In reality it hurts a lot of working class Americans. Simple economics worked against this guy.

Maybe Americans need to take it down a step? Maybe we are just overpriced?

As you obviously don't know judging from your post not all illegals are from Mexico. Yes, they may look Mexican but they can be from any South American country. You seem to deny the fact that it is simple economics which is driving this guy to lose his company. What does he do for a living? a working class job. Illegal immigration is affecting the working class Americans. You think bill gates is affected? He's actually getting money out of this because illegal immigrants too buy computers.

There are MORE mexican anchor babies than any other!

The fallacy here is that we're competing for our own business. Have you checked out the trade deficit lately? We're not a net exporter of goods. Those jobs that are outsourced are in industries that import the goods back to the US.

How can we continue to be a net importer if the consumer base cannot afford to buy anything?

Just because they are the majority doesn't give you the right to generalize all South Americans as Mexican.

Maybe you should watch this video:

You do realize that the investor class comprises only 5% of the population? In other words, everyone is of the "working class."

Don't kid yourself into thinking any job is safe. Got a masters in computer science? Guess what? So do many Indians and Chinese, who work for a fraction of what you expect to be paid.
