LA.. and Illegals aka day laborers

Hello boys and girls we're now going to talk about one of my biggest pet peeves. Illegal Immigrants.
How do you equate day laborers with illegal immigrants you ask? Uhmmm because the bulk of them ARE illegal immigrants. They do the day labor because they get paid under the table in cash and the people who hire them don't have to pay benefits, or taxes on them.

from the article:
The Los Angeles City Council has recently approved an ordinance that requires all new home improvement stores in their jurisdiction to construct day laborer centers on their private property as a prerequisite for a business license. The stores will be required to provide shelter, drinking water, bathrooms, and trash cans for any and all day laborers who happen upon the company’s property. The city reasons that day laborers are causing too many problems along the streets and, since home improvement stores have become the favorite hangout of day laborers, the private businesses should be the ones to deal with it. Problems often associated with day laborers include the “swarming” of vehicles in the middle of roadways as the laborers seek work, public urination, public drunkenness, the antagonizing of patrons (e.g. catcalls), and basic loitering. The author of the ordinance describes these as “public safety and quality of life issues.”

Here's a novel concept..round them up and send them back to Mexico! Its not rocket science.

Here's the link for the article...I'm to pissed to write a civil and sane sounding entry at the moment:

Feel free to drop a line but try and keep it civil if it breaks into a heated discussion.
