About dang time that they started doing something about the lack of jobs in Fitzgerald! But will it last? And will someone other then illegals be able to get a job? Just going to have to wait and see.

Ah, so right FedUp721. Bout time indeed! Now, comes the test. Will it benefit the illegals or the one's that have lived and worked here all our lives. I hope the latter.

I don't have a major problem with the Mexicans havin job here.....If they want to live in our country they should have to become a citizen. We can't afford to pay for insurance can't get any help from the state BUT let them come.... right away they are issured a card for FREE......HEALTH &
HOSPITAL CARE A CARD TO GET THEIR FREE We all go to the dr. having to pay for the office visit and have to ask the dr to give you a generic brand prescription. I wonder if we went to Mexico would they take care of us?? most likely not!!!

The mexican community is very nice people.i think we should all be respectful to one another.Everyone ,at some point in their lives has had some kind of assistance.NOT just Mexicans.We all need each other in some kind of way.nobody owns this country but God.Stop acting like it's your world.
