Undocumented workers are so much better workers than young american kids today. They want to play video games all day. Many are fat and lazy.

Illegal aliens such as myself are not special nor are we better than anyone else, in fact, we are mediocure. We are just as fat and lazy, in fact, we like to take siesta's for 2 hours at lunch time. All our beaner food is way to fatning and greezy. I like the illegal alien crew of 12 hope we get picked up for deportation. We are simply tired of looking over our shoulders.

More proof the illegals are hurtin citizens. the dropouts could be working rather than being on government assistance, except for the fact that the illegals take those jobs.

The supporters of illegals should pay the welfare for the dropouts plus pay in full for their pet illegals!

Talk about bigots? Look at yourself in the mirror. Most days you don't know if you're coming or going RICO!

Yes. They dropped out of school, but it is all the fault of the Mexicans.

Still having comprehension problems, huh? Guess you didn't take my advice and get some schooling in comprehension.

When illegal aliens (I never said Mexicans) come here and take the jobs that *could* be held by citizens who drop out of high school. That is a fact.

Your throwing the word "Mexicans" in there is just ignorant, since that's not what I said. You just want to add that in because you know he majority of illegals are from Mexico and they are low/no educated, which are the exact illegals stealing those jobs.

Now stop trying to insist I wrote something I never wrote. That's the only way you can try to look credible -- by insisting I wrote something I never wrote.

Any illegal alien taking a job that could be held by a citizen drop out is most definitely the fault of the illegal alien, no matter what country he/she is from. It is no one else's fault. I certainly never said illegals force anyone to drop out of school. You just make yourself look stupid by posting such nonsense and trying to change what I actually wrote.

Carry on! It just makes the rest of us look better!

No. The fact is a high school drop-out has only themselves to blame.

Pretty much everyone realized Juan was a non-hispanic anti-American ringer. You just caught on to this? He's just a paid poster like Rico and some others are. Spewing anti-American propaganda is his job, just like Rico.
