Too many Mexicans. If you like tacos and dollar stores Berwyn is the place for you.
If you want quiet decent neighbors that don't get drunk on weekends and beat their wives while their 6 year olds play in the streets skip Berwyn.
Berwyn is not all Mexican anymore not since the banks stopped giving out loans to people to buy homes who can't afford them. Instead Berwyn has section 8's north of 22nd street. Which would you rather have?

I was also a student at MW in the 80 s it was pretty benign, we had greasers. For real. Stoners. Geeks. Jocks. Etc. everyone stuck to their own and if you wanted to do well you could. If you wanted to be a screw up you could do that too. I am hoping somebody could help me out with an incident that occurred between a high school counselor and one of the students There was an ice pick stabbing. Any information about it is gone . I know names but prefer it not to mention them the student did leave school after the incident. Anyone remember this?

<quoted text> talk about neg comments back & fourth. How about once answering "How come suburbs that are nice & clean turn bad once Mexicans move in?" Can you once answer that without the insults?
Come on give us your best answer!!

Then why hire them? Do you know why people hire them? because they know that they are excellent workers who charge less for good work. Other idiots charge an arm and a leg for poor work.
People hire them to exploit them and pay them under the table. They are underpaid for the work they do. This is undermining of wages and negatively effects blue collar workers. I do background checks using everify on all my contractors and employees. I wont participate in the so called cheap labor market which makes us all pay much more in the end.

Yes we ALL do. In countless neighborhoods besides Berwyn. Addison, Melrose Park, Franklin Park, Brookfield, really can't write them all butCOUNTLESS other Chicago burbs and I REALLY mean countless were civilized, great schools and fairly quite before Mexico dumped their finest into Illinois and the country really. What separates our immigrant friends from the south is their unwillingness to assimilate and the democrats who depend on them for votes cater to them with freebies and bilingual as the norm. You won't find run down polish Italian German Russian neighborhoods and that's just a fact.

Berwyn is staunchly Democrat right? You might even be a Sanctuary City. It's good Berwyn is accepting as it is. Lots of towns don't want the Mexicans.

And I remember when no one wanted the Polish the Italians the Irish the blacks etc. Do you not get it... it's called being racist. The reason we are so divided is because everyone seems to forget that underneath our skin color will are all the same. We are all human beings made in the image of god. And of course there is your good and there is your bad in every race but you can't blame the entire race or religion for the criminal acts of a few. Has the Caucasian race forgotten their evil heinous unjust acts?

Mexico is not a race. It's a country! Do you live in Mexican barrio yourself? Luis Gutierez champions the Mexican but lives in a ritzy house in Wicker Park, so he's a hypocrite. I like to see whites supporting Mexicans live around Mexicans.
