The illegals are responsible for the mortgage mess? Were Morgan Stanley and the rest duped by Framingham's illegal immigrants too? How about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? Seems like it's a big conspiracy you've uncovered! Sudbury recently tried to pass an override to maintain school services. They don't have a lot of illegal immigrants do they? There are lots of problems contributing to financial difficulties in lots of communities all around us. They've been listed, but you've ignored them. In your more lucid moments, do you ever think you're a little hung up on this whole illegal immigation issue?

Jim Rizoli CCFIILE.COM Judy.. Read my lips "The illegals were responsible for this mortgage mess"! The signing them up was the first stop for the problem. Once that all happened and the loans were sold etc with the big name players later their share in the scam was done, and the mortgage companies and the banks were left holding the bag. What I'm telling you no one wants to admit...can you blame them? This was a whole worldwide "conspiracy' to defraud the public and no one wants to take the blame. Any way you slice it the illegals were the first ones involved. This is why they came here in the first place in the numbers that they did. The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, or they thought. Buy a house with NO money down, no income and your good to go. This is what happened with them, and the rest is history. I hope this clears it up for you.

Great. An article from 2008, in a rag tabloid, by a notorious conservative talking head. Identifying counties with large hispanic populations with lots of foreclosures doesn't prove anything. It's like blaming inner city neighborhoods for the recession because there's high unemployment. What you need to make your argument is a reputable, verifiable source saying "x% of defaulted mortgages were made to illegal aliens". Otherwise it's pure conjecture. And even if that were true, it would be the lending agencies' fault. Why did they make loans to high risk borrowers, regardless of immigration status? The lenders were the problem. They made bad loans for short term profit. And very few, or none, or the lenders were illegal aliens. You're guessing that many of the defaulted mortgages were made to illegal aliens. My guess is that number is around 2-5%. Until you prove otherwise, it's pure conjecture - Just a little guy with a big mouth spouting off.

Jim Rizoli CCFIILE.COM Gregory......Michelle Malkin is a reputable writer, sorry you don't care for her. Rag tabloid?? News is news wherever paper it appears in. This paper more likely borrowed the story from her website, or another website.. In regards to "reputable" I've been logging the foreclosures from the local paper over the past few years, 60-70% were Brazilian names, what can I say... No one is bringing this up because mortgage brokers, and bank people were part of this scam. If you were one of them I don't think you would want to be exposed as a cheat would you? "Little guy with big mouth" LOL....Thanks for the insult.....I just deal with facts and leave the name calling to people like you that have no "facts". When I present information my facts are right on just look at my website.... No one will ever take me on because my "facts" are not disputable if your looking for truth. I spend a lot of time researching things, making videos etc.. while guys like you are working....It's a great life I have, you should try it sometime. Make sure you watch my next Weekly Show on Saturday night 9pm, more indisputable facts about controversial subjects that no one else will touch. It's all about free speech....even in a town that does it's best to stopping it. Remember Saturday night 9pm Weekly Show # 118
