This will be great.

College kids can find jobs again and won't have to leave college with $30,000 loans they will not pay off in 10 or more years. The inner city unemployed can be recruited -- they won't have to turn to crime and this will help stop the need for more prisons.

Yes -- even if the prices have to go up in order to pay legal wages and *gasp* even to provide health insurance benefits to entice good employees to come and work, the higher cost of junk food isn't necessarily a bad thing at all. Maybe more families would then sit down to home-cooked meals and see eating out as something to do more occasionally.

Default Undocumented Immigrants work harder

I know people who run restaurants and they tell me the people they suspect to be undocumented workers are much more likely to work harder than the American Citizens or legal immigrants. They are hungry and cause limited trouble. They dread having to go back to American teenagers.

Exploitation of the Mexican people must end.

Slaves were good workers too -- but the USA does not need to build an economy around having unlimited numbers of desperate starving people who will take any kind of abuse.

All this massive immigration results from social injustice and instability in Mexico and only promotes more instability. Fix the problem at the root of the problem -- fix Mexico.

You bleeding hearts need to go down into Mexico and demand justice, the USA cannot just be the dumping grounds for all it's many problems.

If that's the case -- if they think they're too good to ever have to hire Americans -- then they can move their fast food joints down to Mexico where they can hire all the Mexicans they want. They can provide jobs for Mexicans in Mexico.

These greedy businessmen do America no good at all -- they don't provide employee health insurance, they pay subminimal wages. Their employers rely on food stamps, WIC, Emergency Medicaid and housing subsidies. They are not good businesses -- we don't need them here. They aren't providing jobs for Americans and the business owners clearly despise Americans -- so move to Mexico. Good Riddance.

Of the few fast food restaurants in NC that I have been to there are no Mexicans at all. Mostly there are, young white and black M/F, probably HS or college students with a white or black M/F manager.
That is the way it once was in CA back in the 70’s, before the invasion.

No problem filling the positions either.

Good for you!

I've actually worked with illegals continuously for twenty years. As a group, they are no different than any other. Some are good workers. Others are lazy.

Statements such as "undocumented immigrants work harder" show prejudice. I compare it to "whites are [insert superlative]."

Naturally, questioner2!

It is nothing but Slave Labor of the 21st Century.

I expect the economy will experience some sort of readjustment. But this is a good thing.

The 99 cent illegal alien burger is no reason to disenfranchise our own poor who need these jobs to lift themselves up by the bootstraps.
