We will survive. Mexico is not the only country in the world capable of providing cheap labor for the US.

Quote:
The Mexican Consul General of Phoenix says that Mexican workers are leaving the U.S. in response to heightened immigration enforcement (stepped up raids and tough laws at the municipal level) but that in coming decades, the U.S. will be sorry it pushed out these young, able-bodied workers.

Speaking to the Thunderbird School of Global Management in Arizona, Carlos Flores Vizcarra said demographic estimates show that within 30 years, nearly 77 million Americans will retire: "So the question is, who will take the place of those folks who are retiring?" he asked. Mexico is also facing a shortage of labor in coming decades, Flores added, and the U.S. will not find it easy to lure these workers back.

I find it telling that the comments section has not a single post in support of the product of some opinionate person's cornhole.

and then they woke up.

We'd have to be insane to miss the chaotic state of disrepair they are creating in this country. Is it possible to be that delusional?

Interesting, Benicar . . . no mention of the costs associated with the Crime and Social Services Abuse.

Also, referring to the "young, abled-bodied workers" but forgetting the THUGS, GOONS and ANCHOR BABIES.

This is stage 3 of their pity party/loss of confidence. The raids have them running scared.

STAGE 1: Marching, feeling empowered; making demands and displaying arrogance and delusional sense of entitlement;

STAGE 2: hunkering down to avoid deportation;

STAGE 3: level of self importance has shrunk; fear has set in and they feel the need to convince us we need them.

FUTURE STAGES:

STAGE 4: In hiding underground praying that Obama gets elected and amnesty is passed;

STAGE 5: To be determined at a later date.

We all agreed that you would do a far better job than either of the two losers vying to replace Reagan's generosity by giving what was supposed to be the "last" amnesty.
