  • Undocumented immigrants who are released from ICE detention centers often have nowhere to go. When this happens near Oakland, California, Pastor Gomez gets notified through the small community of Guatemalan immigrants that has formed around the church that he leads. Gomez, who moonlights as a local motel manager, rents a room for the migrants at the motel at his own expense. There, they are given at least one night of comfortable rest before continuing their transition. “When they get here, I tell them to forget the past-all the suffering along the journey,” says Gomez.

      Yes. They are. They migrated to the states which makes them undocumented immigrants who have no source of legal status or papers. Lol

      @Julissa Flores. How is calling them illegals a racial slur? If one enters another nation unlawfully with no documents, the word on that is illegal according to any dictionary.

      @Robert Masina lol no it's not. You say sugarcoated because it's a trigger word to get gringos more mad about the situation. Undocumented is a proper way to call them you basically calling them a racial slur by saying illegals. Like for example calling native Americans. Indians when we arent from india. That's a name Columbus called because he assume he was near the Indian Ocean which was true. Lol snowflakes get triggered over everything.

    The American Dream is for Anericans, not for invaders. There are many Americans living in poverty and poor neighborhoods. Why should invaders abandon their country and come to our country for a better life. They should protest the government and condtions in their own country, not storm into our country and demand rights.

    • Shirley Frederick

      @Robert Masina So, you think that gives them the right to invade the U.S. and expect it's citizens to take on the burden of Central Anerica's problems.
      Many U S. Citizens are also homeless poor and need medical care. Do you think U S. Tax payers want to provide for invaders before their own citizens?

      @Sosig King never made up. You have your person experiencing. I have mine. Ik many who have escaped the violence down south. You say your formerly undocumented meaning your illegal I assume. Ya sure children and women being rape is made up huh. ? People who are deported back to their country down south are killed with in a couple of days or weeks is made up huh ? Since what I can see the color your skin means more privilege then you really may think. Have you gone down south. ? Have you seen what the president and cartels are doing Latin America ? Ya sure since you don't believe what I say or do not agree you assume what I'm saying is made up. Well do some research then come talk to me when you honestly realize how poorly people of color are being treated in "America" all becuase they escape violence from their homeland. Then go down south and see with your own eyes. How they are treated there. Or speak to some who comes from south America. Then you'll understand what I'm taking about isn't made up.

And i both MEXICAN CITIZENS enrolled. And that a fact. I got ASSAULTED on Government HOUSING by the MEXICAN CITIZENS for doing mt job. They don't follow rules or our LAWS! Most of the women have sex for money. And that a fact. They MEDICARE, government HOUSING and their children a free EDUCATION. That's where DACA comes in. Any think to say.

What about their countries do they just wipe their hands and walk away! I believe instead of FOREIGN Aid give this countries FARMING EQUIPMENT. So the people can farm their lands and raise farm animals for food to Support them selves. And monitor by the U.S GOVERNMENT!!

    I support legal immigrants with open arms. Those who took the time to get proper documentation, back ground checks, and were approved to come to the US are more than welcome in the US and should be proud to be American citizens. To those that have crossed illegaly and have avoided deportation for years and have taken free money from the tax payers should be deported. If you want to be a US citizen do it the right way. Are you hiding something and know the US won't approve citizenship for a good reason? Let's deport illegals and open more jobs for US citizens regardless of skin color, white, brown, black, green, or purple. If you follow the correct process as millions have and you are approved to be a US citizen I say welcome and good luck building a great life for you and your family in the US. You are part of a great nation! Anyone that doesn't like it here in the US I ask that you look at some of these folks and those in other countries and think about how good you really have it here in the US.

    A little over a year ago I was involved in a car wreck, I was a passenger in my friend vehicle on our way back from having lunch on a Sunday afternoon when another vehicle lost control and struck our vehicle sending it into a reinforced concrete wall. The driver of the vehicle that caused the wreck was a intoxicated illegal alien that was over twice the legal limit while driving without a license, registration or insurance. I suffered serious injuries including a pneumothorax, fractured ribs, sternum, and all of the usual injuries incurred during car wrecks. I began experiencing weakness in my legs about 3 months after the wreck and one morning I was unable to walk or urinate which forced me to seek medical attention. I was diagnosed with cauda equina syndrome and rushed into emergency spinal surgery to decompress spinal nerves, this was a latent injury of the car wreck. I have since regained the ability to walk but I have not regained proper control of my bladder forcing me to rely on a catheter to empty my bladder, I am 35 years old and will most likely have to use a catheter for the rest of my life. About 2 months ago I found out that I am a victim of identity theft, a illegal alien in Texas is using my information. After my experience I want all illegals deported without any exception. I unfortunately live in the cesspool known as California which cares more for illegals then citizens. The illegal aliens that caused the wreck has a extensive criminal record and should of been deported over a decade ago but is protected by the insane liberals who control California. I have decided that I will not pay any taxes since the state cares more for illegals. My businesses is 80% cash and the small percentage of checks that I receive are cashed at liquor stores requiring no information. I avoid sales tax on most purchases by shopping online our out of state. I will be leaving this ghetto state in the next few years and it will be a happy moment when the cross the state line for the last time. Since illegals continously break the law all of the time I have decided to disregard any law that California has passed that I do not agree with.

