('Cry me a river, illegals denied their RIGHTS!' alert!)
For decades, Huffines Plaza in Lewisville (TX) has been an unofficial gathering spot for day laborers.
The shopping center, along Interstate 35E near State Highway 121, provides quick and easy access for employers who need an extra hand willing to give a day's work for a day's pay.
While this informal employment system seems to have worked for years with few problems, day laborers no longer feel welcome at the plaza, where "no trespassing" signs have been posted recently and police have been asked to start enforcing trespassing laws.

Please have a hanky ready when you read about how these poor 'day laborers' are being denied their RIGHT to 'informal employment' opportunities by those bad guys, the police, who are enforcing the laws!!! /sarc
When you see “undocumented” meaning, broke the law.
When you see “militant” it is a fanatical Muslim.
I hate the Media, all weekend ABC radio alluded to “racial profiling” in the Cambridge, MA case...I am so sick of Liberals...everyone (non-white, female, homosexual) is a victim.
Also when you see SEIU = illegal alien union.
Also SEIU = ACORN. Started by the same person and they are joined at the hip.
The inscription on the Statue of Liberty states, Send me your poor, your tired, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. The wretched refuse of your teeming shores. Send these, the homeless, tempest tossed to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door.
America has changed in the past 100 years.
Don’t forget that racist group La Raza (”The Race”) and their involvement in a lot of this crap! Look for a lawsuit soon or at least a threat of one against the city of Lewisville for daring to enforce their laws!! There will probably be huge protests in the very parking lots the police are trying to clean up—it’s maddening to see this “they got rights!” POV from the newspaper that is supposed to report the FACTS and not take sides!!! Arrgggghhhh!!!
Yes, those people were coming to LIVE HERE and be Americans, not to get money to send back to Mexico.
” Send me your poor, your tired, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”
The French did it to us... :)
Personally I would rather they referred to them as invaders. They didn't just break the law they actually invaded our country.
