CHEAP LABOR?
Isn’t that what the whole immigration issue is about?
Business doesn’t want to pay a decent wage.
Consumers don’t want expensive produce]
Government will tell you Americans don’t want the jobs.
But the bottom line is cheap labor. The phrase “cheap labor” is a myth, a farce, and a lie. There is no such thing as “cheap labor.”
]Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children. He takes a job for $5.00 or 6.00/hour. At that wage, with six dependents, he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year, if he files an Income Tax Return! ………he gets an “earned income credit” of up to $3,200 free.
*He qualifies for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent.
*He qualifies for food stamps.
*He qualifies for free (no deductible, no co-pay) health care.
*His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school.
*He requires bilingual teachers and books
*He qualifies for relief from high energy bills.
*If they are or become, aged, blind or disabled, they qualify for SSI (Social Security Income) Once qualified for SSI they can qualify for Medicare. All of this is at (our) taxpayer’s expense.
*He doesn’t worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance.
*Taxpayers provide Spanish language signs, bulletins and printed material.
*He and his family receive the equivalent of $20.00 to $30.00/hour in benefits.
Working Americans are lucky to have $5.00 or $6.00/hour left after paying their bills plus his own. The American taxpayers also pay for increased crime, graffiti and trash clean-up.
Cheap labor? YEAH RIGHT! Wake up people. THESE ARE THE QUESTIONS WE SHOULD BE ADDRESSING TO THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES FOR EITHER PARTY AND WHEN THEY LIE TO US AND DON’T DO AS THEY SAY, WE SHOULD REPLACE THEM AT ONCE!’

It's only cheap for the employers of illegals. Everyone else pays the difference.

It's not the "preznit" that really has the say in these things. Obviously, all of these things are being solved by individual states now, since the federal government (all branches) has no balls.

Illegal immigrants don't come cheap? Well, they sure come cheap enough for Mitt Romney to hire them to work on his plantation.

they are cheap to him. It is the rest of us who have to shoulder the bill. Since you live in DC, you should see Seven Corners and Bailey's Crossroads in VA to see how we are paying for it.

For the umpteenth time, Mitt Romney didn't hire illegal aliens. He hired a landscaping company. The landscaping company hired the illegals. Here in America we don't go running out of our kitchens demanding documentation of citizenship from people who look Hispanic or speak a different language.

And I don't even LIKE Romney, but this accusation really needs to be put to rest.

...apologists must think there's some distinction other people just can't see.

The Mitt was outed, he knew there were illegals working for him and he didn't do anything about it till it was publicized.

It wasn't until after it was publicized that he decided, (or maybe his handlers told him to), take a stand.

Before that, ....nothing. He was even quoted as saying it wasn't his responsibility...

As someone who is STRONGLY anti-illegal immigration, I should probably be riding front and center to castigate Mitt for his faux pas at the Governor's Mansion, especially considering that he's not even 'my' candidate, but I think it's important to be able to see the forest AND the trees.

Let's say, for instance, that Mitt ran out to the yard demanding to see proof of citizenship from his Spanish-speaking landscape crew. Can you imagine how fast he'd have been hit with a civil rights suit? My guess is that you'd be calling for his head, also.

Which makes him "Damned if he did, damned if he didn't."

Section 8 is clear:CHA determines eligibility based on U.S. citizenship or eligible immigration status.

In NC, You qualify for Health Insurance not only because you are under a certain income but you also need to have a valid Social Security number or have an eligible immigration status.

There is NOT an “earned income credit” when you don't have a valid Social Security number.

Free meals at school... I mean come on, they are CHILDREN! Did your parents teached you anything!
