Ummm what's your point, if they were here illegally then the police should have handled the situation and whomever would be deported, if not, then this is just a story about some guys who had a close call, and a result of too much alcohol. Which can occur with anyone. So please make your statement specific because it does not make sense regarding the story.

If you live here you would understand the amount of illegals that live here. Further more for your ignoance of what local and state law enforcement know of documents of illegals and even if they are allowed to ask nationality of those met under normal circumstances let alone one where a shooting is involved is my point. go to Okanogan county sheriffs website and look under public records. 50% of those jailed are here illegally or after the charges they have would be inadmissible hope you stay in EWA BEACH

Gee you sound a little Angry paul, no offense but sorry to burst your bubble, first of all Ewa Beach is a beautifull place, and I would love to stay here but unfortunatley I am not able due to the fact my husbands in the Army, second, sorry to burst your bubble but I grew up in Oroville WA, so I do have first hand experience knowing who lives there. Third of all if I asked for specifics maybe the smart thing or the correct thing would have been to elaborate on the story because as someone of a different race might take that in offense, maybe I'm overanalyzing but all I asked for was specifics, because I don't live there I still like to know whats going on. So Mr. best said yet and paul welcome to the new world of America, the land of the free. Dont get me wrong if your not legal you sure as hell shouldn't be here, but you can't put everyone in that category which is why I was asking for specifics. But thankyou for being sooooooo understanding and nice. It's funny when I hear how ignorant people are when they say a final comment like stay in EWA BEACH, a beautifull place! Lets see should I end mine with something rude like KISS MY ASS, nahhh instead I'll say have a good night and thankyou for your opinion.

So what if your husband is in the service so was I ten years, land of the free, absolutely but with laws whom the people break by employing illegals here. As far as specifics go you will not get any because politicians (even when you lived here) have recieved huge donations and tax revenue from agriculture in the valley. As far as your beautiful island keep it been there done that as well. before you have a good night just remember I did not put everybody in a catagorey just the majority see who they are with alittle research (I also told you where to look)AND MOST IMPORTANTLY YET, YOUR HUSBANDS, MINE AND EVERYOTHER PERSON WHO HAS SERVED THIS COUNTRY LIVED WHERE THE SERVICE PUT THEM AMONG OTHER SACRIFICES IS WORTHLESS AS WE CONTINUE TO PISS AWAY OUR COUNTRY BY ALLOWING ILLEGALS TO REMAIN HERE
PERSONS WHO HAS SERVED THIS COUNTRY

Paul let me tell you this about illegals in the state of WA, and this probably applies anywhere. Are you going to go to do all the agricultural work? When I use to go work in the Orchard, I wouldn't see one White-American guy out there in the field working. If its not us then who?

Ill chime in here, No Jose, I/ we wont do the agricultural work. The mexicans will continue to do it, and as always we will continue to pay them. the only difference will be that after the harvest they,( meaning the mexicans) will go back home until the next harvest.

see, how that works? the mexicans want to come here and work, and thats okay, only instead of staying, they will go home until they are rehired again. AND THATS HOW IT'S SUPPOSED TO WORK!..if they stay, they should be deported and not allowed back in..very simple..working here temporarily does not mean you have permission to stay

The underground labor force is never discussed much, but it's everywhere, not just in Oroville. My son-in-law competes with illegal Hispanic roofers in Stanwood, Wa. This underground economy is everywhere, mostly ignored by us white folks unless we have to work in the labor trades, from cherry picker to journeyman roofer or whatever. Jose isn't going back to Mexico, he's staying as long as we conveniently ignore the fact big business WANTS Jose here.
Unions?
Don't make me laugh!
I've heard the rumors of large agriculture holding Hispanics virtually hostage on the orchard land out of sight and busing them in mass to the jobs wherever they are in the Okanogan Valley and busing them back, with no chance for a free life and lots taken out of already low wages for "housing and transportation". Who are all those workers in the background of the landscaping programs on Home and Garten TV? Guys like Jose who's gonna be here for a long time, realistically.
But what do I know?
I live in Republic, up in the hills.
