Naahh, we don’t have a problem with ‘migrant workers’ here!
WAYNE CO.—Five years ago, we began chronicling problems with illegals, as well as ‘documented migrant workers,’ in southeastern Illinois.
Our initial coverage of it stemmed from the obscene marches conducted by openly (loud & proud) illegal immigrants who were taking to the streets of ‘sanctuary cities’ across the country demanding amnesty or, in lieu of that, more ‘rights’ for them and their lot.
Never mind the federal laws that prohibit the presence of undocumented or improperly documented immigrants from ANY country, not just those south of the border; these fools were making their demands and doing unacceptable things like flying the Mexican flag above the American flag, or removing the American flag altogether from flagpoles at California schools.
When these marches got a little close to home, we began researching and learned that former governor Hot Rod Blagojevich had instituted “Mi Casa” loans whereby people who weren’t properly documents, but had a pay stub nevertheless, could get a home loan. This was going on primarily up north, where illegals were getting NINJA loans (no income/no job/assets) for homes worth upwards of $150,000, designed for a family of four or five….but into which the illegals were moving upwards of 30 friends and family, subsequently trashing the house, not paying their mortgage, then, when the banks foreclosed on them, stripped the place of anything removable (plumbing, wiring, cabinets, fixtures, carpets, wood flooring) and left in the dead of night.
Of course, the locals here in southern Illinois were screeching “that’s UP NORTH! We don’t have problems like that down here!!” So we went to work to see where the ‘migrant workers’ were spotted and subsequently who was employing them.
Naturally, we learned that all the Scateses were employing them in Shawneetown, but we also found them in Clay County working the hog farms, in White County working the tobacco patches and in Wayne County working the pumpkin fields.
Last night (07.15.11), our correspondent in Wayne, Old Fart, happened to be in Wal-Mart late at night and spotted the usual thing: a passel of ‘migrant workers’ doing their weekly shopping after getting paid.
As much trouble as ‘migrant workers’ (and potential illegals) have caused in Wayne, you’d think their handlers (employers) would tell them to keep their late-night traveling to a minimum….but hey, gotta have those beans and burritos, you know.
Here’s what Old Fart shot, along with some of his commentary:
“This is the scene at the Fairfield Wal Mart at approximately 11pm Friday night July 15, 2011,” O.F. wrote to us. “These Mexicans are believed to be of the illegal status as they were either just plain rude or they were unknown to words like ‘Hi how are you doing this evening!’ Even a simple waving of the hand which I thought was a universal language was unknown to these fellars.”
Old Fart said he just can’t stand it when someone comes to town and is unable or unwilling to speak the most basic words of the English language.
“I can safely assume one of these guys is named Chavo; heck maybe more than on of them is named Chavo for all I know as it seems to be a popular name among the Mexicans around this area,” O.F. told us via email. “I would say that Mexican mommas were having as big a shortage on names as they did public housing and money down in Mexico.
“My only gripe about them being here, well actually I have two, first one is if you’re gonna come here, just do it legally. Second if you’re gonna come here learn some damn English. These guys already work so I cant say nothin about the job part but I do believe the other two of my gripes are easily fulfilled since it would be an accomplishment just to get to the country much less just fill out a stack of papers and do it legally.”
“I really don’t know much about becoming a citizen of this country but I do know that if this country is so much better than Mexico that they should be willing to make an effort to do so,” O.F. said. “It seems these guys are just here to make and send money back to Mexico and disgrace this country the whole time they are here.
“Before I pulled out the camera and started taking pictures these guys seemed to be rude and obnoxious in the sense that anytime someone spoke to them in English they gave you the go to hell look.”
“I figure if someone is friendly to you then shouldn’t you at least try to be friendly back…isn’t that hard to smile, ya know! Anyhow here is Chavo and all his Mexican buddies havin a fiesta at the Fairfield Wal Mart,” O.F. concluded, promising more of the “big yellar bus” in the next email.
We have yet to locate which area farmer is employing ‘migrant workers’ this year, although a good guess is Frey Produce in western Wayne County, where they reportedly get government grants in order to ensure 70 percent of their workforce is of a migrant status. While they do make efforts to hire ‘documented’ workers, occasionally, an UNdocumented one slides in there, and since they ‘pay minimum wage,’ the local meth heads and other welfare bums won’t get out there and work in the hot fields to make a living, so that task falls to anyone who’ll take it….including these smelly, rude, 30-to-a-3-bedroom-house critters who probably AREN’T ‘documented’ at all….but it’s no PeeCee to say that, so we’re just left with chronicling it, and letting you, the readers, know about it, so you’ll know what places to avoid and when.
