I can not imagine living in a country illegally. Everyday looking over your shoulder, driving, working or just being in the country. Illegal aliens are just a day from being back in the country of their birth. What gets me is, they still commit crimes that will draw attention to them and get them booted out, how stupid is that?

They have it better now than ever before because we have a weak government but like a clock's pendulum that swing from side to side it will swing back in line with law and order. I think the coming money/wall street/ bank and economy collapse will hasten law enforcement, when the money gets very tight.

States that grant driver licenses, illegal alien workers, in state tuition and any other giveaways to non US citizens will find funds to run their states in short supply.

Which means you were born in Mexico and are a naturalized American, glad you cleared that up for us.
I've only said this a gazillion times.

I know people, many people, born here who still identify as Mexican.

One more thing. I'm not a naturalized American citizen. I've always been an American!

I've gone over this many times in the other threads. What part of this countries name is "The United States" do you not understand?

America is this entire western hemisphere, both north and south.

I saw part of that video.

On the one hand, he's speaking to a an English speaking Senator. So, yes! He should've spoken in English to him. I don't believe the senator meant any disrespect when he asked, "Why aren't you speaking in English to us." The Senator really didn't understand Spanish.

On the other hand, he had no obligation to speak in any other language other than Spanish if Spanish is his native tongue. WHICH IT IS!!!

A person should always speak in the language of the person he's speaking to!

I'm not Jose, but one really good fruit picking story is when the Pilgrims were just about ready to die and the Indians (natives) showed them how to grow corn and taught the about the wild turkey.

Ask them how they feel about the illegals. I too know some of these people and they hate the air the illegals breath.

Many can speak English and refuse to. They choose to aggravate and it is working very well. I see the people in stores etc. react to a couple of greazers speaking Mezcan and they are not looked upon well. They breed hate and contempt. Especially when they pay their grocery tab with welfare.

In contrast to that, a couple of years ago, a neighbor was replacing his roof, and the company he hired subcontracted to another company, which hired foreign labor (happened to be latinos, whether they were illegals or not isn't the point for my example). These 'workers' would sit on the roof and heckle women walking by and glare and young girls riding their bikes, I noted this and talked to my neighbor about it, he contacted the roofing company he hired, who replaced the subcontractors with another group of, you guessed it, sub-standard workers. Some contractors don't deserve to be in business, glad it worked out for you!
When the business owner came by with shingle samples, he assured us that the workers would not bother us; the only worker who would talk to us was the foreman. the kicker was that these guys would not take their shirts off. That tickled me, but frankly, I appreciated the level of respect this business owner gave us and expected his workers to show us as well. The job was finished yesterday, and as I suggested, they did a bang-up job. The ground was soft because we had a heavy rain the day prior to their coming out, therefore they will have to repair a few huge ditches they made while hauling their materials to the back. Other than that, the house looks fantastic. We were extremely lucky to have found this company! One more thing, when they took a few breaks, they did it in shifts, meaning there was work going on the entire time they were at our house. That was very refreshing!

Hey Rico, I always find it astonishing that folks like you call out Americans as being lazy. Meanwhile your people keep coming over here, jumping the fence, hoping that ICE cuts them a break. If Americans are lazy, who built up this country? illiterate Mexican peasants? You're a tired old fool.
What's astonishing is the fact that every time you get your azz whopped with facts your knee jerk reaction is to ASSume it's been Rico.
Your people?
What does that mean?
You're the one whose Mexican family is still trickling steadily into MY Country.
Why don't you tell 'em cowards to stay there and fix their own Country the way you religiously advice Anonymous posters on these threads?
According to you they are financially well off and influential in their native Mexican land.
Have them pull a few strings, click their heels close their eyes and say PRESTO!
That easy!
You twisted Hypocrite.....
