Need to appease the new democrat voting bloc....

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

Somehow that makes sense to Democrats.

And yet they still try and blame NAFTA on Republicans when the facts show that a Democratic controlled congress with a Democrat president approved NAFTA and now are making it easier to take American jobs.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

...the illegal immigrant more than the employers who exploit them, absolutely. The folks who make millions off of flouting the law and taking advantage of illegal immigrants, both financially and health-wise. Fine 'em a few bucks to make it look like we're acting tough on issues, but by-and-large wink and nod to continue.

My friend's husband was the son of day laborers, and he and his parents would work in the fields and routinely get SPRAYED WITH PESTICIDE from above while working (not daily, but often enough that it wasn't a one-time oopsy). Who's going to complain when you might be deported?

Say what you want to about illegal immigration, but until you truly bite into the practice that makes it economical, it sure as heck will continue.

The way I understand it, there's a concern about the tens of thousands of migrant workers (undocumented I"m sure) that travel across this country to work the fields - that without these laborers, the farmers would be hurting badly. Not sure how much a migrant worker gets paid - but the work is horrible, hot, long hours, demeaning & sad & pays far less than your local fast food places do I'm sure.

I'm not suggesting we turn our heads to illegals & give them a pass, so to speak - of course they need to go after the employers big time, and stop hiring them & start deporting them, like they did back in the 30's. (about 400,000 or so got deported?). Maybe if our legal unemployed want jobs badly enough, they apply for these migrant worker jobs - if enough hire on, then maybe the farmers won't need to rely on the illegals. Just a thought.
