I had to rant about Illegal Immigration because it is an issue that effects me and my city/state daily. Now I know that there are many passionate opinions on it, but I want to speak as someone who has seen it first hand and is surrounded by it every day.

Many people comment on Illegal Immigration, one wsy or another, from an outside view. Many who oppose or condone it have never really seen how bad it can get. They only get snippets of it from T.V. , talking points, or live in Northern, Midwestern, and Eastern States that have not been overrun by it....yet.

I am a born and raised "Angelino". A real native from Los Angeles. I have, for over 30 years seen the changes this place has gone through. I was also raised in the public school system here. I went to a predominantly "black" schools for most of my 'education', and went to a predominantly 'hispanic' school for a couple years. Being a white kid in Los Angeles was "normal" at first. Being a white teen was a little weird. I ran with black friends, did a lot of 'street' stuff, wrong crowd etc.

It was all I knew. I was basically in school with blacks and other 'minorities' (weird word). When I was a teen, around the late 80's, I noticed a big influx of Hispanic kids. It was almost overnight. I didn't really pay attention to effects of Illegal Immigration till later in life.

I was one of those kids that always thought "can't we all just get along" and said phrases like "One Love". I was all into the "Cross Colors" movement with my black friends. Thought Illegal Immigration was no big deal. I used to say things like "We stole this land from them" and made rants about "Natives", and things like that.

Jump forward to today.

It's weird how we grow into different people. Realize and see things that childlike eyes hide from us. I never thought that I would think the things I think today. I admittedly have grown into a sort of a bigot regarding Mexicans...well...sort of. It started with Illegal Immigration has spread out to take on a bigger picture.

I want to explain WHY. I want to say it publicly, even though I am "Anonymous". I don't say anything to justify myself or feel validated. I just want people to know that there are many like me, and why "we" exist.

It wasn't till I started really paying attention to politics about a decade ago, that I noticed, saw, there was something wrong. I came back to L.A. after being gone for a while, and it saddened me to witness what happened to it.

It was transformed overnight in many places that were "cool" before. It seemed that everywhere I looked there were "Hispanic" people everywhere. Like this place became a Hispanic City and nobody informed us. I say this not because it's "wrong" in any way, but because that's what happened. I mean, hell, I don't like any place that is just one type of ethnicity. I always enjoyed places with true "diversity". Even totally "white" neighborhoods creep me out.

But when I came back home to L.A. I noticed I was the "minority". I started to look around when driving on the 405 and the 10 Freeways. I always saw "brown" faces. Bumper Stickers with Mexican names of Mexican cities. Mexican flags waving with "Ranchero" or "Banda" music blasting out of some SUV. A crap load of Dodgers stickers along with a "Michocan" sticker next to it.

I started to feel like I was the stranger in my own home. I realized Los Angles had changed, and it made me sad, but I didn't see till later exactly HOW much it changed.

You don't become bigoted toward a group overnight. I was very "Liberal" before all this, I believed that we were all equal. I still do, Constitutionally speaking of course. And yes, we are all humans. All have hopes and fears, dreams and aspirations. We are all the 'same' in that way.

There are many groups and subgroups that live here. Black, Japanese, Korean, Jewish, Gay, Armenian, Chinese, Lesbian, Russian, Emo, Punk, Rock, Hip Hop, Old, Young, Mid Eastern, Indian, South American, Venezuelan, Colombian, Peruvian....every kind of race, ethnicity, and "culture" you can find.

SO why is it that I feel only bothered by "Illegals"?

Let's be straight here. When someone OTHER than Mexican says the word "Illegal" in L.A. or California, we mean "MEXICAN". Yes, there are many others that come here Illegally from other lands, but we all know what we mean.

So the question is "Why"? I thought about the "why" of it all. I can only say what I have seen and relate that. Maybe it will explain.

For me it really stared years ago when I was chronically ill and ended up in E.R. rooms a lot. I noticed that every time I went, there was always a long wait ahead of me. I never remembered hospitals being so crowded. As I sat there in pain and having numerous neurological storms going on in my body, I looked around the waiting room. I noticed it was all filled with people who didn't speak English.

