Hi Ruth, I know exactly what you are talking about. I lived in Orange, CA
for 37 years. I am now in Louisiana and people in this part of the country
don't see what you see. You don't see illegal's around here. I don't think most
of the country sees the problems like you face unless they are in a boarder
state. I know they spread out throughout our country but you don't see it. I
never hear Spanish spoken here. It is frustrating when all you see are people
from other countries making their own countries right here instead of
assimilating. I remember Garden Grove and Westminster being completely taken over by
the Asians. The signs are Asian and the freeway signs say you are entering
little Saigon. This country is in great danger of losing it's identify. We are
no longer a united country but a fragmented one. It is sad. As they said
years ago, "United we stand divided we fall," and that is so true. By the way,
they also say we are all immigrants, but most of our families have been here for
generations and came in legally. A lot of us have American Indian blood. I
don't mind legal immigrants who obey the law and learn our language and become
American. That is the way it is supposed to be.
Hi: I want to thank you for sending the email in re 'new immigrants'.
Here in Southern CA we are inundated with illegals, mostly from Mexico.
Everywhere you go, all you hear is Spanish and all you see are Mexicans, Indians
(from India), Vietnamese....I could go on and on......I think we have more
immigrants than any other state and most of them are Mexicans and from Latin
America. Our schools are overcrowded, our jails are full, our ER's are in
trouble (the Mexicans use the Emergency Rooms for any and all complaints and it
is law here that they have to be taken care of), thousands of babies are
born to illegal parents and for some reason which I don't understand, if they
are born in this country, they are citizens. Some of our politicians are even
trying to get bills passed that would give them drivers licenses. Our
colleges are allowing illegal aliens to attend college at in-state tuition (out of
state citizens have to pay out of state tiution). It seems that!
a lot of politicians are bending over backwards to help these illegals.....I
for one do not understand their thinking. Of course, there is such a huge
number of Mexicans and they are for anything to help the Mexicans......they
protest, wave their Mexican flag and demand rights and privileges to which
they are not entitled. I have seen homes where there is a huge Mexican flag
on a flag pole in their front yards.
I have written letters to the Editor, the Press-Enterprise in Riverside.
Some of my letters have been published but when I write one that tells it like
it is, they do not print it. I have written to the President and members
of Congress about this subject....all I get back is a form letter (I doubt
they even read them). What is infuriating is that the President and Congress
have been aware of this problem for years but they chose not to do anything
We are in real danger of being taken over by Mexicans......right now
Southern CA is being known as Mexifornia. We would like to move out of CA but are
too old and it costs too much for do so. Besides, I think the rest of the
country is beginning to be over run with them.
I would hope that everyone calls or writes, get in touch with somehow, with
the President and Congress members and let them know how you feel about this
