I am a proud portuguese woman. My parents immigrated from Portugal and lived in Riverside until they married and then moved. Riverside is full of hard-working people. It's the white trash that is in Riverside that is the problem. These brazilians come here for a better life. They work, have kids and practice religion WEEKLY,(something MOST people do not do). They are not the problem. It's the bums sitting on the corners with names like JOHN SMITH that are the problem. Riverside is just looking for an excuse to clean up the streets. The Funny thing is, the people speaking out about this problem are the people causing it, not the illegal immigrants who come here for a better life!!!
HOW CAB AN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT LIKE YOU CALL ANYONE WHITE TRASH.
THOSE 3,500 ILLEGALS OUT OF 8,000 PEOPLE IN RIVERSIDE HAVE NO SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS, DON'T PAY TAXES, AND WORK UNDER THE TABLE WHILE RECEIVING WELFARE FREE HEALTH CARE, FREE EDUCATION, FREE HOUSING, FREE UTILITES. AND IF THEY WORK??/ IT IS UNDER THE TABLE.

everyone keep turning this all around to make this look like some kind of race issue. Its not, Its about them breaking the law and getting off scott free. Riverside has a very diverse community, with portugese, brazilians, spanish, you didnt see us holding signs tell them to get out. I dont know of a single illegal portugese person that lives in that town, you know why? becuase they come to America and do it legally.
