Stores are dirty and filthy, because of poor management. Stores are clean when managers and employees take pride in their jobs and in their store's appearance, welcoming in customers.

Way to go WalDump. Cater to and coddle the illegal immigrants in Texas. I hope those thieving illegals rob your damn store blind. No more illegals. Go back to the cesspool you call home, Mexico, and take your stinking gangbanger thug kids with you. Don't forget all your old jualitas too.
Very well put. Makes me want to go to Taco Bueno and gorge. The after affects remind me of what this country is coming to. I am sure glad I have a Mexican housekeeper to take care of my mess. Lord knows I pay her enough, but after looking at her liquor cabinet, you'd be hard pressed to believe she has grand kids.

Maybe you should complain to the people that rent them a place to stay, and the ones who will sell them a house one day.

I gotta agree with the majority of you guys. I have lived in Garland all my life and damn has it changed. I guess it just depends on how much tolerance you have in order to deal with the hispanic invasion(i say this in a humorous tone). I live right across Kingsley from the old Wal-Mart and even worked there for a bit. Horrible management and sloppy shoppers made that place a filthy mess. In defense of the hispanic shoppers let me just say that the white trash shoppers were waaaaaaay worse then the hispanic!!!!! I mean get your kids under control,wear a shirt that fits, tell your wife she's not 18 anymore and not to dress like a hooker when you and the family hit the grocery store on the weekend!!! Then they stand there and piss and moan about all the mexicans ruining this country!!!! Funny stuff, almost made it worth working there to see and hear stuff like that.

I heard from folks down at City Hall that the whole area, Prestige Ford and Old Hypermart are going to be torn down and smaller businesses will be built on the property. Bring back the Drive inn movie that used to be there for Gods sake!!!!

I agree with you 100%. Why the heck do we have to pay for all the babies they pop out every minute? Why do we have to pay for the hospital bills that come with them driving without insurance? Why the hell do they have to rob, steal, rape and kill people just because they are 2 damn lazy to work. They rent 2 bedroom apts then move 4 families into it and no one gives a crap. But let 2 families of white people try to do that and they get thrown out on their butts. I live in an apt complex in garland that does just that. Next door to me there are at least 15 people in a 2 bdrm apt. They have beds set up in the livingroom. When I complain about the noise the apt people say call the cops. Well the cops cant do anything. And another thing is the apts average out water bill by how many apts are in our bldg, which is 6. Well there are only 4 of us in our apt and at least 6 to 15 in the rest. Now that is really fair isnt it. FED UP!!!!!!!!!

Born here, generations back settled most of East Texas. Sorry not a mexican in the bunch. I'm NOT prejudiced, not racist, but I am reasonable. What's happening to this state and to Garland specifically is NOT reasonable.
Why should I have to learn texmex just to be able to know what the hell I'm buying at a grocery store like I do NOW at "mi super"? give me an effin break. Maybe it wouldn't bother me so much if my whole friggin neighborhood with the exception of one other resident within a 5 block area at LEAST, spoke english and didn't act like they just came here to throw garbage in everyone else's yard, park their trucks anywhere they want and steal shopping carts and leave them everywhere and blast their car woofers playing mexican music loud enough to rattle my windows every time they drive down the damn street for starters? Oh and lets not forget that their herd mentality for he most part doesn't include moving out of the way when ANYBODY else walks down the sidewalk or down an aisle, and they all assume WE SHOULD understand their language? If you blindfolded someone and dropped them in Garland they would SWEAR they're in Tiajuana when you removed the blindfold. And lets not leave out the masses on Parkland's healthcare system for low income people which I am also on, and can't get an appointment no matter what the problem is because there are thousands of fraud perpetrators in the system? My husband was denied because the system is too crowded with MEXICANS...That was told to me by and admin AT Parkland. When I last had an appointment and the desk was asking who had an appointment at 8:20 and I asked her to please repeat it in english she GLARED AT ME?! Are we tired of this yet? Tolerance?! you MUST BE JOKING!

