    Read Ofelia’s comment…She says that they came to AMERICA to work hard and pay taxes. She forgot to mention that they also came to increase the prison population, flood this nation with 50 times more drugs than the USA had ten years ago, organize gangs and political corruption, etc., etc., etc.

    Museums, memorials and No accessible or affordable housing and poor if any real advocacy for disability needs. Many of us disabled including us vets are losing housing, not gaining it. as long as agencies require an evict before assist and legal won’ advocate for disabled needs in housing many of us have not a prayer.. While many whine about welfare babies note how many shelters and resources require them to get you any help.

    • James Weaver

      I feel you. Veterans should be able to get any and all the assistance that the US has available, especially after what they’ve done for this country.

  • Oh come on now Mr Weaver, Mike Harrah is a white guy & one of the biggest developers in the county usually gets what he wants from Santa Ana. (Sarc)

    • James Weaver

      That’s good for Mr. Harrah. I wish I could go to work for him. Maybe then I could afford some of the finer things in life for my son and I.

      • Notice the (Sarc) that means sarcasm intended. I doubt you would ever work for Harrah, at least not in restaurants. I have not been in his place in years, but I know he used to have many illegals working there. I used to Laugh when I saw republicans having get togethers there especially when they brought in Joe Arpaio.

    Do the vet groups donate any money to the Supervisors campaign treasure chests?

    Maybe that’s the problem.

    • James Weaver

      That could be a problem….Except that REPRESENTING THE USA in military service shouldn’t have to be underrepresented domestically, so that illegals may benefit from the very FREEDOMS our VETERANS fought for. Why should veteran groups have to contribute financially…The LaRaza, EMME (Mexican Mafia), etc. contribute to infiltrate a system that works better than their own, only to DESTROY the fabric of American history, which built this country.

        Some say that the Syrian refugees coming into the country are treated better and provided with more resources than our homeless vets.

        If that’s true it’s disgraceful.

        • As I remember the Vietnamese refugees in ±1974 were treated better than returning veterans. (Many still are).

      • dc matthews

        More hate ain’t gonna fix the problems; demanding the agencies and local legal start representing us all more equally is what is needed. Hispanics have developed some good advocacy after a long history of lots of discriminations in OC. The disability community (besides dev delayed), disabled vets, and blacks have not.

        • LFOldTimer

          Mr. Weaver makes good points.

          America should take care of it’s own citizens and especially our veterans before it takes care of those who are in the country illegally.

          I don’t know how any good American could disagree with that position.
