Meanwhile, illegals are sweating 20 hrs. a day in a closed warehouse in 98 degree temps, fed a tortilla and beans once a day, and kept chained to their machines. And all this is being perpetrated by their own people who have smuggled them here for a better life



If you know of anyone...legal or illegal chained to anything...Please call 911...anyone

PS...I wish I could get some good Beans and Tortillas

Simple answer is, They did not have to. Because they were not Illegal Aliens.
You see, The [u]indians[/u] populated what is now the U.S.A. but they did not control it.
Look back at history and you will notice that the strong conquer the weak, they take over the land. It was and still is a fact of life. The Indians did this amongst themselves for ever.
I must add here that I have nothing against [u]Indians[/u]. Just stating facts.


Proven by in your previous message was clearly directed at me...


Geez, I'm sick and tired of hearing some of you Native Americans pointing your fingers at non Native Americans and calling them/us Illegal Aliens.


Also in response to my initial post here in this thread. Never once did I explicitly say that you were illegal aliens.

Splendere & OpenWaterCaptn clearly have a self described sense of “Entitlement.” So some piece of paper is all that a person has to have that says they are Legal?

Mefeh...

Hilarious.

Princess Strudel clap clap clap

bugsbro what a load of crock
only wm can be denied a job because of their skin/gender.


I was discriminated last year very openly and blatantly here in SE WI whenI was told by a Co that I had to “cut my hair.” My immediate response was “Ummm... I’m Native American and I’m not going to cut my hair.” Even if I wasn’t N.A. I still don’t see the point to adhering to an artificial notion (be it religious or cultural) that is derived from Caucasians from across the pond.

I’m not going to “cut my hair” my older brother and his son (my nephew) both have long hair and what kind of message would it send to my my nephew adhering to some fabricated nonsense policy?

Oh what’s even weirder about this Co is that at another location two young 20 - 23 Blond Haired Blue eyed males both had hair past there shoulders. One was very shaggy and he wasn’t even wearing a ponytail. They do HOWEVER allow men to have “2” ear rings. WTF?!?!?

So your “wm” is laughable at best.

Optimistically_Cynical I can. I have a blood line that goes back to just around the late Ice Age. But if you mean we too are “immigrates” then that means we are ALL Eastern Africans from 3 million years ago with hairy bodies and looking almost like Chimps. But the main cause is genetic mutation and the sun/lack there of the sun that has effected every single human’s skin color.

You might want to re-examine the above statements as they are for the most part untrue.

While most Western Indian tribes tended to be nomadic and thus had few or no fixed structures many of the Eastern Indian tribes have permanent communities with fixed permanent structures. Additionally, despite being nomadic the western tribes had traditional areas where they would settle depending upon the season. They had grounds where the hunted, they had summer camps and winter camps and these tended to be the same areas year after year as they were passed down through generations.

While the modern concept of land ownership was foreign to the Indians they very actively participated in territorial exclusivity. Specific areas or territories were regarded as belonging to specific tribes and as such were vigorously protected. Hunting areas were vigorously defended against other tribes encroachment as were living areas, water sources and other needed resources. Other tribes, fur trappers, hunters and settlers were often killed, driven out or forced to barter to be able to pass through these protected territories. Most of the great Indian vs. Indian wars were territorial in nature.

So yes, while the concept of deeded land ownership was a concept that was not present that is not to say that territorialism was not actively practiced long before the White man encroached upon their lands.

I know this doesn't have anything to to with the topic at hand but I felt the need to correct the misstatement of fact.......

Carry on......


Yeah, you might want to re-examine what I said as well, because I said basically the exact same thing in a much more succinct manner. I had a professor who use to ask why one would write a novel when you need three words to say something.

I can just see an "Indian vs Indian" war.

One is sitting cross legged with a flute and a basket and a Cobra inside, trying to use it to "bite" his enemy.

The other is riding on an Elephant (not the African one, the OTHER one) getting ready to "trample" his opponent.

Mean while a tiger is sitting in the long grass getting ready to pounce on either one.

