Reaction to immigrant raid

Reaction to immigrant raid

There are 120 comments on the WHOI story from Apr 5, 2007, titled Reaction to immigrant raid. In it, WHOI reports that:

“We are being invaded as our government turns a blind eye because of lobbyist and small special interest groups. Iraq is not a danger to the people of the United States. The invasion from Mexico is the real danger to our quality and way of life.”

The 13 people accused of helping illegal immigrants get fake ID's to work at the Cargill Plant in Beardstown made their first court appearance Thursday. via WHOI

I lived in Beradtown and i didnt here any complaints at all. Drugs have always existed and they will always exixt even if we pack our bags! and by the way i see "Americans" that speed all the time and smoke weed, drink and who knows what else they consume when there hanging out in front of save a lot and the riverview, so dont act all innocent!!!!!!! I see lots of Americans that are happy and that i now are happy. Some even get married with Mexicans. We are not making you move! But if you want to go head and move, but you know what you are giving us more space, and giving us control over you. Just think about it?
True but you know the difference between between the white people doing this crap, and you mexicans..*SOME of you mexicans... WE ARE LEGAL, born and raised here. We don't need a GREEN CARD, COMPRENDE?(sp) I hear complaints ALL the time. Of course you wouldnt hear complaints maybe you dont hear english very well, possibly? As for drugs, im pretty sure my mexican neighbors are DRUG DEALERS, witnessed with my own eyes.. And cocaine was a problem but not as bad as it is now with ILLGAL drugs coming across the border. What kind of patrol do they have at that border anyway? maybe they should start using GUNS!

So, you admit you are a criminal. Nice. Pack your bags, you illegal, and go back!
You know Americans who get married WITH Mexicans? How does that work? They're planning a wedding and they make sure to have a bunch of Mexicans there? Are they guests or are they working? And besides that, who cares who is at a wedding?
Lastly, you moron, WE HAVE ENOUGH HOMEGROWN CRIMINALS; WE DO NOT NEED TO IMPORT MORE [from other countries, much less illegal ones]. If we have 80 Americans committing crimes and 20 illegals committing crimes, getting rid of the illegals means 20 less crimes, which means that much more time for law enforcement to work on the crimes committed by Americans, which leads to a better chance of those crimes being solved! Do you get that? Or is that too difficult for your pea brain to comprehend?
hey rebel the only reason mexicans marry the white girls are to become legal, not to mention ive never seen a mexican with a pretty NORMAL size white girl anyway. what gives :)

What? No they're not. They're getting an IRS nightmare of fines, late fees and who knows what else for unreported income that those people weren't even aware they were making, and they're getting ruined credit, so buying a house or car is next to impossible, and they're getting years of a nightmare trying to fix the disaster the illegal made for them.

No, I haven't. And you are likely right -- it's a green card marriage.

i know for a fact that this has been done for years now at that plant. I was raised all my life in that area and I prev worked for Cargill/ excel. I have alot of conflicting feelings about illegal immagrants. 1st they never missed work, they were always there and they worked very hard. On the other hand most ddnt spk any english which I have a problem w. and of course them not paying taxes. But I also saw and know of another very big problem that they brought w/ them which is drugs. The drugs were there before they came , but after they came it became HUGE ! I eventually left that area and to this day that is one of the reason I have no desire to go back. Now I work in another industry where we deal w/ alot of people who are here illegally and now there is a HUGE problem w/ id theft which also effects the economy because they DONT PAY THEIR BILLS!!!! So I am very happy to see some reform w/ the illegal immigrant situation

No one is questioning the ability of anyone to work or how hard one works or even if they want to become a citizen of the U.S. That would mean loyalty to your new country and entering the proper way. There are list of people waiting to become a U.S. citizen why do some people here think it's OK? If you are black,white,Latino,Asia and you where the next in line and you been waiting your turn for days or even hours and a group of people that just there walked right past you. you'd be pissed even if they were the same ethic group as you. If you say no your lying. You want that stopped. That is not even covering the free education and medical treatment that "illgeals" receive not just Mexican illegals. The Mexican, Latino, Hispanic Americans need to step-up and help curb this problem. It will not help there cause to keep pushing for this free for all immigration thing. The more turmoil the hard the path will become. No one like to have anything shoved in there face like or not the Mexico immigration problem is been shoved in American faces ALL AMERICANS.
I also feel that Americans should be at least bi-lingual be it French (our north friends) or Spanish (Our Friends to the south) Not because there are so many Hispanic people in the U.S but it's the right thing to do. BUTTT with all this turmoil coming from the south of us this being looked at knuckling under and will be fought every step of the way. The sooner we all stop the illegal flood of people into the U.S "citizen as well as Illegal that are here the sooner we will become one Nation.

ya know, I grew up in illinois, had one spanish friend in grade school. But after I have lived out in california for 10 years, I don't care much for illegals. The American taxpayer has to shell out so much for bilinguilism, Americans who don't speak spanish,can't get jobs. It's always cater to the mexicans,blacks or what ever and screw the poor whiteman who has to work. And I'm not talking about middleclass etc. The actual poor who honestly have to work for nothing. It is getting harder and harder to get work,because all the other ethnic groups seem to get first dibs. Mexicans work, but most of their work is crummy. They talk bad about Americans in front of us, and then they want our jobs etc. I don't feel sorry for them and I don't hate them,even though they hate us, I'm just tired of hearing all their hardluck stories when this country has plenty of them already.
