every day. I was a IRONWORKER, in BUFFALO, New York. Just think of this
1986.....I had worked since 15 yr's old , I was in and out of the work force
before you wre born, I am 72 yr's old . Dont' belittle the AMERICANS that
could handle it and by all mean's don't compare us to you.

LOVE THE U.S.A.
Wow Ironwork that is hard.. and in Buffalo!! My grandfather from Ireland, was a carpenter and built his own house in 1930 he was 26 and did that most his life after he got out of the service. He was also a farmer and raised sheep ( an Irish thing I guess) since my great uncle became a sheep rancher in Montana as well. i was raised on hard work. My Irish ancestors help build the railroad to the west and settled in Montana.

ACTUAL SOLUTION=1. Deport All of Them. 2. Fine employers. 3. Enforcement at all levels(local, state, and national.) 4. An electric fence across the border that shocks the hell out of them.

Get real please!

I agree with fining employers, but the violence you are promoting makes you worse than they. Besides it will never stop the problem, only make it worse.

You need to look at where all that anger is coming from.

If you were able to efficiently (this is a whole separate issue) locate and deport all of the illegal immigrants it would cause an unprecedented economic collapse in the US. What is it that is so threatening about these immigrants? Without them prices would skyrocket and most service industries would collapse.

Personally I think we should eliminate the "physically demanding low paying jobs". Replace them with technology or pay a better wage. Someone did the work before we had a large amount of illegal immigrants.

The sad thing is that most of them are actually relatively good people. We just don't have a need for or the room to handle economic refugees. At the very least don't give free medical care or welfare to illegals, that's crazy.

We give free health care to Americans who refuse to work. Why should we deny the most advanced medical care in the world to working taxpayers who are working illegally.

I don't remember having any economic collapse or service industries collapse either before we were invaded. They come in our country illegally and work for low wages( which takes jobs from our people) and send their money back to Mexico...and leech off our public assistance programs, free medical, free education all at our expense. What is good about that?

They don't take jobs from anyone, they work for wages that others refuse to accept. They keep prices low. Without paying those low wages prices on everything would spiral upward uncontrolled. If you were up against an illegal for the same job, wage, etc. you would get the job. The only thing they are settling for is lower wages, which keeps our prices low.
