Dream town what for who? My little brother went to look at some houses to buy and 3 of the 5 homes that he wanted to look at were surrounded by people that couldn't even speak english. The realitor even told them that the property value has been comming down because of all the mexicans moving into town. Now im not some rasist redneck im actually from Chicago so dont even try it. I just think it is sad that Alabama is having a major influx of illegals comming into it and the people that are in Albertville are moving out just because there kids cant even play with the neighbors kids cause even the kids don't speek english this is just so sad. So I think Albertville needs to be added to the list for dream towns for mexicans cause for the past year that I have been back down here I have not heard andything but bad news from everybody that I have spoke with no not all rednecks either. Oh and to boot my little brothers wife's parents that have lived there for 25 yrs now can't even sell thier paid off house for way less thaan what its worth cause of the mexicans movin in. I know there is gonna be someone that is gonna say im closed minded so b4 you even do. I am white and have dates all diffrent kinds of races I just think it is rude to move to a country and you cant even talk to the people at Mc D's to order a burger. Really how would any of you out there like to have your hose lose most of its value do to just the neighbors that live in your neighborhood??

Is this a joke or is this comment for real??Unbelievable to say the least!! I haven't laughed this hard in months. After reading this, I do believe the "Mexicans" can speak better english than this racist!!

This must be made up, if not Dog your brothers wife and her parents should fire the real estate agent.Sounds like they may be a distant relative. I can tell Albertville is probably not the town of your dreams.Maybe you and the family ought to to take the wheels off the house and drag it on back to LaGrange.....please.

Maybe you need to call your English teacher and tell them you received no education because you cannot properly spell or make a complete sentence. Just because you already took the wheels off your home and put it up on blocks does not make you any better.

I really believe that Hispanics should learn the English language, but I also belive that Americans who have lived here all their lives should be able to speak and write English as well. I would be embarrassed to criticize some else's inability to speak a language when I could not speak it properly meself.
