I have to add that I will also be very happy when even green card holders are out of work. I would like to see no immigration for jobs. There is no reason that Americans can't do the work. I don't care if the company does have to pay a living wage. It is our country first.

In defense of the green card crowd: at least they tried to do things the right way----------unlike illegal aliens.

Yes, they did and I do commend them for that, but I still would like to see them gone. Americans are the one who should be doing any and all jobs in this country.

True, I commend them for that, but we MUST look out for our own. Once things settle down and we're back on track and they keep thier acts strait, then we allow them to return to thier jobs on this side of the border. Until them, they must be patient and if they attempt to cross the border illegally, then thier green cards are pulled foreever.

I saw something that made me smile the other day. Something looked out of place at Home Depot. There was some guy about 6-5 standing among the usuals and I noticed he had a small sign saying he was an out of work Citizen. A truck pulled up and they all flocked to it but the guy pointed out the American and gave him the job! It was AWESOME.

I wonder if that would work for me. My sign would say "Born in SC, speak English. Hire a US Citizen and sleep great 2nite." Being 6'4, they could not miss me.
