A normal work day....

On my way to work this morning, I drove past the apartments where all the illegals wait for someone to hire them for the day. Yep... there they all sit, and yep... people are there picking them up.... At lunch, I drove past where they are doing highway construction... Sure enough, they have plenty of folks working... I see the yard crews are out in full force too.... What happened to shutting cities down? How come all these folks showed up to work today? Maybe these are the people who I keep hearing about that "are only here to make a decent living". So... Who is protesting? The lazy-asses who came here to suck off the government tit maybe? The folks who INS should be rounding up while they are all gathered in one place? The folks who broke into our country and are now demanding we pay their way? We should be celebrating today. We should be celebrating the largest single-day roundup ever by INS. It won't happen... but... wouldn't it be nice? So... quick question.... If, on this "Day without immigrants"... if the country goes on as normal.... We work and live as we always do... what happens next?

I'll never be able to get an answer to the question I really want asked...how many of the people protesting were actually going to go to work today anyway?

Its amazing how so many people can protest and complain about an Immigration Bill. What do they care? They didn't pay attention to the ORIGINAL immigration laws so who cares? All I can say is they need to shut the hell up. In my eyes they are criminals. My ancestors came over and went through Ellis Island legally. No one complained when Italians, Germans, Irishmen, etc. were deported for coming over illegal, so why should we listen to all these others? If you were born here and your parents weren't and they get deported, stop bitching, get the education that you are milking form the government and bring them back legally. This insanity needs to end. This country is for Americans defined by those who are either born here or follow the established laws and processes and take the tests. If that don't apply, get the hell out!

Sorry to ramble on Guppy, this topic just burns my britches and I haven't had the time to post about it. Take care.

My question would be how many of them actually were illegals? That'll never get answered. I did notice today though that our new hospital building that is mainly being built by foreigners were all missing today.

Actually, most are legal immigrants for the very reason you mentioned. Most of the illegals were not likely to show up for fear of being rounded up by INS.

You stated it very well. I live in northern California and the threat was that our town would be shut down. I see no difference here at all today, maybe a few more young children wandering the streets...
