I personally do not want to learn another language to order a meal, fix the mower, or whatever little project or plans I have. I do not wish to offend but I am feeling alienated in my own little farm town.
My town is over run with mexican food joints.
At least learn to speak english people.
Sorry, I try to be quiet and mind my own business. You asked, so I gave my honest opinion.
And KKK thugs you speak of?
They were all Democrats.
There was VERY FEW old Republicans in the south.
Republicans moved to the south to fight for voting rights and civil liberties for the minorities that lived there!
ALL civil rights acts that have moved this country forwars were submitted and passed because pleasure from the Republican politicians.
The last amnesty program was authorized by a Republican President!
It would behoove all immigrant Americans to vote Republican and stop listening to the Democratic propaganda machine.

My father came here many years ago, illegally. He tried many times to stay here, only to be deported. He gave it one final try, and he ended up not being deported. He worked in the fields for YEARS, back breaking work, for minimum wage, just to save up enough money to get his legal papers. He over came dangerous climates, deadly walks to give my family a better life. I don't understand why you american's are so cold toward mexicans. Sure, their is a few bad apples, but what race doesn't? I see the U.S most notorious serial killers were white. Ted Bundy, Charles Manson, etc. So we have a deadly drug cartel, you have the murdering KKK. People try hard to make a living for themselves and feed their children. WE work hard jobs that you wouldn't take. DO NOT start with the BS of "Oh if I could take that job I would blah blah blah" No, you wont pick strawberries for minimum wage. You people are so cold to refuse to help those in need. You act like you could put your tax money for something more useful, like what war? A war that's full of lies, killing thousands of innocent people everyday. Your country reeks in homelessness, crime, and ignorance. Our country sucks, okay cool, we know it. If you think it's so easy to fix a government why don't you fix yours? Many people, like my father, risk their lives to have a life they never could. Your ancestors came here in search of what we search for, A BETTER LIFE. The native american's welcomed them, and they stabbed them in the back. Killing and taking the men, raping and killing women, ravaging like lunatics, village to village. Or like the Irish, coming in search for money, jobs, homes, a better life. We love america, we try to obey your rules, try to gain what we can legally as much as we can. But how can we with you always putting us down. Making it seem like we're all useless and criminals.
Maybe I just dont understand why it's okay to deny others the right to find the american dream. Why others have the privilege, and other don't. Sure I understand, that you must be legalized in order to come into this country. But why not give others the chance to try to obtain what we have? Who does it hurt? The pockets of congress, those focused on greed. You don't lose sleep over it. The media and the government feeds us lies, about illegal immigration, and immigrants and you eat it all up. As if God came down and told you these things. PEOPLE WAKE UP, WE HAVE DREAMS WE HAVE FEELINGS. WE HAVE RIGHTS AS HUMAN BEINGS TO MAKE LIFE BETTER FOR OUR CHILDREN.
