Obviously, folks are getting fed up with illegals. This could get very ugly.

Officials from several area restaurants have made citizen's arrests on 27 day laborers at the Home Depot on Gale Avenue in Industry, authorities said Thursday.

Officials from businesses near the Home Depot at Gale and Fullerton Road near Rowland Heights recently complained that laborers were urinating in public and harassing customers in the parking lot.

On Tuesday, deputies warned the laborers to stay on public property. Then on Wednesday, citizens acted as witnesses and had 27 men arrested for trespassing by sheriff's deputies, said Lt. John McBride of the sheriff's Industry Station.

Sheriff's officials wouldn't release the names of the those who made the citizen's arrests, saying the matter was still being investigated.

"They are kind of an eyesore in front of our business," said General Manager Frank Millan. "I have customers that are sometimes afraid to go out to their cars because (laborers) are surrounding the area. It is bad for all businesses around here."

He wasn't surprised when many of the day laborers returned Thursday. "People need to work."

"With what is happening in Industry, it is important and essential that we sit down with the different parts of the community so we can come up with a way to collaborate and coexist," Alvarado said.

Forget co-existing. Arrest them and deport them. It is a crying shame when people are afraid to go into a business because these louts cannot control themselves. You have to wonder how much of this is happening around the country. Also you have to wonder how it effects the consumer report. If people do not go to a business, the business loses money.

"Co-Exist?".. Basically the context of what Mr. Alverado said meant, "Legal U.S. Citizens should just shut up and let the illegal aliens do as they please".. Forget the Identity Theft, Forget the crimes they are committing, and just accept that illegal aliens are now part of your everyday lives, higher taxes and all..

People need to work? Yeah, OUR people.

We need to learn to co-exist? No we don't. They don't belong here. We don't all go to Mexico, take their jobs, rape their country, live in their houses and expect them to learn to co-exist.


Question: Do you know the difference between an American co-existing with illegals in our country and Mexicans co-existing with illegals in THEIR country?

Answer: In Mexico, the illegals would be shot on sight, no questions asked.

Mexico, or any other country would never allow their land to be invaded on by illegal people and take it laying down.

They might of been arrested, but I bet your Aunt Betty - they will be slapped right back onto the streets.

They need to start going after those who hire them. It's the only way to prevent them from working here. DON'T HIRE THEM...

Sadly much poverty in Latin America is self inflicted through high birth rates. Hard to feel sorry for people when they refuse to use common sense.

They were arrested and then, what do you know, they returned to work the next day. Just like magic! No talk of deportation or anything of the sort.

Coexist? LOL....I don't think so.

They can coexist with other people all they want back home.

The utter gaul of illegals to suggest that they "need to work" and that it is "important" and "essential" for AMERICANS to give into their demands (or even to suggest that we compromise with their criminal selves) to peacefully "coexist"!

Why the f$%^ weren't they turned over to immigration officials? What would it take to do so? This is getting crazy. We need to find away that U.S. citizens can deputize as volunteers to arrest these leeches.
