Looking around my area, I see many many Latinos who did not live here a few years ago. I am firmly convinced that a large proportion of them are not
legal immigrants. I have seen none employed as migrant farm workers.
When I see them working, generally the entire crew is comrised of people who appear to be Latino or Chicano. My own observation has been that they
are predominantly employed on road crews, housing construction and housekeeping.
I know several contractors who have lost bids to others who employ illegal immigrants. I've heard complaints that these crews tend to "throw the
houses together" at an alarming rate, and that inferior building materials are often used by them.
These are just generalizations based upon my own observations, but it leads me to conclude that many well-paying jobs are being taken by illegal
immigrants. This defeats the argument that we should let them come on in and take the "low wage jobs that Americans won't have".
I am very disturbed by reading of how the Naco office has told their agents to stand down. It's even more disturbing to read that Border Patrol
Chief David Aguilar has attempted to discredit all of those agents who have spoken out anonymously about this as liars.
It is glaringly obvious at this point that there must be some sort of conspiracy to allow full scale immigration from Mexico. Since so many other
American jobs have been outsourced or otherwise shipped overseas, this leads to a very bleak outlook for the American economy as a whole.
I feel the wind of change blowing through our nation, and it chills me to the bone.
