What's the deal with those people? I've seen them setting up their banner in front of the store. The banner says "shame on food city. I've also seen one for Blalock's. What is their dispute?

The illegals are still working and US citizens are not? It is the responsibility of the employer to verify eligibility to work here. Who is the employer? Is it a contractor or Food City?

There's a problem I have with your statement. You state "stupid mexican". If the stupid ones have jobs and the smart ones do not, who is smarter? You sound like a victim. Get some help.

The motel behind Waldin's Landing has 50-75 mexicans working there. The police should raid that place if they weren't paid off by the contractor!

You must be a dumb ass if you think the police get compensation for allowoing illegals to work. Imigration by orders of idiots like obammy and staff are not allowed to go to round up these dirtbags. It is the employer who should be held responsible, they can check social security numbers of their employees to see if they are valid or not.

At what point did the Obama administration outlaw the illegal alien roundup? I understand P.O. needs to address this problem but it's nothing new. Our borders have not EVER been secure. in fact until recently anybody could walk or drive across either of our borders without any trouble at all.

Employers are required to document the eligibility of a person to work in the USA. They are not required to verify the documents are not forged. How many HR managers even care? Their job is to fill positions.

They are boycotting businesses that hire non union employees only.

as someone who loves the area, the mountains and would love to move to the area, i can feel everyone's pain, as a memphian, we are plagued with illegals, of course, you know the rest of the story, as with your comments, same thing still applies here.
i dont understand it, i do work full time and plan to retire next year and have had the same job for 30 years with good benefits, thankfully and i am so very thankful for that. I have always worked a part time job for extra $$$ and have filled out numerous applications over and over, cannot find one.
maybe part of it is my age but i have no arrests,
no alcohol or drug issues, etc... and still cannot find a part time position. i know it has to be harder in sevier county as it is smaller and after december i am sure business, tourists, etc goes way down. whats the answer? do you shoot all of them crossing the border? can they do that? lock them up and return them to mexico? i dont get it.
I never thought i would live to the USA in such a mess. At least you guys have the scenery there, it is beautiful there. Good luck guys>>>>

I know how you'll feel about this people taking your jobs. should they go about it the legal way? yes! BUT it will not happen today tomorrow next next week or even next year! may be ever!It will never change! WE, will at one point take over this land just like the WHITES took over this land and stoled it from the true AMERICANS... think about it. It's a cycle what what gose around comes around. You had your chance and you lost it. now we will take a chance and take this land. this land was not lost and why was it claimed to be found you killed good people to still this land and you hunged good hard working poeple to ketp them from owning some of this land, you put the true Americans in a area that you could control, and ketp them like prisoners, called them savages and the African American you did and still do call them by the N... word and you been call us this Mexicans! wet backs!!! what makes you better than any of us? now your talking about shooting them crossing the border. The USA is in such a mess becouse you the FEARFUL have destroyed this country and do not have the balls to exectp the fact that you messed it up. And yes I was Born here in the United Sates of America 4th gen. just like all of you hippos. that your families came from other parts of the world to still a piace if the Pie... don't be scared of what you out there if you really want a job walk out that door and you can find a job don't blame other poeple who have jobs just becose you're to lazy to get of your ass from that couch.

Maybe because the hispanic population actually want to work and not live off welfare. I would rather hire a hard working Mexican any day than someone that will work a couple weeks and then quit.

You would rather hire a hard working Mexican because you can pay them under the table and pay them crumbs compared to what you would have to pay an American worker and have a few extra bucks to stick in your pockets. And, unlike us Americans they will keep their mouths shut and not complain when you treat them like slaves because they don't know any better and because they are here illegally. That's the REAL reason why you like to hire a Mexican worker. Who do you think you're fooling?

I have to let all you people that are calling every Latino here "Mexicans" that not every hispanic you people see is Mexican there is Hondurans puerto rican Dominican there is no need to just say mexicans. And by what iv seen Hispanics do a much better job and actualy care about it and work hard then most Americans. And mtnlover47 they do know better and they are not all iligaly. And obviously they do a great job cause they are getting hired in the first. Don't be steriotypical!