Literally 85% "Hispanic" people. You stop and think, "These are adults and they hardly speak one word of English". That's how you weed out most of the "Illegals", they don't speak english, and fail or don't care to ever learn...why should they after all? (in their mind). The anger then set in when I saw MANY of them faking pain or 'acting' to get seen faster. Or many of them had a runny nose, or they bumped their head, or scratched their foot. It was like Emergency rooms became their primary care, and they used every bit of it.

I was livid because here I was with a real emergency and people who I KNEW were non citizens, took place over American. A couple E.R. I ended up in, the nurses who were "Hispanic" even seemd to have disdain for white people. I watched and observed that white people, specifically men, would be rushed through or spoken to with disrespect, and the Hispanic patients treated like babies.

It was then i started to really pay attention to Los Angeles and how Illegal Immigration affected us.

I was Downtown one day and I had to drive by the park there to go to a job interview years ago. When I passed by the park, it was filled with, well, I can only honestly say "Illegals". That is where they flock to when they cross. All of Downtown is jam backed with new "fish" for the workforce. How can I tell they were "Illegal"? Well, this may sound strange, but after years of living here, you just can.

The clothes they wear are Swap Meet clothes. No name brand shoes NEW. Large Jeans..plain shirts...hats from 99 cent stores........

tooled leather belts, OR construction boots, and plaster on their pants.

There are different signs. Yes, after a while you can "profile". May sound mean, but it's real.Downtown suddenly became a mirror of Mexico. I've been to Mexico, and it had the same characteristics.Then there are "vendors" who sell things on street corners. They usually cook things or sell fruit. None of them have licenses or answer to the same Federal guidelines or safety policies that the rest do. They set up a table or have an ice chest with their supplies right out in the open. Cops don't say anything to them, they can't. And no agency is called, it's never reported. While American business owners have to run hoops for the Franchise Tax Board and other agencies you deal with when you have a small business.

Then there are the workers which huddle around Home Depot and other large manufacturing places. If you own a truck like I do, they wave at you when you drive in. Some days(moreso lately) they run up to you. Imagine everytime you go get something for your home, you got 20 guys running toward your car. They do it even when you don't look at them.

I can literally go out right now and film 20 different places in my vicinity where they are gathered.

Here's the funny thing though. I got a ticket for not wearing a seat belt. The officer pulled me over in a parking lot where 40 guys were hanging out looking for work. Now ask me if I have "patience" or "tolerance" after that.

I have slowly seen over many years that this town has turned into a shadow of what it once was.

I've seen neighborhoods go down in value. Entire towns now are "Spanish Speaking" only. There are parts that if you're an American, you are basically not welcomed. YOU are the outsider. There are restaurants that only speak spanish. I've been to them. They will NOT speak English to you, and they will NOT serve you. But you cannot "prove" it, and discrimination laws are nowhere to be found.

The other day I saw this report.

Look at the map for California. This is what we have going on. And we here KNOW where it comes from. It's one of the biggest Elephants in the room to people that have lived here for at least over a decade.

California is broke. Now admittedly Illegal Immigration only accounts for PART of the deficits. But I think we could use the OVER TEN BILLION in these hard times, not the answer, but part of it.

Our Hospitals have closed. They ran out of money. And the rest that are open are jam packed. Our public schools have become even worse than what they were in the 80's when I attended them. I thought they were S***Holes then. It's a new level now.

With Illeal Immigration, many cities have taken on "acceptable" poverty. I say acceptable because it seems like a lot think "well, we got it better than we had it in Mexico". Then there is some sort of Mexican "status quo", which panders to a lowest common denominator.

It just seems like they don't want to integrate. Even the host families along with them.

Our State and city legislators are FILLED with Hispanic Illegal Immigration apologists who get voted in by their "constituents" more every day. Mayor Villaragosa is a prime example of what can be achieved through the "cheap vote".

Gang activity is another thing, the drugs, MS-13 influenced gangs. Those guys have the whole port area of Long Beach in their pocket. They OWN parts of the Black Market deals coming in through Long Beach. And nobody can stop them now. he Mexican drug trade is ALL OVER this place. And they have shops which act as fronts for their operations.

