You do not understand the benefits illegal aliens bring?

Did you eat any fruits or vegetables today?

Who do you think picked the fruits and vegetables you are eating...a white guy with an MBA?

Did you every use a public restroom in the past week?

Who do you think cleaned the restroom?

Do you see Americans lining up around the block to pick fruit or scrub toilets?


Those are not benefits that only illegal aliens can deliver.
So legal citizens cannot pick fruit or clean a bathroom?
I figure if we start cutting entitlements iin this country citizens will line up to clean toilets and pick fruit as opposed to starving to death.

Plus, the public toilet I used was cleaned by a white woman and she seemed pretty at peace with it.

You mean the vegetables contaminated by e.coli because of the the migrant workers crapping in the fields while they work?

So now you are saying only people in Congress can have an opinion on what should be done? Hopefully, they wont go the amnesty route this time because 80% of the American public are against illegal immigration and just might be forced to take matters into their own hands.


The same sentiments were expressed the last times that they handed out amnesty.

Actually I believe that all the tension is on purpose. The cartels are going to be the reason the US will use to send troops into mexico. It's called the Merida Initiative.

I'm sorry but this is total bullcrap!


Let's see, did anyone prior to the flood of illegals in the last say 25 years clean restrooms, pick fruit, mow lawns, build crappy cookie cutter housing?
For a "lawyer", this is an extremely weak argument. You don't see people lining up to do work that illegals will be hired to do at wages a person can only live on in Mexico! Just today, I spoke with a man who moved to the south from Chicago after being a union carpenter for 20 years. He said, "I didn't expect to make what I made there, but I can't live on $8-$10 bucks an hour for a job I never made less than $25 an hour to do. I can't compete with illegals!" verbatim. So, mister high and mighty, there is a guy right there who has moved half way across the country to do a job that an illegal stole from him!

Many of those people who are on entitlements cannot work because they are too old, disabled, or just worthless sacks of crap. You are not going to completely replace the good illegal immigrant alien workers by cutting entitlements.

Oh yea you can. You would be amazed when you see how a worthless sack of crap becomes a decent worker when his other choice is starving to death and being homeless.

Plus we should raise the retirement age in this country.

People did do those jobs before illegal immigrants came to this country, but many were Black people who could not do any other type of job because they were denied access to education and job opportunities.

Now Black people go to college and get good jobs. So who was going to fill the void the left behind?

You are correct in that there are some instances where illegal aliens compete with American workers, like the carpenter job. A good policy will eliminate this competition. However, there are not many displaced American fruit pickers and toilet scrubbers.

Trust me I see plenty of stupid people of all races running around this country who are only capable of cleaning toilets and picking fruit. I think we will be ok. There are no lack of fools in this nation.

Look there is AT LEAST 10% joblessness in this country. That means like 20 million people out of work. That is more than enough to cover illegal immigrants and give people back the jobs that illegas stole. THEY TOOK R JOBBBBS!!!!

So YOU are okay with cleaning toilets or picking fruit. It is YOUR lifelong ambition to be a janitor or fruit picker.

Now I know you will say, "I will gladly pick fruit if it paid $25/hour, had PPO medical, dental, vision, and a 401(k)." Of course, if fruit pickers were paid high wages and given full benefits, food would be really expensive and this would shatter our economy.

So each and every one of those 20 million jobless would settle for a fruit-picking job at or near the minimum wage?

I think not!

Your lack of the use of facts or logic astounds me! So, by your rationale a large supply of cheap illegal labor only affects the lowest paying jobs? I wonder, what alternatives to people who would take a job picking fruit or scrubbing toilets have when illegals occupy those positions? Welfare (tax burden), crime (tax burden); please do not say education because a) how would they pay for it, b) I have one and I can only find $8-$12 an hour jobs right now today!

Yeah I am not above doing any sort of work that I have to do to provide for myself and my family. I am not some arrogant elitist that think certain jobs are below me. In fact, I own a business and I am cheap so I dont like to pay for cleaning people. So me and my staff trade cleaning the office every few months. So once every couple of months I clean the office, vacuum, and scrub the toilets. After all we are the ones that made the mess why should we be so arrogant as to expect other people to clean our pubes off of the toilet seat.

My final post is I think landmines are too expensive. I think it would be cheaper to make illegal immigrants wear little yellow stars so we all know who they are. The starts can read "Justice Under a Democratically Elected Nation" or an appropriate five letter acronym can be used.

Second line.

Also, me and my family go to a farm to pay them to let us pick fresh strawberries. It is always a great time and we all look forward to it.

I have always thought the easiest and cheapest way to stop illegal immigration from Mexico was to simply electrify the Rio Grande. As soon as someone puts a toe into that polluted water, it would fry right off. Of course, this would only work for a large portion of the border but it would be cheap and relatively easy.

It has a good chance of working but I bet that before long youd have all kinds of power cables feeding homes off of it.