      Whitehope, I was born and raised in California, and left many years ago. I saw the rents go up, traffic unbareable, and the crime way up. I feel for you, I really do. That once beautiful state has become a cess pool. Now these INVADERS are everywhere, in our schools in our neighborhood's, but hopefully NOT at the work place. They get food stamps, money, section 8 housing etc. Your young get out of Cali while you can and find a state you would enjoy to work and live in.

      whitehope so let me guess you are one of the “proud boys” to be proud of what your ancestors did to native Indian tribes by slaughtering, beating, and raping them from their lands and family permanently establishing a war against each other over gold and oil . That’s nothing to be proud of. That’s more cowardly then anything. Lol you say illegals make a bunch of babies when ya we do but so does white Americans. I know more white girls popping babies left and right giving them away to foster care or adoption then illegals do. As for labor jobs I work for one. There’s more brown working this jobs then their is any other race. I just recently had two white Boys applied didn’t even last a week. They last two days. They couldn’t handle the job. There is plenty of jobs hiring all over the country. Which includes labor jobs but don’t see American born citizens hopping on their opportunities they offer. Instead we have lazy Americans bitching and whining about us taking their beloved jobs. Lol that’s funny.

      @ninuxy Did I hit a nerve, are you illegal, do you have illegal family members? The United States was not built by unintelligent third world trash like yourself. The United States was founded and built by white European Christians for white European Christians. Why is the white race the only race capable of building great prosperous nations. The 10 best countries to live are all white European societies. In California alone 84 hospitals have been forced to close due to being anchor baby factories. We are going to take our country back one way or another. Who do you think did all of those jobs before the United States was flooded with third world trash, who do you think will do them once the trash is gone. Do you realize that the top 20% of wage earners pay 90% of all income tax revenue so any contributions by illegals is a tiny drop in the bucket. The small percentage of illegals that do file taxes report just enough income to claim the earned income credit allowing them to receive more money then the paid. Illegals crap out anchor babies and immediately collect benefits all while working under the table for cash. The United States has a disproportionate amount of unskilled labor in the workforce which creates too much competition for the same jobs which causes wages to be depressed. The construction economy of Southern California and other states has been destroyed by illegal aliens. Once the illegal aliens are removed from the country wages will rise for those jobs once occupied by illegals and the entire economy will grow. Who do you think does all of the jobs in states not flooded with illegal aliens.

      @whitehope Quit writing essays, Nazi punk. I don't bother reading more than a few lines.

      You failed miserably to rebut the premise I offered that destroys your moronic moaning.

      I explicitly used the word undocumented to trigger your over-sensitive existence. It was on purpose.

      Undocumented workers save us $100's of billions in return. I hope we can bring more of these hard working people and kick out lazy bums like you. They deserve more to be here than your ilk.

    • whitehope
      whitehope 28 days ago +1

      @ninuxy Stop saying undocumented because undocumented has no legal meaning, they are illegal aliens plain and simple. Illegal aliens are a 100,000,000,000 financial burden for the American tax payers. The tiny tax contributions from illegal aliens does nothing to offset the massive cost. They are not needed or welcome in the United States. We have a legal system for immigration and they simply choose not to follow it. My bicycle was stolen from my backyard when I was a kid it was later recovered when the illegal alien riding it was arrested, that was back when California actually followed federal law. My custom show car was stolen and stripped and dumped in a field when I was 19 and I eventually caught the person selling my stolen parts. After I had him arrested I was told by police that he is a illegal alien who had been deported twice previously. None of those crimes would of been committed if those people were not in the country illegally. Kate steinle would be alive today if existing immigration laws would of been enforced. If one American life would be saved by deporting all illegals the it is absolutely worth it. I caught a illegal trying to break into my utility truck to take tools and I immediately started beating him, he kept saying no hit me, no hit me and as I continued to beat him I said no come to my country, no come to my country. I did not bother calling the police since California will do nothing about it instead I knocked out most of the illegals teeth with my flashlight.

