I used to work at Electrolux for several years, there are more problems there than illegal immagrants. I have been working with someone one day and then they are gone. Rumors are they were walked out for not having proper paper work. A month later, they are back, not Maria, but Rosa.

It is a mis statement to say Electrolux is a magnet for illegals. Why do we not just call a spade a spade a tell the truth. The UNITED STATES is a magnet for illegal aliens. The federal, state and local governments are responsible for the illegal aliens. Our government officials need to get off their lazy asses and do something. The local law enforcement need to work with NCIS and deport the illegals, which doesn't happen. How embarrassing anyone, including News Channel 5 will single out a company instead of lawmakers. Only in America can you bitch, moan, whine, complain and blame but never take action to make change. Deport the son of a b.....es then they can't work illegally. Until the government takes action, don't blame the companies. It's BS.

except in this case they were right.
Since this report I C E Police and homeland security have been sweeping Springfield.Many illegals have been leaving ( Just picking up and leaving) as more and more are picked up/or perhaps are afraid of the I C E stings.
I saw them take some people on our street, thursday evening.
They were swift and professional Then their convoy moved on to another location and made inquiries there.

i feel that all the illegal immigrants should be deported. they destroy any neighborhood in which they live, destroy the yards by parking in the grass, live twelve to 15 in a house that was built for one family dwelling, and they drive illegally without valid drivers licenses and no car insurance. they are hard workers, but they try to do whatever they want to do. my neighborhood is overrun with them and it has destroyed what used to be a nice neighborhood into a rundown area

I would like to say something on this Illegal problem you people feel we have, which I do agree there are some that don't need to be here. On Sunday morning I watch the whole town of Springfield go to CHURCH with there christian heart and turn around on Monday morning treat people like dirt. The one thing I can say for the mexican people are they work and they hard workers,they do not bounce checks or use credit cards they pay with cash. They take care of there family ALL OF THEIR FAMILY unlike americans who we just stick or aging parents in Nursing Homes.The sad thing is most of these people are trying to better there families.Have any of you people ever been to Mexico to see the condition they come from. You are okay with bring the people here that have bomb our country and helping them get a New life. EXPLAIN THAT.Please rememeber you are the same people that go to church and claim to have a christian heart. Oh by the way I am a AMERICAN with a heart!

I think that people are very ignorant concerning immigrants. Not every immigrant is Mexican or illegal. When someone here talks about a hispanic they say "Mexican". There are legal immigrants here too, some from Mexico, Colombia or Puerto Rico (for those who doesn't know, people from puerto Rico are citizens, PR is a territory of USA). It is time for people to be fair and not generalize. I do not understand why all this hate against another race if we are all the same. God doesn't see color or race. They are here working just like you or me. Have you ever think why some of them are here? They suffer a lot in their countries, some of them have lost their families because of the violence in their countries. We are very fortunate because we have so much here, why not share it? I am sure that if you see someone that doesn't have anything to eat, you will feed them. Why not do the same thing for them, they need to work, they need to feed their families too.

Roughly translated:

"either or I have been reading its commentaries and I include/understand them that they esten furious but we do not do anything but that to work hard. because the policia not actua against the venderores of drugs and criminals."

Still is somewhat incoherent!!!

Again yet another translation, makes a bit more sense... I think the last bit intends to state " God doesn't only bless north americans" but until emmanuel decides to learn the language of the country he has chosen to live/work in he should get some translation... being "out of country" is one thing... BEING RUDE is something alltogether different... the audience here??? well i expect mostly english speaking... If intended for other spanish speaking folks... WELL PUT IT UP IN BOTH LANGUAGES...

Translation: "well well I have been reading his comments and I them understand that they are furious but we do not do anything any more that to work I last. because the police do not act against the venderores of drugs and criminals.
They are stealing FREEDOM from us and our human rights are pizoteando, but well.
GOD THE NORTH AMERICAN VENDIGA."
