Americans can't find jobs and then we look around and everywhere we see immigrants working. This must stop

Tennessee is no longer one of those states planning on an anti-illegal law like Arizona has.

I guess all the manufacturing plants, like Koch Food, U.S. Fence, and Mountain Valley Recycling, told the state the illegals are needed because they can't find non-illegals to work.

I'm sure it's hard to find people to work in communities where DRUGS are rampent. The prescription drug problem here is outrageous. Other drugs are bad, as well...not to mention there seems to be many people who just flat out don't want to work.
LoL Not

For every one druggie. There is 25 people looking for a living wage job. The companys here have no use for a citizen they can't cheat on taxes with. If they hire illegals, a willfully disregard the laws. Maybe the law should turn a blind eye and let the citizens handle the problem.

You know there's nothing wrong with mexicans, there are some who are here to sell drugs. There are also alot of white and black who sell drugs. Don't condem a whole race on a few. But if they're here ilegal they deserve to be sent back. There are laws and ways to become legal. After all unless your a native american we all came from somewhere else

Well "anyone" we came here legally and it is a slap in the face to look the other way with all the illegals running the streets, recieving welfare and disobeying the laws of the US. They laugh at us because they have invaded here and with no resistance!!

I believe that immigration laws should be enforced. The financial damage caused by illegals is destroying our country.

They're illegal. They have 'more' rights than Americans. They all work two jobs under the one stolen identity, sell drugs on the side, and get welfare and food-stamps with a different stolen identity. When they go to the hospital, they are treated for free, and when they are arrested, they are released immediately. I've seen it happen too many times.
Ever wonder why they're always smiling? They all know they are taking this country away from us, and are encountering, rather than resistance or fighting, a friggin' red carpet.
Our president has a very soft heart for illegals, being one himself. You can forget about getting any government agency to do a damn thing about anything.
I think it's time to start making life...'unpleasant' for our illegal friends, don't you?

It's not the ilegals that are causing this problem but our goverment that allows ilegals to come in this country and take advantages of all the public assistance their is. Come on people if we all knew that a country out there was giving free medical, dental, housing and help you pay your bills. wouldn't we be border hopping too!.
It's time that we demand of our goverment to enforce our laws and fine any company big or small for hiring them. Fine heavely and inprison any employer that hires any ilegal themselfs or through a temporary service.
Any goverment official that is not with the program must be impeached. That my friends would resolve this issue.
P.S Don't just do it to the Mexicans but to all races out there who are ilegal here in the USA.

You have a good theory there, and it would be nice if it could actually work. Unfortunately, it won't happen. You see, all these illegal immigrants are democratic voters. They sneak in here, drop a couple dozen anchors, and they're all going to be democratic voters, too. The democrats in power really need that. Oh, I know the national elections have been rigged since Kennedy was voted off the island, but they need the democratic votes at the local levels, because local elections are harder to rig.

Believe me, I know that playing with the government is a losing game. They own the courts and the judges, and most everything else. And they want those democrat votes.

I hate to endorse vigilantism, but I really think that's all that's left.

The ILLEGALS are a drain on our community. All they do is send the money they make here back to Mexico to improve the quality of life there and use up FREE resources here.
