Drive by all of these sites and you will see our tax dollars being spent to pay the Hispanic population. Every day I drive by the Casteel Road project and no less than 9 Hispanics and up to 12 on a good day. Thanks for keeping the illegals employed! That is the good ole American way now thanks to Goreham and Lee!
