Capitalism? I don't think so. If companies were profiting though ANY OTHER illegal means such as cooking the books, etc. there would be even more outrage and rightfully so. People would be demanding evil ceos go to jail, etc. Breaking laws to make a profit is not capitalism and is not what the framers of this country or capitalism intended.

Sorry but making profits through illegal means is not true capitalism.

Is that so? Well, I happen to know plenty of "Seamuses" who are here illegally and have absolutely no interest in becoming American.

And then again, those are only isolated incidents in which illegals are used to work at fastfood restaurants

Exactly! More Mexicans, legal and illegal, means great food, and I'm all for that.

Speaking of, what would happen to the restaurant industry if there were no illegal immigrants here..

Ever watch Anthony Bordaine's no reservation? The episode where he went to Mexico? Go to New York and look at the fancy restaraunts' back kitchens. You see Mexicans.

Take my advice and if you can: Run for your life!
Run for your life? From San Diego? You've obviously never been. If you have, then "put down the pipe".

are you for reals?

Lets see..east of the 5.. Clairemont, Mira Mesa, Poway, Rancho Bernardo, Rancho Santa Fe

South of the 8,
Sunset Cliffs, Ocean Beach, Eastlake, a bunch of nice residential areas.

Are you even from San Diego?

Even the bad neighborhoods are nothing like LA.

Exactly. Also,if ibarrio agreed, then s/he would not routinely support all of the arguments for why people should be rewarded for coming here illegally. I think the goal is simply to twist this into illegal immigration is solely due to big business and illegals have no responsibility in this.
