Full story: The Miami Herald

Soila Gallegos, a Mexican immigrant, pointed Thursday to the deserted streets in downtown Homestead -- usually crowded with immigrant workers -- and shook her head in despair.

If you are not a criminal you have nothing to fear. And if you are here illegally you NEED to be rounded up and shipped back to your country of origin IMMEDIATELY. Pity criminals. I don't think so. GO HOME!

The employers should not just get harsh fines but jail time as well - after all - by paying illegals under the counter - besides breaking U.S. Immigration laws - they are also cheating out the IRS from taxing these "employees"...

Why the hell are they waving the Mexican flag in the U.S.?
Is that what they mean by "assimilate?"

I do not know about where you live, but, you can tell a mexican duely even from behind, it has the mexican flag in the back glass or either painted on the side. The businesses have mexican flags flying. This is to me intimidation..I think we are giving these little taco eaters not enough credit, they are coming on hard and they have powerful leaders and this is all well commandeered.

I'm not sure where you live Sharon,(sounds like you may be around LA) but this intimidation will back-fire. Americans are going to reasent feeling so intimidated by illegals who invade our country. I think in the end... I will hurt them more than help their cause.

I believe, we should fine the farmer for hiring them to work way below minimum wage, the bussiness for not making sure they are leggal, and the damn slum lord who let's them live 15 people to a house. Not to mention all thier stupid looking mustang G.T's with big fin's on them parked in the front yard. Looks like a damn car lot. Don't make new laws, If you are here illegaly, you have no right's! Got it! We screwed this up way back when we let convicted inmates have rights. Once your convicted you have no right's. So don't do the f'ing crime. But some blood money public defender will get them off. We all need to meet somewhere and do a march. I bet the there are more Americans then illegals. The only way they are heard so loud is because they actually do it and not talk about it.
