If you don't know the point of this thread, then it ready doesn't make any difference what it is.

Then what about my comment that many "anchor babies" grow up to join the military? I don't see rich people (or many middle class for that matter) sending their kids to go fight all these battles. I suppose somebody will find a negative in this.

they provide a wonderful opportunity for a few american companies to get rich.
they get politicians reelected if amnesty passes.
they provide a wonderful opportunity to cultivate a taste for mexican food.
its a great social lesson in what happens to human behavior when someone is not standing over you with a stick anymore----e.g.napoleonic code law of mexico vs american no fault ever criminal law.

They do almost all the farm work. Americans don't like to pick the fields. This has been proven for generations.

They have children. Many of these children join in the military and help fight our wars.
Sure sure, whatever - ONLY illegals work the fields - grow up.

They sure do - seems that's ONE thing they are GOOD at.....as long as someone else provides for them.

I lived in the Rio Grande Valley for many years as a teacher. I knew many potential illegals personally whose children went to serve in the military. Generally, their parents were migrant workers.

Yet you conveniently ignore the rest of that statement.

It isn't only illegals who work the fields, however, you would be hard pressed to find enough Americans willing to pick up the slack if illegals went home.
