We are in construction and so far all we have seen is the quality of work draining right out of the homes, that is NOT a benefit.

I think with the power shift to democrats we will see the following

1) the border fence will never see funding and will fade away

2) Bush and the Dems will vote for amnesty... Bush is absolutely dropping the ball...

3) The borders will continue to bleed


Interesting story I heard today (source Rush Limbaugh)...

"Illegal immigrants entitled to social security"...

Those illegals who have contributed to the system (obviously using fake or stolen social security numbers) should be entitled to withdraw those contributions in the form of social security


Are we nuts... or what

Then that's the fault of the manufacturer, NOT the people being hired by the manufacturer.

American companies have dropped quality in many products since the 1950s in order to increase the bottom line.

Right now, they won't be able to withdraw - Any SS contributions made to false or mismatched numbers go to no one.

I hired a contractor for a job just recently, when he came on the job site with Mexican workers... I ran him and his Mexicans off and hired someone else.

I do not want illegals to collect any Social Security benefits. So, yeah - Only legal citizens should collect social security.

I doubt that such a move (allowing illegals to get social security benefits) would go over well, anyway.
