Even here in texas the politicians use illegals as a political game of seperate the people and get the votes. But if they want the illegas to be back in their own country why don't they just have ou imigration laws enforced as they politicize so much propaganda for. If the politicians want to stop illegals they have the power to so by law enforcement of the laws we already have in our law books. the laws are there;; but the power of enforcement is not. But the political game goes on.

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.
OK, this is the deal,we want to change all this in our life time ?ALL this is being goin on for centuries,we have to play heroes now?REGARDLESS what we do,will never do,you might terminated some individuals but will remaing the same or get worst,see if you ask a white dude to mow you lawn he ask you for $30.00 then you pick a random person or hispanic, ask to do the same, what would you rather pay $30.00 or $15.00,To buy a house ,car any transportation,groceries,etc. To rent housing THE owners or managers landlords who would they rather do bussines w/banks or cash involved.THINK again, NOW who is the damie here,them--you,or me??

Now it used to be white flight. a blasck person moves into the neighbor hood and it began, white flight. then it was the blacks were going to over populate the country. Now it is brown that is coming and they are going to take over. yyes the same old tired story. They tried to exterminate the different indian tribes for the same reason. Only they were the ones moving into the neighborhood. Taking the land and valuables.,whites that is. this same scenario is now occurring in the arabic lands as it is even occurring in our country now. Skin color sure creates havoc and fear that is used and spread by politicians here and in other countries. It even happened in european countries for several hundred years. Caused modtly by greed from those who wanted more wealth by using those of lesser means to get what the wealthy wanted: more wealth. It occurred here to recently by people taking advantage of fpeople wanting a home:so the wealthy had an opportunity to loot our banks. same scenario just diferent tactics. Migration of people of minority origins wil not cease and will continue to come to our country whether legaly or illegaly to seek a better way of life. they are just used once agin pro and con by politicians to help their own political gains. If the republicans wanted to close our bordersthen why did they not do this when they had comtrol of both houses till 2006?? they did not want to,they would loose a political football to toss around for use in politics. Besides big business ,their backers, did not want the border closed and even the democrats do not have the political will to close the border to illegal entry. case closed.

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!
I am MEXICAN! I understand some of what you are talking about and having 8 generations here when this land was MEXICO welll let me tell you I also have some issues with the loud music and such. I like some spanish music not all. As you the medical.... REALY I hope that you tore her a new asshole and demanded to get your husband in. I dont care if you are red or green If someone said that I could not get a loved one in because white people... too many white people???? ther would be some ass kicking and I would have stood up for what was right and get rid of the white,brown and black thing. Not all of us are illegal and not all of us are bad... Hope you can use your anger for the MEXICANS and do something productive... I would if some one would do you, the white person an injustice.... peace in your hart and good luck.

This is the problem,,, People keep talking about diversity and "Immigrants" and melting pot. What it is is "ILLEGAL ALIENS" who are freeloading stealing jobs and commiting crimes at our (The American Taxpayers) expense. Citizens of the US and LEGAL immigrants should be mad as hell about this. I grew up in Garland and I am extremely ashamed that my home town is now a sanctuary city. If it weren't for my mom and sister still living there I would never return as much as I love Garland.

I am white and I think that diversity is a good thing. I love learning about other ethnic foods and cultures. Many of our hispanic neighbors are legally here and they should be able to find and enjoy ethnic foods for their families. I love to cook and we have a growing hispanic population here in Garland. I am proud to be married to a born and bred puerto rican american and I am excited about the changes. I hope that they will invest in remodeling the store and making it clean and inviting for all to come and enjoy. The United States of America is a country filled with immigrants. I am an Irish American 6th generation and I believe majority of us have ancestors that came from some where else originally. The only ones who are not immigrants are the American Indians. Who are we to deny immigrants that are legally here? The diversity of our city, state and country is what makes this place we call home, so wonderful a melting pot brimming with diversity, wonderful ethnic foods and cultures.

But our ancestors assimulated and learned the american culture and language. My wife is of mexican heritige and her parents wouldn't let them or teach them spanish.. they told them they are now american citizens and we speak english here. Both her and her brother are proud to be of there race and cook there ethnic foods. BUT THEY SPEAK ENGLISH, and live buy the american way....

IM glad there is a God up there who forgives! A person who can judge another based on the color of ones skin, the language we speak, or if we are "legal" here does not have love in there hearts! I BELIEVE people like this must feel so bad about themselves that they have to find something to fight against to make themselves feel better about there life! Its really heartbreaking that i was born into a country that can treat good people as if they are common criminals based on a couple pieces of paper! In that case we are all imigrants, or did we forget how we aquiered this country!! im glad not all us Americans have the same beliefs!! We are all unique individuals but created the same! Just ask yourself this question: What does God think of all this? dont u think it must hurt him to see us being unfair to his children!! Treat everyone as your equal!! Be kind!!! Love,Live, and Laugh!!!

Is there something wrong with catering to the desires of the hispanic population that is here legally?
Damn right there is! They fled their country because they didn't have the balls or pride to stand up and defend it from corruption, drug dealers and let it go to ruin.
Secondly, they are committing a crime and should be captured, prosecuted and deported.
This us what they would do to you, stupid.
Third, we are at war and terrorists can just as easily cross our borders and they would be shot, right? Can you tell the difference between Raul and Achmed?
Fourth, they take less wages and jobs meant for
AMERICAN TAX PAYING LEGAL CITIZENS.s.You say jobs nobody wants but
excons, mentally challenged and undeteducated US citizens will take them.
These filthy wetbacks deliberately get pregnant and time their Exodus to use their anchor babies and receive government ASSISTANCE-YOUR TAX DOLLARS, and even rob our social security system, even send billions in unreported illegal earnings to Mexico to others to pay coyotes.
They destroy property values by parking cars on front lawns, play their annoying music loud and paint their houses bizarre colors, while violating healthcodes with far too many occupants.
They can't drive worth a crap (know of any famous Latin racecar drivers?) But they learned to drive on burros and didn't have insurance then either.
They love to get drunk and fight and celebrate their machismo when in fact most Latin men have poquito vergas! Hahaha
So if you want to welcome them and endure all this crap and embrace these cowards who will never stand up to defend America, then go ahead.
But when you wake up in Tijuana hell don't come crying to me!
