Simon Hernandez says his convenience store business is down by almost half in the past year. He blames the state's high jobless rate and foreclosure crisis, which hit this heavily Hispanic city hard.

But he also says an executive order signed a year ago by Gov. Don Carcieri cracking down on illegal immigration drove away his largely immigrant base of customers, who told him they were moving to North Carolina and other states where they could live without fear of getting deported.
They told me they left because of this order," Hernandez said. "It's not only me."

Boo freaking hoo. Who cares whether or not they aren't all illegal? Instead of complaining about the enforcement of the laws they should exercise their options of:

(a) telling their illegal alien raza that they are unwelcome in America without coming through the front door; or

(b) shut up whining about the enforcement of American laws.

When will they realize that simply because those who they share a race/ethnicity with managed to crawl across the border undetected, it doesn't give them the right to squat here illegally?
