Americans haven't worked in the farming industry for many years? I mean, my relatives did that from day 1 in this country afaik. If 11k job openings is only reflecting 3% of Georgia's illegal population leaving the state I'm sure other industries in that state will be feeling the pain soon too. It's just news now because there are hundreds of millions of dollars of crops going to waste very soon.

Is your position now "Americans will do all those other jobs, just not farming"?

At wages so low (because they have no skills or education to demand any better) they will need subsidies to survive. Admit the facts already. Millions of Americans also want jobs. Why should we cater to law breakers instead of our own citizens?

Who cares what they want? They are not citizens. If they want something let them demand it of their own government rather than the American taxpayer.

Yet millions of illegal immigrants without kids do it all the time or are you insinuating every illegal immigrant family has a kid?

Give up the accusations of racism already. My opposition to illegal immigration, like most posters, is not grounded in anyone's skin color or ethnicity. My opposition is grounded in being asked to subsidize it. Our immigration laws should be designed to serve needs of Americans not the desires of Mexico's underclass.

But keep patting yourself on the back as you pretend otherwise. Because clearly your only argument here is to make yourself feel good while hurling accusations of racism at your opponents.

I am merely pointing out facts. Most illegals have few job skills and do not speak English. Over half are from Mexico. If facts offend you well I suppose that makes you an illegal immigration supporter.

But you do understand that USCIS is funded by petition fees, not by taxpayers?...

Those facts don't offend me. The fact you keep making the whole lot of Mexican immigrants out to be welfare thieves, usurpers and anchor baby droppers despite evidence of them working jobs even you admit Americans won't do makes you either a racist, someone misinformed and holding racist thoughts or beliefs, or at the very least someone who is leaning on some very stereotypical hearsay.
