I have personally worked and socialized with people from all walks of life, including illegal immigrants, and most of them are very nice, hard-working people...however, in other areas, there is gang activity increasing as a result of illegal Mexican and south american gangs - so you have to be careful.
So the moral of this story, do your best with everything around you - do unto others, in the same manner you would want them to do to you.
Now back to no jumping on peoples backs...was that the name of this post? or something like that...
Anyway, I have not witnessed such activity...but I did see a few fights nearly break out on Launch day for the 360! people trying to cut, and one guy threatening to kill the manager when he stayed all night and found out they were one short...but the Best Buy manager cleaned it up quickly and everyone was happy!
Thank you for this post. I wasn't being racist at all! Everyone took it the wrong way. If you are here and you are legal, I have no problem with that, you made the steps to making this a better country. What I don't like (actually I despise) the fact that the illegals are coming here and using all of our resources without giving back. The ones that aren't trying to learn the English language, work on the books, you know be legitimate? I don't like sneaky people and that's what they are doing, getting out of paying taxes, getting benefits they have no rights to and so on. If anyone likes to support illegals, raise your hand! I didn't think so. Thanks jedi for explaining it better than I did. ((hugs))
