Unemployed Immigrants Move into Caves

El Diario/La Prensa, Posted: Jan 23, 2009

PLAINFIELD, N.J. - Dozens of unemployed Central American immigrants who lost their jobs and can't afford to pay rent have moved into caves, reports El Diario/La Prensa. Immigrants have been living in the makeshift homes in Plainfield and North Plainfeld, N.J. for three months, and call their new residence the Devils Cave. Their decision to move into caves is a testament to the harsh climate of the current economic crisis, which has had a greater impact on the undocumented who have more difficulty accessing government aid after losing their jobs.

may all you hateful and smallminded human beings be reborn to parents with as tiny a capacity for empathy.

the pain will do you good. we need some before we can know compassion, i think.


Who the H@ll do you think you are, God? The last time I looked the job was taken. You better hope and pray that the curse that you just threw out doesn't come back to you seven fold.

This is just the begining, before you know it we will be everywhere and the people who came here before us will be moving back to where their ansester came from. Don't you see we are all human beings, we are all from the same place. this earth was given to all of us by GOD. and a few burocrats who want to cover the sun with one finger can not stop GOD's power. El que rie al untimo rie mejor. Viva la Raza!!!!


I agree. We are all human beings. But I want the human beings that come here from other countries to pay for their own medical expenses, pay for their children education and not be a financial burden to this country. Most illegal immigrants don't fit that bill. Do I sound heartless. No, I am not. It cost a lot to live in the U.S. I work hard for my money and the money I own shoud be used on my family. Money doesn't grow on trees. When it does, please let all of know.

This is TOTAL LOAD OF CRAP!!

I LIVE NEAR PLAINFIELD and there is no such thing like people living in caves. In fact Plainfiel is a city run by black people who will give stiff fines to whoever do alterations to their homes.

What citizens across the nation do not get is the news from border counties. Heck, we only know most goings on from chatting with each other about the illegals camping in ranchers out buildings, barns and under the bushes. Illegals running and hiding from Border Patrol agents do not respect private property. Illegals cut fences, have killed dogs for barking, steal vehicles, wake up rural border residents in the middle of the night to demand rides, food, clothing, etc. For many years we read reports of what was called crash and run Illegals would smash in a kitchen door in the middle of the night, grab food and be gone before the home owners knew what was going on.

Folks that enjoy hiking on state lands and National Parks almost always run into groups of illegals and often drug runners. If we don't see the groups, we sure can't miss their trash strewn all over the desert.
Human smugglers are hired to do just that, smuggle. What happens on the border does not stay on the border. The illegals will show little to no respect to anyone no matter how far they have made from the border.

Demand that our borders be secure, demand that every illegal alien be deported.

I guess we \'ve all forgotten that this is history recicling itself. No one is the owner of this earth. Even those who claim to be Legal Aliens, yes you who think you own this place. It is not even yours and it will never be, it is always going to be the place for the people who lives by the golden rule, \"that who has the most gold makes all the rules\". This land does not belong to the poor or the the middle class with a computer to express the oinion he has,it belongs to the rich, not you my fello friends. When you say I am an American, the only thing you are doing is taking responsibility for all the bad the burocrats from this country do to the rest of the world. That is why we are hated around the world. Get up dust off and follow the change. We can all be friends we can all care about each other regardless of the color and the culture, ETC. The fight is not among us, the fight is against the Rich.

View desertvisions dot us to see the destruction illegal aliens have been causing in the Arizona desert. It has been going on for over 10 years. The illegals hire human and drug smugglers to sneak them to your town. The entire country will reap what the border residents have been witnessing and begging the country to help us demand the borders are secured. The "Bush People" have taken American jobs, secured loans that they will not repay, and trashed our once beautiful desert on their way illegally to your town.

How about giving them food and a FREE ticket back to where they came from. I'm sick and tired of reading SOB stories about ILLEGAL ALIENS. We the people have our own problems and a lot of them are caused by illegal aliens

Attention real estate agents, we have a large number of clean recently vacated caves here in this area, some with up to 3 chambers for extended families. Low rent, good buying opprotunities for the right families, we accept Maticular Consuler cards, no SSN needed to buy. Good schools are close by.

Immigration should remove these indivduals living unlawfully in the U.S. They are endangering the public by living in this manner.

Sara - you beat me to it. ICE - RAID THE CAVES.


Sara on Jan 25, 2009 at 18:06:53 said:

Oh man! Like we don't have enough problems trying to hold up our own citizens who are unemployed! I'll bet these guys are picking up all their trash and not pooping in the streams outside their caves.

Ice now knows where they are. Join me in filing a complaint.


Rick Les on Jan 25, 2009 at 14:54:11 said:

So let me get this straight - they would rather live in a cave in America than return to where the frack they are from? I'll pay bus fair for anyone that leaves.

Awwww!!! Boo frickin' hoo!

VAMOS!!! GO. LEAVE. GET OUT. And learn to keep your pants on, Hay-zuz. Don't breed 'em if ya can't feed 'em.

Ok, now we know the invaders are there. I hope the police will soon arrest and deport these parasites. In case the "undocumented" haven't gotten the message yet, "GO HOME."


Rob on Jan 24, 2009 at 21:37:33 said:

The US continues the slide from "first world" to "third world". At the rate things are going, caves will soon be in demand. Not to mention underpasses, culverts, lean-tos, abandoned cars, and tents.

I think it was Reagan who used to say that a rising tide lifts all boats. Indeed. Likewise, a falling tide lowers all boats.

It's harsh but these people need to rely on their own countries. The US simply cannot provide a living to every one on earth. The US has no shortage of home-grown poor who really don't need an endless stream of third-world poor added to their list of troubles.

Given the fact that the US Chamber of Commerce and Business Roundtable, as well as the US Congress, courtesy of Barney Frank (the representative who helped bring about the mortgage crisis by helping his former lover, who worked for Freddie Mac, avoid regulation of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac), have given hundreds of millions of dollars to La Raza, Maldef and LULAC, why don't those organizations pay for airfare or bus tickets back to the illegals homelands?

There will be no more welfare, and other subsidies for the illegals, they've destroyed our economy and even democrats like myself have NO sympathy for them. They have helped the corporate world displace poor Americans from the workplace, and as such have earned the suffering they didn't mind imposing on others.

Why don't they move into the nearest de luxe Mexican Consulate?
