Apr 27th 2010 2:28PM I absolutely agree, Remember we are not talking about the people who struggle though our immigration policies and are here legally. We are talking Illegal Immigrants, who for some reason thing that is ok, because life if tough for them back in their countries. If you are doing something illegal then that is wrong and you should be punished, sent back and never come back again.
These librals make me sick, we are paying through the nose for every benefit the illegals get. Right now most of us know people who are struggling with this economy and looking for part-time jobs or fill-in jobs in McDonalds, Dunkin Donuts, Burger King wherever, but can not be hired because the jobs are filled with people who cannot speak English very well and often speak Spanish in front of everyone who may just speak English. My daughter tried in vain to get a little part-time job to help out but was never hired because everyone asked if she could speak Spanish is this right I ask you? I don't think so. The hospitals, cities are overwhelmed with them, you can't tell whose legal or not so why not ask for papers. If they are illegal they should not be getting medical or social security or anything. They're illegal. Things have got to change. what gets me is the legal immigrants who took the time to do it correctly should be the ones that complain the loudest. They earned their rights.
Jun 23rd 2009 11:51AM I absolutely agree. We have so many new immigrants working with us and the majority speak the English language just fine. These people however, are not from Spanish speaking countries. When I think of the Asian population who not only have to learn a new language but a new alphabet. We have many Asians and other European people who call our office and never ask for someone to speak their language but most of the hispanics do. It bothers me that my country caters to them in every respect. Ignores the other immigrants and caters to them.
Dec 10th 2008 3:23PM If you own a cigar bar or work there then you know that the smoke will affect you. It is your choice to work there or own it, so itsn't it up to them to decide. But that is not what is involved, it is the insurance companies and their people who are probably blackmailing the city into doing this. It is unbelievable that they are considering this. Our rights are being stripped away, stopped trying to protect everybody we should have freedom of choice.
