You've added nothing to this discourse except for typical baseless accusations. I'd imagine that, living in Ojai, you need plenty of cheap Mexicans to manicure your lawn and take care of your favorite golf-courses. How dare you simplify such a complicated issue to ?racism?... my wife is Mexican, and my first child is half Mexican... so don't even go there. Most Mexicans I've talked to (and I employ plenty) admit the problem is out of control, with dozens of people crammed into tiny houses off Milpas St. in Santa Barbara. Instead of blindly accusing anyone who recognizes the problem as ?racist? (just as many conservatives blindly accuse anyone who's here without papers as a ?criminal? who should be deported), perhaps you should talk to average Joes. Like my friend in Vegas who's been driven out of his roofing business (income cut by a 1/3 in just the past few years) because immigrants have created a Spanish-only waterproofers union.
