I think this is a big part of the problem. My ancestors were not illegal. They were immigrants but not illegal.

I just read a thread over on the Arkansas site of where many Indians were to begin working at the WalMart hdqtrs. They were all looking for housing. WEre there not any long time Americans who could have done those jobs ? Or, would they not take WalMarts slave wages ?

I have many Indian clients and friends and I like diversity because I like different foods (LOL) but, this is out of control.

We had different foods since immigration began but we don't need illegal aliens to enjoy different foods and we certainly don't need to be taken over by one ethnic group via illegal immigration and thereby transforming our nation to a Hispanic one. I don't have a problem with different minority cultures living among us but I do object to the diluting of our own culture in such an unnatural manner.

Also, isn't there an immigration forum?
This is the immigration forum and yes those jobs used to be good paying union jobs until the parasite owners found it cheaper to exploit immigrants while destroying America. All they had to do was pay off a few politicians.

I heard that in the future nightmare distopia, all restaurants will be taco bell.
