Oh wonderful - please do come on over. Could you encourage anyone you know to come too, and be ready to fill an IMMEDIATE JOB OPENING for a chicken hanger / catcher. We needed over 157 at one plant alone today, the plant that provides Costco with all those wonderful boneless, skinless chicken parts in those nice clean little freezer ready packages. For some reason known only to God, I guess, the folks who had these jobs before they were stolen don't seem to be banging down the doors to get back to work. Bummer!

Sorry but this is not true. For unskilled Mexican citizens who are looking to live and work in the USA there is absolutely NO legal way to do so. Period.

That's why they have to come illegally.

Then play the price when caught. It aint what we can do for someone who wants to come here; its called whats in it for the USA? If that hurts the illegal Mexican, we dont care.

Well, often those people are doing jobs like picking crops, washing dishes, building homes, or mopping floors, all things that make the lives of Americans better. So yes, there is something in it for the USA.

The property should be taken away.

No, the main reason they shouldn't be here is becasue it is against the law.

So it doesn't matter to you that they are working these jobs without authorization and in most cases using fake and stolen I.D.'s or not paying any income taxes by working under the table? Americans aren't willing to do those jobs and in turn pay income taxes and make the lives of the rest of us Americans better? There is nothing in it for the USA if Americans are working those same jobs? Please don't bring up yet again the supposed cheap prices we are getting due to illegal alien labor either as that has been debunked over and over when you consider their social costs we are paying and that it puts Americans out of work and therefore they have no buying power to buy these so-called "cheap" goods.
