Thank you for the ping. I will be interested in seeing the response to this. The system of Government has failed us completely with respect to this problem. When people come here to make a new life and live by our rules, I have no problem with their contribution. But when our laws are changed or ignored in order to benefit people who steal our identies, work without contributing to the tax base, commit crimes against our society, etc., I have a huge problem. If we want to stop it from happening, we need to stop providing easy access to our services and start implimenting the laws. It is not the fault of many people who come across the borders to take advantage of a better life, imo. It is the fault of the people on this side who allow it to continue! Since when can I walk into a hospital and get treated without paying? And stop writing everything in Spanish and requiring our people to speak that second language in order to have a job in some places! Stop making it so damned easy!

The language thing was getting really bad in Houston when we left a few years ago. Many job ads there also wanted people who spoke both English and Spanish. People were speaking Spanish all over the place. If we hadn't left, I think I would've ended up wanting to take Spanish lessons just so I could communicate with the many people there who only spoke Spanish. It shouldn't have to be that way though.
