Who are these people that are so gung-ho for amnesty for the law-breaking illegals? They are certainly not the bulk of our low wage service employees eking out a living, earning 10 to 12 dollars an hour. These illegals without any particular skills create a huge labor pool competing with our own less skilled citizens. The lame excuse that the illegals are needed to do jobs our citizens refuse to do is pure poppycock. Mexicans always came over the border to do the harvest and returned home after the harvest. The illegal immigration invasion can be solved fairly easily if our do-nothing government would enforce the law. Our business companies etc. should be fined substantially large enough to refrain them from hiring illegal aliens. Bus tickets for the unhappy illegals seeking employment should be provided. Since they came to our country seeking jobs and find no more jobs available they would have little choice but to return home. To give illegal allies amnesty is totally unfair for those waiting in line for legal entry no matter how sorry many of us feel for the illegals seeking a better life.
I can't help but believe that our elites are trying to bring us down to third world standards. It's surely a fact that the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. Cheap labor can do it.
