No jobs for illegas! Back in my day kids did yard work and odd jobs for spending cash. Now that times are tough that should return. Second I dont care if you believe me or not but temp services favor Mexicans.

I see from the first comment that hatred is still alive and well in my native Indiana. If only native-born Americans were as gentle, compassionate, decent, and humane as the Latinos I have met over the decades. I am sure that immigrant laws need to be reformed, but when ICE raids separate parents and children, there is something crazy and inhuman going on. I know that any urging of brotherly love -- even if so-called Christian territory -- is like spitting into the wind.

So now it's called hatred when American citizen want the laws of our land enforced. If its hatred arrest, don't deport at 1st. Let every illegal alien criminal spend a min. of six months at Sheriff Joes Tent City. After their stay there then deport them. Our government also needs to show some compassion and ship the illegal's anchor brats with them keep the family together.

OK please explain the "hate" part! I would love to see your point of view, but I can't seem to get my head that far up my ass.

So are you living with, engaged to, employing illegals? Don't ever call yourself an American, as you DON'T fit the mold!

I Run a temp agency in Elkahrt IN. I have a very small hispanic work force due to the fact that we do not employ illegals. Due to high number of aliens in this county I have a hard time getting my fellow americans out to work. I see companies left and right hire illegals over true americans, and it is disgusting! Companies will run their little check and when socials do not pan out they let their workers come in under a whole different name, like they don't know but they see it as their buts are covered. Where is the heart of america we are fighting the battle of our lifes and americans need work and these companies dont care!! How do they sleep at night?

Did you know if you turn in an employer to the IRS you could be illegible for a cash reward?

It deeply saddens me to see the hatred and ignorance not only for us latinos, but for our community as a whole. It is sad to so grown up man and woman who idealize immigrants like us are taking their jobs, immigrants like us are sometimes smarter than they are, and we get the jobs because WE are hard workers..it saddens me the most that i'm a young individual who grow up in this area and I cannot believe what I'm reading. This country was ruled by immigrants coming from all over the world, and this is why this country is rich of multicultural values..let not loose those values yourself as a human being and as an individual...I cannot believe people can say something like that and I cannot believe people have the mentality of many centuries ago..isn't this the 21sth Century people?????Grow up and Grow a pair FORFAVOR...Thanks

Actually, Bank of America was issuing them visa cards for $500. And who picks up the tab in the end?
It is amazing what Ca has let happen there. I lived there 20 years ago for 4 months in San Diego and couldn't stand it then. Never need to return. You better speak Spanish. Even though it is not offered in most US Schools. American Govt. has put all Americans at a disadvantage. All for Votes?

May as well put the ATM's on the Border........

Considering the "Fact" I am a legal US citizen then ICE can not "Get Me" as you wish.

if americans had as many extra benefits as illegals had than maybe they'd be nicer... like wages without taxation, being illegal and still getting medical food and cash assistance.I lived and worked in elkhart thru temp agencies and made 2 dollars less on the hour than the illegals hired straight thru the companies!! 98 percent couldn't even speak a word of english. and as for being separated from their kids.... they knew the possibilities when they decided to come here illegally and have kids! i have no problem with immigration but i do have a problem with people sneaking like rats and hiding like cockroaches! And as for your statement about Christianity, he law and religion should have NO intermingling!!!

I worked for a boat company in Elkhart Indiana for 5 years, then they started hiring hispanics, illegal and not. eventually they laid off 20 americans, and replaced us with hispanics..If there had been a problem with my work you would have thought i'd have gotten somekind of repremand at some point never..eventually that company was brought up on federal charges for making fake social security cards..So 3 years later I go to work for another rv industry company I've been there 5 years two years ago they started hiring hispanic sewers. one year ago they hired a legal but hispanic boss. Now we are down about 20 sewers, I guess i must have made the cut. now there are 3 american sewers, and 7 illegal hispanic sewers. I have been working off and on drawing unemployment, becouse they can't. For the first time in my life I am feeling discrimination, and I don't like it..They just laid off a woman that had worked for the company since they opened approximatley 12 years ago, I figure i'm next.. I don't blame it all on the hispanics, there are a lot of greedy american company owners out there.. when i say american I use the term loosely. One thing that really bothers me is when our boss talks spanish, to the workers that can speak English. I have heard that is a form of harassment.. I could go on and on but I won't.
