Ironic ain't it!

We let illegals march on the streets that we need to give them more, etc.

Mexico has very strict immigration laws.

I hope the Supreme court refuses to hear that damn suit. Let those cretins take it to the Hague where the rest of the planet, also being fed up with illegals, will have an influence on the outcome.

This is another example of the United Nations ineffectiveness in dealing with the real issues of today. Were that august body working correctly; Mexico and others would be held to account for not providing the essentials for the necessities of life and the advancement of their citizens.

I love the fact that protesters wave that Mexican flag around like it's a source of pride for them, sheesh! If you're so proud of it, why not return to it's shade?

I also think it is a great idea, especially for those on probation. I know that most criminals aren't hardcore criminals but when they get out of prison, they find it hard to locate employment and most cite this as the reason they go back to crime. So I am all for ex-offenders getting these jobs. I read another article once in the AJC some time ago that these laborers make more than minimum wage so way more than working in fast food in most locations.

Really, I don't see what's the big deal. From what I have read and watched on the news, it is for ex-offenders primarily and not for people in prison right now to work for free. The people on probation would get paid a regular wage that the illegals were getting so it is not slavery. I am black and actually get sick of people trying to make something look racist that is not. Lots of black people don't like illegal immigration either since they do affect predominately black areas quite a bit with the large amounts of illegal children enrolled in schools that are already in need.

Way to go!!!!

PS Did you read some of the idiotic comments? Chain gangs...forced labor....good heavens! I guess it shows the comprehension level of those open border supporters.
I agree since I cannot see a downside to this, well unless you are an unskilled docuementated migrant worker. They are the ones who are competing for these positions
