You mean the many agricultural jobs that no American wants to do (because it requires hard work), but immigrants don't mind doing? And getting paid good money for? And doing background checks (E-Verify) is costing FARMERS too much money to do so (at $150 per prospective employee):

So much so that Alabama is proposing to use prisoners to make up for the shortage of labor (and that is pretty much FREE labor):

why don't you move to Alabama and help them with their shortage of laborers if you're so concerned.

Really ? So the 11-20 million illegals in this country are all "picking crops" ?
Put the glass down and step away from the table. You've drank too much already

Just think, the criminals that brought this kid over will be legal too within the year if Obama has his way. Who said crime doesn't pay?

Nice that you ignore that the the FAUX outrage of illegals taking away jobs, when they aren't. As we have seen in Alabama, THERE ARE Thousands of work positions available, but Americans do not want to work 8 hours in the hot sun, picking fruit or cutting vegetables.

the only people who have drunk anything are those that buy into the "illegals are taking away our jobs" nonsense.

Actually if they become LPRs (legal permanent residents) they then qualify for almost all of our government programs within a certain time. The 2 sides in Congress are debating how long that should be.
Seeing this is the new future voting block their debates are going to be about less time and not more.

So they committed fraud, and possibly identity theft, big deal, Obama can decide not to enforce those crimes and it's all good. It's not like enforcing our laws and upholding the Constitution is his concern, is it?

News; that is not the job of the President. You might want to educate your self on what agencies in our Government is responsible for immigration.

They are in the processing plants which did take jobs away from Americans.
Some have even made it into law enforcement and education. How is beyond me though with the verification they supposedly do.
One even got an internship with a member of Congress. A federal job for an illegal..how's about that ?

Yes, these poor illegals are doing jobs "Americans don't want".

Which Americans have shown they are not interested in doing. My mother worked in a processing plant when she was in high school. Most of those she worked with were immigrants on job work visas or high school students wanting a first job. You didn't see anyone from Harvard working on the floor.

If they've made it into law enforcement or education, then how can they be illegal aliens? They are legal immigrants who sought to be here legally. How are they taking away jobs of Americans? By doing better than Americans?

Nice that you don't link to anything that says this.

Can you say "misdemeanor" as in "high crimes and misdemeanors" as in IMPEACHMENT. Who's next, bank robbers.
