Jobs like that. Maids for hotels. In the last hotel I went to most of them where Mexican Maids.

The low-paying hared jobs are what they're willing to do because it's better the Mexico.

And have you ever heard of the drug wars in Mexico? And the people who have nothing to do with it come across seeking a better life. But, the ones with drugs should be sent back. I agree with that.



I have seen Americans doing those jobs lots, in fact I have never seen any Mexicans doing those jobs,and you should watch dirty jobs most of the people on that show are Americans

I have to agree with Shayok. I'm not sure exactly my views on this law, as it seems like not all the facts are being revealed to me. Anyone wish to give me both sides of the story? And what EXACTLY is the law?

Actually, Shayok, it's unconstitutional because they are targeting Hispanic looking people, which is racist. They wouldn't question a Caucasian because there aren't very many of them in Mexico and South America. I'm sorry if I sound annoying.

Well the law basically is that they can profile Hispanic-looking people (as wildwolf said) and check their background and everything to see if they're illegal or not. The part everyone's calling racist is that it's only Hispanics, no one else.

Okay. After about two weeks I've calmed down. Take deep breaths... Oh and Jack, I do watch dirty jobs.
