Apparently, they believe the only people who deserve human rights are illegal aliens. But, somehow they only deserve human rights from the USA. They refuse to hold their governments accountable.

But, that wouldn’t support their amnesty agenda.
Yeah, a movie like that would be made when hell freezes over.

Outsourced the Movie

I'll save you the time. It is the same priniciple. Jobs were lost to lower paying workers.

It's out, I saw the shorter preview on Univision. If it is released anything like "Crossing Over" it will be hard to find in theaters. I had to wait until that one (a good movie, but as complex as a "Dune" plot) came out on DVD.

If they were a net benefit, their own countries would be trying to keep them but also our own economy would be in better shape than it is. These are people who are having many children at very young ages that they could not afford -- they couldn't afford them back home where they know the language and culture and where the cost of living is very low.

These are people who see getting illegally into another country as "a better life" even though they lack the education and job skills to support themselves in their own low-cost-of-living country and certainly cannot afford their families here.

"A better life" means a life of Medicaid and free health care, food stamps, WIC, free school breakfasts and lunches in addition to breaking the laws of this country.

Why not have the better life by staying in school back home, finishing an education, marrying before having children and limiting family size to what they can afford and joining their own country's growing middle class?

I liked the movie about illegals called "Tres Veces Mojado" in a way. Yes, at the end, you could almost feel a little sorry for them but they didn't end up with some job here and put some American out of work.

How about a movie showing jobless and homeless Americans? All the Americans being replaced in the workforce by taxpayer subsidized illegals?

It wouldn't be considered PC to make such a movie. Sad, isn't it?

I'll get you started with a trailer:

Jane: "Why are you jobless, Stan?"

Stan: "Illegal immigrants do my job better and/or cheaper. It's like some kind of market that I have to compete in."

Jane: "This is ridiculous, I'm calling the INS."

INS Operator: "Dial 1 for English"

Stan and Jane: "Nooooooooooooo"
