If they leave it won't be on their backs anymore. They do absolutely nothing good for me. I think you have no idea how angry American citizens are about this issue. If you did you would hush.

The contractors and the business owners needing the work and the homeowners. The people who want the work done at a lower cost. The people who don't think about the fact that skilled labor actually requires skilled labor. And so on and so forth.

Again, do you know anyone in the construction industry? Ask them how they have been impacted. Maybe your job will be next?

Anyone who uses the product. We are also paying for their housing, food and medical through taxes? How many taxes are these workers paying? How does the money sent back to their country help us. NOT AT ALL!

It's a race to the bottom. All that cheap labor and products have consequences.

Then you and other Liberals should put their money where their mouths are at and pony up the cash to pay for this.

Talk is cheap!

I have read up. That is why I am furious at the invasion of our country and a government that is doing nothing to stop it. Going into a country in an illegal hostile manner is an invasion of that country. These people are invaders and should be treated like invaders instead of encouraging it to happen. They need to be loaded up and deported. Working American citizens have had enough.

I don't don't know how to answer your question. Might be to research how much aid we give these countries and get tough with them.
