The only thing Crossroads does is enable illegal Mexicans who travel here. This is their first stop in estes Park. I worked here for years until I got tired of helping illegals instead of our own Americans. This use to be a non-profit only but we have a few people who are getting paid a good salary for other people and businesses to donate. Once again, estes Park people who are getting the full story! Check out the school students and what use to be our hospital

is why I no longer give to Crossroads. I pay taxes and I'm not going to help support the lazy sucking off of non profits and the government. This town used to hold everyone responsible for making ends meet and now the liberals have migrated from boulder county and it is going to pot.(But you can't grow it)

took a young caucasian couple there for help, they were put through the hoops, and while I was outside waiting for them, a mexican man drove up in a BRAND NEW FORD ESCALADE, stood out side on his i-phone, texting whomever, while his wife and kids went inside for free handouts and rent help, pretty sad really, that there is more benefit to being here illegally than to work and be born here. I am so tired of hearing about all the perks such as in state tuition, and free food and money for breaking the law, if I break the law, I get arrested and charged, but again, for some reason, it's ILLEGAL for law enforcement to ask a persons legal status, what is wrong with this country?

Boy, no kidding!
You can't walk the downtown sidewalks for all the mexicans getting in the way.
Have you tried shopping at Safeway! All they sell now are tortilla's and refried beans!
Any time you see pictures of students in the "newspaper" they are ALL MEXICAN!
How in the world, with all the budget cutting will they ever be able to plant and maintain all the Socorro cactus' that will be needed when the school students throw colorful blankets over their shoulders and pull their sombrero's down over their eyes for their mid morning siesta?
And those poor downtrodden white students, all sitting in the back of the classroom in their "Little Lord Fauntleroy" suits, trying their best to understand the study books written in spanish, desperately holding their hands in the air. Pleading with Se˝or Gutierrez, "PLease Sir, May I have some lurnin!?!"
You know, it has been all down hill since Lincoln let all the good help go!
I read this bullhockey and it starts to look like the best thing coming out of Estes is Hwy 36.

Several years ago, with a big load of donations I asked the question of Crossroads: "Are the folks that receive assistance here, citizens?" I was nearly crucified for asking such an incendiary question. I was told they are certainly not, and many of the people being helped are children etc etc etc. As I was there, not one English word was spoken in the reception area, except my conversation. I believe that if our society continues to assist those illegally living and working in this country, the illegal problems will continue to rise. It seems that we treat illegals with more respect and benefit, like we're afraid of offending them. than US citizens down on their luck. I no longer support Crossroads, and haven't for several years.

No wonder the school enrollment is declining. White flight. This town is headed to be Pocita Mexico and retirees that will support them. That's it! So glad I moved. Talk about a drain on the economy aleibt California.

Where have you been the last 10 years? The Mexicans have been infesting Estes Park for at least that long. Just like our USA we all of a sudden open our eyes and say whow! What's happened? It's to late to deal with illegal aliens. Instead we give them more and more handouts including in state college tuition. They know exaclty where to go for freebies and what to do. It's like an underground culture. Our police dept does nothing, the county does nothing, the state does nothing, the fedral govt does nothing and that's why this defamation of the great USA will continue. ICE tries but it is overwhelmed and is being hit by the very sequestration that Obama proposed in 2011. Be careful what you wish for Mr. President NOW YOU GOT IT.

is really entertaining itself today! Hard to tell where the bi-polar troll - bouncing between ISP's and talking to itself - begins or ends!

Want to see fewer undocumented in the Estes Valley? Demand that the retirees hire legal citizens and stop expecting something for nothing! They retirees live here and get their house improvements and yardwork done for pennies by hiring illegals while they are off at their tea-bag "I don't wanna pay tax on anything" meetings, and then they wash their sins away at one of the born-again temples. That's the Estes Valley for you!

I heard a story kinda like this.

There was this guy who worked hard all his life.
He paid his tax's, served in the military and still had the forethought and dedication on his salary to save enough money to buy his-self an new Escalade and an iPhone.

He was an honorable man, when his brother in arms stepped on an IED and blew his legs off, he never forgot the promise he made to him through the blood curdling screams as he bled out and died to look after his wife and kids.

After a sweat drenched nightmare due to his PTSD woke him up he decided it was time to look in on his brothers family only to discover that without father and husband the family was having a very hard time making ends meet.

He remembered this place called Crossroads where he sometimes donated old clothes and canned goods and decided it was the short answer to the hard hit families problems.

He loaded up the grateful family and drove them there to maybe pick up a loaf of bread and a carton of milk to get them through the hard times.

As this family went inside he stayed outside to enjoy the beauty of the country that he had fought so valiantly to keep free.

While standing there, up rolled a car full of waddling clan members on their weekly freebie grab.

Standing by the truck he had worked so hard to buy he was taken aback by the complaining and whining of the clan member about how Crossroads was helping the nonwhite family.

He decided to text his platoon leader that he had always kept in touch with to calm him down.

It worked, his platoon leader reminded him that he fought for the freedom of this racist jackass just as much as he fought for everyone else and when the family came back outside with the meager sack of groceries he calmly loaded them up and drove them home.

Hmm.
