This could be the solution to the Illegal Immigration issue.Â I received this via email today, and as usual when things are forwarded, there’s no telling if it’s true or not.Â But whether or not it’s true is irrelevant.Â It’s a darn good idea.Â What do you think?Â
I have a friend who is president of his homeowner’s association in Washington D.C. They are having a terrible problem with trash on the side of the road that is around his association’s homes.The reasonÂ according to Wallace (my friend) is, there is being built just next to them, six new homes…..big ones! Wallace said the trash is coming from the Mexican work crews working at the construction sites. (McDonald Bags, Burger King trash, etc). He has pleaded with the site supervisors and the general contractor to no avail, called the City,County, the Police and got no help.
Â So………………guess what some people in his community did?Â They organized about twenty folks, named themselves The “Inner Neighborhood Services” to go out at lunch time and “police” the trash themselves.
It is what they did while picking up the trash that is HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!Â They got some navy blue baseball caps and had the initials “INS” in gold put on the caps. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist, however, to understand what they hoped people would think it means.
Well the day after their first pick up detail, with them wearing their caps and some carrying cameras; 46 out of 68 of the construction workers did not show up for work the next morning!!!!!!!!….Â and haven’t come back yet!!!!! It has been ten days.Â
Now the General Contractor, I understand is madder than hell, but can’t say anything publicly, because he could be busted for hiring “illegal aliens”.Â Wallace and his bunch can’t be accused of impersonating INS folks, because they have it on their home owner association records the vote to form the new committee within their association, plus they informed the INS about what they were doing in advance, and the INS said basically according to Wallace…………..”Have at it”!
Since I recently had to pick up trash left by nearbyÂ Hispanic workers, I could identify with the frustration of the real or imagined homeowners.
Hat tip to RC for a little levity amidst all the uproar about illegal immigrants.
Vinnie at My Vast Right Wing Conspiracy also has an idea for solving the illegal immigration problem.
