Which is why we are seriously Alabama bound. If we had themoney in the bank we'd be leaving by next week. I can actually do sheetrock and concrete work. I can also build wall and door frames. My daddy taught me well

You're absolutely right! Its a pity, they start to shut their mouths when they see businesses closing down and moving their operations elsewhere. The employer is more likely to do with capital or shut down his operation than employ people asking for higher wages. If you want a higher wage offer something unique that others can't offer - be competitive! The economic consequences are going to outweigh the costs greatly; its worrying that some people don't get the bigger picture!

I seriously doubt legal Hispanics are fleeing anywhere.

Why is the media using the term "Hispanic" to refer to "Illegal Immigrants"?

Guess the media is being the very thing that it accuses anti-illegals of being.

It is because they want to portray the enforcement of our immigration laws as picking on one ethnic group. They also want to take the focus off it being an illegal alien issue and not a Hispanic issue per se. It isn't our fault that most illegals in this country are Hispanic and Hispanic citzens or legal immigrants would have no reason to "flee". Its like a little mind game they like to play and it is blatantly dishonest.
