If an American were in mex. and tried to work or ask directions they most likely would get mugged or worse. Accelerated deportation is the key to better our community.

Well That's not true. My husband and i own property in Mexico, whenever we move down there the people are nice to us. That German guy that posted about an immigrant helping him is right, i have had help from them too - don't know why people see them as criminals. They work hard like me and my husband and are family people with religious values, so i totally agree with that german poster.
I think it is just racist people who use the anti-immigrant mask to hde their true inner racist self.
It's a shame, i have had that house in Mexico and never had problems, i was even invited to a huge party from someone i didn't even know..that's how nice people around there are.
Anyways, sometimes when i come back to Kansas (i was born there) i see too many people thinking racist things, so sometimes i do not even want to come back, it's a total disgrace that people are starting to be so ignorant.

There's nothing at all racist about demanding immigration enforcement and strong border control. It is racist in the extreme to suggest that Latinos are somehow above the law.

"Wolfgang" - if you are going to make a fake post, at least put some effort into it. Find someone who is an actual German speaker to help you write it.

"Some of these groups don't like the rules that the center imposes, which include no drinking or gambling." Bummer

If you want to support a group, support our Veterans with work and money. If you are oblivous to their plight, take a visit to the VA hospital in Palo Alto.

This money would be better spent on US citizens. Instead we spend it on Illegal immigrants who could care less about our country. Time to vote out the city council.
