Looking at the coming recession; I doubt it will be all that hard to find Americans to work.

Yes; some of us will be going 'boo-hoo' over actually getting our hands dirty, such is life.

Not so fast. I, for one (Black), will not vote for Obama. It is true that Obama has huge support in the Black community. However, he most definitely does not have all. I can assure you he lost BIG TIME with his stance on illegal immigration. I don't care if he is black, green, or polka dot -- his pro-amnesty stance has, and will, lose him the support of many Blacks. There are too many in the Black community losing their jobs to cheap illegal labor. Not to mention, the ‘ethnic cleansing’ being launched in CA by the Mexican Mafia. Lest we forget -- Clarence Thomas is also Black.

Its almost as if Obama is using his Blackness to get the Black vote. He isn't even full Black, he's half white.

As are a multitude of others in this country. Regardless, he is still considered Black.

Surprise, surprise coming from these anti-American, far-left Liberals! The illegals will vote Democrat and that's the only way they can get those votes. They are a disgrace!! Both of them!

Clinton, Obama court the Hispanic vote in South Florida -- South Florida Sun-Sentinel.com

Americans for Better Immigration
Know what? Send them all back. All 12 million ( probably a lot more). It does not matter if they are hispanic or something else -- send them home. ICE snet a planeload of African nationals back recently from NY state.

Well I am libertarian and I don't support amnesty. We should never reward deliberate criminal activity. It only encourages more of the same as the past 2 amnesty's have proven.
Look at the world not the color of its skin? What part of the term illegal immigrant calls out skin color?
My wife is a legal immigrant her skin is the color of cinamon. She speaks english and will not speak her native tongue in public. Not due to shame, but because she feels that it is rude to do so. I Guess thats but 1 of the many differences between legals and illegals.
