What are they griping about? Do they want to have to walk even farther north to invade the USofA and go on welfare?
We have a lady friend here who owns a small Mexican food restaurant. Back when all the May day protests were going on, some of her LEGAL Hispanic workers wanted to go. She told them, "If you go, come get your LAST paycheck tomorrow". None of them attended.
Good for her. And them.
Well, I don’t think any of the illegals want to speak to my 5th or 6th generation LEGAL Hispanic neighbor Sandra. I learned some new four letter words when she talked to some illegal workers.
Back when I was a kid most of the *Mexicans* I knew didn’t have accents, and I don’t think most of them spoke Spanish. I didn’t think of them as a different race than me. I guess I vaguely knew their families, at some time, had come from Mexico or somewhere further south. Their last names were mostly Spanish, but not all of them. It wasn’t really much of an issue. I know there was some name calling between kids (as there always is), but I don’t think there was the level of animosity there is today. There seemed to be a lot of dating back and forth and lots of my friends married Mexican guys/girls. I just don’t recall it being a thing people thought that much about if you were in the same economic strata. I think this is a created issue.
Well, Sandra and her husband moved here from Ca about five years ago. They had a small just over 1000 ft home there, and sold it for over $200K. They came here and bought a house over 2000 ft, a new SUV, built a pool in their yard and had money left to pay for their grandkids’ college.
They despise the illegal immigtants, because their families went through the trouble of doing it legally generations ago. Like I said earlier, she nor her husband speak much Spanish. Mostly stuff like “No comprende” or “pendeho”.
LOL, growing up in and around NM (even when we didn’t live there my Mom’s family did so we visited often) I know most of the bad words! That was a big help to me when I taught HS in East TX which was having an influx of illegals. The native East TX folk had no clue about the culture etc, but I knew exactly what the kids were about. I got along fine with them, and the first time I knew exactly what they were saying when they were using that language in my class, I got a level of respect. It was funny to me, because it wasn’t my intent at all, but heck, it worked because it made them settle down and they didn’t give me much trouble after that.
