The biggest argument for amnesty is that the illegals are doing jobs Americans won't do. My question is; once they all are legalized and become Americans, why would they continue to do those jobs? They, then will be taking jobs Americans will do, and require a whole new wave of illegals to do those ****ty jobs again. This system we got has gotta change. The President and Capitalists use the term "pro growth" as code word for more and more and more people as the only way to grow our economy. What's wrong with a steady state economy, and cheap labor won't always be around, so then what, robots? We won't have enough people around doing the crappy job of assembling the robots, so then we'll have robots making robots and that's where it gets dangerous.

This is a question I asked myself-- which is why I am not for amnesty anymore. It doesn't make sense for them to stay at their work place if they can get a better job that is under the minimum wage law.

italians on LI get insignificant pay?

No way NJ has all the poor italians

Yoos guys have all the moneyed mob-up italians

I do not think it is wrong to bring in people to do jobs no one wants, but it has to be controlled

there are only so many undesirable jobs, and I doubt most of the illegals are working those

instead lots of them just stay in their nabes and open up a business

Just drive through an illegal immigrant nabe, you will see

I doubt any gringos own and operate those business, well maybe some are, but a lot are not

now not everyone of those business owners is illegal either

Think of illegal workers as temporary staff employees. Once the work ends time to go home.
