I have to agree with that one too. Your mother land is calling... So get out of ours, please. We have a big enough mess that we do not need you here too... If you want to come to our GREAT LAND, then follow the rule's. We do... Pay taxes and get your papers! Tired of flipping the bills for you, when I have no leway, and we where born here. We work, and take drug tests for the places we work, pay tax's ...IT IS THE AMERICAN way. In a couple weeks you will be flying your Mexican flag's for May 5th.....If you are as proud of your country as we Americans are, then ....GO HOME!!!!!!learn how to speak ENGLISH! We do not like it being the second around here. TTFN

I wanted to thank you for running this news story. Thanks to you we removed the 2 foot diameter plant from our yard tonight. It was here when we bought this house so we had no clue what it was. As a new mother I'm glad to find this out now before my baby is old enough to start playing with it.

I removed all of these plants from my garden since having a horrific experience with the sap on my skin. I was rushed to emergency after my face started to burn and the skin peeled away. I was blinded for almost two weeks and my face was so swollen that I was almost unrecognizable. I thought I would be blinded for life. Fortunately I had a skin barrier cream on my hands and arms so they weren't affected. Believe me, you don't want to mess with these. There is plenty of research to back this up so please be careful.
