I'm sure glad the city council sees fit to use taxpayers money to help people violate US immigration and employment laws. It gives me that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you throw up in your mouth and swallow it!

IT MIGHT BE NICE TO HAVE MORE PEOPLE GAINFULLY EMPLOYED AS LONG AS THE EARNED MONEY ISN'T WASTED ON STUPID ELECTRONIC BEEPER CAR ALARMS. HOW MUCH STUPID NOISE DO WE NEED WHERE WE LIVE AND WORK AND SLEEP?

I have a question. What makes these people think that the only people who use a day worker center are all illegal? To me that is insulting. Perhaps if you did a job that needs to get a job on a daily basis you would understand how the center works. A work center like this gives the employers looking for day workers someplace to go other then getting stalked by the people outside of Lowe's and Home Depot. It gives those people now a place to go and get hired other then hoping outside of Lowe's or Home Depot as well. I have seen how it helped in Los Angeles a couple different Home Depots and should let it have the proper chance to do its community a service.
