Please dont hire landscapers. They use illegals, and you bring them to LI when you hire them. You make the buses more jam packed up so I have to walk home, and contibute to noise and air pollution.
Do your own damn lawn!
WOW John, I find it amazing that behind the screen you can call the landscapers AMIGOS and categorize them all as illegals - what would you call them if they were all white? or black? I personally dislike the abuse that hard working immigrants (you don't know if they're illegal or not) are subject to every day. They are not 3rd class americans, if they're legal then they're just like you and your family. God only hope that you never have to leave your native home and have to work for pennies every day in a strange place where everyone considers you nothing. These are human beings and deserve respect just like anyone else. You mention that your bus is packed, how much can you really blame on immigration, what else did you have a bad day? Come on...
