I’m 70 years old. When I was growing up in Virginia, we had Jewish neighbor’s, we had Catholic neighbors, and even a few Quakers, and lots of Christian’s, and everyone got along great. We didn’t know what an “Illegal” was. Everyone came to our country for a better life, and they came the right/legal way and were met with open arms. They came and learned “OUR LANGUAGE” English…The Italians, nor the Lebanese had to have translators for anything. Their first priority was to learn English. We didn’t have to hire translators for the courtroom, or schools, or hospitals. If someone had trouble making an American understand, they had a family member who spoke a little better English, and there was never a problem, yet in today’s world Social Services, Schools, Courts, Hospitals, etc., are required by law to have translators. WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE? Is it me? Am I so old, and so far behind time that I have trouble understanding why we’re having this big problem and difference in our country?
When I was hit by a vehical as a pedestrian, one witness didn't understand english that well and her original statement would have had me at fault instead of the driver.
I have worked alot of jobs, even those that were multicultural, and it was written in the employee hand book that ENGLISH was the only language to be spoken,
out of about 35 people on the site from different trades, I estimated that over 3/4's of them were of the Spanish descent. Now that being said alone is not what I'm basing this decision on, what also caught my attention was the fact that only 1 out of 12 that I tried to speak to spoke a very heavy broken English and needless to say my question did not get answered.
If they can't understand me & I have the faintest idea that they are here illegally I will report them,
My point is that yrs. ago this was not the case.
I have seen and heard the stories of ILLEGALS committing horrendous crimes and running for the border to never ever face the punishment.

O.K. there's no ILLEGAL immigrants working in the U.S and certainly no Mexicans.
I will report away. I will make life a living hell for any illegals I come across.
Come through the front door & be welcomed.
Construction is referred to as a “job Americans won’t do.” When I started in commercial construction in 1971, a guy could raise a family and make a decent living. There were no illegal immigrants in any of the trades. One result of our government’s failure to enforce our immigration laws is that illegals have flooded the construction industry.