Most of us are struggling too, have crushing college debt and dislike our bosses. They have a roof over their heads, and they look well fed. Life is not easy.

    Stop comparing immigration of the 21st Century to the past. 40 yrs ago there were blue collar jobs for anyone who wanted them. After 1981 the devaulation of the Mexican Peso, opened the floodgates to the U.S, and the Mexicans undercut blue collar workers and destroyed most unions. Today automation and outsourcing have nearly wiped out most blue collar jobs. We DON'T NEED, OR WANT UNSKILLED PENNILESS PEOPLE !! THIS COUNTRY WILL SOON BE THE THIRD WORLD IF THE WICKED MARXI-CRATS ARE NOT STOPPED !

      If you talk to the farmers that hire these "illegal immigrants". They'll tell you that they can't afford to pay the type of money that Americans would require for that type of work. And with more people coming into the country, the economy grows because they spend money on food, clothing, cell phones and everything else you spend it on.

      Julissa Flores it’s been proven by economists that illegal immigration stagnates or decreases wages for middle and lower class citizens. Yes, they won’t do it for the same wage, but maybe the construction worker or maid can better support her family with the increase in her wages. also everything is soon to be automated so we don’t need anymore unskilled labor

    IT COMES AROUND
    You who bartered long held ethics, and suborned your convictions
    To support a megalomaniac with morals bent and skewed,
    Should have invested more reflection on an apropos expression:
    While you were busy with your avarice
    The devil changed you.
    Does your religious faith support this leader's blithe retort
    When condoning cold blooded murder for economic gain?
    Are you so frightened by the thought of being banished from the herd
    That you'll hold silent, or dissemble, in the face of his racist words?
    When you use politics as a proxy to make your moral choices,
    Are they easier to defend if you only listen to your hand picked voices?
    Can you defend the gassing of children, and shrug it off as collateral damage
    When our leader's immoral acts turn into illegal actions?
    Have you ever actually met one, you who live in the heartland's embrace?
    You know, an immigrant who looks different, who has a different face.
    Have you ever considered their struggle, walked a mile in their shoes?
    Ever wondered what you would do if it ever happened to you?
    With all the countless tragedies besetting the human race,
    What deprivation of your psyche precludes your showing grace?
    Have you ever asked their story, you who live near the sea?
    'Cuz in the not too distant future you might be
    A climate refugee.

      I volunteer in a food bank in San Diego CA, so can attest that desperation runs across the board from elderly; homeless; undocumented; military low-ranking; to college students. Unfortunately no easy answer to poverty in general, the main concern is the economic-earning has a huge divide & the US hasn't a system of general assistance for less fortunate as other countries have i.e. socialized medical coverage such as NHS of Britain; benefits such as CenterLink in Australia and New Zealand (as one example). I am considered a Leftist in some matters (M4A; living wage; social assistance programs for all, not selective as it is here in the USA), yet probably a Centralist when it comes to immigration. I highly recommend reading Leftist argument for immigration cap - it's called "How Many Is Too Many?" and covers aspects of what undocumented immigration has done & will perpetuate: environmental impact i.e. urban sprawl, loss of natural inhabitant as most migrate to large cities, not rural enclaves - this also reflects employment, as only 4% of undocumented is accounted to working in agricultural. Prior to discounting, it also offers sound solutions vs a wall (per se). What is most important that many do not understand, esp those who let emotions drive the narrative & not take a step back and see the entire picture is THE main employment sector that's hit most by undocumented is not the employment of you & me & our family & friends, it impacts low-income/low-skill employment sectors the most - sectors such as hospitality; construction; retail; warehouse; domestic, the same industries & sectors that experience suppression & stagnation of wages the most, hence, reason why the USA has one of the worst economic divides among western-world countries, and no living wage. Not undermining your statement as its' impact is important & on many levels whether emotional; spiritual; humanistic; but reality also has to come into play.

    My great grand parents migrated to the USA, though some would call it an escape, as many of these migrants might relate to. That's because they left a broken, poor and soon to become a facist Germany. My grandfather, only then a young man, went to fight in ww2 soon there after. When he came back, he settled and had my mother in 1949. Years later her highschool graduation present was a pair of suitcases and a co sign into the military. She didnt have much a choice, although was glad to serve this country, continuing to protect this nation as her father did. She did so for 34 years, until retirement and wasnt able to have me till later in life because of this. This was the beginning of a proud American family.
    I'm 26 and many people my age dont feel they have any direct connection to the dream that many have of coming to this country. I sure do.
