Wow, it's amazing that "profit" is such a dirty word around here. Who knew that REAL Americans are so opposed to it?!

You're asking me to explain my entire stance on immigration currently, just to be clear. Since that's a little cumbersome, allow the Cato Institute to help us out:

Anyone who wants companies to be able to hire currently illegal immigrants for economic gain = GREEDY ANTI-AMERICAN PIGS

Anyone who wants illegal immigrants out for economic gain = FLAG WAVING PATRIOT

Yeah, I mean, all this insistence on people here wanting to tell companies to pay everyone the same wage and tell companies who to hire, a belief that companies will all charge the same prices to consumers regardless of costs incurred by the company, and the desire for a border more secure than the Berlin Wall, it sure sounds like a lot of people here want to turn America into the USSR.

I donít need you to explain your stance on illegal immigration. You already unveiled your agenda. Or, have you forgotten?

Thanks for the link, but I have read more than enough biases studies.

Oh, you mean where you read a sentence of mine that said nothing of the sort to indicate that my Dad's company hires illegals. NEVER FORGET.

Can't argue with that.

How much more generous can we possibly be? We already welcome more LEGAL immigrants than ALL other countries combined. In addition, we have more ILLEGAL aliens than ALL other countries combined. We cannot allow the entire world to relocate to the US. This is so tiresome.

The whole world doesn't want to come here.

And no, we're not asking for your generosity. Immigration helps the economy and improves the livelihood of the vast majority of people in the country. If there truly aren't jobs for immigrants, then immigrants leave or stay home. As we saw in the original post in this thread, immigrants want to come here and work to make a good life for themselves and their children. They are making America a better place.

I refuse to read any more of this anti-American hogwash and pro-illegal propaganda. Welcome to my ignore list.
