I really think something should be done about illeagles. They are causing trouble in our schools,they are taking up jobs that americans would do,look at all the construction around here it's not american men you see working.Look at our housing, everywhere you look there are mexican people living there sneaking in all there relatives, they move in and out so much you never know who your neighbors are that's just not safe.

Yes something should be done.I live alone in a apt house in siloam springs with 2 other apts full of them. There is always someone new in and out and it is dangerous.I think they have no considaration for the way things are done here.I have lived here all my life and have never seen so many mexicans in this town.I say( send them home).

the spaniards are doing what they must for a better life the only way they can.The oppretunities they have in their country are very limited.What must be done is to rebiuld the moral and political systems in mexico.other wise things will not improve.We can send them home and maybe we should so they will revolt for higher means.

We are all doing things the best way we can. But speaking for myself and most people i know, we are doing it legally! It's against the law any way you look at it. And if there here illeagelly then they must live that way here right? these are some of the problems we are all paying for.

i agree so much!! i know there are mexican people who were born here and lived here all there lives they are not the issue. the people who sneak in amd steal, rape, molest children, kill and sell drugs are the issue. any money they make legal or otherwise they send back to there famlies in mexico, how does that impact our economy? i myself am watching the presidential candidates and listening to there views on a solution for this problem. i hope someone comes up wit something....quick

Immigrants don't steal jobs. Work harder, or go to college! Obviously if they get hired and you don't it's because they can do a better job! they sure are hard workers!

Hispanics are no over populating Siloam Springs any more than anywhere else in the U.S. The area has jobs that locals will not or cannot do. The same is true here in Georgia. Poultry companies and canning companies offer the Mexican nationals jobs that they don't have in Mexico. Mexico is a corrupt, drug dominated society and until that is addressed Mexican nationals will continue to come north. Is it right? Not for them to be here illegally, no. They pay taxes and buy products, adding to the local economy. They do live a lifestyle different from locals, yes. What answer does Simmons, Tyson's, Allens, etc, have but to hire them? When Obama becomes president, then watch out. You will wish things were like they are now.

It's called freedom of speech. This is the USA where men die everyday so we can have it.

how racist are we? there are illegal immigrants everywhere who take a lot of jobs, i agree, but there are also illegal immigrants serving in our military; doing anything they can to survive in a 'better' country! This is a hard issue to choose sides on.
on the skeptical side, even where I live there are illegals causing crime, taking jobs, and causing trouble. But there are also illegals working so hard just to survive and they came here with the intention of doing ANYTHING for the better of their families.
these people are desperate and we should do all we can to help them. It's not just about punishing crime, it's about prevention as well.
Like I said, this is a hard issue to 'take sides' on and I'm in the middle as well.
But please open your minds and try to be receptive and loving. We don't know their stories and should help out.

I probably know more about Siloam Springs than you do. I was born there and spent most of my adult life there. Siloam Springs has similar problems/situations with Hispanics that Georgia has since both have poultry processing plants and food processing plants. Siloam Springs' folks need to become part of the rest of the world and not so closed.

I've lived here 36 years so i doubt you know any more about it than i do! On the subject of ss folks opening up and becoming like the rest of the world well why would we want to do that?

To continue: i had always considered ss a safe place to live that has changed.I always admired how clean ss looked that has changed.Just a couple of things from a long list of things that have changed since so many illegals were moved in.Not to mention the increase in drug activity.So yea i can say i know a lot about my home town.A whole lot about how it is deteriating right before my eyes.

And then there are those who are not illegals causing crimes (aka sex offenders mostly whitle males), issues in the community. They sell drugs they lie they cheat, they steal, they dont want to work so a lot of the illegals get the jobs. And didnt our founding fathers come here to seek a better opportunity and religious freedom away from England ??? SO what do you guys think illegals are doing ?????

As long as our goverment pampers them with our tax dollars, this is what we will continu seeing. Are school now make are children learn spanish knowing we'll never send are children there. I mean they didnt want to stay in there own home land so it damn sure isnt good enough for our kids. They come here they need to learn our coulture, not the other way around. The minute men in texas needs to be left along and let them take them out in bunches. Hatred is an american right. We either like or we dont, SIS! Yes it is a FREEDOM OF SPEECH the american way.
