Hey...I emailed him the other night and told him about this law that was passed in Oklahoma and suggested he look into it and think about implementing it in Calif...of course, with Ted Kennedy in him family, there's a fat chance of that ever happening!

Well next time we will have to elect someone that isn't married to a Kennedy. Hopefully other states will follow in Oklahoma's lead because this problem is out of control. I don't mind people coming to America looking for a better life, but do it legally and LEARN ENGLISH.

Meanwhile, millions upon millions of Americans make their living by leeching off government handouts.

I see an opportunity here. Do you?

Of course, no American will work for $8/hr doing construction. BUT, without illegals, construction will HAVE to pay more, and you'll start seeing Americans back in the jobs.

Here in South Florida, with our glut of illegal labor, it's rare to see an American of any color doing construction. However, for some reason, when I travel through a lot of the midwest that isn't known for illegal immigration, I see plenty of construction projects being done by Americans. Funny how that is, huh?

ICE is now deporting illegals in L.A. fast as they can, also illegals driving illegally here are now paying the consequences; NBC news. Illegals for a few years now are the largest single group moving out of CA to other states.

So is my father a builder, for 60 years. In L.A. illegals have pushed Americans out of many fields including construction, so many Americans have fled out of states starting in the early 90's. When illegals are gone Americans will come back here by the millions to do all kinds of sub construction jobs FOR GOOD WAGES. Rise in population causes rise in costs, lower population causes lower costs and high wages.
