Taking illegal immigration matters into my own hands through the selective service provider process (605 hits)

As a Black man in America, I have decided to take illegal immigration matters into my own hands through the type of companies I select as service providers. I have noticed that certain companies have what appears to be a very large population of non-English speaking (and possibly illegal) immigrants working for them. What really pisses me off is the way some of these individuals do lousy work and break or damage things in and around our homes and property, and they flat don't care! If you don't catch them in the act, then they will simply smile in your face and let you find whatever they broke or damaged long after they're gone for the day.

I am also sick and tired of the rude and arrogant manner in which owners of certain minority-owned small businesses (such as landscaping companies) handle customers and potential customers. There really seems to be a jacked up attitude of "I work on my time... not yours" and/or "I don't have to care about your needs because I have a lot of business." I think some of this behavior also translates to a certain amount of racism as well as this relates both other minorities and white folks as well. We, as Black consumers, do NOT have to put up with this crap, so do NOT allow these type of business owners and individuals make YOU feel like you need THEM so bad that we have to tolerate their attitude, behavior or LOUSY WORK if this is the case!

As for me personally, I have decided to insist that a service provider only dispatch people who speak English to my home. I don't have a problem with foreign accents, but I want to be able to communicate with whoever comes on my property without someone acting as translator for another person or the entire group! I have the right to make this request, and if a company doesn't like it then screw 'em. If the company decides to test me by getting bold, stupid, and sending someone to my house that I suspect to be an illegal immigrant, then I am going to send them packing, and feed this information to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (aka ICE) at https://www.usa.gov/deportation

Let's all get busy and see what THIS approach does for CHEAP & UPPITY business owners and illegal immigrants with little or no work ethic; can't speak and will not bother to learn English. Note that I have also been advised to come right out and ask a company if the use E-Verify as part of their pre-screening and hiring process. That said, we can make an impact if we just get pissed off and DO it!

Now... did you notice how I did not have to single out any one particular racial or ethnic group to make my point? That's because my words apply to any person of any race or ethnicity who happens to be an illegal immigrant. We all know (or should know) that illegal immigration occurs with more than just one racial and ethnic demographic, and here's an example: https://www.migrationpolicy.org/data/unaut...

In closing, let me say that I support and stand behind any and everyone of ANY race or ethnic group who enters the United States legally and takes time to learn the language of THIS country. If this is not you, then I don't want you in my home or on my property. It's as simple as that. In the case of Black folks, a much simply approach to this issue is to support Black business to the maximum extent possible.

My last job before it disabled me was as a landscape masonry contractor and I can tell you, good work like I did is definitely the exception rather than the rule. But doing the job right doesn't come cheap, and when I was in California in the Central Valley, there was no way I could match the price of the larger outfits that relied on Mexicans for their workforce. With hardscaping they can get away with work that looks okay when first done but a year later it's falling apart. As you say, long after they are gone.

Hello Steve. Sorry to hear that your last job left you disabled. I hope Workmans Comp helped somehow. With respect to my blog, I am in the process of talking with family, friends, neighbors and my HOA about the things I mentioned. and I intend to continue posting my thoughts and ideas on this matter for the foreseeable future at every opportunity. Every seed helps.
