Home Depot Allowing Invaders To Live On Property

To whom it may concern:

I am a resident of Del Mar, California and from time to time, shop at your store located on El Camino Boulevard, in Encinitas, California.

On Saturday, June 8, 2006, I visited this store location and was absolutely appalled at conditions around the perimeter of this store — from the parking lot, to the sidewalk and surrounding bushes.

I do not know the number of men who - daily - frequent the store parking lot at this particular day labor site. They use this location as a ‘hiring’ site - which, in itself, is not a legal act. Hiring ‘illegals’ is against the law and the ‘employer’ can be fined a considerable sum of money.

However, this is NOT my grievance. My complaint is that Home Depot is permitting these men to live in the bushes surrounding this location. There is NO running water - and NO TOILET facilities. They urinate and defacate everywhere - the stench is deplorable. They hang garbage and trash bags on the fence bordering the location - and worse, expectorate EVERYWHERE. The manager of the store should be aware that Tuberculosis is an air-bourne disease. These men are not educated to our health rules and regulations, and perhaps are not aware that public expectoration is not permitted in our cities. BUT — we, the public, have no information as to the health condition of any of these people - and therefore, are definitely at risk. Cholera is another deadly disease easily transmissible to any group of human beings living in deplorable, unsanitary conditions. THIS IS the condition at this store location.

I have reported this to our Health authorities as well as to Corporate officers. It should be dealt with AT ONCE at corporate level and local level. The surrounding brush cleared and the garbage bags removed from the fence; and the filth bulldozed out of existence in the camp sites, before an epidemic occurs amongst the population!

Until I receive personal notice that action to rid the community of this deplorable situation is immediately taken care, I will cease to shop at ANY Home Depot.

Trusting that corporate measures WILL be immediately put in force, I remain

Very truly yours,

Dayna

    This thing with Home Depot has gone far enough! Isn’t there something else I can do besides not shopping there?!

  2. Eddie B. Says:

    Gag me with a taco. Please tell me they aren’t selling tents at a deep discount. Enough is enough. Not another friggin’ penny goes to Home Depot. Not a single cent.

  3. Educated American Says:

    That is just plain GROSS!

    I was driving around town recently on a day off from teaching. I passed a Home Depot and there were dozens of these guys waiting around. It was so absurd, I just started laughing!

  4. Ed Says:

    well I’am not going to shop there either.to proud 2bamerican yes there is something else we can do.ask every one that reads the post on this site to email the home depot in their town & inform them we will no longer shop at their stores.

  5. johnny Says:

    I quite shopping there a long time ago !!!

  6. Roxan Tiscareno Says:

    I refuse to shop at Home Depot as well. As a matter of fact, I haven’t been there in years.

  7. David M. Says:

    I know someone who works at a Home Depot and at their orientation, they were given a book. This book is a translation book. If a customer comes up to you and speaks only Spanish, you break out the book and try to help them. When I hear that, it just blew my mind.

    The above post, now, does not surprise me one bit.

  8. Sherri Says:

    Disgusting! And I suppose these are more people just wanting to make a better life for themselves? What about everyone else that has to deal with the mess they bring? And where is the Health Department? They should be out there, en masse, citing Home Depot and these illegals for health code voilations.

  9. johnny Says:

    Its just like the AIDS Disease, instead of of telling people to stop having sex at all costs these liberal organizations are actually endorsing sex. Media such as MTV are teaching youths that the gay life style is ok and needs to be excepted, MTV is also teaching our kids to have safe sex instead of waiting until they get married to have sex. The schools are teaching our children to use condoms instead of preaching abstenence from sex.
    Its a fucked up world!
    We must weed out the cancerous liberals who are fighting to sociolize America! November Baby!

    I don’t shop at Home Depot…Thank God we have someone else to choose from around here we shop at Lowe’s….We have a brand new Home Depot here, but when I found out their company hires and supports illegals I want shop there……….

  11. Jimmy Says:

    The only way to stop this is: suddenly change the race of these transients.
    If they were of Euro-descent, the problem would be 1st page news, and dealt with with a heavy hand. It would be harsh.
    It would be stopped immediately.

    Heavy law for us, no law for them.

    Upside down world……….

    Home Depot: Friend to illegal aliens and no friend of its customers, and regular employees

    -Home Depot loves illegal aliens.

    - Home Depot prefers to hire Hispanics in their stores. They entered into a preferential hiring program with none other than La Raza:
    National Council of La Raza/ The Home Depot National Hiring Partnership

    Overview

    NCLR has partnered with The Home Depot National Hiring Partnership to link qualified candidates with open positions in The Home Depot stores. On a local level, The Home Depot Store Human Resource Managers (HRMs) and NCLR affiliate organizations are working closely together to match qualified candidates with specific hiring needs.

    For more than two decades, NCLR has been involved in workforce development activities at both the local and national levels to develop the Latino community?s ability to connect and share in the nation?s economic opportunities. NCLR works to identify and resolve the major barriers for both Latino job seekers and private-sector employers. These barriers include technology, education, language, and skills on the job seekers side and recruitment and retention on the employer?s side. This demand-driven and partnership-based approach targets training and employment opportunities in growing regional industries, fulfilling the needs of employers and of Latino families.

    The Home Depot is the world’s largest home improvement retailer and second largest retailer in the United States. Founded in 1978 in Atlanta, Georgia The Home Depot currently operates in 50 U.S. states and in the District of Columbia, 10 Canadian provinces, and Mexico. In 1998, Home Depot opened stores in Puerto Rico and recently opened two sourcing offices in China.

