Just a thought here; many who support or are otherwise OK with illegal immigrants are also, politically, pro-union. Now if a union goes on strike, members and supporters will revile non-union workers cross the picket line to work.

Now explain to me how illegals who get jobs in factories and other places of business are not pretty much the same thing?

or no union support.

I don't think they could get past union lines if the
union were on strike. Like the OP said, that would make them "scabs".

And yet some unions will support illegals. Illegals are the ultimate scabs.

That's what the Cesar Chavez and UFW efforts against illegals was mostly about, they knew that the illegals were about keeping wages very very low.

Criminal aliens are, well, criminals. "Scabs" are Americans doing jobs real union works are unwilling to do.

More like Illegals will undercut any and everyone.

Scabbing, sub par wages, no breaks, benefits or breaks.

Sadly these idiots haven't realized that if they didn't pump out so many kids they wouldn't have to be in the situation they're in.

It's not rocket science, the more mouths to feed, less education and job opportunities will force you to take more risks, less pay and engage in more illegal activities to survive and/or advance in life.

It's the CULTURE they're from. If they had the chance to have even more kids they would. Also their kids generally pump out more babies at an even earlier age than the general population.

According to the NYT article, the presences of illegals as janitors hurt many janitor unions. LA's janitor union didn't recover until the mid 1990s.

Strangely, they honor him instead. I guess they don't want to believe that he was opposed to illegal immigration because he is ethnically like most illegals in our country today and his family was from Mexico although he himself was born in Arizona.
