Yes, exactly. ECONOMICS 101.

Today I saw two stores selling Doritos. One bag was being sold for $1.50, and the other for $1. However, the second one wasn't cheaper since I just pocketed the extra money.
An employer CANNOT however choose to hire an illegal alien over a legal worker according to our laws. So what hell are you talking about?

Another dumb analogy this about Doritos now?

I was mocking your assertion that there is no economic benefit to cheaper labor if the employer "pockets" the money. Sorry if that was not clear.

They do when they catch them! What has this to do with illegal immigration anyway? Many illegals are caught and just released back into our society also. Or did you conveniently forget about that?

As we are not hypocrites, we support law enforcement utilizing their limited resources on enforcing crimes that are harmful. Not harmless crimes such as jaywalking when no cars are around or immigrating into a country to find work without documentation.

Raping in this case means stealing. As if you didn't know that. There have been many viable stats posted in here numerous times proving this. You just refuse to accept them because you obviously have an agenda that isn't pro-American and pro-American workers.

There's no way for the ones that keep getting brought up on this forum (the ones working construction jobs, the ones possibly on (gasp!) PUBLIC ASSISTANCE etc) to do so.

Think about what is being said for a moment. You are simply using one much more horrible term when you mean another.

I mean, why not just call it genocide? Sure, it's not genocide, but go ahead, right?

See British Empire for details. It's the best example free labor proponents can study.

Where did I advocate the outsrourcing of our jobs. Both illegal immigration and outsourcing are hurting the American worker. I am far from a liberal, I am totally conservative.

I didn't elect Obama. I voted for someone else and it wasn't McCain either.

Who is advocating getting rid of "Hispanics"? Oh, do you mean illegal aliens? Say what you mean instead of pulling the race card. I have no problem with lawabiding, legal Hispanics.

Genocide and stealing are two different things for God's sake!
