Immigrants raise ire

Am I mad about this? You bet I am. I am from a small town in Southern California (Brawley) I was raised there, and my father and husband worked for 70 cents an hour in the late 40s and early 50s, yet all these illegal came across the border and took jobs from our people at a lower rate. Now here they are coming in herds, having babies at our cost.

You can’t go in and have a baby unless you are willing to pay your part and pick up the tab of theirs. Now they have marched, skipped school, did not go to work and did not buy anything on May 1. How dare they show us they will do whatever they want in this country when they are here illegally. Give them an inch and they will take a mile.

Who is it going to hurt? You and me. They are taking jobs from you, your children and your children’s children. Every employer that hires illegal Mexicans should be fined, if more than three times should lose his/her licenses. They already have more rights then you and I have. Charity starts at home, then we reach out to others. Better look out, I know what can happen here. I have been there.
