For the record: Saltine is quite anti illegal immigration--------he may have been making a sarcastic point with his post.

No one has shown that illegals have a negative impact on the nation, Obviously with between 6 and 10 million gainfully employed it should be obvious that the impact is pretty darned positive
You are joking, right???? The negative impact has been shown for years. How many American's do you think should be out of work so you can buy cheap lettuce??

not that americans won't work for these jobs, they will. But its the employers who insist they want to pay very low wages.. and illegals will do that.. they all cram into a home and live like hogs in a pig sty...they don't need higher wages or want them.. they use phony id's to collect many welfare checks a month to support their anchor babies.. the more babies the more money and checks they get.. the taxpayers support these babies through college.The anchor babies support their parents forever.. nice parents? ..

I have been seeing ALOT of people that don't and won't speak English working at Fast Food Restaurants.. including McDonald's, Burger King, Taco Bell, etc.. In N Out seems to be the only chain that hires Americans around here..

Also, at Gas Stations, Chevron and Arco/AM PM tend to be huge employers of rude people that either don't or pretend "not to" speak english to their customers.. Are they illegal? One can only assume since it is obvious that they don't want to assimilate and be Americans..

A lot more jobs should be on the list. I can get a bachelors degree, but an illegal who just crossed the border last week can get a job over me because he or she speaks spanish?

What's your degree in? It's hard to get a job right now due to the economy, but if you've gotten a degree and can't get a job because you can't speak Spanish, then you can't get a job because you made a poor choice in regard to your chosen skill (Or, in this case, degree.).

In many areas of the country, you cannot get a job if you do not speak very fluent Spanish. Where I live for example there are very few jobs for English speakers. Medical assistants, receptionists, store clerks, store managers, auto mechanics, restaurant managers, construction workers and foreman, machinists, nurses, social workers, and many other types of job seekers absolutely will not find a job if they are not fluent in Spanish.

African-Americans find language barrier in borderland | www.kfoxtv.com

"They're going from job to job because of the language barrier, or they don’t speak Spanish, and that's one of the main requirements around the local area – you have to be able to speak Spanish, even though they have a degree," said Jon Bessellieu.

List of jobs illegals wont do:
1. Apply for immigration legally
2. Apply for a legal social security card
3. Use their real name
4. Obey immigration laws
5. Hold themselves accountable when they are caught
6. Tell their children the truth of why they are being deported
7. Try to affect change in their native country
This list is growing also, Oh wait there isnt enough money in it for them...
Whats the source of all this BS?
