I am with you on this Alex. The key word was ILLEGALS!. Somehow they feel they are above the law and can come into our country and corrupt our country with their gang influence. Alex, we have to remember here you are not talking to people with the same mentality. You can tell by the english they use.

ILLEGALS do the work u dont wanna do and because they do america is were its at today... now sure the economy is bad and whatnot but thats not the illegals fault its the idiots we put in charge that are running this place to the ground, all the stupid decisions they make thinking this country will prosper from it when in reality we dont!!!!!!!!!! they do, but not us and then they try to redirect or "cover up" by saying its the illegals. Ya right only an ignorant dumb fuck will believe that. stop being so close minded and take the time to think about wat u say before talking. cause in reality im an illegal and i came to this country at an early age i went to school i worked the fields i did yard work for people and then i went to college and am now a partner in a well respected law firm. sure i became a u.s. citizen but i never forget who i am and what i had to do to get to were im at but hey who am i to talk rite???????? after all you guys still live at home with your mom and are always borrowing gas money hu? good day ignorant dumbfucks

Alex Wrote: "I agree you are correct that illegal immigration isnít the sole cause of the gang problem since there were always gangs, but it most certainly is a factor in the recent up rise of gangs in the rural North West. Itís too easy for drug traffickers and other criminals to travel back and fourth across the Mexican/American border."

Alex first of all Northwest is written in one "solo" word (so you can correct next time), and about the drug problem, the problem is not Mexico (or thus the supplier) but the problem is the demand. We need to fix the problem of Middle America's wanting and needing the drugs (not by legalizing them) but by eradicating the demand is the only way we will fix the drug problem. Our problem is a social problem and it need to be addressed as such, for example; taking away our fundamental right to bear arms does not correct the problem, it only takes guns out of citizen's hands, the criminal element gets their guns by other means. Does that make sense?

I am a 2nd generation Mexican American. My grandparents came to this country legally in the late 1940's, and spent their whole lives working there way, starting from factory work to management. They raised 2 sons, law abiding American citizens. My father and uncle were members of the Army national guard, and raised their children up as respectful citizens of this great nation. I now have 2 sons of my own I have instilled vaules and morals into. It has taken A LOT of effort on my part to steer them in the right direction. I am disgusted by this generation of LAZY gangbangers, who think because they "tag" a building, suddenly it's "their" property. NO, its the person who busted their ass and legitimately obtained the real estate. Or that running around with a gun makes you a man? Sadly mistaken, you are a scared little b*tch that can't fight his own battles. To much time playing video games on mamas couch, watching cable trying to be "hard". You know whats hard? A man that gets up and goes to work everyday to put food on the table. You all are a disgrace to the Mexican race.

MGC. well said. As well there are kids and adults for that matter that are lazy and game it up all day, that live that lifestyle and are not gangbangers. Also, there are gangbangers that acually have ligit jobs.

Further said. Once the law is broken by anyone, banger or not; there is no gaming it up in prison. You will be woken up EVERY MORNING for breakfast. Your every move will be on a timer. Your body will be invaded, and you will feel shame,(this is for your protection that this is done). If you are a active G-member you will not only answer to the prison C.Os you will answer to your Higher-ups in your gang. So tell me...when all is said and done, this social organization with unlawful action that on purpose distroys itself, family and life is something to be proud of and celebrate?

This is a sick society we are living in, with individuals on every level dropping the ball every step of the way. We must all take responsibilty; leaders, parents, teachers,our system, THE MEDIA. what direction are we leading our youth in, where are we taking them? Where are we as parents alllowing our society to take our children. STEP UP TO THE PLATE PEOPLE. UR RIGHT ON MGC..PEOPLE NEED TO STOP BEING SO LAZY, SELFISH AND FULL OF EXCUSES!

Number 1. If you are are in a respected law firm, I cannot believe you use the language you did on the web site. I hope your law firm reads this because you would not have a job. Also you need to learn to use the correct grammer and pronumciation if you want to be well respected. You sound like an Illegal who pretends to be a great American Citizen. Show me your credentials you yahoo!!!!!

You are an idiot. Mexicans are south american indians. They have no historical claim to any land in the United States. Had thier ancestors crossed the border 500 years ago the ancestors of our native americans would have killed them!

This area is one of the lowest wage areas in the country.
Low wages breed crime.
Get rid of the system where the rich get richer and poor get poorer, and all crime will fade.

You have no clue.... sorry to be the one to break the news, but Washington State has the highest paid minimum wage in the nation! So it has nothing to do with the rich get richer and the poor poorer, its about community involvment and how badly we need it, and parents need to wake up and smell the grapes! Children are a reflection of their parents and as long as we let them do what they want and step all over we can say nothing...
A child disrespects his parents and they allow it, he or she goes on to do the same to a teacher, then school princple, police officer, judge, community etc. where did it all start?
We all need to wake up!

And stop having so many babies so you won't be crying when they take you to mexico and leave them here. Your Boo Hoo's are fake!!! go HOME!!!!!

Our current problem regarding illegals is definitely making our gang situations worse, but not the cause. Lack of parenting, family drug abuse, and the welfare system has caused our problem! Mandatory drug testing and mandatory birth control for all welfare recipients would save the taxpayers boo-coo bucks, not to mention less money in the gang/drug systems. First illegal immigration needs to stop and then the money supply needs to be cut. Parenting classes must be required for anyone entering into the welfare system, having their first two kids, so maybe kids in the future will not feel it necessary to rebel into gangland and ultimately a life of incarceration or death! Let us pray for these poor souls. We need to teach personal responsibility and individual freedom, not entitlement. Entitlement is obviously all these poor souls know--breaking that cycle is our only hope...

You poor soul. What happened to you, for you to be so naive and ignorant? I will pray for you son and pray for your family. May the Lord in Heaven lift your heart and open your eyes, as he did mine so many years ago. God Bless you poor dear.
