So don't expect much.
Fine. Let us send them all to Ok, WA, CA and any other state that wants to boycott AZ. If this passes the smell test in the high courts you will see many other states jumping on board as well.

Including Oklahoma. We're already in the process of upgrading HB 1804

She is in agreement and avoids them like the plaugue.

I have also left the employ of others upon discovering illegals in my workforce.

Yes, I take action.
Here ya go: Boycott til the crows come in, but you and your wife may end up starving unless you raise your own meat and grow your own vegtables.

What nonsense! The farmers don't pass any savings on to the consumers because of illegal alien labor. They pocket the profits. What excuse do they have for hiring illegal aliens when there are unlimited visas for legal immigrant workers?

None of us like it and want that to change and heavy penelties invoked on them.

No one except themselves.
That is a stone cold fact.

You call those here illegaly "undocumented workers".
That is nothing but changing what they are, illegal, to something that sounds like, "Oh, it's a minor technicality.

That is not the case and in your heart you know it whether you will admit it to yourself or not.

You say, "If they commited no crime".
Too late, they did when they crossed the border illegaly showing themselves to not be a good candidate for citizenship.

You say your son in law wasn't stealing a job from anyone because he is a Carpenter.
How about other Carpenters perhaps?

I am an Electrician by trade and see companies with the majority, yes the majority, of employees being from Mexico.

Among them by their own admission and by that being corroborated by others (from Mexico) that work there are many illegals.
Very many.

I know many United States Citizen Electricians out of work.

So much for your theory there.
Our wages have stagnated even before the econmy got bad due to this also.

Communication on the job is very poor and that makes a dangerous job even more so.

I have dug ditches, been a janitor, a laborer, etc..

That they do jobs no American wants is a lie.

How dare you insult your countrymen with these false arguments.

Are you afraid to call it what it is?

There is no excuse, none.
Here Here, well said, and i absoutely agree, no sticking up for those in our Country ILLEGALLY, and i don't care the reasons, or how good of a person they are, cross the border by illegal means, your a criminal in my books.
