How about helping, instead of shifty opportunists, service men and women who need assistance?
Read the story of this poor guy, how he returned, hit bottom, and is working his way up.

Yes and a poll taken immediately after the announcement when the MSM was bleating about how great this was and how Obama pulled a fast one on Romney.

I wonder how June job numbers are going to look -- and if people will still be saying that they think it's wonderful that Obama has given many more American jobs away to foreigners.

Besides one-fourth of doctors in the United States, and one-third of nurses, being foreign-born...

Not that "foreigners" getting more jobs here (as someone says above) is the same phraseology as illegal aliens getting jobs here...

I'd like to see a poll taken only of unemployed white/black/hispanics under 30 years old U.S. citizens and the following question asked. 'Do you find it acceptable that you now have to compete for a job with 800,000 illegal aliens'.

Well, not according to this article, an example of information available. Upper level positions are filled with only a minority of Asian and Hispanics because they are in the minority for obtaining these degrees. There is now a push to give incentives to Blacks, Asians and Hispanics to get them into PhD and Masters programs.

Unless you can show me something different, I disagree with your statement.

So does this mean you support Obama's amnesty plan to put over a million illegal aliens into our workforce to compete for jobs? Really? If that isn't a vendetta against the common American then I don't know what is.

Whether they're in our workforce or not, they CAME HERE ILLEGALLY and that is the issue.

We should improve the LEGAL immigration process which is a mess and get rid of the ILLEGAL process which is 100% wrong and lets anyone into the country. Anyone. Criminal, terrorist, disease carrier, ANYONE. No one even knows who or where they are.

What they do is count those who are undecided as 'in favor of,' since they didn't clearly oppose it.
