Yet they keep having children.Encouraged by our government ,who pays them more for each child,and offer citizenship to the newly born on our soil, and the churches who show such joy for each child born into poverty and so many times abuse. God bless the little ones as they really cannot help the stupidity of the adults in this world.

Upper Darby, PA (SafeCITY)- Denise Merget, 58 and her neighbor Margaret Doughterty, 41, were arrested last week after they allegedly began two unique home businesses across the street from another that didn't quite jive with authorities.

According to Upper Darby Police, investigators searched Merget's home on Wednesday, finding 20 frozen dead cats that had been stored in a freezer.

Investigators say the majority of the cats were just babies that were wrapped in plastic bags and stored for an unknown purpose. Police were alerted when Merget pulled a gun on an ASPCA agent who arrived at her home to confiscate her 55 cats.

Meanwhile her neighbor from across the street, Margaret Dougherty, operated a sex brothel out of her suburban home.

Investigators were alerted to Dougherty's business after a neighbors discovered a flier in the neighborhood that offered "massages by beautiful women." Dougherty allegedly operated the brothel when her son was in school.

An employee working out of the home as a prostitute, Amy Prudish, was also arrested.

Merget was booked into jail on charges of aggravated assault with a firearm. She may also be charged with animal cruelty after autopsies on the kittens have been concluded.

Dougherty and her employee were arrested on prostitution charges.

Kim, ABSOLUTELY!! So much for the argument that "They're just looking for a better life" B.S. Violating the law is "better" than obeying it? Being at constant risk of arrest and deportation is "better" than living without those concerns? Exposing their children to ALL of the risks associated with being illegal is "better?" "BETTER" than WHAT? The "better life" argument has always been a rhetorical position that is designed to provoke sympathy. It is, of course, total B.S.

Farndon Close, Northampton (SafeCITY)- Peter Trigger, a 60-year-old man banned from wearing skirts at certain times of the day, broke his A.S.B.O.(Anti-Social Behavior Order) by wearing his skirt and then deliberately bending over in front of his neighbors.

Trigger is now appearing before Magistrates' Court, accused of violating an A.S.B.O. that was set in place when he insisted on repeatedly annoying his neighbors by bending over in front of them while wearing a school girl skirt.

Trigger was banned from wearing the skirt or showing bare legs on a school day between 8.30am and 10am and 2.45pm and 4pm.

He was given an anti-social behavior order in December 2008 which also forbids him from behaving in a manner which causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to others.

Authorities say Trigger ignored his ASBO and upset his neighbors again by deliberately bending over in front of them early in the morning hours recently.

He walked towards his neighbors van wearing a school girl skirt and bent over, appearing to be doing something with his laces. He repeatedly bent over and continued until the neighbors drove off.

Trigger previously faced three charges of breaching the order but two have since been discontinued.

The order runs until December 2013.

Sadly, I think the mill ended up being sold in 2007 after filing bankruptcy. Sounds like being a good employer cannot compete with those willing to sell out. I moved in 1997 and have not kept up on it as much.

You think these people come here with an agenda which amazes me and I don't mean just you personally. But they have this idea of coming here and getting free educations, food stamps, welfare, yada, yada, yada when most of them that I know come here because they are not well educated and they don't have jobs where they were living in their countries and there only motivation is to put food on their plates and a roof over their head for them and their families. If you don't think they should be getting food stamps and they are then that's a state issue go get the law changed so they are no longer eligible. I feel sorry for them. The very fact that they are literally putting their lives at risk to give their families a life where they don't have to worry about poice corruption and getting shaken down for the few pesos they might have on them by their own police. I'll tell you one more thing about these hard working people. The ones I have encountered do a better job than most Americans doing the same job. American's laborers are generally are very lazy and don't do good jobs but often seek every shortcut to get it done fast instead of right and get paid twice or three times as much.
Absurdity certainly is a fitting name for you. YOU ARE ABSURD. You honestly don't think these people have an agenda? Have you been naive all of your life or is this a recent devlopment. You claim they only come here to provide a better life for their families. Well if they are already struggling to provide for their families why do they continue to have more children, increasing their financial burden? They readily admit they do have jobs back home but the pay here is better. The solution to minimum wage jobs in mexico is not comprehensive immigration reform in America. If they suffer under a corrupt goverment let them risk their lives TAKING THEIR COUNTRY BACK and not fleeing like cowards. Funny how when they get here they have no problem making demands from our goverment...let them make demands of their own goverment.Based on your statements about their work ethic I bet you hire ILLEGALS regularly.

