Secondly, I am doing research on this topic and came across this website which is why 1 year later (did not know the immigration issue had gone away since) I a dormant post, I need it for my research. Furthermore, the ethnic line meant this (AMERICA or Western Hemisphere relied on the labor of African slaves to work the crops, later the U.S. employed Chinese labor for the railroad, next Japanese for the mines, Irish and Italians during WWI, and Mexican during the Vietnam war to work the fields), now it uses ILLEGAL (which are a lot of ethnic minority races) to do most jobs not wanted or of lower "class. NAFTA does not help mexicans as most of their small businesses and land owners had to closed down as American businesses and products invaded that country without any tariffs on them, while VERY LIMITED Mexican businesses are coming to the U.S. Besides, the Illegal problem is beyond Mexico, yes they make up 68% of them, but it is much larger than them, and if the government (past and present) wanted to do something about it they would have, but they understand the necessity for those types of people to allow this country to maintain their lifestyle. Look at Canada (my country), we are taking in illegal immigrants that crossed illegally from here to become residents because we are moving towards the same type of country the U.S. is and we understand the necessity of this type of labor.
Why illegal alien labor though? Why not legal immigrant labor?

Who knows? I guess because once they got here illegally it was just easier to keep that line of work since they were obviously easier to manipulate. And about sources any sociology book that deals with race (Racial and Ethnic Relations 8th Ed.) is a good source. I did not mean ignorant people by the way, I meant ignorance on the issue, which is the fault of both the liberal and conservative programs on radio and tv

Unfortunately; you are correct. And to run with your ball further: amnesty would be the worst thing for greedy employers since the former illegals can fight back in courts of law if abused.
