he has cancer and it's killing him
but we're not gonna operate
cuz the cancer is curing his asthma.

More like:
"Yes sir, I know your cancer is invading your body, and I'm aware that's it's also killing you, but your cancer lives there now and it has as much right to live in your body as you do, even if it kills you."

Brilliant move!! If business can't pay cheap salaries to illegals, they will go back to hiring regular Americans...because in the end, most are better qualified than the average illegal immigrant, even if it's only because of the language barrier.

This is a good thing because it'll create MORE JOBS for Americans, and makes it less possible for illegals to find work!!

The people trying to spin this as if Obama just wants the illegals to earn more are too stupid to think further than the average highschool kid!!

FAIR WAGES? They should not be hired to begin with! Whats wrong with this guy? At a time when so many Americans are out of work we should seal our borders and stop all immigration

Interesting. Is this like that Leviticus thing were it is okay to own only people from neighbouring nations, but not your own? Kinda like that?

They don't deserve any wages because they are breaking the law! they are not allowed to be here in the first place!!!!

I think for purposes of this argument, if you can't admit that someone legal has more "merit" than someone illegal, you've nothing to contribute.

IMHO and with all respect that is.

I fully disagree. The companies that hire them a 'legal' companies. They feel that 'illegals' have enough merit to do the work.

I say that every person who is unemployed, should call up the department of Labor and make a complaint to the federal government, demanding compensation from every illegale immigrant here who is working in this country and has broken the laws. This is a bunch of bs and I do believe that they really need to think about what they are stating.

Not that I agree they have the right to fair wages. But if they were paid at the same rate legals were, wouldn't the be almost no reason to hire an illegal over legal?

Um, no you would be wrong, the 14th amendment allows for all persons BORN or Naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
Which would suggest born or naturalized, ( green card for your small brain) to given the rights and liberties as such, the 14th amendment doesn't give liberties and freedoms to illegals, is specifically identifies BORN and NATURALIZED you TROLL!

Try again!

This govt. has got to be removed by election! I'm one of those unemployed workers in Cailf. The building trades are totally over run by illegals! Youn can get four to one with the wages they accept. I also was put in a position once where I trained some of these people and then was let go! This administration is completly out of touch with the trade workers in America Kick them all back to where
ever they came from.

Illegals don't deserve anything.. they are here illegally, they are breaking the law, they are criminals, and should be sent back home.. or worse.. Come through the front door and we will welcome you , sneak across the border and expect to be arrested!

Obama should be impeached for this. this is promoting illegal activity.

well obviously you're not American but that is not what our country was founded on
This country was founded by British Landowners who wanted to transfer the British system of aristocratic land ownership and sharecropping to themselves

but this guy staged a coup and it prompted the TPTB at the time to draft the Bill Of Rights (which is more off a guideline than a rule)
we never as a government gave a tinkers damn about anyone s rights and TPTB don't care about illegals either it's political they want to piss us off so we'll rebel and justify total martial law and Fascist Socialist take over

Shays's Rebellion Shays's Rebellion, 1786–87, armed insurrection by farmers in W Massachusetts against the state government. Debt-ridden farmers, struck by the economic depression that followed the American Revolution, petitioned the state senate to issue paper money and to halt foreclosure of mortgages on their property and their own imprisonment for debt as a result of high land taxes. Sentiment was particularly high against the commercial interests who controlled the state senate in Boston, and the lawyers who hastened the farmers' bankruptcy by their exorbitant fees for litigation. When the state senate failed to undertake reform, armed insurgents in the Berkshire Hills and the Connecticut valley, under the leadership of Daniel Shays and others, began (Aug., 1786) forcibly to prevent the county courts from sitting to make judgments for debt. In September they forced the state supreme court at Springfield to adjourn. Early in 1787, Gov. James Bowdoin appointed Gen. Benjamin Lincoln to command 4,400 men against the rebels. Before these troops arrived at Springfield, Gen. William Shepard's soldiers there had repelled an attack on the federal arsenal. The rebels, losing several men, had dispersed, and Lincoln's troops pursued them to Petersham, where they were finally routed. Shays escaped to Vermont. Most of the leaders were pardoned almost immediately, and Shays was finally pardoned in June, 1788. The rebellion influenced Massachusetts's ratification of the U.S. Constitution; it also swept Bowdoin out of office and achieved some of its legislative goals. See G. R. Minot, History of the Insurrections in Massachusetts in 1786 (1788, repr. 1971); R. J. Taylor, Western Massachusetts in the Revolution (1954, repr. 1967); M. L. Starkey, A Little Rebellion (1955); D. P. Szatmary, Shays' Rebellion (1980).

so that's America I love my land ,I hate my rulers

your statement, the Bill Of Rights (which is more off a guideline than a rule), are you just plain dumb? The Constitution which includes the Bill of Rights is the Supreme law of the land! There is only one other Troll who claimed that its a set of guidelines and that came from the mistake of a president known as Obama!

Get back on your ferry and go back to your hole you #in Troll!

This is going to backfire so badly.

The only real reason to hire illegals right now is for the slave labor. By lowering the cost of a resource, businesses can make more money. But if employers are forced to pay "fair wages", why suffer the risks of hiring an illegal without any of the rewards?