If you have lived here, you can see it is has been a slow INVASION of a culture that just does not seem to want to play by the rules, or at least become "American"

I don't really know what that means, but it's just a feeling. And I'm not speaking as some "patriotic" flag waving moron who has Xenophobic fantasies about "AMURKA"

I know there are many with romantic views about it all. Sort of a "root for the underdog" feeling. But spend some time here and YOU start to feel like the underdog.
It's not so romantic until you see how it can devastate a state or city considered to be your home.

Now I know the "why" of it all. We screwed Mexico with NAFTA. After that they flooded here, that's been established. While I understand their flight and reasons, I can't have sympathy anymore. How long must WE in the border cities endure this? Mexico seems to have jumped into our lives and we have no say or control in the matter. '

I NEVER signed up to live in Mexico. Even the Mexican Americans that live here never signed up. Many of them which are personal friends are PISSED.

And while the Corporations have themselves a new working/slave class...while Congressmen have cheap votes, and while cheap labor is the norm. The average "American" slowly goes out of the picture.

I don't say this as an alarmist. MOST of what I am saying is UNDERSTATED. There is so much more that I can say about this subject , it would be enough to fill a book.

But after recently viewing threads on the subject , I have to speak up and tell my side. It is NOT easy seeing your once beloved home city, turn into a dump overnight. Yeah, this place had it's problems before, but nothing like this. I could literally take a map out and point to different towns in L.A. County and show which ones are "overrun".

I am shocked that there have not been more documentaries about it, or honest journalism. It's a phenomenon that out of State/City people just don't understand the FULL spectrum of.I have had enough of it. Now there is no hatred for them in that way. I have known some really great Illegal Immigrants...great people. But the I find myself looking at them negatively as a whole. It has changed me, and I admit it.

There are MANY out there like me too. I am not alone. Maybe this shows that influx of ANY group into another breeds hatred or distrust. Maybe there is something to be said for the negatives. But all I know is something needs to be done about it. There are many other priorities such as Banks, corruption, wars for profit, etc. BUT, if you are in a city or State where this epidemic is hitting, do ALL that you can to stop it.

Learn from Los Angeles and California. Look to us if you ever doubt this can happen and happen this negatively. Do NOT let your home succumb to this or you will find yourselves jaded and cynical like never before.*

-- Up here in the n-wisconsin people are racist towards indians, when they spear fish or start their off resorvation hunts all the whites turn on the insults, never thinking they stoled or swindeld their lands. Then at night you can see some of them in the indian casino's sucking down the buffet or throwing money in the slots. My opinion is we stole the land from them so they should be allowed to steal it back. WHO hires them?? WHO lets the employer hire them? SOUNDS like sombody became a republican

I also forgot to add that my Landlord is here Illegally. He told me.

Now he's a good guy, I like him. But this building is owned by the city (a lot here are like that). Did I mention this place puts Section 8 renters ahead of the line for vacancies?? Yeah they pay $400 in rent while I pay the full $1100 BUT THAT"S another story.!!!

Back to my landlord.

When Obama won the Presidency, his friends were out on the balcony saying how "We are gonna take over this place" and how "White guys are gonna see how it feels now"

They didn't know I was on the next balcony sitting quietly hearing all this.

Heres a tip. If you are ANY race other than Hispanic or mainly Mexican, this is NOT the place for you.

What a lot of people don't know is that a lot of the Illegals here are Honduran, El Salvadoran, or Mexican. It's mainly that grouping. When we say "Illegals" there are a few possibilities of what it is, if they are "Hispanic" in appearance.

But like I said, if you are anything other than that, consider Los Angeles GONE.

They have children at higher rates, and with the positive net influx coming in from outside, you CANNOT win. In a few years I imagine Los Angeles having serious PRO Illeal legislation being put on the table. Even legislation one day asking for Mexican borders to be extended North towards San Diego.

ANother sad part of this is that I used to date Mexican women years ago. Grew up with a lot and they were very beautiful, fun to be around, loving, etc.

