Re: “Guest Commentary

My parents came to this country from Eastern Europe, didn't speak the language, had no money, yet somehow became citizens, worked hard, never, ever denounced the country they came to live in, or carried their flag of origin and waved it in everyone's face. If someone leaves their country because they can't survive and want to make their life in America, it is not because they love where they come from. They are leaving because they don't like it there, or are unsafe, so why do they still act like Mexico is a paradise. I would be embarrassed to say I came from a country that couldn't find the way to value their people. So all of you Mexicans that I myself have heard complaining how bad America is either go back, and take your flags with you, or shut the hell up, be happy you have people that would be willing to rent to you. My immigrant parents wouldn't have. And all the detainees who are in prison because of the crimes they committed get sent back and turn around and come right back...they laugh at the American Justice system...we getting a free ride baby..from these stupid gringo's was a favorite term. And doesn't a landlord have to pay taxes on the properties being rented, and the tenants name has to be documented as living there. How many of you do real background checks to ensure you are not renting to repeat offenders. You do realize when someone is stopped for speeding or operating a vehicle recklessly they need to show a license and registration for the vehicle. When the police run the check some are wanted felons, child molesters, drug and people smugglers. What shall we do with them, provide them equal employment, fair housing, free medical care? I know a lot of mexicans are hard workers, but their are some that are criminals, take advantage of a system that can't help their own people, I say if you are not breaking the law, assist in their status, if they are here to commit crimes, and repeatedly do so....put an electric fence up same as they do in the prisons, the first time they try to come across it' s a gentle push, but then the intensity keeps building until they are jolted, a bit archaic, but I like the idea. Bottom line is law abiding citizens do try to stay under the radar. But the one's that have records, come back and find some one's teenage daughter to impregnate and then leave those kids, go off and commit crimes, end up in jail, do their time end up at the detention centers..how do their deserted families afford the high rents in tucson, 1200 plus for a 3 or 4 bedroom, how do they afford that? Do they go on section 8. I don't know. I met hundreds of men whose kids were being raised by teenage girls.One more thing, I do see way way way too many very young women with a multitude of children...Is there no planned parenthood in Arizona, and if there is why isn't their location posted and translated on the school buses and bus stops... i just keep thinking of A Clockwork Orange...
