A link below is to a short video that is both sad and infuriating. Itís sad because these illegal day laborers in a city only identified as Lake Forest are so desperate that they chase a U-Haul truck for several blocks looking for work.

There are those that think bringing in millions of impoverished, unskilled and illiterate foreign workers is the best thing possible to do. They like the idea of having such a desperate work force here, they like what it does for labor costs and wages, they like how it has the potential to seriously divide this nation.