I have become so cynical that I can longer date a girl I know is Mexican. Why? Because most , even the America citizens, have an Uncle, Cousin, Brother, Father....someone who is here ILLEGALLY in their family, and they will defend it. Not all, but most. And I personally got tired of having that discussion.

What's even funnier. I hear a lot of American guys (mainly white guys like me) say the same thing. It's like dating Mexican girls has become taboo, and they sense it. Trust me, they can pick up that White or American guys are less and less interested in them.

Just another side effect of the "invasion"

1st off star and flag my friend star and flag

2nd of all, good luck, you will need it on here after that post

furthermore, i agree 100 percent

i grew up in ny, moved to california for some years, spent time in many different areas throughout southern ca from ventura/channel islands to hollywood

at no point was i ever racist

grew up in groups where i was usually the minority as a white person, and i had great friends (its actually the white people who stabbed me in the back in life, not a single person of culture)

however the minute i moved to california, i knew instantly what so many people talk about, especially a lot of southern california comedians

however this fact, is lost to all the people who have never lived in the area

even if they have visited, it is not the same perspective as living there

when visiting you notice the big things, the tourist things

when living there, you see the small minute details that make up a city

southern california has some SERIOUS issues

i dare anyone to walk by home depot on sunset by western and actually try to breathe

you will vomit

why? because of the sometimes hundreds to a thousand immigrants sitting on one single block in front of one store (that number doesnt count the other homeless and illegals in front of neighboring businesses

just on home depots property, there is nothing but illegals, vomit, feces, urine, blood and grime/crime

never in my life have i ever seen anything like it, and each day the super rich from the hills and the surrounding areas drive down to home depot, pick up the supplies, hire a couple guys for 20 bucks (literally) for a days work (a long back breaking day) and go back to have them install whatever in the fancy house

theres another thread i made and it seems to boil down to living conditions

by allowing illegal immigration to take place, to understand the living conditions we are not only creating or allowing, one needs only to travel to the icon of america

hollywood, sunset blvd, stop by home depot, then lets see if you still support illegal immigration

if you do, you are simply mentally handicapped plain and simple, if you cant see whats wrong with a sight like that, than god help us all

What I have noticed the overall theme here is, is that there is a PANDERING to the lowest common denominator when it comes to Illegal Immigration.

A guy who will work for less than the HOST country's usual worker, will drive down wages, it becomes a LOWEST COMMON DENOMINATOR( LCD) trend.

The neighborhoods which host Illegals, which they flock to after coming across the border, take on the collective mindset of the previous country/culture.

For instance, someone who comes here directly from Mexico might find it more acceptable to fight dogs, though most American abhor it. It might be acceptable to not wash hands while preparing food for public consumption, while we frown on it and there are Policies in place to thwart it. They may find it acceptable that motor vehicle parts lay around the front yard, while the other neighbors frown on it.

Which in turn drives home property values down, which in turn creates a negative revenue fro schools, which in turn makes schools crap, which in turn causes less education, which in turn causes more teen pregnancy and loss of higher wage workers....WHICH ALL COMES FULL CIRCLE TO COME AROUND AGAIN TO THE LOWEST COMMON DENOMINATOR....

These cycles and realations all have consequences.

Many can say it is good evidence against Multi-Culturalism...or at least the negative effect of it.

I believe America should be more UNI-CULTURED, regardless of race or ethnicity. But those that come here seem to foment THE DIVISION. The true division I feel, comes from the inability to integrate. I believe the FORCING of one culture on another, causes the host "culture"(i.e. America) to resent the invading culture.

Logically, there is very little reason for tolerance of such a thing. And I have seen full steam of what a thing can do to the host nation. More specifically a State or City locally.

Encourage people in States and Cities where the problem hasn't hit yet. Point to states like Arizona, Texas, Nevada, and California when speaking to them or in any discussion about it.

Point to us as the perfect reason why you MUST stop it. Forget about Los Angeles, or other major border cities in the South.

Los Angeles itself is DONE FOR, as they are.

Look at Texas where in certain cities, Hispanic populations have outgrown all others , over the 50% mark. Any State or City with those numbers are basically overrun. There is logistically nothing anyone can do.

