Go thank the Unions. They support illegal immigration.

I was stationed in San Antonio and many guys reached out to the young Latino girls in Texas and Mexico.

Immigration laws are in place to prevent overcrowding! We can't absorb this many poor, uneducated, and unskilled people and their enormous families. This is the cold, harsh truth.
This is why the quality of life dramatically decreases in the suburbs where illegal aliens flock.
I realize it's only one town of MANY, but I'm beyond disgusted, I'm OUTRAGED at what my beloved Addison has become. I drove through it TODAY 9/10/14 after 26 years of being on the east coast and....I'm just saddened. There aren't any words. It's like hiroshima with Mexicans all around, for God sakes what in the hell happened here? Mrs. Hartwig was my school teacher back at st Paul Lutheran, what a wonderful lady she was to everybody, fantastic in every way. I'm sure her husband did what he could to save this town. All is lost SOS...SOS..RIP once beautiful town.

I didn't see anything in the article about illegal immigrants. Not all Mexicans are illegal immigrants.
Very true, however it's striking how unlike ANY other immigrant whether it be Polish, German, Russian, Irish..Latinos choose to have a foot here and another back where they came from. It shows in their neighborhoods, destruction of school systems, demands for Spanish as a second language. If I was born in that toilet of a country you'd better believe I'd be jumping a fence, however I'd be embarrassed not to speak English and take any handouts. I'd have thirty American flags on my house, and be eternally grateful to not trip over a chicken on the street while running away from a drug Lord.

I have to agree. I grew up in Addison, I returned there last month to visit and I thought a bomb hit it. These aren't immigrants, their invaders unwilling to acclimate, it looked like Tijuana, I honestly thought I saw a goat in somebody's front yard. When the Italians filled Addison, it seemed very clean and prosperous, they too were immigrants, difference being of course they proudly acclimated and took pride in their AMERICAN heritage never forgetting their Italian heritage. That's the norm for all the immigrants except for these Mexicans. I'm tired of seeing these suburbs destroyed.

I grew up in Addison. I returned there last month and it looked like a bomb hit it, it was devastating to see. When I was growing up there early nineties it was filled with mostly Italians who too were immigrants, difference being of course they like countless other nationalities except for Latinos took GREAT pride in their AMERICAN heritage and acclimated without ever forgetting their Italian background. The town was clean, prosperous and it didn't look like Tijuana. I swear that I saw a goat in somebody's back yard. This happens to towns taken over by these "part time" Americans..Addison, Bensenville, Aurora, Carpentersville, Chicago, Warrenville, Elgin on and ON..I'm tired of seeing once BEAUTIFUL towns in the suburbs absolutely destroyed by these non acclimating invaders.
