    You have got to be one of many ignorant folk that believe that your biggest problem are the immigrants living in this country. Look in the mirror, look in your sons and daughters eyes and send them off to work. Send a party of the best. Go take the jobs these illegals are stealing from you. Labor work. Where a high percentage of illegals spend their days. these illegals work. I agree their is many very bad apples. the worst. But you cannot classify all illegals bad. You people that complain about illegals are the same. All talk about get them out get them out! But you won't get of the couch to take jobs. You classify everyone as illegals. You my man are W-- Trash
