27% of the MDs in the US are women. Please tell them that illegal alien women often work 'much harder' than they do.

I guess 10 years ago, no one was having their landscaping done; no one was building houses; no one was cleaning hotels and motels; no one was working in the fast food joints! Those must have been just robots working in the fast food joints, doing construction, doing landscaping, 10 years ago...no one will EVER convince me that we NEED these people. NEVER. Big business needs them; I'd gladly pay more for goods and services, knowing that in doing so I was, in some small way, enabling another American family to get ahead.
Well, by golly, go grab some people and start mowing my damn lawn
and picking my tomatoes mister!

I cut my own lawn. You know saves me a few bucks. How about you do your own, instead of having illegals to do it.

I work very hard for what I have. My husband breaks his butt as well, so we can have the necessities to survive.

again, I will never ever agree to having illegals suck us dry.

Well, since it doesn't bother me why don't some of you who
feel so strongly start testing out your theory. You know
start a landscaping business.... advertise it American run and
American employed and see how your business will do.
If you are right about so many people being sick of it you'll
make a fortune. If you're wrong you wouldn't be out too much.
Maybe a newspaper ad cost. If you want to take America back
then you need to fight for those jobs American's let slide away.

My kids do this, but with the local school paper. They do really well, saved up enough for a new xbox 360 and a few games. They also wash cars and clean up dog doo and walk them as well.

Well, if there were more people like your kids then there wouldn't be
as much of a need for employers to hire illegals. I actually mow
my own back yard and do all my landscaping except the front which
is paid for by my condo association and done by hispanics... legal
I have no idea. Hard working...very. American's have many choices
on jobs. Many...in this forum someone said if it was a matter of
putting food on the table or letting their family starve they would take
any job. That's the problem... for most American's it would take
that choice to go pick tomatoes... I'm sorry but American's are spoiled
on the whole (I'm including myself) and with so many choices who
can blame them. How can you solve that problem when everyone
else is like... well, I'm working, or I have kids, but SOMEONE American
ought to be doing the landscaping or housekeeping or picking the tomaotes.
Just not me... we're already working hard at what we do which is not
any of the above.

Do you engage the old gray matter before you type? Or is that not a cultural tradition?

Actually given a chance I know alot of kids that would do the work. My sons cub scout troop does it, my oldest son does it for part time work on top of the full time job and college. I think alot of people are blind to what alot of kids will do, they just assume they wouldnt do the work,probably because they arent doing many of those jobs today, illegals are. Kids need to be giving the chance before people go around generalizing them. I picked strawberries for two summers before I was told I wasnt needed, they got "others" to do it for less. heck I was only earning 2.00 a pallet!!
