Wow! Ive read about 80% of this thread and its the same mubo jumbo over and over. Arizona is not the only state with immigration issues I live in
Florida and believe me there are just as many illegal aliens here as it is over there. They pick the strawberries here, the oranges, They hang out at
the day labors waiting for construction trucks to pull up and they just jump in the back Ive seen similiar things happen at local home depots, where
people who are buying materials to upgrade thier house will literally pick 3 to 5 out of a group of 20 to help them with thier upgrades. All the woman
cant wait to get knocked up here because then their child WILL be a legal citizen with out the hassel of paperwork that they CLAIM to not
understand....AS IF WE DONT HAVE TRANSLATORS?!Im Cuban and Irish Although I dont speak spanish because my grandmother was raised to amercianize the
children,and to respect the amercian culture, to live HONESTLY, AND TO BE HARD WORKING, go to SCHOOL and get a good education, be productive.... LIVE
THE AMERICAN DREAM, I am very upset with how things have been going and I LIKE the new laws that are being set into place. Here in Florida... U CANT
EVEN GET A JOB UNLESS YOU ARE BI LINGUAL... Now, knowing more then one language is great if you plan to travel, but when you come to AMERICA, you
should LEARN TO SPEAK ENGLISH! I know its hard to learn a second language as an adult, but when your forced to learn english in order to EAT you will
learn. My great grandparents didnt have the liberty of coming to a new country and saying "WE SPEAK SPANISH AND WE DEMAND TO SPEAK TO A TRANSLATOR"
HELL NO! NOT IN THE 1940's!! Their was no bilingual people to talk to an order to go to the grocery store and buy food, or to help with understanding
the bills, THEY HAD TO LEARN IT ON THEIR OWN and you know what?! IT CAN BE DONE!
This nation is a nation built on immigrants, but those immigrants came to this country understanding that once your here, you have to comform to how
we live. And the immigrants that came, wanted to live the way we were living. They wanted our freedoms, and they were willing to adapt to our
cultural. These new age immigrants have a false sense of entitlement when they come to our country. Be proud of your hertiage but respect your
citizenship! Instead of hanging those flags in your car such as the cuban flag, PR flag, Demonican flag, Italian Flag, ECT ECT... How bout they hang
the AMERICAN flag??
And why should America give up their money to help their neighboring countries, when the mexican government is more corrupt then ours? Their
government knows of the smuggling of drugs, thats how they make their money. If America was to send money over to mexico "To help build them up" as
you say, how do we not know they wont use the money to help smuggle more drugs in this country, when we have a war on drugs? Sounds like conflict of
intrest to me..So that my friend will never happen. Non Americans making comments about our immigration issues, is neither here no there, everyone has
an opinion. They will say what they want, even though its not their problem, they shouldnt be told to mind thier own business, maybe a non american
can come up with an idea to help the immigration laws??
