Oh, yes, and clothing manufacture. How could I forget? The modern day sweat shops in downtown Los Angeles churning out American Apparel tee shirts. Made in America with undocumented labor.

Let's not forget that the US Chamber of Commerce, the lobbyist group representing the unscrupulous scumbag employers of illegals has spent more money buying Washington politicians than any other lobbyist group, has been paid to keep the spotlight off of the employers of illegals and directed toward illegals bashing. How many employers of illegals have been fined to date?

You do know that when Mexico won its independence from Spain in 1821, it continued to perpetrate the same brutal atrocities upon the Native Americans of the Southwestern United States, California, and Texas as Spain did before them.....right?

You do realize that 85% of Mexico's citizens are Mestizo--meaning that they have at least a measure (if not more) of European (white) blood and that many of the so-called "white" people of the U.S. (me included) share Native American ancestry....right?

Things aren't always as cut and dried as some people might suppose.....

Indians have a dot on their foreheads. Mexicans wear ball caps.

employers got some cheap labor and got the government to pay their benefits. american labor got ripped off and did nothing about it. unions could have made a difference now it will be very hard.
very hard indeed. DC ran an under the table NAFTA for 30 years. "when the police break the law there is no law", billy jack

Is that why 85% of people in Mexico are Blonde and White Skinned...?
Yeah, most Mexicans have European blood in them, but what are you trying to get at with comparing the people of Mexico to the European population of the United States?
How's this immigration related?
You only have a problem with illegals, right?

Don't the Indians speak English? I don't find it hard to distinguish American Indians from Mexicans at all. To me they don't look the same, and you don't find many Indians who can't speak English.

They are not just in the fields. Remember, they are doing any and every job Americans won't do.


That is a lie from the pit of HELL! Let me tell you a little story. My 15 year old son went to get a job at a restaraunt after school and guess what? He couldn't because they would have to pay him minimum wage as opposed to paying the Mexican that works thier 4 bucks! So please enough of this crap that they do the jobs that WE won't. We're not given the opportunity. It's more profitable to hire an "UNDOCUMENTED". That is the politically correct term nowadays, right? What a joke