Mr-Amazing,
Get of your high horse. Native Americans have and will be called Indians. It is nothing you can change. It is not a derogatory term. Trying to ridicule people 'cause they chose to use the word "Indian" is not going to make you look any better. Just say you prefer to be called Native American.
Did you know that one of the PC words for Mexicans living in the U.S.A. is "Hispanic"? And that many do not like the word at all.
I'm just curious now. Do you adhere to your tribes beliefs? Do you speak the language fluently? Are you involved with programs to educate people about the past?
And finally, are you full blooded Native American?
Now, back to what this thread is about.
Would you report an employer if you did not get the job you wanted but you learned it was given to an Illegal Alien?

Optimistically_Cynical never said it was an overly “offensive” term like: N*gger, Ch*nk, Go*k, Be@ner, R@ghead, Cr@cka, Injun or what ever else.

We are all adults here, but it’s like calling a Manatee a “Sea Cow” it is not a Cow of any sort no matter how many uneducated people call it that. Same with I expect 4 or 5 year olds to call a tailless Ape a “monkey” but I don’t expect a 42 year old to do that. What if I were to make up a name name for Caucasians? Just because all of the subsequently people who had contact with Columbus and his people call people here “Indians” doesn’t make it right.

What if people started to call cats, dogs or vice versa?

Look on wikipedia, I’m not making this up (the “Indian” word debate that is.)

Yes, when we say Caucasian/Indigenous Europeans we all have an idea basically what they look like. Either any of these combinations: Round eyes, Blue, Green or Brown eyes, half have brown hair, a 3rd blond hair, the rest Red. Very pale and/or some have olive skin at darkest.

“Indian” is still a misnomer as is calling all soft drinks “coke” like they do in the south. How could a type also be a generalized broad term? Its either a “soda” or a “pop” now I snicker personally at “pop” but at least there isn’t a brand of soft drink called “pop” or soda for that matter.

Look that up too.

Iamtechnogod

I recently had a discussion on a Horror Forum Board about what to call people from East Asia. This one guy said the broad term simple “Asian” I informed him that actually describes: Indian, Muslim/Arabic, Oriental and possibly even “White Russians.” He said that “Oriental” was outdated. One of my best buddies girls said she took no offense to “Oriental” as she is Filipino. As did another girl I met Sat nite who is Cambodian.

That Horror Forum guy also said that it’s “OK “ to call their rugs and art work, “Oriental” but not the people.

Me WTF?

And yes, you might find uneducated Natives who call themselves “Indians” but as I pointed out in the uneducated south (that’s not a poor generalization ether btw) they call sodas/pop “cokes.”

No. Not full blooded. I do have tribal I.D. and most people guess either Mexican or Native. Same with my nieces/nephew and brother. They look either Mexican or Native. Which one isn’t that big a leap from another. I was adopted and raised by Caucasians. I’m trying to learn and adapt as much as I can about my past., as I took a course in College.

Optimistically_Cynical

Don’t be silly. If I were to get a Animal Tattoo that was “Native” to my ethnic heritage or territory I would get either a Cougar, Bald Eagle, White Tailed Deer or Bobcat. I also like most fish, berries, maze other indigenous food.

The "Real" Indian stereo types had to originate from somewhere. So Tigers, Elephants and Cobras don’t live in India?

George Lopez did the voice of that Chihuahua in Beverly Hills Chihuahua movie. You think that is offensive too? He got paid millions of dollar btw.

What you have done is used an Ad Homiem against me. Can we bring the subject more back to the topic instead of you derailing the tread?

I hate the term "illegal aliens" no one is illegal. But they are undocumented workers. Also, with the studying I have done, I learned that these undocumented workers work harder than so-called documented workers.

I have a very financially well-off friend, who came here, legally, from Ecuador, to pursue her bachelor's degree and see the world. After graduation, she got a job. The governmental agency that hired her KNEW that she was here on a student visa that would soon expire, and hired her anyway. She did an awesome job, and of course, was bilingual-receiving no extra pay for that knowledge. As her student visa expired, she learned that she could not legally remain here and continue to work, even though she ahd a very expensive attorney, a degree, a secure productive job, and many contacts. She had to go back because the agency that hired her would not agree, in writing, to pay the cost of her airfare home, if she should be fired or quit within the first 3 years of employment...those were the terms of a work visa that she could have gotten. She even offered to put it in writing that she could and would happily pay her own way home, should her employment end.

