Lettuce and strawberries would rot in the fields. Dirty dishes would pile up in restaurants. Thousands of farmers and builders would go bust. Predator aircraft drones would prowl the Mexican border. And chunks of Los Angeles and Houston would look like ghost towns.
The biggest losers would be middle-class families with two working parents, living in high-immigrant states such as California, Texas, Florida or New York. Why? They would pay more for food, housing, entertainment and child care as a shortage of low-skilled workers drove up some wages, and therefore, some prices.

The trouble with the illegals over here in the UK is that the vast number are law abiding and what to contribute to the economy. The rest just want to come and sponge off the state, The ones that want to work should be made legal and the freeloaders sent packing.
Besides if we kicked out all the illegals who would do the mundane work. certainly not the lazy brits who sit infront of the tele all day while the rest of us have to work to support them, I also think ALL spongers should be kicked out of the country , the illegals sent back to their own coutries and the sponging lazy good fernuthin brits dumped in the channel. or at least what we should do with our own countrymen is bring back national service like in the 50's and make them join the army...
You watch too much Jeremy Kyle and Trisha mate another goose stepper.

Totally agreed DataWraith! I hate it when Brits complain 'they're taking our jobs!' when if half the country got up off their lazy butts and actually got a job, there'd probably be none left for them to take!
There's plenty of British-born dole-scroungers living off the state not bothering getting up off their butts to get a job. I say if you wanna get rid of the scroungers, lets get rid of them all and not be biased about it! I regret paying the benefits of the guy next door with 10 kids, who is perfectly fit for work, but never bothers cause he's claiming £25,000 a year as much as I do any immigrant's.
I've come across people that haven't bothered working for 5-7 years and just lived on benefits, not because they can't work, but just because they can't be bothered and know how to play the system.

I think you generalise Datawrath and you sound like someone who is either in their fifties or from the fifties.There will always be sponging gits fact of life.But I notice you failed to mention the tax avoiders I believe they're breaking the law too.Why is'nt there a govt ad campaign against them as it's just as wrong.I don't know where you live but there are a whole host of problems around people finding work in this country.Most of Britain has no idea how some people have to live in some areas.This is not their fault and there's alot of reasons for it but come on how many people do you really know that has twenty kids?That's just tv sensationalism and people like you watch it and wring their hands and feel better about themselves-and you've fallen for it hook ,line and sinker.Don't forget there are alot of people in #ty jobs who make things for crap wages that we consume.I don't blame some of them for going on the social.

Candyfloss, I think you might have your wires crossed there a little friend.
There was no Nazi thoughts going through my mind when I wrote the post I put up. I was only stating that those that are prepared to provide an honest contribution to the Uk or any country to that fact should be allowed to stay, those that are sponging off the state and backs of others should be told to leave. The post also stated that the Brits that abuse the welfare state should provide recompense for what they take, a little national service goes a long way to provide a sense of community and pride .
A man with 20 children doesn't want to work because he makes more on the dole than working is just a lazy slob at heart.
Where as sitting on your fat arse and claiming money you and I work hard for and pay our taxes for is tantamount to thievery.
Unless you think you can rile me to say something untoward.
Surely you can see the benefit of a population working for its own productivity and profit. Not for sponging gits who might as well take your wallet everytime you leave work to go home.
And sorry as for watching JK , i'm too busy working to stay at home and take note of the names of the daytime TV hosts.
But seeing as you think I'm a Nazi and have provided names of said daytime TV hosts , one but cant help but think that maybe you are one of the 'stay at homes'?
If your not then I think apologies all round are ok.
But if you are or don't apologise then my previous statement stands.

I think everyone should stop working and live off the state. If you work then you are keeping the system alive. But I guess, some people like being slaves to a bunch of super-rich morons that truly do nothing. So get off your lazy butt at the office and go plant it on the couch. See how quickly they release the technology that will make 99% of jobs obsolete.
Everyone that says go get a job is partly responsible for all the hell that's been unleashed on this world and they should feel ashamed. That is if they can see through the propaganda they keep repeating over and over.
Long live slack.
