Greed isn't particular to one party. As far as I can tell in D.C. some on both sides of the isle want them here. The majority of the citizens, both left and right want this nonsense stopped.

greatbasing, if they close all those places. Why not close all the companies in the service and leisure market while they're at it right?

True enforcement of immigration laws would be interesting from an historical point of view, but I don't think it would be fun to live through.

Americans will gladly work in the fields when wages draw labor to that market. There are alot of unemployed and working poor Americans in this country who will start to take a serious look at migrant agricultural jobs when the price is right. immigrants are taking jobs from our menial work force by working for slave wages and this effecting wages all through the labor pool. This is a market, simple supply and demand dont try to make it something its not. We dont need immigrant workers to feed us poor helpless Americans what we need is a fair labor market and our jobs returned

Oh I highly doubt that would work for you.The rest of America would be happier than sheet, suddenly a nice market would open up for smaller growers, the ones that arent corporate like and exploit illegal labor(maybe they would go Belly Up) . Oh yeah, that would be just fine, double, triple the prices, big fricken deal, Argue it all you want, your opinion is a small minority.

Right, Some people refuse to see, beins they either hire illegals, are related or just never saw the neg. impact. Or just don't give a crap and maybe even hate America and want to see the downward spiral.

Well, I have to say you are part of the illegal problem.
As far as I am concerned you are aiding and abetting a criminal! And no better than they are.
reasoning with shops and government does not work very well does it
i mean even if you get mad and yell a lil.
blood pressure increase does not result in wage increase.
we have to change the way we do business.
we have to start using the "u" word
you know ugly dirty, the one that got us to the good life from 1929