All I know is that most people here lump all immigrants together and that is not fair. Some are actually here legally. Some actually want to become citizens and pay their way just like everyone else. If, you believe that some of the policies and laws are to lax and make it too easy on illegal immigrants then write your congressman and senators and push for fair policies and laws to be instated to give citizens first shot at health care benefits and housing. But, don't punish everyone for your anger and frustration. I find it horrible and inhumane how some citizens treat immigrants assuming that all are here illegally and that all are here for a free ride. That is far from the truth.

I agree that they should learn the language. I agree that they should pay taxes and pay their own way and not expect the government or taxpayers to pay for their way.

However, I don't agree with treating them like they are not human, they way I have seen so many Americans do.

isn't "Hispanic Walmart" sort of redundant, especially in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, California?

I think its funny to hear some latinos (more specifically, Mexicans) call themselves a "race"....You are not a separate race, you're actually an ethnic group.....

If the majority of the neighbourhood is Mexican, I see nothing terribly wrong with Walmart tailoring their store to fit the local "Flavor", especially since nobody seems very interested in forcing the latino community to integrate into the mainstream (heck, in the southwest, they ARE the mainstream)...

Times are changing....I happen to love authentic Mexican food, and find lots of good things in Mexican culture too,, especially the focus on family....

We are the greatest culture ever created, thanks for understanding.
Many white boys are now leaving their figureless white girls and finding Hispanic women who treat them right.
White girls are turning to African men, because their men have found a true treasure.
We as Hispanics have the best, religion,food,skin complexion,love,affection,desi res,physique,maturity,and are the most hard workers ever.
Times are changing very fast, Spanish language needs to be taught to all school children.

I refuse to shop at this Walmart. Call me a racist, I do not think the store should be geared to hispanics. I want a Walmart geared to Whites (oh yea that would be racist).

The mayoral race is coming up-

talk to the candidates- tell them your concerns.

Our current mayor had no idea that Dallas was a sanctuary city- in fact all 3 had no idea..

Current mayor signed in a new strip mall for Asians up on Jupiter.

You are absolutely correct in saying that our area of Garland is ignored and left to illegals- while Firewheel is protected.

The budget didnt include our library where it was most needed-

What has Firewheel gotten while sacrifices were made in our names?

Have you gotten your house tax results yet?-

Depressing werent they.

My house, which I bought 15 years ago is now in a ruined mexillegel slum and it's getting worse.. the house across the street is now painted a gay yellow, and there are CHICKENS wandering..

Mexibabies in diapers in the road- unattended-

Ive called CPS twice, I cant tell you HOW many times I call code compliance about mexillegals parking in the yard..

Ive talked to the mayor about the 12 cars and trucks to a small home- and the overcrowding.

Senor Gonzalez keeps jumping the fences in the 'hood to steal whats in the sheds.. I have put up bright spot light- he hasnt attempted it since.

Find out if you have a neighborhood association.

If you dont, create one-- talk to the city councilwoman- she can tell you how its done- she shows up at ours.

A few of our cops show up at our meetings too- their input is invaluable and extremely entertaining.

We are trapped where we are until the economy crisis is over- but we dont have to put up with the crime, drugs and filth the illegals are bringing to our neighborhoods.

Walmart must have recieved agood tax break from Garland to build and in Garland. Do you know how much Wallmart will get in TAX BREAKS in comparison to the local home owners. And will the city or garland get the sales tax from this new store or just a cut of the money. Has onyone checked out the benefits that walmart got from Garland.

First off there is no such thing as a Mexican American, Irish American, African American. When an immigrant comes here legally they leave their home land behind to become an AMERICAN. They may be of Mexican,Irish,African desent but if they are here legally they can only be AMERICAN. They must assimilate to the American culture and language. If a person wants to be anything else besides an American in America they should go back home. I am of Scottish and Irish desent and proud of it but I am an American only.
I wish everyone be just like you. a 100+

No dummy, it is time for us to tell our representatives to do their job- tell our govt to allow our cops to do THEIR jobs-

We already HAVE laws- they need to be enforced.

You have an agenda and I can guess what it is.
