I was appauled last week to see a bunch of Hispanics standing on the property lines of the Race Trac service station at 2905 South Cooper!

The city called them Day Laborers when actually they are probably illegal aliens. Arlington has no Day Labor buildings, thank God!

I've contacted the city, the PD, and the Race Trac corporate offices. I'm awaiting a reply from the latter. In the meanwhile, I contacted ICE and they are not happy about it, and I'm thrilled they are not happy about it. BYE BYE ILLEGALS!!!

I would not be surprised to find that nothing was ever done about this problem. Good luck in getting law enforcement to do much about illegal aliens.

These day laborers ought to be arrested, then deported.

I've driven by that Race Trac on Cooper Street and there are at least 50 " day laborers " waiting for someone to pick them up on a daily basis! ICE needs to set up a " sting operation " and arrest the laborers and the business's that pull in to pick them up. It amazes me that these illegal aliens think they are owed all the rights and perks that legal residents have ... yet they don't have the BALLS to go back to Mexico and demand the same. The reason they don't is because they know Mexican goverment will shoot them on the spot ... sounds like a good plan to me , to implement in this country!

Can believe all you racist. The reason these people stand there is because they now some lazy white person is going to use them to do the jobs they won't do. I've been to so many other cities where there is white people begging in the corners when they have all their legs and arms, how come they don't work as hard as the hisp. do.

Excuse me ... but I can't find anything in the above posts that I would call racist ... IF YOUR NOT A LEGAL RESIDENT, THEN YOU SHOULD BE DEPORTED ... PERIOD !!! Doesn't matter where you came from !Btw ... you forgot to mention the lazy blacks that won't work. Not only does Congress need immigration reform ... they also need to stop the "free for all" welfare program .... for the illegal aliens and lazy ass legal residents ! We seem to have plenty of people in this country ( legal and illegal ) that have plenty of energy to screw ... yet can't seem find the same energy in getting a job! If you have a child ... then YOU need to support it and stop expecting Uncle Sam to pay YOUR BILLS !

You are correct, nothing anyone said above was "racist" only hateful.

There's a lot of empathy happening on this thread it fills me with so much faith in humankind.

Let them work hard in their own country, raise the cash, apply through proper legal channels and get a damn Green Card. Then they can come back and hang out at Race Trac all they want, except that they will now want normal jobs like all their LEGAL counterparts, who by the way DO NOT LIKE them EITHER. I guess that makes all the LEGAL hispanic immigrants racists too, right?

Day laborers work *really* hard. They're doing work that *nobody* else will do. Seriously, they're not taking anyone's jobs. And under the guidance of those who use them, they are improving neighborhoods with work that would otherwise not get done.

The day laborer group is millions strong. They're not going to be deported. It's simply not going to happen. Just think about it. So might as well stop getting hateful about it and figure out a compromise solution.

Toshiro;

The reason legal residents won't do the job is because employers won't pay a fair, proportionate wage to the work provided. Most employers would rather go under the table and pay someone cash, and very little cash at that, than go through the process of hiring a legal resident. With an illegal you can pay well below minimum wage, think about it.

I hear that same argument all the time... maybe the people who support illegal immigrants should open their EYES!

Operation Wet-back was a 1954 project of the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) to remove about four million illegal immigrants from the southwestern United States, with a focus on Mexican nationals.

History
Burgeoning numbers of illegal aliens prompted President Dwight D. Eisenhower to appoint his longtime friend, General Joseph Swing, as INS Commissioner. According to Attorney General Herbert Brownell Jr., Eisenhower had a sense of urgency about illegal immigration immediately upon taking office. In a letter to Sen. William Fulbright, Eisenhower quoted a report in The New York Times that said: "The rise in illegal border-crossing by Mexican 'wet-backs'(rooted from the watery route taken by the Mexican immigrants across the Rio Grande) to a current rate of more than 1,000,000 cases a year has been accompanied by a curious relaxation in ethical standards extending all the way from the farmer-exploiters of this contraband labor to the highest levels of the Federal Government."[1]

Eisenhower became increasingly concerned that profits from illegal labor led to corruption. The operation was modeled after the deportation program that invited American citizens of Mexican ancestry to go back to Mexico during the Great Depression because of the bad economy north of the border.

Operation
The operation began in California and Arizona and coordinated 1,075 Border Patrol agents along with state and local police agencies to mount an aggressive crackdown, going as far as police sweeps of Mexican-American neighborhoods and random stops and ID checks of "Mexican-looking" people in a region with many Native Americans and native Hispanics.[2] 750 agents targeted agricultural areas with a goal of 1000 apprehensions a day. By the end of July, over 50,000 aliens were caught in the two states. Around 488,000 people fled the country for fear of being apprehended. By September, 80,000 had been taken into custody in Texas, and the INS estimates that 500,000-700,000 people had left Texas voluntarily. To discourage re-entry, buses and trains took many people deep within Mexico before being set free. Tens of thousands more were put aboard two hired ships, the Emancipation and the Mercurio. The ships ferried them from Port Isabel, Texas, to Veracruz, Mexico, more than 500 miles (800 kilometers) south. Some went as far as 1,000 miles.

Operation Wet-back deported more than 130,000 Mexican nationals in the space of almost a year, although local INS officials claimed that an additional 1 million to 1.2 million had fled to Mexico. The INS estimates rested on the claim that most illegal immigrants, fearing apprehension by the government, had voluntarily repatriated themselves before and during the initiative. Proponents of increased deportations point to a multiplying effect, where each individual deported resulted in roughly nine voluntarily returning to their home country. Still unknown is how many native-born Mexicans and even American Indians were deported by the operation. The operation is still largely unknown to the American public, as it is rarely taught in public schools today.

Yes, thank God. Thank God we don't help the poor. Thank God we can keep our little isolated environment and we don't have to worry if the children of others eat. Thank God for my good life and screw everybody else. Thank God I do not have to see poverty and do anything about it. Yey for me!
