Not all Americans are "white collar" people. Some of us don't have "it" to play with college people; why in the hell should we have to fight with ANY illegal alien in the US for jobs??

It's sort of insane to be happy about that unless you're an illegal or a high school dropout from Mexico with five children you can't support.
I see what you're saying too.

I think this issue is going to fade away in a couple of days and people will forget all about it.
