But you have to realize, to the cheap labor proponents there can never be enough low wage workers brought in to meet their cheap labor needs.

And certain liberals seem to believe it is actually feasible for us to bring in all the 2 billion impoverished people of the world and provide them a nice comfortable life here, all we have to do is plow under the forests and open lands, pave them over and build housing projects. They have no understanding that we need our wilderness areas, that our shrinking farmland is being quickly destroyed to meet the needs of a tremendously fast growing population.

Um, people are moving away from rural areas and into dense urban centers. The wilderness areas are becoming more pronounced because of the urbanization of America. Have you ever driven across the country on the Interstate? There's PLENTY of open land, most of this country is open land.

The United States is the 177th most densly populated nation in the world. That means there are 176 countries where there are more people per square mile than the US. Plus, some of the most densly populated countries in the world are some of the wealthiest per-capita as well: Bahrain, Monaco, Singapore, Japan, The Netherlands, Belgium and the UK.

I'm curious, do you buy fresh fruit at the grocery store or at Whole foods? Because if you go to the Grocery store, you're supporting that cheap labor you're complaining about. If you really want it to end, you and everyone else who hates cheap labor has to boycott the supermarket and shop in those Liberal Hippie Organic Supermarkets...

After all, this is a capitalistic (kinda) society, so the reason why there's cheap labor is that there's a huge demand for it. California employs more cheap laborers than there are people in most of the US states. And trust me, most of those counties are a very deep red and elect the anti-immigration candidates...but then they continue to hire the immigrants you hate so much.

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. 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 and his.

The American taxpayers also pay for increased crime, graffiti and trash clean-up.

I think "High Springs Gator" sums it all up perfectly and I agree with every word. Beautifly stated! The US has many densely populated areas, but, I can't think of one that dosen't have more than it's share of illegals.

Looking at our deepening recession: what is your point?

Many of those jobs that Americans would have turned up their noses at 2-3 years ago are looking real good right about now.

Too: when unscrupulous employers hire those criminals (illegal aliens); the former do not pay for worker's compensation so when one of the latter gets injured---------it is American tax dollars paying for the medical care. Screw that.

As for California: that state is gasping financially and may very well collapse-----------the repercussions could be very ugly especially towards illegal aliens.
