The Philadelphia Inquirer is a liberal rag! Read any of their previous stories about Riverside. The articles ALWAYS portray Riverside as a backward and racist town. Every town has it's fair share of bigots, Riverside included, but this newspaper goes out of it's way to print what the idiots have to say. The intelligent, well-spoken residents who support the ordinance very rarely get quoted in the Inquirer. I've cancelled my subscription and urge others to do so asap.

Riverside is full of white trash. Unemployment is rampant and drunks roam from bar to bar. The only thing they have going is hard working Brazilians.

Please. If I were trash like you, I'd take you up on it. I not only cascade you verbally, but physically you'd be a mess. Beer muscles is a myth.

That's it chocopup, ignorance is the solution. Isolate yourself in biases and hatred. You'll certainly be an effective force in creating more resentment.

Criminals? Let's talk about criminals. Who'd you vote for? War criminals pilferring away our tax dollars? This argument keeps you in the dark to the real world. For this you'll be consumed with attacking honest working immigrants while you rally behind an illusion. There are studies that those who voted for bush are more insecure and less intelligent than the "liberals". You should look it up.
So I welcome your ignorance. In fact you should move down south where home prices are cheap and you can sulk with lack of diversity. No culture required. No knowledge of the rest of the world necessary. Arithmetic, reading and writing are a luxury.

I Celebrate diversity and welcome new ideas.
Yours is niether.

Good evening simple minds.

I work in Manhattan. Something you probably would not be qualified to do. But then again, I am the son of an immigrant and I married an immigrant who fell out of status, thus illegal. She's now also working in manhattan more successfull than you cowards hiding behind rascists waving rebel flags and pink faces drowned in hatred. Just checkout those photos. Rascism is ugly, really ugly. Get off your couch and do something to better yourselves instead of spewing hatred.

Maybe you should follow your own advice and stop spewing hatred, that is all you have done in your many posts. I guess it makes you feel like a big man to insult people from the other side of a keyboard. It is nothing special to work in NYC, they have people washing windshields and hookers on the streets, they are working in NYC.

Damn straight mccbill! Resident is the biggest hypocrite. I am tired of his ugliness and trash spewing nonsense. Maybe if his wife wasn't an illegal at one time then he would feel differently. He is biased.

I've always felt strongly about tolerance towards diversity. Be it gay, immigrant, minority or otherwise. Like I've said I celebrate diversity. I've hired brazilian workers, mexican and others. Always honest work and always pay the going rate.

McCBILL you should try getting out of the country sometime, experience other people, then perhaps you'll be a bit more infomred. Have you ever travelled outside your town? Where? I bet not.

I've put up with bigots like yourselves all my life cause my parent speak spanish and english. Usually the biggest bigots are the disenfranchised who are either unemployed or envigored by am inheritance of ignorance.

By the way English is not the official language, where is this written? Certainly not in our constitution. There is this thing stating all people should be treated equally, it doesn't state whether out of status immigrants.

By the way fellas, this ordinance won't hold up as it is unconstitutional.

The people pushing for the illegals don’t care about Riverside OR this Country, which is pretty obvious just from viewing some of their comments on here. They have an agenda that runs much deeper then protecting the "rights" of "undocumented workers". Actions speak louder then words so take a look for yourself. Below are links to some footage of the various Mexican and Hispanic "Immigrant" groups Rev. Miguel Rivera and his organization CONLAMIC are connected with. See to it that everyone gets a chance to view these videos because the news sure wont show them to you.

Here is another link to a site with a very interesting flash into, please give it a moment to load and be sure to have your volume on. It focuses on the actions of La Rasa (The Race), a violent racist Hispanic group that Mr. Rivera has ties to. This is not a joke, this is what will happen when they become rooted into the community, it's already happend to California.
