That's utter nonsense. Our American youth are more than willing to take those entry level jobs.
OOOKKKAAAAAYYYY.
So you pull up to McDonalds would you rather see a saggy pant wearing, slang talking, dirty looking white or black kid, or an adult professional looking illegal? I am pretty picky about my food and I'm much more at ease with the latter.

Now your grasping at straws. McDonald's and other fast food establishments have dress codes. Why do you hate American youth so much that you have to spread lies about them? What they wear outside of their job is their own business and I have seen plenty of Hispanics whether they be legal or illegal dress in that type of clothing outside of their jobs. I'd rather be waited on by someone who speaks English and has a right to work in this country. Sorry that you are so anti-American that you feel otherwise. We have immigration laws whether you like it not!

I also volunteer, every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at a boy's home in Texas. If you read my post carefully, you would have picked up that I have no issue with our youth other than the low standards that we set for them. They will only achieve what we set for them, rarely more. The problem is our childlike adults that can quote line for line the latest celebrity gossip, but can't function in a work setting. I also work with 90 or so Hispanics(70 or so being illegal), and I can tell you that if any citizens would come and work my boss would and has hired them. They can't take jobs from citizens that are willing to work. It's the sue happy, late to work, excuse making, drug test failing, lazy Americans who have provided so much opportunity for our Hispanic brothers and sisters.
Hilarious! You're getting desperate now. What part of these greedy employers only hire illegal aliens to increase their profits not because Americans are too lazy to work aren't you getting??? Hispanics do not hold the corner of the market on good work ethics and those here illegally are breaking the law but I guess that matters not to you? My Hispanic brothers and sisters are those who are here legally not border jumpers who are here illegally. Grow up will you?

Exactly. Anyone who claims to be picky about their food can't be that picky if they are choosing to eat 'fast food'.

I personally don't like McDonalds, or any other fast food other than the occasional subway sandwich. I only used their reference to McDonalds, and fyi I am 6'4" slender white American male. Just because I am a conservative that believes republicans are wrong on the immigration issue doesn't make me not American. You go to Mexico, I'll stay right here thank you very much.

Quit being silly, I have many issues with the illegal community. Spending so much energy on screaming deport them, is a waste of time and energy, IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. OH you're right I'm spreading lies about our beloved youth, they're not how I portrayed them at all> Yeah Right! As you sit at your computer spewing unwarranted hate, our youth are losing precious oppurtunities to be guided into adulthood. Hate breeds Hate. And saying what they wear outside of their jobs is their own business just proves my point. Our kids business is our business, kids act out(a cry for help is some cases) and we turn a blind eye because it's their business. SILLY, SILLY human, you accuse me of the very thing you're guilty of.

What hate am I supposedly spewing? Because I want our immigration laws respected and enforced that equates to hate? Is this some kind of joke? The best way to rid ourselves of illegal aliens is to remove all the incentives for them to remain here such as the job and benefits magnets. I have never said mass deportations was the solution.

You're the one being silly constantly ranting about what our American youth wear. Since when is choice of clothing mean they are lazy idiots? I am willing to bet that illegal aliens wear the same type of clothing because I have seen Hispanics/Mexicans dressed in the same way and they can't all be legally here.

I am guilty of WHAT? You're and anti-American idiot because you don't give a damn about the negative impact that illegal aliens have on our own citizens nor do you give a damn about our immigration laws. People like you make me sick and are what is wrong with this country!

You're guilty of hating our youth, anyone who is uninvolved and says that what they wear has nothing to do with the image they are trying to portray is clueless. OHH, you've seen Hispanic/Mexicans wearing the same thing and they couldn't all have been legal? That is a very racist statement friend. Now, if you want to speak to how illegals are failing to raise their children then I could possibly agree with you. I live in Texas, and can tell you first hand that illegals ARE NOT taking any jobs from Americans. To keep spewing that republican rhetoric is just ignorant. Open your door, go outside, and walk around the world we've created, you'll then see that a group of people coming to our great country to work and provide for their family is the least of our worries. Few people follow every law on the books in their prospective states, to let a hatred guide you into having an issue with a specific law being broken is just irresponsible. I don't see your name on the Legalize Marijuana, Imprison Sex Offender, Life Sentence for all Murderers forums. NO, You are here, now ask yourself why.

This will be my last reply to your ignorant tripe! I hate our youth because I am saying what they wear doesn't necessarily equate to them being bad people? WTH?

How is it racist to state that not all Hispanics/Mexicans are here legally? It is just a fact! How are facts racist?

You're totally clueless, aren't you? Illegals are working construction jobs, landscaping jobs and all sorts of blue-collared jobs that Americans have always done. WTH is wrong with you?

Republican? Where did I say I was a Republican and what does being a Republican have to do with stating FACTS?

ALL of our laws should be abided by. Where did I say otherwise? Citizens are obligated to follow our laws just as foreigners are and should be punished for not doing so.

There is a lawful way to come to this country to have a better life. We have immigration laws in place to protect our own citizens. No one has the right to come here illegally. What part of that aren't you getting? Now, go straight to hell and I will never read or reply to your stupid posts again!!!! There is something very screwed up in your head!

If all I could do is requote Rush and Hannity I don't think I would post on here either. They are here because the government allowed them to come, there are many laws on the books that aren't enforced, deal with it. Your posts let me know that you are republican, you don't have to admit it, I'd be ashamed too. Though I lean towards conservatism your group has greatly missed the mark on immigration. So hate all you want, if you live where your user name implies then you must be in hell having to see the people you hate everyday. HAHAHHA! There are still plenty of American construction and landscape workers just open a phone book so you don't mistakenly hire a Jose or Juan. Check under your bed,lock your doors and leave a light on at night, or the big scary landscaper might get you. BOOOO!