Just concentrate on territory with a chance. Even in a battle, you must concede positions to the "enemy".

Mexico is winning in the places I forget them. Game over.

Unless some major shift or outcry happens, it won't go anywhere. The time to be angry was years ago.

I live near you a city that is known for its strawberries and illegals.

I worked at a exclusive gated community as security

The security supervisor was from Nicaragua.His dad had been one of Somaza's cronies and they bailed out of that place with millions and took sanctuary here in the states when he was a young child.

Rich,spoiled refugee and clueless. Had a professional wife also a "refugee" lived in a nice gated area in a big house,pool etc. Drove a Lexus SUV.

When I called him out one time on who he was and how he had gotten here(I identified him as a Nicaraguan and knowing his age and his family was well off as being a "refugee",we began having interesting conversations.

One day while working the gatehouse,he came in and asked me,"Why do you hate illegal immigrants."

I told him I don't hate immigrants(my wife was one,once) I hate those who want to jump the line so to speak.

Then I asked him if he had relatives still in Nicaragua?

He responded yes.I said consider this.

"You come home one day and when you walk inside there is your cousin from Managua sitting on the couch.You did not know he was coming and had not planned on his visit.

But you are a nice guy and offer him one of your spare bedrooms.He is not sure how long he will be there and has no plans can't work because he has a 6 month tourist visa.

He sits around all day while you are working,eating out of your fridge,using your internet. But you hold your breath because"mi casa is su casa".

He won't be there long.

Next day you come home and there is his sister.

I continued this whole scenario of how when you are nice to one they take advantage of you.

He is listening to me tell this story.They are swimming in his pool.The living room is a mess(they don't care it is not theirs).

He can't keep anything in the fridge,they eat it all.Hell they won't even replace the toilet roll.

I mean a bad scene. I asked him what he would do?

"I would throw their asses out!.

Why I asked they just came here to have what you have.

"I work hard to afford nice stuff and live in a nice place."

"And you follow all the rules?

"We have a immigration quota system for a reason. It allows a diverse group of people from all over the world to come here."After all we are a nation of immigrants."

I looked at him and said,"What was the original question?"

Remove the known ones first......that's easy enough except in sanctuary cities. Run ads asking them to leave while explaining the punishment for staying. Some will leave, next, yup the rental companies.....seize their damn property if found to be renting to illegals, employers next, screw fines, seize the company, put it's officers in jail. Banks that are making loans to illegals, seize on disc. It would take time, but we're alread paying the military as well as ICE etc.....use em.

I live on Long Island (in New York) and I have seen the Hispanic population explode as a result of illegal immigration. The main difference though is that most of the illegals here are from Central America and the Caribbean rather then Mexico. I have seen the quality of life go down the tubes, I have seen the crime and decay, I have seen MS-13 and the Latin Kings practically take control of entire neighborhoods. We have some neighborhoods where you can drive entire blocks and not see a single sign in English along with El Salvadoran and Dominican flags all over the place.

I have come to to the conclusion that it will only get worse and worse and the politicians in Washington DC, Albany, and Yaphank will just fiddle their thumbs and ignore the cancer that is consuming our country. After all you know, getting the Hispanic vote is the only thing that counts.

I just wanted to say that I admire your willingness to speak out on this subject, even though it is leaving you open to being called a racist by some.

It is not racist to speak the truth about certain things, even though some with an agenda will surely try to ignore your truthfulness, and will just focus on the fact that you are saying something that some people don't like, shooting the messenger, so to speak.

I personally am not very affected by this, even though I live in an area where the Mexican immigrants have been increasing.

However, a few years back, a Mexican family lived right across the street, and I suspected they may have been illegal, from certain things some family members said. They were nice enough to me, but there was a problem in the family with the male beating on his wife, and he had a girlfriend on the side, not that this is exclusive to any certain culture, by any means.

The wife at least, did not speak ANY english, even after having been in the US for at least 8 years. She showed up on my fiancee's doorstep one night, with her 9 year old daughter, because her husband had moved out (after knocking her around some time before this incident) and her daughter had to translate the whole story, including the abuse story, in order to ask me if she could bring the daughter over at 6 am the next day, to wait until it was time for school. Unfortunately, I wasn't going to be there the next day, so I had to say no, although I would have helped her out if I would have been planning to be there, since my daughter and hers were friends.

