Some immigrants' rights groups say the move to smaller cities makes sense.

“Given the negative attitudes towards immigrants, the incessant persecution by immigration agents, and the lack of jobs," says Jorge-Mario Cabrera of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles, “immigrants may believe that smaller cities offer all the right options: a place to live unnoticed, a somewhat welcoming environment, and less competition for lower-paying jobs.”

The pro illegal alien spin in this article is treasonous IMHO.

Just crazy "new immigrants". Why do they hide then? Don't they have jobs waiting for them? Sponsors? Oh, that's right, they are illegal aliens.

It is true they have been invading smaller communities. Communities usually far from controversial issues such as illegal immigration, but they are not as uninformed as in the past. Many are outraged and votes will show just how much.

The headline for this article should have been:

Illegal immigrants avoiding other illegal immigrants

I get so sick of the pro-illegals calling illegal aliens "immigrants".

I just wish illegals would avoid the BIG USA all together. We don't want nor need anymore criminals.

You got that right! Also, notice they mentioned “lack of jobs.”

I've seen this first hand in my old home town areas of Nebraska, Kansas and Colorado. The last time we went home we went out to a park we used to frequent and there were many parties going. The first sign was that only the kids could speak English. Spanish was seldom heard when I was a kid even though a couple of my friends could speak it fluently. They just didn't have a reason too.

I met up with some of my old school buddies on that trip and they outlined the invasion to me. Evidently a couple of cattle farms were using them as dirt cheap labor.

So just as with the rest of America, a few greedy rats using them poison it for everyone.

I would think the climate in small towns towards illegals would be more hostile than in big cities. An illegal in Houston is water off a duck's back, but illegals in central Pennsylvania have found a very hostile environment.

I believe the climate is changing in general. However, it makes sense for illegals to try to relocate to areas where their numbers are few, and where they have not already depressed wages and decimated communities. It’s an untapped area.
