Where are those illegal aliens going to get their "free" medical treatment now?

BTW, where are the hardworking taxpayers going to get theirs, now? Closed is closed.
You illegal-alien advocates also know, don't you, that diseases like Tuberculosis and Polio, which had been largely eradicated in the U.S., are now making a major comeback here as illegal aliens come in while skirting the routine checks all immigrants used to get, for infectious diseases.

But you folks knew all about that, didn't you.

Is that something we should count as "What illegal aliens have done for America"? Or not?

Yet no one wants to go after the employers, just the employees, how convenient.

We want the Feds to go after all the law breakers but businesses apparently get a pass.

Quit with the entittlement. I am not a donation service. Look to church for that bucko. If someone wants to do a job cheaper than I'm all for the cheaper one (if quality same). I'm not going to subdize a bunch of teenagers or no-talent uneducated hipsters to pick tomatoes. Thats crap.
You're going off topic. The subject is illegal immigration. You woud hire an illegal immigrant against the laws of this country just to get a job done cheaper? So you would pass their social costs on to the rest of us? Only 3% of illegals are picking crops.

WTF do you call it unskilled. Unskilled = low pay

sounds fair to me. If you compete with a non-english speaking forigner for a job. . perhaps you should think about becoming skilled?
It is about the greed of the employer wanting to increase his profits. How does one compete with that? It has nothing to do with an American lacking the skills to do the job.

Nothing justifies breaking the law. Report the neighbor then.

What was rude about it? Speaking the truth is rude? I never said that all illegals are worthless but they certainly are all breaking the law and hardly any end up the way the guy you described did and that doesn't justify his breaking of the law either.

That right there is what I call greed. Every man for themselves attitude. They don't care we pick up the tab for what the employer should be paying. That does fit in with the Obama-ites "I got mine" attitude.

They won't increase much in price and that is what I told you. In fact when you factor in their social costs my 25 cent tomato will probably only cost me 20 cents if they weren't here doing the picking. The growers simply pocket the profits from cheap, illegal labor they don't pass the savings on to the consumer. And don't call me a liar.