    NCLR/The Home Depot National Hiring Partnership Facts:

    Launch: On February 14, 2005, The Home Depot announced the formation of a new National Hiring Partnership with four of the country’s leading national Hispanic organizations, The ASPIRA Association, Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU), National Council of La Raza (NCLR), and SER ? Jobs for Progress National.

    Key Goals: To create a pipeline of qualified candidates through the National Council of La Raza affiliate network in order to meet both the short and long-term hiring needs of The Home Depot stores.

    Number of Affiliates: 40 NCLR affiliates in California, Arizona, and Illinois were invited to participate in the initial phase of the partnership. The number of participating affiliates is expected to increase over time.

    NCLR Key Contacts:

    Simon Lopez, slopez@nclr.org
    NCLR Sr. Workforce Development Specialist, Midwest region
    National Council of La Raza
    203 N. Wabash Ave., Suite 918

    Watchdog, maybe we should all apply for work at Home Depot, some of us mention that we belong to “La Raza” and some not. Let’s see who gets the job.

  13. Juan Says:

    Let the voices be heard by the nation. Let us protest against the employers for their illegal practice and their implicit destruction of our labor laws. Let us protest Home Depot, and their affiliate organizations and foundations, let us protest the Ford Fundation. Let us protest against all the employers who hire illegal aliens and you have failed to pay payroll taxes, social secuirty taxes, workers compensation insurance. Let them hear our voices in the streets and in the halls of our governments.

  14. Sarah Says:

    We need to put this on the interenet for a call to action. People all over this country need to post this letter at HomeDepots everywhere. Only then will Home Depot do something about it. Having people in just one location and just one store hollering is not enough.

    On another note, I just heard our great pres. speak in Iraq. He was going on and on about the freedoms that the Iraqis will now have. And that their government will mirror the will of their people. If only the Iraqis knew that we don’t have all of that here. I am just sick to my stomach.

  15. Jimmy Says:

    Sarah, when it was first elected, I had high hopes for this person.
    But from his inaguration parade, (with the sombrero float), onwards it has been all a disappointment. I’ll just be glad when he’s gone out of office.

    I won’t vote for an evil democrat, and what the repubs put up, no doubt will be another loser.
    I guess the new world order freaks have us just where they want us. Under their thumbs.

    Gag me with another taco……….

  16. Sarah Says:

    Hey Jimmy I am with you. We don’t have either party who is not in this New World Order. Senior Bush, Bill Clinton, and now Mexican George are all in on it. Many congress people, too. I can’t believe that they all thought that this would be easy to pull off. They are trying to ruin the US so we won’t have power to stop it. I just ordered the book 2020 from the internet. It just came it. It’s about how the entire world will follow Agenda 21 of the United Nations which means 1 (I repeat 1) world power in 2020. For us, bush wants us merged with Canada and Mexico on January 1, 2010. I used to bash conspiracy theorist but now I see that they were all right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. John J Says:

    Johnny you are right about the liberals! Get rid of them! Interesting about 2020, Sarah. Good stuff. I wouldn’t mind getting that book. That Agenda 21 sounds like some real bullshit designed to ruin us.

  18. Harold Dillon Says:

    LA RAZA FOR SHORT NCLR IS JUST ONE OF MANY FRONTS FOR COMPANIES LIKE HOME DEPOT, WAL-MART AND OTHER VIOLATERS OF THE IMMIGRATION ACT. THESE FRONTS TO COVER THEIR ASSES. IF ILLEGALS ARE FOUND ON THEIR PROPERTY, THEY IMMEDIATELY BLAME THE CONTRACTOR WHO HIRE THEM. OUR GOVERNMENT KNOW THIS AND THEY ARE DOING NOTHING ABOUT. SO THE PROPAGANDA THAT THIS IDIOT.

    ORGANIZATIONS LIKE LA RAZA AND OTHERS HAVE BEEN ACCUSED OF
    ACTUAL SCHEDULE ILLEGALS INTO THE COUNTRY TO SERVICE THESE
    COMPANIES. ONE OF THE OTHER DRAWBACKS IS THAT WHEN THE
    ILLEGAL SHOWS UP FOR WORK AND THERE IS NOTHING AVAILABLE FOR
    HIM/HER, THEY STAND OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING AND HARASS COMPANIES AND INDIVIDUALS TO THE POINT OF THREATENING THEM IF
    THEY ARE NOT HIRED.

    WE ALL KNOW WHY COMPANIES LIKE HOME DEPOT AND WAL-MARK HIRES ILLEGALS. NO ONE CAN CONVINCE ME THAT AN AMERICAN WORKER CAN’T PERFORM THE JOB THAT THE ILLEGAL IS DOING. LA RAZA TALKS ABOUT TRAINING, AND THE SUBJECT AREAS THAT ILLEGALS ARE BEING TRAINED IN. WHEN ONE LOOKS AT THESE SUBJECTS, IT WOULD TAKE A HELL OF LOT MORE EDUCATION THAN THE MESTIZOS BRING WITH THEM. SO REGARDLESS OF THE LIES OF LA RAZA, ITS ALL ABOUT CHEAP LABOR. THE PROBLEM WITH ALL OF THIS IS THAT AS INDIVIDUALS
    WE CAN’T DO MUCH ABOUT IT. WE NEED AN ORGANIZER, ONE WHO
    IS DEDICATED TO THE FACT THAT AMERICA BELONGS TO AMERICANS.
    SOMEONE WHO WILL PICKET AND BE JUST AS EFFECTIVE AS THE ILLEGALS. HOWEVER, HE/SHE MUST BE HONEST AND TRUSTWORTHY,
    UNLIKE MANY OF THOSE IN THE EXECUTIVE AND LEGISLATIVE BRANCHES IN WASHINGTON.