They come here because they don't have money to put food on the table for their families, but yet they can pay a coyote as much as $20,000? That's a lot of money in their countries. They could start some business. The reason they are here is because there is no welfare, food stamps, section 8 and wic in their countries. They cannot milk off those systems. No one gets compensated for having dozens of kids in those countries.

It is capitalism that has allowed me to become a small business owner. It is capitalism that allows me to charge the fees I am as opposed to being told what I must charge. It is capitalism that has allowed my husband to go into the field he is in as opposed to being told what he should do. It is capitalism that has allowed him to have his own small business on top of his regular job.
It is capitalism that makes it so his facility has to charge competitive wages so they can get the best techinicians they can.(High complexity laboratory). It is capitalism that is the reason after coming to his lab and getting loads of training and skills that many of his staff have moved on to jobs where they are now in supervisory positions (husband's job is in an academically related medical facility so the pay can be a bit below average but it is a great place to stay a few years and get training so you can move up).
Now friend of mine emigrated to a country that is socialist but is also cracking down like all get out against illegals because they can no longer afford them and they are driving local businesses down. The government just decided not to allow big box stores where she is. They do not want the competition for the smaller stores. The prices would be too low and that would force smaller businesses to adapt or close. People want big box stores because there is no real competition, they are paying several times what we are for food. A liter of milk (half gallon) costs her $5 USD where it costs less than that here for a gallon. A small chicken costs her about $15 USD where I can get for for about $6 -$8. Bread is close to $5.00 a loaf where I can get a loaf of white for $1.50 or whole grain for about $2.00. This is what a lack of competition does. A lack of capitalism means that people are at the mercy of the local stores that have no competition.
Now, illegal competition is very bad for a society because they abnormally drop prices and wages. Again, why should someone hire me for $20 an hour (fair wage for X job 15 years ago) when they can now hire four men illegally for $9 each and not have to pay benefits and even pay them under the table so there are no taxes? This drives competitive wages down but for the wrong reasons. And you are not always getting the best people possible for the job. I have friends who have lost a lot of work because their fields are saturated with illegals. They cannot remain competitive. And these are the businesses that also hire a lot of local teens for holiday work and summer jobs during busy times. So if they are not getting contracts because they are being undercut grossly, this means that a lot of the local kids who for years have worked at these places, will not have as many job openings.
Capitalism is not that evil. It is small businesses owners like myself, my husband, another PhD I know that opened a new high complexity lab in a now lower income region in an area also hard hit by illegals (my husband has to go down to interview potential new hires next week), that allow for jobs to be opened. The owner of the lab is a legal immigrant who became a US citizen.
I grew up in and around old mill and fishing towns. Most of us were working class/blue collar. Just before I moved, a HUGE employer, Malden Mills in Methuen, MA, lost a major building in a fire just at the holidays. The owner of the mills, long time family company, announced that he would not move the mill to Mexico as many businesses were doing. He would rebuild there. The city could not afford to lose the jobs. He held true to his promise. Capitalism would also have allowed him to move the company. It is not capitalism that is evil but how it is managed by the individual. Competition can be a great thing but the wrong competition can drive down fair wages, etc.
It is capitalism that allows them to under price the rest of society and capitalism that encourages businesses to hire them.

You people will reap what you sow! it's a global economy and wages are going to equalize whether you like it or not because that is what capitalism is all about. It will go where the labor costs are the lowest and when you're all trying to go to Mexico to get jobs you will finally get it.
