notice how clean their house looked and smelled. They keep their outside immaculate as well.
They are truely wonderful people, but that doesn't mean I like illegals.

It can be a paradox. You see the ladies sweeping the sidewalk every day, but the yard is full of cars.

Its true, a lot of people like to generalize Mexicans as being dirty, when many of them are pretty immaculate about their homes. Ive been to very poor peoples houses in Mexico, and while the house being small and shabby, everything was very clean still. I was impressed by that.

Not to say there aren't some dirty people out there. Mexico has it's hillbilly types just like America and places in Europe does. There's dirty people everywhere. Its unfortunate that those thoughtless people aren't respecting the country, and giving people yet another reason to be against immigrants.

Some of the cleanest folks we have seen have been the migrant workers and their children at the mall on Sundays. I have never considered them to be dirty. These people are different from the southern Mexican/Indians coming in. Some have different oppinions on soap. You can't ignore the trash piling up on our AZ border. Coming soon to a neighborhood near you.