With a college degree, her own money, family money, and many contacts within government....she couldn't manage to be here legally. How can anyone reasonably expect an ignorant uneducated poor farmer, or an illiterate mother, or someone with a 5th grade education to even know it is illegal, let alone know how to do it legally? Or, for that matter to be able to do it at all?!?

This illistates one of the major problems...Verification of documents.

If a illegal buys fake documents and goes for a job, how is the empolyer to know if the person's documents are fake...who is he to call? SSA? DMV? Have you tried calling them to ask a question?

Now just think of all employers calling to check his employee's SS no.. good luck getting thru.

Now to OP's question is it wrong...Should be Can you report illegals...If so where and how...

and please dont give me tha 1-800 number to ICE...

"You can't register in school unless you have a social security number. You can't get welfare unless you have a social security number. If they have a social security number then they are not illegal. Learn your info before you spout your ignorance".--Luna


Luna's very naive and seems not to understand that illegals have several SSN's. She is just displaying a very good example of the dumbing down of the American youth by the Government run public school system.

Right now amnesty for illegals seems to be a rising issue in the future. But nobody is talking about the drain on the social security system that the newly "legalized" immigrants will have on it.

And nobody is talking about the funding being cut off (Courtesy of Obama's stimulus package) for the very effective E-verify system(99% effective), which verified a workers citizenship for roughly 5 dollars a worker.

Both political parties are letting illegals cross our border so that the middle class can be shrunk and ultimately destroyed. Then when things get rough the people will ask for or even demand socialism as a last result.

Sad, very very sad.......

The Government does not have a problem with illegal immigrants. They have a problem with the middle class.

That's why we have unfair free trade agreements like NAFTA.

Candidate Obama told us that he thought NAFTA was a total failure. But President Obama has skirted this very important issue. What happened to "change"?

I assume that we will still be in NAFTA by the the end of Obama's 1st term .

Its really easy to see what's going on here--The Government needs "us" (The American people) to need them.


"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them".

"My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government".

"Our country is now taking so steady a course as to show by what road it will pass to destruction, to wit: by consolidation of power first, and then corruption, its necessary consequence".

"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not".

Illegals DO get treated in the ER for free! It has nothing to do with Welfare. There are plenty of other Federal Programs they get $$$ from. This really has nothing to do with IQ...I have seen my whole neighborhood go s-l-o-w-l-y down the toilet til it now resembles the ghetto with 6 broken down cars in one front yard, beat up and nasty dirty sofas on front porches, bags of garbage piled 10+ft high and 10ft wide...bringing rats and huge opossums to the yards at night.
I work hard and long hours as an ER RN and I do resent them taking up my time when I could be taking care of someone who works and also pays taxes but has to pay or their ER visit....the paying people get billed higher to make up for those who are "self pays", but don't pay their bills. WHY shouldn't we be angry???

Optimistically and Dance I have always appreciated your feedback and posts...thank you!

Dance: I love the fact that you feel that it would be so much easier if our gov't would get their crap together (if that's what I read correctly above), however, it's not going to happen any time soon as we both know. There is no 'enforcement' that wants to deal with it, let alone can handle it.

I dated an FBI agent/Special Ops Agent for 4 years here in a major city and he told me that even they could not, would not/have no desire to handle it because they felt out numbered. How sad is that? So what....our gov't and the people that we think are supposed to protect us are allowing crime to go on? And when I say crime, YES, I do mean Illegals coming into our country because our gov't is giving up because they're outnumbered?

Hey, I'm all for everyone living in harmony and living as one. But......do it legally - speak and learn our language fluently - just as other's would expect if we moved to their country...and forget all the red tape bullshit. We all know why other's move to our country. We're awesome! We have a lot to offer.

Please, just don't take advantage of it and we'll all get along.

