I could not agree more, Coffee Mate!

Unfortunately, we have too many spineless leaders in Washington, as well as many State Capitals and Law Enforcement Agencies, who refuse to understand and/or accept your extremely logical point!

so lock up all the business owners who hire illegals. that will surely solve the problem.

cant wait to see even more overcrowded jails and less necessary businesses. no more farms, no more fast food, no more construction...

You forgot, NO MORE ILLEGALS...

Do you think some company like home depot would close if the CEO was in jail ? And we don't fast food anyway, most of it is bad for you...maybe the good neighborhood cafes would come back....oh they had good home like cooked meals....farms have been around for hundreds of years and I'm sure they would still be around without illegals....construction by Americans is no problem, just go anywhere the aren't illegals and you will see construction still going on.

No sir, I really don't think it does. If illegals get the right to get a driver's license, with many of them working in argiculture where all products harvested are transported by TRUCK, then I would think it's extremely likely that they would be allowed a class A or B. If it's preposed that they're limited to a class C, it will be labeled discrimination, and if the government is going to be ridiculous enough to give them driver's licenses in the first place, I find them limiting them to a class C to be EXTREMELY unlikely.

what does that have to do with anything?

thats great, but people still eat it. thats why the chains are so popular and successful.. and they would be adversely affected.

Quote:

why havent they come back already? people obviously like fast food.

farms have been around for hundreds of years and I'm sure they would still be around without illegals....
wow. you should educate yourself on the state of farms in america. they already require subsidies.. and they pay their workers below minimum wage. how are they going to survive without illegal immigrants and their cheap labor?

americans demand high wages. it affects development. and although i do think that our construction practices are expediated, at the expense of quality, we will still have some adverse effects undoubtedly.

not if theyre not allowed to get one.

oh well. why would they need a class A or B if it's purely work-related?

oh well. they should do it anyway. its still the solution.

If they're operating a class 8 truck, they will need to have a class A license.

yes. i know. which is why if you deny them A or B licenses, they will be unable to take trucking jobs.
