VA group enabling those who hire illegal aliens

A common sight in Virginia Beach (sanctuary city)
APLast weekend, the Virginia Horticultural Foundation held a workshop geared towards owners of landscape companies entitled “Spanish for the Green Industry.” During the seminar held in Virginia Beach, instructors led their classes in basic Spanish lessons as well as Latin American culture.

VHF education coordinator, Dawn Alleman told the Virginian-Pilot they began offering the course four years ago because the workforce for the landscaping industry is dominated by those who speak only Spanish.

Alleman said: “If you want to be a foreman in those types of places, you’ve got to have a decent grasp of Spanish.”

One of the attendees, Tom Ritter, owner of Ritter Grounds Maintenance in Norfolk, VA, took the class so that he might be able to speak to his workers for the first time in ten years without the help of a translator.

Ritter said: “I just want to be able to communicate with them on a day-to-day basis.”

Course instructor, Yolima Carr, passed out a book she has written to the class which contains English-to-Spanish phrases which might be helpful to landscapers, such as: “Take out the weeds in the flower bed, edge the bed, then blow the leaves and the clippings.”

She reminded the business owners that the ‘immigrants’ working for them are from their homes and families, and that because of their Catholic beliefs, may need certain days off.

Carr, who is the gardens curator at the Hermitage Museum in Norfolk, suggested that the workers be allowed to play Mexican music, and should be complimented on their work (“Hiciste un buen trabajo”).

Attendees paid $ 160 each for the five hour class.

This is yet one more example of those who fail to see the need to hire U.S. citizens, when an illegal alien will do it for less. That philosophy may go a long way in lining the pockets of unscrupulous employers, but in a time when so many Americans have been laid off, it is just shy of treason.

By the way, the group offering the class, the Virginia Horticultural Foundation, operates as a non-profit and as such enjoys tax-exempt status. The class was given at the Founder’s Inn, Christian Broadcasting Network founder Pat Robertson’s hotel and resort.
PLEASE! EVERYONE! Report “norskeyenta2” aka “Mando” or whatever he changes his name to! His RACIAL SLURS are insulting to ALL!

Best colleges for these majors/minors in Virginia?

Question by PrettyKitty: Best colleges for these majors/minors in Virginia?
I want to major in law enforcement to become a police officer and later detective, CSI, or anything in that field. I looked at VMI, but they don’t major in law enforcement. I though it’d be good to go to a military school like VMI, but once again, they don’t have a law enforcement major or minor. Can you recommend any colleges in Virginia that have a good Law Enforcement major?

Best answer:

Answer by Kristin
Most state universities and colleges will have law enforcement majors. These majors might be called different names by individual schools. Some common names for these programs are criminal justice, criminology, and justice studies. I have given you a link to all of the public schools in Virginia. If you click on the word degree a list of the degrees each school offers will pop up. This site also gives you a link to the school’s web site so that you can see what each school has to offer. You should pick 3 or 4 of these schools and go visit them. Most schools will give you the option to speak with a representative from the department you are interested in if you make reservations 3 to 4 weeks in advance. I think it would be beneficial for you to go to a public state school, because the state is in charge of their own security so they have a vested interest in keeping their schools up to date with the latest statistics, information, and technology. Not to mention that a public school will charge far less tuition. Also I believe state universities and colleges are able to give the best internships because of their size and their relationships with the surrounding communities. I hope this helps. Good luck! I hope you achieve your goal of becoming a police officer. We sure need more good cops on the streets!

This sign appears fairly often along Virginia Beach’s main drag. I guess the tourists can be a little rowdy at times.

Anyway, I’ve tried to get to you all, and I’ve failed miserably. Truth is, I’m working tonight through the weekend, and I’ve got to pull the garden together next week. I’m afraid it will be catch-as-catch can until at least Wednesday.

I just have to get through the next few weeks, and all will be well (I think)

Thanks for your patience. You’re great people.

Most of them have decent “Film Appreciation” courses, but none have a FiIm Studies degree that leads to anything except unemployment, high debt, and a life of involuntary dumpster-diving for half-eaten hamburgers…
