You're right about that. Usually agri-business owners cry about not being able to afford to pay Americans a decent wage to do the work.

Yet these same criminal employers live in mansions and drive luxury cars while paying bribes ( campaign donations ) to politicians to look the other way.

That proves our politicans need to jerked up by the throats for their selling us out. I wonder how many of them are making money off illegals which leads them to ignore the problem? Of course I'm the kind that if i know they are illegal, I will pick a fight with them. Please do call the police !

do you check for documents before you start kickina ss...?

Are you saying since you believe them to be "Illegals", and less likely to call the police, you engage them into fighting?

what a model [law biding] citizen you are...

Look at it like this, they committed a crime by coming here illegaly. I have no use for them or anyone that wants to be on their side. They are invaders and should be treated without respect.

I have some hunting land near the border, and yes, if I see illegals crossing my property line, I generally will shoot warning shots first before asking any questions.

That's a lot of it, the politicians are owned by the cheap-labor lobby.

They don't care, the elites want to surround themselves with nothing but the cheapest servants that the taxpayers must subsidize. The elites want labor they can pay dirt wages, provide no health insurance and just let that fall onto the shoulders of the taxpayers.

Then the elites are impressed by their own propaganda, movies like Day without a Mexican which assumes all people never mow their own lawns, wash their own dishes, pick up after themselves.

The open border lobby mistakenly assumed everyone would panic when they said "But who will make your bed, be your ultra-cheap live in nannies, what will you do if your servants don't show up one day??!!" They're so cut off from reality they don't realize that most Americans simply do things for themselves or drop their kids off at day care centers where employees are paid at least a minimum wage. Most of us don't live with countless servants and we don't expect to have them come cheap.

This repeal has passed the House and is now headed for the Senate. We have over 4,000 on the waiting list for services for people with developmental disabilities and I have seen a couple series of cuts come down for the school system not to mention the funding cuts to the cities. Kansas is illegal friendly and the wages paid here are a reflection of that. The employers are a major source of the problem. If we would just enforce the laws we have it would at least help. When we were in Alabama, the law enforcement there took whatever training, etc. it took so that they could arrest and detain illegals just as they do in Arizona where we lived also. In AZ, English as a Second Language sucked up so much of the funding that our son with DS could not get the speech therapy he needed for his first language, English! I could not believe that Kansas did this is the first place but really, Pittsburg, KS tried to pass a program where illegals could get a driver's license with the excuse that it would make the roadways safer than their driving around without a license. My older son went to college in Emporia and he said that every Monday, you could go and watch a bus load of illegals coming into work at the meat plant. They have destroyed Dodge City and Garden City and this is happening across the US. Illegal is illegal. They like to cry "race" but that is crap as I have known people legally here that feel the same way - illegal is illegal! Used to be that people came into the country, set up a life and had a job to work for the American dream but now, they want a handout and demand it. I don't think so. I'm watching the Senate to see what they do with this repeal. It paid to do some "cleaning" in the last election here!

You Betcha, Tyson is built on illegal labor. I live on the border and nthe Border Patrol is turning things arouns but without slamming the employers and stopping the narco traffic it's futile
