Hispanics upset about Alabama's new immigration law may take a page from civil rights and union pioneers this week and stay home a day to demonstrate their economic impact. "They don't believe they are the ones running the economy, but if they don't show up for work, those big companies are going to lose a lot of money, and maybe they will pressure lawmakers to change the law." Elia Ortega of Albertville said Friday, referring to the area's big poultry plants.

You know absolutely nothing about US immigration history. You know nothing about what Europeans had to obtain from their own governments before being permitted to emigrate. Please stop being so abjectly ignorant and quite ridicuously stupid.

Not true its English. English is the common international language and dont try to say different. Almost all other countries speak English as a second language. Stupid fucktard.

An overwhelming majority of the U.S. population speaks and conducts business in English, so the benefits to the individual and society should be obvious to all but the most ignorant and arrogant of people.

It is no secret that Mandarin is the world’s most spoken language.

If you are correct where then will your grandchildren’s children go to escape the impoverished United States of Mexico?

So, you're a proponent of anarchy, eh? Like, because there are rapists running about, it's hopeless and we shouldn't try to stop them? Please, learn what a lawful society is and how it functions. Stop basing your propaganda on your racist beliefs. No one buys it except other racists who share your particular agenda. Better yet, move to Mexico - Mexicans in general don't seem to function well in a lawful society.

If you were capable of researching past and present immigration laws, you'd understand why they have existed and still exist. Oh, wait - you might understand them, but you don't agree with them because they thwart your racist agenda. Oops. Why don't you just admit it - you'd feel oh so much better and make more sense.

My wife worked in the frigo packing plant here in Grand Rapids MIchigan and told me there were almost all Latino employees. The sign on the bathroom says easy your hands before leaving the restroom. You think they wash their hands, my wife witnessed most all exiting the rest room without washing. Enjoy your fritos, also need to mention that there were trash cans full of feces laced toilet paper. I guess it is their culture to wipe them selves and through the paper in the trash can instead of down the toilet. My wife's supervisor comment to her concern was" it's a culture thing". I guess she mention ecoli culture. Enjoy your next bag of fritos.

Racist much idiot?. Americans will do the job,regardless of skin color,moron,as they have done in the Nations history.Plus,it is legal for Americans and immigrants to do the work,but illegal for the illegals.