The article below is for Luna.
By Melissa Ludwig - Express-News

In elementary school, Benita Veliz dreaded substitute teachers. Her classmates would act up and the sub would threaten to call the principal, a prospect so upsetting to Veliz that her regular teacher began placing her in a colleague’s classroom on days the teacher could not make it to class.

Imagine how Veliz, now 23, reacted this January when she was thrown in jail after a traffic stop because she is an unauthorized immigrant.

“To go from that to being in jail was surreal,” Veliz said, tears welling in her eyes.

Veliz’s parents brought her across the border when she was 8 years old. She worked doggedly in school, graduating valedictorian of her class at Jefferson High School in 2002 and later from St. Mary’s University. She works as a secretary for a church and dreams of going to law school.

However, if Congress doesn’t change immigration laws, Veliz most likely will be deported to Mexico. She has an immigration hearing scheduled in June.

Like the estimated 65,000 unauthorized immigrants who graduate from U.S. high schools each year, Veliz has pinned her hopes for the future on the DREAM Act, a bill that would provide a path to citizenship for children brought here by their parents before age 16.

Under the act, immigrants must serve in the military or earn a college degree to stay permanently. After failures in past years, lawmakers reintroduced the bill last month.

With a Democratic-controlled Congress and a supportive president, advocates say the stars could align this year.

“The (presidential) election was a real game changer on this,” said Paco Fabian, a spokesman for America’s Voice, a campaign for comprehensive immigration reform.

As in years past, the DREAM Act will face opposition from groups such as the Federation for American Immigration Reform. According to director Ira Mehlman, the act creates an incentive for parents to break the law. Children must pay for their parents’ actions, he said.

“It isn’t fair, but it is the parents who created the situation,” Mehlman said.

Giving up isn’t in Veliz’s vocabulary.

“You don’t have to accept that,” Veliz said. “You can make a conscious decision to fight for justice.”

The consequences of Veliz’s status didn’t hit until high school, when her friends began getting drivers’ licenses and jobs at McDonald’s. She realized her college dreams were imperiled because she wasn’t eligible for federal financial aid.

People have said she should have gone back to Mexico and applied for residency.

“At 14, was I going to drive over to Mexico? And do what? Stay with who?” Veliz said.

The last time she visited relatives in Mexico, she was 6. They had no electricity or running water, and she rode a donkey to reach the remote outpost.

Instead, Veliz worked feverishly to pack her resume with achievements, from joining Future Farmers of America to performing in the class musical.

Claiming she’s not naturally smart, Veliz took the hardest classes at Jefferson, getting to school early and staying late for extra tutoring. She didn’t like to hear other kids make excuses — I’m poor, I’m not good at school, my dad is an alcoholic.

“Whatever, whatever, whatever,” Veliz said. “I’m going to overcome it.”

A testament to her tenacity, Veliz did all this with a tumor growing silently in her nose, making her persistently sick with what doctors told her was allergies.

When doctors finally diagnosed and removed the benign tumor, Veliz realized she had been breathing through her mouth for five years.

Her hard work paid off with a full scholarship to St. Mary’s University. But after graduation, her options were limited.

In January, a police officer stopped her for rolling through a stop sign. Veliz didn’t have a driver’s license or residency documents, and the officer handcuffed her and turned her over to immigration officials.

Veliz assumed she would find a legal avenue to stay, but a lawyer quickly dashed her hopes.

“She told me there was nothing I could do. I had images of being thrown out of a van in Mexico,” Veliz said.

That’s when Veliz decided to go public.

Her story appeared in a New York Times column, and her friends started a Facebook group called “Don’t Deport Benita Veliz.” Several television stations picked up on the story and in a couple of weeks, she is scheduled to appear on a national Spanish language show called “Al Punto” with Jorge Ramos.

On her way to becoming the national poster child for the DREAM Act, Veliz has mixed feelings about the publicity.

“It’s not about Benita Veliz getting deported,” she said. “It’s about kids all across the nation in this situation who are not free to speak out. It’s wasted potential.”

More than anything, Veliz just wants to work. And pay taxes.

“I want to give back,” Veliz said. “By deporting me, I will never have that opportunity.”

