Sweeping across the Nation! Americans have had enough!

Quote:
A whopping 85 percent of likely Republican primary voters would support an Arizona-like law in Nevada to crack down on illegal immigrants, according to a new poll that shows why GOP candidates in the U.S. Senate and gubernatorial races have rushed to praise the border state.

Default illegals....not racial.....just facts

Look.........if someone would get a task force together and ship ALL the illegals here in Vegas back to where they came from, put armed security on our borders (Preferably the U.S. Army) this economy would turn around. Look.........just in my neighbor hood alone (and I live in a decent part of Vegas....they have 3-5 Hispanic families living together in a 2 story single family home....hmmmm....3 bedrooms 11 people. I guess that's were our Realtor got the word "Stacking"
Anywho......lets do some math. Say.....5 adults in the home (Many times it is MORE) each making between minimum wage and 9 dollars an hour. (this include the illegal Home Depot crew's) Now, making an average of about 8$hr.....times 5adults = 40$hr times 40hours week = 1,600$ a week times 4 weeks = 6,400$ month. WOW!!!!!! And this is happening!!!! all over Vegas. The money they don't use gets shipped back to Mexico where it is worth a lot more there....hence....our money is not staying in our economy for that matter not even our country.

I am a skilled laborer (6g Certified Welder). The company I worked for said they were having a reduction in staff and let quite a few people go. Two weeks later I went back to find a bunch of people there that could barely speak English taking work away from Veterans (like me) and there families. I went from making 60k a year to unemployment. Look.....im not trying to feel sorry for myself....just trying to voice what is happening and maybe the right people will here it. I have even wrote the President of the U.S. I am a 3 time Honorably discharge U.S. Army Infantry Veteran and what is going on in this City is ****IN BULL****!!!!!!
