Its sad that 100's of americans will stand in line for hours to put in an application at Mount Vernon Mills in Trion GA. Many of these americans could have a job if Mount Vernon would get rid of all of the illegal immigrants working there now. I am an employee there and when immigrants are arrested and put in the busted paper under another name and it is brought up to supervisors nothing is done.

Mount Vernon doesn't care.
ICE doesn't care. GBI doesn't care.
Local SO doesn't care. Feds don't care.
It's really sad.

I agree with every one of you. They want to make sure that they get to keep their tax breaks because hispanics don't have to pay taxes. I, however, am not prejudiced. I have some hispanic friends. However, it isn't fair that the majority come over the border illegally, take our jobs and in most instances get to make twice the money that true americans make doing that exact same job.

legal immigrants pay taxs just like we do. illegal immigrants working at mvm or anywhere where taxs are withheld have taxs withheld from their checks like everyone else only they can't claim refunds. google it if you don't believe me

Isn't it better to keep your mouth closed then to open it and spew ignorance???

Legal or illegal, if they work a job where taxes are withheld, the taxes are withheld on them too!

You would think with the age of technology that we have, people would use Google more!!

They pay taxes all right. All year they claim 8 dependents and have almost nothing withheld. Check with someone in the know at MVM. It's the same as everywhere else.

You cannot work at a taxpaying job and not pay taxes! Can you get more common sense please??

Yes, some of them do put as many dependents as they can but so do Americans! And the IRS catches up to them at some point!

PLEASE>>>>They take all these jobs from Americans?? If the Americans hadn't been so lazy and already doing these jobs, there wouldn't be jobs to take would there?? More common sense!

People want to blame all the problems in the US on illegals but we have far more problems than that and other people to blame for it! How about the Bush administration??

Sorry Sparky, You're wrong...The Good White Folks of Summerville are too lazy to work...I trained both white and Hispanic workers at MVM and I KNOW.

It's true that Hispanics work hard. It's true that Hispanics shack up with white girls on welfare. It's true that Hispanics claim the maximum number of dependents, and it's true that white people would rather piss and moan about their job and lay out half the time. Everybody wants to blame Mexicans for all this. They(mexicans) are only trying to live a better lifestyle and take care of their families. I think everyone should play by the same rules and laws, but thanks to greedy companies, this just isn't the case. I guess the ignorant ones feel better by getting on here and talking bad about other human beings because they are doing what they have to to survive. Remember this, if you were worth anything in the first place, a Mexican wouldn't be doing your job.

We are talking about all illegal immigrants. Was not talking about taxes!! Where do you get that mexicans are hard workers i work in mvm and most sleep on the job and act like they dont know how to speak english when you tell them to do something. And i do work and take care of my family i work five nights a week twelve hours. And how can you say americans are lazy? Where would america be now without HARD WORKING AMERICANS??

Taxes are part of the argument. I've worked around many mexicans and they(as a whole) work very hard. I'm against the illegal immigrants, but like I said, thanks to greedy companies there isn't much we can do until they stop or are made to stop hiring them. We have lazy people in every race, so don't take me speaking as all Americans are lazy, they know who they are.
I know people want to blame everything on the mexicans, but would you not do the same things they are if it meant a better life for your family? That's why you work 5 12 hour shifts every week right? If you have ever been to any part of Mexico that wasn't a tourist area, you would see why they want their families over here. It doesn't excuse the fact they don't do it legally, but I'm just saying I understand.

Where would America be if we hadn't came and "took" the land? All our ancestors and forefathers were immigrants. I'm a white man and I too hate the way some of the mexicans are doing. I understand peoples frustrations, I'm by no means for illegals coming in. If they want to enjoy all this country has to offer, do it right. It's what we are built on.

Go spend some time in another country and them come home and complain about the way we live here. We as a country may not go about things the right way every time, but we are a humanitarian nation, so until all the political correctness is pushed aside and get some control on the illegals coming over, get used to them taking the white man's jobs. I for one, will keep doing what I do no matter how many come, I'm just not going to hold my breath waiting for higher ups to do something about it.

To the poster above me, BRAVO! That is what I have always said, unless you have been in their shoes, you have NO idea what you would do to survive and feed your family. We are poor here, but you don't know poverty unless you have lived in some of the third world places they come from. Hispanics as a whole are NOT lazy people. They may be illegally, but again, they came here to better their families, just like we all do. If there was a system to get them legalized more easily, don't you think they would? Trust me, they don't like breaking the lasw anymore than you or I, but there's little choices for them. Try to be from Mexico and apply to come here, it's very hard, and would take years, and by then it would be pointless. I am not making excuses for them but we need immigration reform in this country, they are already here, and a mass deportation is NOT going to work, so why not offer some form of relief to the ones already here?
People are heartless and don't know how blessed we are. Again, if the jobs had already been filled by these "hard working" Americans, there would be no problem, right?

you are right, think, and my point was/is that if it came down to it, I can't really tell you to what limits I might go to feed my family. People do what is necessary sometimes, legal or otherwise.

Amnesty was offered and taken by many, back in the 80's under Regan. That policy did nothing to secure our borders and nothing to stem the tide.I disagree that they (illegals) are trying to create a better life here, I guess that's why they will have 8-10 in one apartment and send the majority of their earnings out of the country.The only thing that will stop the influx is when Congress grows some balls and passes laws that impose crippling fines on companies that hire illegals. I'm thinking $100K per head.It has to be more expensive to be caught employing illegals than the company can benefit from reduced wages.I also don't buy the BS that "they do the jobs that Americans won't do". Americans will do any job necessary, for a fair wage. My thoughts.

What about the landlords who allow these 8-10 in a house?? And either way, even if they do send $ home, they are also spending money here and helping the economy here.

Once again, if the jobs had already been filled by the hard working Americans you speak of, there would be no jobs for them, right?

A hispanic will do whatever job for whatever pay you give them. Trash, chicken plant, whatever...how many of your personal friends and/or family do you know that would do those jobs? And be honest! I wouldn't do them, and the majority of people I know wouldn't.
