Why didn't the PT find out if the Brown Pride Locos gang is still in full effect over there? Didn't that incur a swat team going after them not too long ago? Tourists should be informed of the measure of possiblility of a "thrill ride" of gang violence in Catalina, since it's been reported on before.

Well who is doing the hiring for these businesses. Apparently the owners. Put pressure on the owners to hire english speaking people. Then the illegals will have to move if they don't find jobs.

My wife and I spent a weekend there several months ago. We we offered crack, methamphetamine and marijuana by the roving gangs on the beachfront. It was scary placed to be after the sun set. The days were nice, but nightime brought out an element that I did not expect.

Read the post. Catalina hotels/restaurants ship in illegals, pay low wages, the illegals have babies, the babies grow up watching TV, getting down with the bling bling, decide working like a dog for chump change like their parents isn't for them, talk amongst themselves, don't really assimilate, and join a gang.
Catalina deserves what they're getting. They asked for it by importing illegals.
are you talking about Long Beach or Catalina ?
