Do you really think you can spot illegals by appearance? Tell me how anyone call tell if a Hispanic individual or any one is illegal by looking?

You can't.

And hint, many of the illegals who are in the Springfield-Branson area are from eastern Europe, not Mexico.

Well not true I know some that were born and raised here speak mostly Spanish.I was at a Dinner with a girl that was raised here and she was talking to her kids in Spanish and I told her what I thought of it.

Biggest thing I've seen around here is their last name changes after being here a couple years.

Just because someone speaks Spanish or with a Hispanic accent doesn't make someone "illegal". Most of the Hispanic immigrants are legal and I don't need to come to Colorado; we have many Hispanic immigrants in my corner of SWMO. They make good neighbors, good students, and good parishioners.

Been there, done that. I know exactly what you're talking about, but you're still blowing smoke when you say that you can spot an illegal by listening to a conversation. Your objectivity has flown out the window and has been replaced with stereotyping.

Stereotyping yelp I decided to do this when the bulk of them are illegal and they live the lifestyle of one.