In the area around here where they DO live in larger numbers the crime has increased dramatically, especially domestic violence, rapes, and murders of women. Another big problem is illegals driving without licenses and without car insurance, probably because they have no documentation to be able to get these things.

When illegal immigrants are allowed infiltrate into a country, there will be no controls enforced as far as learning the language so they can be assimilated into the culture, and no controls being enforced to make sure that a criminal element is kept out.

Anyone who has done any reading about the PTB or illuminati, if you want to call it that, can find all kinds of documents out there stating that in order to break down a society, one of the ways to do it is to allow unlimited immigration. Since in this country, we officially have controls on immigration, the only way to do this is to look the other way, and allow the illegal immigration to continue.

In my opinion, nothing will be done about the problem because it is something that has been planned, and allowed to happen.

Let's let the hispanic elites tell us their thoughts on the subject in their own words.

"Go back to Boston! Go back to Plymouth Rock. Pilgrims! Get out! We are the future. You are old and tired. Go on. We have beaten you. Leave like beaten rats. You old white people. It is your duty to die. Through love of having children, we are going to take over." — Augustin Cebada, Brown Berets:

"They're afraid we're going to take over the governmental institutions and other institutions. They're right. We will take them over . . . We are here to stay." — Richard Alatorre, Los Angeles City Council .

"The American Southwest seems to be slowly returning to the jurisdiction of Mexico without firing a single shot ." — Excelsior, the national newspaper of Mexico :

"We have an aging white America . They are not making babies. They are dying. The explosion is in our population. I love it. They are sh------ in their pants with fear. I love it." — Professor Jose Angel Gutierrez , University of Texas

"Remember 187--proposition to deny taxpayer funds for services to non-citizens--it was the last gasp of white America in California " — Art Torres, Chairman of the California Democratic Party !!!

"We are politicizing every single one of these new citizens that are becoming citizens of this country. I gotta tell you that a lot of people are saying, "I'm going to go out there and vote because I want to pay them back." — Gloria Molina, Los Angeles County Supervisor !!!

"California is going to be a Hispanic state. Anyone who doesn't like it should leave." — Mario Obledo, California Coalition of Hispanic Organizations and California State Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare under Governor Jerry Brown, also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Bill Clinton

"We are practicing 'La Reconquista' in California " — Jose Pescador Osuna, Mexican Consul General

"We need to avoid a white backlash by using codes understood by Latinos." — Professor Fernando Guerra, Loyola Marymount University

Read the rest of it HERE and weep.

I have already been called a racist, hater, and holocaust denier by some people here because I speak the truth, but anyone who calls me that just doesn't want to hear the truth, and maybe they are just reflecting their own racism, or agenda, I don't know, and really don't care. My black friends and neighbors who know me would be surprised to hear it, as a matter of fact, and would defend me against such an accusation.

I don't hate anyone, but I will speak out against wrongdoing, no matter who it is that is doing it.

God Bless

I used to be afraid of being called a "racist". At one point in life, being racist to me was one of the greatest insults.

But after seeing the word thrown around freely with no value, I have no fear of it.

I also know that "Racism" involves something way more sinister or hateful than what I feel. I don't want to hurt or harm or have Mexicans/ Illegals/ Hispanics to fail I really do wish the best for everyone.

But I have admittedly become bigoted, even prejudiced over the years. I can freely admit that. I don't have shame in it though because I know that there is an origin for it, that is understandable to me to a certain extent.

I wish I grew up in some town or country where away from the whole sight of Illegal Immigration. I'm actually sad by the fact that it has caused me to feel this way, bigoted, cynical, jaded, angry, etc.

I wish the things I've seen or heard didn't exist, but they do. I sincerely hope I don't get to a point to where I am "racist". Most of me knows I don't operate that way. But when I was a younger I thought that me even being bigoted toward a group of people was impossible, and look where I am now.

The reality is, if you push someone long enough, over time, they can succumb to anything. I regret that is true many times in life.
