Yes, they're armed!
In Los Angeles, Ca they had a gun buy back program and somebody actually turned in an RPG.
2 rocket launchers turned in during Los Angeles gun buyback
LOS ANGELES (KCAL/CNN)- A one-day gun buyback event in Los Angeles ended up bringing more than 2,000 firearms off the street.
The annual event is typically held Mother's Day, but was moved up to this week in response to the massacre at the elementary school in Connecticut.
A rocket launcher. Not just one, but two, handed over to police in this week's gun buyback day.
Shocking? Not to police, who've seen it before, among the roughly 10,000 guns turned in to police by the citizens of Los Angeles since 2009.

What happen in georgia .when illegal immigrant afraid to go out for work in farm..all the vegetable got rotten cause nobody want to pick up vegetable etc..come on face it lots americans doesnt wanna do this job cause its hard..believe it ot not illegal immigrants contribution a lots to this country...and i.m welcome people who is hardworking and good people no matter the status is..
Americans ARE hardworking people...Face it, college graduates won't want to pick tomatoes, and those who do are not college graduates. These illegals might have gotten as far as the fifth grade if they managed to get that far. Illegals take those jobs because they have no skills. But picking vegetables isn't the only area where they work, heck, only a very small percentage of them would even consider working in the fields. They are more prone to work in the variouus arms of construction or in service jobs.

Maybe Mexico can take California back as their OWN state.
They'll have a bunch of their citizens back AND will take over California's MASSIVE DEBT, too !!
<LOL>
If Mexico were to annex the state of California, it wouldn't solve Mexico's problems or California's problems. It's cultural, political, and economic systems that create wealth, not geography. What Mexico is interested in doing is moving millions of it's citizens under someone elses roof. If they were to raise a Mexican flag over the California state capitol building, then they become responsible for it, which is not what they want.

You made this country your own after you grab it from native americans?
True "Native Americans" are small in number and arn't even part of the immigration debate.

Google the definition of the word "Hispanic". Their grandfathers came to the Americas in a boat from Europe just like Anglos, Blacks, and Asians.

You are right. Mexico does not want the illegals back. They can't afford them. That's why they fight to keep them here. I remember when GWB was president and there was talk of deportation...mexico almost stroked out..lol
