Everyone should come and take a walk down the city streets on a Friday night. You won't see any Americans or hear English spoken anywhere. The City has been over run by hundres of Illegal Aliens, who are Fugitives from Justice. The crime rate has climed so hight another Police Officer had to be added. Most every weekend there are stabings, shootings, and gang fights. Yet there is a vail of security here. It is so securet, the news paper forgets to print it. The School System forces all student to speek spanish two days a week. If you ever wanted to know what is was like living in Old Mexico, come to Postville.

George you make Postville sounds like a shit hole. Well it's NOT. If you go out on a friday night there are American kids walking around along with the Hispanics. You make it sound like every corner you go around there is something bad going on! The local papers do print what goes on in the paper. If you open your eye maybe you could read. The stabing, shooting, and gang fights do not happen as often as you think!

when i came to this country, i did so with much pride, respect, and thankfullness! and still feel the same some 20 years later. pride because i was now an american. yes i am of puerto rican decent but i am an american! i came here with much respect-enough to learn and speak the language, so i can communicate with other americans! yes my native language is still used when appropriate. thankfull that i was given the chance to live the life-in america,as an american-that so many immigrants long for. i for one would not be here if life was so wonderful in my old country. be proud to be an american-or go back to where you came from!!!

i came here from another country, i wanted to be an american, i yearned for the life of an american, i did what was asked of me to become an american, yes it was a long and sometimes frustrating process, but one i would do as many times as necessary...i was given the chance to get away from everything so many puerto rican people could only dream of leaving. those captured illegals are very lucky they got caught in america, they should be very grateful for any punishment they recieve, they know what would become of them had they been on other soil!!!
