Some sob story. She’s stealing $20 to $25 thousand a year from the city’s recycling profit. When she gets hurt from stealing, she goes to the ER for free medical service. Boo-frickity-hoo
Shes been here for 13 years and can’t speach english?
Wonder why she can’t find a job?
She's here illegally...pays $2300 per month for rent...doesn't say how much money she makes and expects someone else to pay it.
She must be a DemocRAT!
“nowadays, more companies are asking for immigration papers, papers she doesn’t have.”
She’s looking for work in the wrong damn country. I’ve had it with these whiney liberals attempting to invoke sympathy for the “plight” of “undocumented workers”.
She’s got a rent payment of $2,300 a month? How on earth has her illegal family been sustaining that, pray tell?
Has uncle Juan back home in Mexico been paying it, or have they been sucking dollars out of our tax base and taking jobs away from American citizens?
Never mind. I think we know that answer.
Thank God the LA Times is about to go under. They promote the sell-out of our country at the most fundamental levels, and then wonder why the circulation is continuously falling. Morons...
If they think they’re pulling the majority’s heartstrings with this treasonous piece of clap-trap, they’re as out of their ever lovin minds as we’ve suspected.
Bold emphasis mine.
For obvious reasons.
And I'm surprised that the libtard wannabe journalist that penned this tripe would include that in the story.
Uhh...$2300 a month for rent? Cable and phone? 3 men working? Cryng a freakin’ river! Get the F out of my country!
Her rent is more than I net in a month and she’s fracking COMPLAINING? GO BACK TO MEXICO DUMBASS.
Nothing pissed me off more, while living in Los Angeles, than scavengers going through the dumpsters and recycle bins at all hours of the night. They make so much noise going through it all then make even more noise dragging it off. I quit recycling a few weeks ago because the recycle pickup guys started leaving me notes that everything that I always recycled in the past are “not recyclable items” - plastic water bottles, etc. Now everything just goes in the trash.
A non citizen here illegally down and out in Pasadena.
I'm trying to feel something but it just not happening.
Nope, not happening.
How do you say “Move to someplace cheaper, dumbass” in Spanish?
I'll go with "dumpster diver".
She has looked for more stable jobs, including cleaning offices at night. But nowadays, more companies are asking for immigration papers, papers she doesn't have.
Ah, well.. that "criminal status" might be a problem.
Her husband and four children are depending on her.
And what exactly is dear hubby doing?
They must be very rich to afford four children.
Today's feel good news story. Plus it's warmer in Mexico and she won't have to suffer those horrible Pasadena winters.
A rented house in Pasadena that costs $2300 a month?
Isn’t there a house for rent in Pacoima that costs less than that?????
Who cleared her and her husband for renting that kind of house???
Not a sob story as far as I am concerned.
She and her family-—IF they are legally here-— have alot of other choices in other parts of Los Angeles.
Dumpster Diving is typical here in L.A. with maybe 10 people going thru my trash on trash day. They are not just after bottles, they are after your I.D. Ive resorted to burning my mail but now burning my fireplace is illegal.
The following link is a funny and blunt critique on the LA Times article:
Many of the points made by people here are talked about.