Not only is she an Illegal Alien, she went to school without a Social Security number. She even got a full scholarship to a local university. How is that possible Luna? She has been driving without a drivers license. Another thing illegals tend to do. Just remember, driving is a privilege not a right.

She is a CRIMINAL and should be deported.

This seems to be a half story here.

I do not know about k-12, but I know we have hundreds of thousands of people who go to our colleges and universities without a Social Security Number. It is not a requirement to get into a college or a University.

Also, as far as the scholarship goes, those are awarded based on performance in numerous areas such as grade performance, athletic ability, or numerous other criteria. Scholarships are most often dollars from private individuals or organization or other such organizations such as Non-Profits and the like and again, do not require a Social Security Number.

but our ancestors applied for citizenship the proper way not crossing the boarders of this country and had to learn English ,go to classes and did everything to become a us citizen. The illegal in the country are taking good jobs from American citizens that need the work. they are causing a financial strain on our hospitals by getting free care and if they are pregnant the baby is a us citizen getting free medical care. my daughter is 22 and not able to find a job and if she needs medical attention she is afraid to go to the hospital because they will report it to the credit bureau what does an illegal immigrants have to worry about. its illegal to rob a bank, store. lets adopt the same laws that Mexico has for people entering there country illegal !!!!

Recently I went to a construction site at a High School.
As I was waiting to get paid there was a meeting going on. The Job supervisor was giving praise to the workers in the room. I about hit the floor when I noticed there was an interpreter in the room repeating what he said. The boss had to say a sentence then the interpreter would repeat it.
A few weeks later I went to the same job site. And again heard the Supervisor. This time he was upset. In a very stern voice he told the workers what had gone wrong. Then the interpreter had to repeat it. Of course, he did not use the same stern voice.
Any communication between a boss and an employee should be in English. ALL the workers SHOULD be able to READ, WRITE and UNDERSTAND the English language.
Why this makes me a racist I do not know.

When or if you own your own business, you can make any rules you want. You can force them to do all their business in English. You can force them to wear Uniforms. For all I care you can make them all wear pink frilly panties and halter tops. That's your choice.

As far as my business, I'm going to take the best worker I can find, whatever language they speak. As long as they have the skills that I need in the job I'm looking for, and I feel they are the best fit for that job, then that is who is getting hired.


Why this makes me a racist I do not know.


I don't know either. To me, it sounds like a foolish business decision, but hey, it's your business. I'm not going to tell you how to run it.

And one of the qualities of that best worker would be the ability to communicate in English with coworkers, customers and Management. Given the current economy and the multitude of American citizens out of work I would bet that you could find an English speaking person as your best candidate.


Well, first of all, your making lots of assumptions here.

First of all, whose to say that I or the people I hire (including other employees and management) are not also fluent in other languages such as Spanish?

Second, not all employees have to communicate with customers.


Given the current economy and the multitude of American citizens out of work I would bet that you could find an English speaking person as your best candidate.



With all other skills being equal there really is no justification, business or otherwise, to justify hiring a non-English speaking employee when so many Citizens are out of work.


Not necessarily. And especially if I was fluent in other languages such as Spanish. Also, consider this. I have a worker who is fluent in a language I don't know. I could reject that employee, or I could hire that employee, find an interpreter, and increase my customer base. I'll take the latter. Possibility of more profits for a rather minute problem.


They can have all the skills and motivation in the world but if you cannot communicate with them how will you Manage them?


Again, a minute problem. Interpreters would work just fine.


If they cannot communicate with their coworkers how will they work in a team?


Not all employees must work with a team. And again, for those that need to, interpreters can be a wondrous thing.


Will you hire people of so many different languages that even simple written communication will need to be written in seven different languages?


With the advent of computers, there is this wondrous thing called a translator in which I can take a document and translate it into several different language with nothing more than the click of a button.

And you know, there is always the possibility of learning another language. I know it seems difficult, but in the end, it can be quite rewarding.

But let's ask this a different way. Let's not consider illegal immigrants. Let's take this communication scenario and consider it with a Deaf person. They don't speak English. And in many cases, their written English is choppy at best. Are they now also unworthy of being hired?
