The only Americans who seem to feel comfortable with liberal illegal immigration policies are those who are either already well-off or those who benefit directly from this massive source of cheap human labor.

Having lived and worked in only two counties, Los Angeles and San Diego, I've experienced how the majority of rank-and-file working citizens in these areas have been ripped off, by our plutocratic oligarchy and its self-serving illegal immigration agenda.

Someone once told me immigrants eat in local restaurants, shop at local stores, and live in local places that actually helps the economy.


And they usually drive to those places so they use gas right?
People want to scream they don't pay taxes, and while not all pay income, like out fortune 500 buddies, they still play plenty of tax along the way
Live in home they they pay rent at, buy groceries so they can eat etc etc.

every job while college grads go unemployed for YEARS while looking for work.

So they are taking the jobs that require a college degree?
I find it VERY hard to believe that jobs that require a college degree are getting stolen from those that went to school for it by the undocumented workers

What? What does this have to do with undocumented workers...that's a side conversation that shouldn't even be going on. Read the OP. It is all immigrants, legal or otherwise.

The thing I find funny about the immigration issue, legal or not, is how some try to play it off as if one sides wants them for votes and the other side wants them for cheap labor.

Votes for what? Obama was put in place by the same Bankers and Big Corporations that profit off the cheap labor as well.
Both "sides" are the same.

The illegals at least need to GO and the foreign trade pacts that benefit only a few at the expense to everyone else need to be stopped as well.

We can't get the Big Corporations and Banks out of our government (Freedom of speech lol) but we can sure rally around candidates not backed by Big Money. Otherwise, it is going to be a continuation of the same BushObama Agenda.

Nobody wants to do these jobs because it's back breaking labor and it doesn't pay a living wage. I'm sure there are people who will argue that if illegal immigrants weren't doing it, farmers would be forced to pay more. We subsidize the sh#t out of farming and even with that and the labor from illegal immigrants, it's nearly impossible to keep up with the price of produce from South and Central American countries.

But hey, if you think that the average American is dying to pick produce for less than minimum wage, I'm sure there's plenty of farmers who will welcome you.


The solution is simple. Get rid of the illegal immigrants and disastrous foreign economic policies and you kill 2 birds with one stone. Place tariffs on any goods coming into the US from wherever the Multinational Corporations will run to. Let them sell their widgets to those making a dollar a day.

The farmers will have to pay more to attract American Labor in accordance with market principles and the prices would go up some as well, but you would also have more jobs available when you put the Chinese Crap to bed.

The only ones benefiting from this Globalist Utopia are the investor, management classes and politicians.

Those college degree jobs are not being taken by illegal immigrants but by H-1B visa's and while many American College Degreed Individuals are unemployed, Corporations are complaining there are not enough H-1B and lobby government for more of them.

The usual retort is that the unemployed college degree holders should have sought a better degree over basket weaving.
I have friends in and relatives in programming employed and unemployed and the field is getting saturated with immigrants that will do the work cheaper.

Toche with this one point, seems rather rampant in the medical industry.
I did fail to take that into account tho when I replied, got ahead of my self I guess.

But your problem is with the copmanies that hire them, not the people.
Why blame the man/woman taking the offer that is offered to them?

Not only are innocents being USED and subjected to poverty, they're also being BLAMED for the problem by the same masters that perpetuate and flourish on their poverty.


The TRUTH is as follows;


Blame the corporations for putting money first.

Our situation is actually viewed as the best thing that can happen in the eyes of the winners at our economy, somehow it's come to a point when our corporate masters have us begging, promising to accept work contracts for lower wages than the next guy in order to get hired. It's checkmate.

The punchline (although not funny) is that THIS is the desired result. The rich are safe and those who subscribe to cash and NOT ownership cannot escape the inflation forced from minimum wage increases. It's essentially a reset button along with the allowed flood of illegal immigrants in order to ensure that no one else makes it to the mile high club.

With value preserved in equity the damage caused by minimum wages hikes are escaped by our masters. Those who work and serve will continue to work and serve forever when the costs of inflation destroy their savings and the living wage forever dangles out of arms reach.

This is capitalistic flavored socialism working, and you all support it and want to spread it. Do you not all see how brainwashed you truly are?

The un-documented workers also went to college. They get the discounted rate of in-state tuition to help fund them as well.
