What jobs are you referring to? Sans, crop picking for a living what are these jobs that Americans "aren't going for"?

I love how people say things like this as if they have been in every city or town to confirm that.

Well, that would make them legal, and who wants a "Legal" Immigrant? They would have pay a minimum wage, pay taxes, give them breaks and couldn't threaten to deport them. So the way I see it, who will hire them?

No never said. Once again please show a post where i did.
What I have said repeatedly is that our needs were different then as compared to now.
Now we can afford and actually need to raise our standards. We simply don't need 10's of millions of uneducated low skilled workers.

Where you said what? What do you think I'm claiming you said that you didn't say?

Your post#57
You make a habit out of misquoting others, and it gets old.

By insinuating in reponse to my post that I have ever said what you posted.
When I reply to your posts or use the quote function I address what you have actually said. I dont try to read between the lines or say what you really meant to say etc. I show you the respect of actually addressing what you said. I would apreciate the same respect.
