But, illegals only do the jobs Americans wonít do.

Considering the job losses Latinos suffer due to illegal immigration, itís amazing so many continue to support their illegal brethren.

Quote:
"I think that illegal immigrants do take jobs away from native workers, especially out here in the Bay Area," said the 43-year-old son of Mexican immigrants. "I'm unemployed, but I shouldn't have to be. I'm from the area. I was born here and I can't get a job here."

Latino "immigrants" gained 98,000 construction jobs from 2009 to 2010, but Latinos who were born in the United States lost 133,000 construction jobs in the same period, along with 92,000 jobs in transportation, warehousing, wholesale and retail trade.

It is about illegal aliens taking jobs from Americans both Hispanic and non-Hispanic and the negative impact of that. Of course some Hispanics think it is worth it I guess just as long as the reconquista continues.

Hmm....so now a latino born here and legal is a "self addressed latino" ? My my.

More twisting in the wind and attempted deflection from the actual topic.

Blame the capitalist employers who want cheap labor with no obligations or strings attached.

Is that native-born hispanics or all hispanics[does that include foreign born hispanics]...since you know where all hispanics live, who know who they all are and what they all think.

Since illegal aliens are taking jobs from both Ameircans both hispanic and non-hispanic, why is there a "hispanic" qualifier...Just simply state, ..." I believe illegal aliens are taking jobs from Ameicans."...and leave it at that.

Geez! ALL Hispanics that were either born or naturalized here, Is that clear enough for you? This topic is mainly about American Hispanics (see above) who are starting to change their minds about supporting illegal immigration because it is impacting their ability to get and keep gainful employment in this country.

I doubt we will see this on a grand scale though because the Hispanics I have observed outside and in this forum (especially those of Mexican ancestry) defend illegal aliens and want amnesty for them because of an ethnic or ancestoral bond even though it is impacting them negatively also.

We do and we also blame our government for their part in this but that does not absolve the illegals themselves of their part in this three way guiltness.

I would bet that non-hispanic Americans are more upset about being unemployed but so-called "hispanics" would be have to admit to being hypocrits if they support unlimited illegal immigration and fret about high unemployment rates. You really can't have it both ways. Uncontrolled immigration is for the purpose of lowering wages and putting lower and middle class Americans out of work.

Why are you asking me to explain the thread? Either read the article, or move on. Your antics have become tiresome.
