There are a bunch of illegal immigrants working on the road repair on 12 Mile Rd. just west of Woodward Ave. right now.

Drive over there and see for yourself. Now you know why you can't get a job.

They are all over the place here in Michigan.

Too many people out of work here to allow this to happen.

How exactly do you know that they are illegal immigrants?

Well, for one thing you have to know English to become a citizen in this country. I observed a conversation between a couple of them with another worker who was white and they were speaking Spanish to him.

I know that's not proof, but I'd bet you they are.

FYI -- There are around 100,000 to 200,000 illegals now in Michigan.

Yes, because human beings are incapable of speaking two languages.

No sh*t Sherlock. Are you really that naive? They are here and taking jobs that should be going to legal citizens.

Answer me this. Why are there a lot of jobs ads around here asking for Spanish speaking applicants for manual labor jobs?

Because there are a lot immigrants, both legal and illegal, who speak Spanish as a first language. That's why.

You must be a liberal white collar worker and don't have to worry about your job.

I'm sure they don't have any. That is, unless they were able to purchase beforehand some off of the people that just got busted in Detroit for selling illegal IDs.
