All these feel good idiots that want these people here(illegal Mexicans) should feel good they were not the ones killed.
They know nothing of them or their background and say stupid things like I find this hard to believe he could do this.
Laughable if not so serious

Gee, and I thought all these slimy illegals were here to work hard and be productive citizens.

Wake up, people. this sort of thing is coming to a neighborhood near you.

If that scumbag Mike Easley and his buddy the corrupt/slimey Roy Cooper have their way, this trash will be educated in our community colleges.

Visit one of his job sites (currently at Westwood Place/Vandalia)....it's pretty bad. He tells people that his brother knows a lot of people in the city and can get jobs approved when other contractors cannot. I'm going to call INS today and ask them to look into this. I have friends who live next to one of his projects and they have kids.

YOU GO KIDDO!!!!!
ICE is already in Asheville over this shooting. Perhaps they can kill two birds with one stone, ehhh?
Has anyone heard anymore about the SonoPress situation? I am curious. I have to go to Tenn. today and will stop for gas at that station and ask around. Hopefully I can find a good ole boy or girl that will shed a little light on it. I have heard that SonoPress did fire one of the higher-ups out there right after Mumpower snipped their arse a little.....but have not heard anymore.

Keep the email, calls and faxes flowing to our congressmen and represenatives over this illegal invasion!! Shuler seems to be listening, but time will tell.

What a relief the N.C. Alcohol Enforcement agency has seen fit to pull the alcohol license of the Billar Latino pool hall due to the 2 murders. With alcohol removed from the scene, perhaps violence at this pool hall will calm down and the danger this pool hall presents to neighboring business will dissipate, and the clients can concentrate on playing pool.

Illegal Mexicans have not regard for U.S Laws. They will take alcohol and drugs into this business as before. Law enforcement is afraid of them.

They'll claim that it's up to the contractor, just like Walmart did.

Yes, they will and probably do. However, that doesnt make it alright, at least not in my books.

A shooting in asheville and the person charged is hard to find. This is common everywhere, crooks run and hide. They always have.

Two crooks break the law and get killed while hiding from the police. Youth start burning cars,shooting at police. In Paris it is called a riot.
Setting bombs, killing police and US personnel in Iraq is called civil unrest.
In Hendersonville gangs break the law so a task force is setup and an outreach coordinator is needed to understand them.
In years past the "wild west" was tamed by going after the outlaws. Gangs of the 1920's and 30's were taken out the same way. Some were eliminated by tax laws. The mafia was attacked this way.
In all cases if the ones who break the law is arrested and procesuted, the problems will be eliminated.

No, it doesn't. Nor does the "but everyone else is doing it to" argument I hear so often. I'd love to hear why this guy was hiring illegals in the first place, I'll have to ask him when I see him again. It infuriates me so since I live very close to where he has people working now. The Mossberg is ready to go.

How do you know the employees of McDonalds are illegal? They have a strict hiring policy that includes having a valid SSN.
I doubt they are illegal.

After speaking with a Sonopress employee I have several tidbits.

The only "higher-up" that has been dismissed recently was the result of consolidation within the company and its parent company Arvato (spelling?).

My source said that there are duplicate positions that are being eliminated as the two companies consolidate the staff at locations across the US.

As for the alleged illegals.

She (my source), said that ESI is the actual company that the temporary employees are employed by, not Sonopress (although they do work in the building at Sonopress).

A few weeks back there was a meeting at which the President of the company clearly stated that ESI is required by law, and by Sonopress, to check the papers of everyone they hire and if those folks have papers that pass the check (from the Social Security Administrations own records), then there is nothing that either company can do.

She also told me that ICE has been there in the past and found the claims unwarranted.

This lady has worked there for years (actually a secretary to a "higher-up", and I believe her.
