I think if the illegal's get put out of this county the only way that is possible is if the citizen's do it because no part of the government or the law is going to do it. I am sory about your wife sir

She was a family friend that spent much of her time helping others! She died with her granddaughter watching.
Stats claim that 6 Americans are killed everyday by illegals.
Our government is NOT obeying it's own immigration laws and are responsible for every single murder of a citizen by an illegal alien.
If you really want to help please go to numbersusa.

Illegals come mostly from Mexico. Some from other countries south of our borders. I read somewhere
that 6 Americans are murdered by illegals every day in this country. How true it is I don't know, but I
googled the internet and it's beyond belief how many citizens are killed thru murder and drunk driving car accidents. Plenty of rape also. Americans need to stand up and demand of our government to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws.

"okeechobee would never survive "
Don't delude yourself. If you think a whole town would go under, you put yourself on way to high of a pedestal. We all know that illegals work hard, but the fact is you are still ILLEGAL. For the record, yes, we could deport you all and survive. the problem is, you take jobs for such a low pay that Americans who belong here cannot find work. Proponents say "Americans don;t want those jobs." Of course we don;t when they are paying you pennies. What we want is for you to go home, then businesses would be forced to pay a fair wage and maybe Americans would take those jobs. I for one would pay an extra $1 for my O.J. if it meant some out of work American would get a job.
If your so great, go back to your own country and take up a cause. You have such pride in your country and heritage, yet you run for it. Instead of running, help to make the country you come from better.

My parents sucessfuly run a ranch and dairy without any illegal immergrants. They do it bc they have honest hard working employees they pay well. So to think Chobee or any other place wouldnt survive with out illegals is ignorance. If our residence stood up to companys that hire illegals we might have a better town. If you want to work and live in America do it the legal way. Stop thinking you are more important than the people that are born and raised in America. I think if you are cought driving a car, and you are an illegal immergrant should be sent back at your expenece.

I was hit by A drunk driver which was spanish when I was six years old in Lake Okeechobee he never spent A day in jail he was given A suponea to appear in court he skipped town I was still in the hospital he had no clue if I lived or died so we really need to make stiffer laws on these drunk drivers.

I really doubt that if it were not for mexicans we would not have milk, fruit and vegetables, you are living in fantasy land.
also, for someone who put "born and raised here" you sure dont refer to yourself as being an american. Americans also do not need papers to work here as we are citizens. And if you can honestly tell me that your non-english talking, non driving ass mom has not been out driving around, not giving signals, and making right turns from the far left hand lane, I would have to say you are lying. Everytime I go to Chobee I almost get killed by one of these.
I have ALOT of spanish(mexican) friends, but I have to say that if you guys are so great, since according to you, you keep america going, we wouldn't have anything to eat without you, then why dont you go back to your own country, and make that happen there. See, Mexico obviously sucks, because you keep leaving and coming here. So since you keep us fed and our country so great, why is your country so bad off?????

I don't understand our country either. I worked a juvenile facility and one of the youths stated that he dad had been killed in a car accident while in the US. He mother won a large law suit and was illegal. She built a new home and still lives in the US...only in the USA....we the people need to speak up on this issue. There is no country that gives illlegal a job, place to live, and money in their pocket. Then they want to complain...they need to go back to where they come from and leave more to the US citizen. This needs to stop. I am truly sorry for the family's loss. I hope something will be done.
