There are many who would be willing to whork any job for $15.00 an hour. My daughter and her husband just accepted a job here in Arkansas at a farm for $8.00 an hour and 60 hour per week. So don't just assume locals won't take the jobs that illegals are doing. If it is a fair wage I am certain there would be legal people who would take it.

Yes but not only must they pay legals the 15 an hour, but also workers comp, benefits, etc. All the red tape and extra costs for hiring legal Americans. Don't forget, if an illegal gets hurt because of faulty equipment or unsafe conditions, you don't have to worry about them suing, since they don't want you sending INS after them.

I remember the days when the niggers did these jobs! An illegal gets better health care than most people for free.

94109, it is true employers don't have to pay the extras with illegals but they and we pay in higher health care costs because the illegals get treated in ERs and don't pay. They consume much more in resources then they provide in "cheap" labor. They are not worth the problems. They need to be shipped back to where they came from.

Try this in any other country.. "I've seen pictures of your country and it looks great. I think I'd like to live here! Oh, and by the way, would you mind changing all your government and business phone messages, street signs and ballots into my native language? Thanks!"

Golly, 238240, have you not travelled? Pretty much most of the world speaks English already.

This debate really touches on another topic that no one is mentioning: What ever happened to the idea that people could eventually start working less, and having more time for family and society?

The IWW once campaigned for "4 hour days/4 day weeks" ... with no reduction in pay.

Why should corporate America require more and more people to work 60 and 70 hour weeks for shite wages? Hiring "illegals" because they can be abused more? Building crap houses that leak and rot? WTF?

Back in the 70's (iirc) the big concern was what would people do with all their leisure time. They thought that they would need to train people in how to spend all their spare time. And that a new type of job would be created, for professionals to help people deal with this.

What happened to that? We are working longer than ever!

I believe the polls run which support the illegals were done in areas of the country who have very few illegals. They shold try polling in Texas and surrounding states to see how those people feel about them.

I have also noticed that the illegals try to speak english but the chicanos born here pretend they can't speak english. Try an experiment I did at the local fleamarket. Find a group who say the don't speak english and after they walk by say "you dropped your wallet." then you will see how many of them turn and look down. Everytime I did it they all looked down then laughed about being caught.

Okay I don't doubt that they pretend not to speak it -- but why ? I can't guess at the motive. What's it saving?
