Wow, how do you really feel?

Isn't it nice to have a place to rant and rave?

You raise some VERY valid points...

You go girl. Me & my hubby are right there with you.

I am with you sister. My Grandfather and his cousin came over from the Philipines through legal channels as well. I think the government is holding the corporate interest over the interest of the American people. I think they should be actively enforcing the laws that are in place, encouraging immegration through LEGAL channels and penalizing the COMPANIES who hire immegrants below minimum wage, not clogging up the prisons with what will be felony immegrants.

I think you hit the nail on the head...the problem is also with the people who are hiring the illegals at VERY low wages. These people aren't protected. The employers have to be held accountable also. They are breaking the law also.

You got it exactly right Cat,Stacey and Mary! Plus I hear that many of the Mexicans and Central and South Americans that work with us are going to "strike" on May 1st!!! Most of them were here the other day when thier friends and relatives were out "marching". I don't know what they get paid, but they don't have any taxes on thier paychecks either from what I hear from fellow workers who have looked at the Mexican paychecks. Plus they get more vacation time than we do. They can have a month off while we have to work a minimum of 7 years to get 2 weeks of vacation time. A very privileged bunch and no many of them don't want to speak any more English than they have to.
