OH REALLY? I wonder WHY? The good old boy system uses them as slaves in their local sweat shops working illegally and "under the table" for 2-3 bucks an hour. Churches are bringing them in in droves trying to get them permits to STAY here. In return, as soon as they get jobs, what church do you think they'll go to? Yep, there's another 10% CHA$$$$$$$$$$CHING!

Went to open house at my child's school last night and this school told that they are 85% free lunch at this school. I was furious because my child has to pay for everything and we sure don't live high on the hog. It's disgusting what has happened to Morristown. We aren't Mexican.

It isn't necessarily the Mexicans I'm mad at. It's the system. If you lived in a shithole country like Mexico, and another government was saying to you,"Come on in, you can have free health care, we'll give you money for food, rent, and you can live tax free...you can have everything...for nothing", it makes a tempting option. What pisses me off is when I go to the grocery store and in front of me is a Mexican woman with a food stamp card. She just "purchased" $300 worth of groceries, then her friend that is with her asks "How much is left on the card?" To which she says "$1600.00". EXCUSE ME! WHAT!? And before I get trolled, I can speak Spanish.

I have the fortune to not be dependent on food stamps. I understand that some people need assistance, but $1600 worth of assistance? I have a family of 11 people living with me, and I don't even spend $1600 a month, and I buy all of the groceries...for everyone.

But what really puts the icing on the cake, is after she "paid" for her groceries, she needed to buy something that food stamps wouldn't cover. Fine, not a big deal, until she reaches into her purse and pulls out a wad of money as big as my fist. And they weren't singles.

We as a nation are being discriminated against in our own country. When you give everything away for free and make no attempt to "ween" the recipients off of assistance, they have no motivation to ever do better for themselves or their families. They will stay on it forever and bleed the system dry. The system keeps giving, and they keep taking. I'm afraid that this will never change. It saddens me to see this once great nation that I enlisted in the military for, go down the toilet.

There should be a law stating that you have to be an American citizen before you can receive benefits of any kind.

I know that our country was founded on give us your tired your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free...but those huddled masses of poor and destitute have become the American citizens. We are now the tired and the poor. Where in the hell is our help? When do we get assistance? Oh wait....I forgot. We're too busy giving it to someone else.....

Make it easier to be legal so they can pay taxes and stop getting free health care.

No way any "illegal" can get one red cent of gov assistance, period. Think about it people, "illegal"! You must have documentation before you can even get your foot in the door.

Now, as for the "legals" marrying their lovers, different ball game! Specifically, I know one woman, much older than her fiancÚ, now husband, another kid, making six, and guess who left her holding the bag? Stupid.......personified!

Do you realize how easy it is to have fake documentation? I know a guy that used to help Mexicans get fake Social Security cards. He used to be the translator that worked at Hamblen hospital. He may still be there, I don't know. I have another friend that is from Mexico (legally), and he knows a Mexican family, that is here illegally, that has applied for food stamps in several different counties...and got them. That goes in line with what I have seen at a local grocery store. I watched a Mexican woman try to pay for her groceries with an EBT card. It was declined. She reached into her purse and pulled out three more, THREE, and handed another one to the cashier, and said, "See if this one has enough on it." If that one was declined as well, at least she had two more to try, right?

The welfare system and their social workers are very, VERY, sympathetic toward Mexicans. I remember back years ago when my wife and I got married. I was working for a national furniture business. They up and sold off everything and moved all of their production facilities over-seas. I was faced with finding a new job so I could support my wife and our new baby. She couldn't work at the time because of complications during pregnancy. I had to take a job where I was making $6.00 an hour. We went to our local Central Services office to try to get some assistance to help with putting some food on the table. We were denied. We were told that I made too much money. It just goes to show, that if you are a legal resident, and have a legitimate need for assistance, you will be passed over so that an illegal can be taken of. I understand that there are citizens that are on assistance too, but the number of illegals that are on assistance outnumber them all.

Another example. Just recently I was in line at Wal-Mart behind an illegal that was getting a WIC order. The person receiving the WIC has to sign the vouchers once at the WIC office, and sign them again when they redeem them. Well, the problem this time was that the signatures and even the names didn't match. She signed a different name at the register, and the handwriting wasn't even remotely similar. I saw it for myself. The cashier called for a manager. The manager came and explained to the person redeeming the WIC that the next time the signatures needed to match....and let her use the WIC anyway! I was dumbfounded. It's things like this that beg the question, "Why don't we just hand over our country on a silver platter?" They are getting a pass on everything. EVERYTHING! Just look at the crime beat in the paper, or that mugshot website that we get told about on here every week. Give it a two or three week cycle, and you'll see the same people in there again and again...sometimes with different names.

Illegal immigrants and widespread drug abuse are the two things that are killing this town. The local government is ignoring both in hopes that it will just "go away." Well, it isn't. In fact it's getting worse. If we can get rid of one, then we could focus on getting rid of the other. But the local government and law enfarcement (yes, that spelling was intentional) don't seem to care about any of it. I remember Morristown back when it was a great place to live. It has since become a festering cesspool of filth, drugs, and corruption. I am glad I don't live in Morristown anymore. I know there are other cities that are worse than here, but they also have ten times the population.

No, I did not know this! I am surprised but I do believe you. I have had very little experience with the Hispanic population, some good, some not so good. That is expected in all businesses. My particular business allows me to make the decision, thank goodness. I had no clue it was this bad in Motown!

You have no idea what you are talking about. That is simply not true, as they get housing, food stamps, and other assistance with no green or documentation.
