Yeah send them all back!! if we roll up our sleeves and start doing our own labor for $7/hr i'm pretty sure they will go back because lack of work.. Oh I forgot we don't want to wash dishes,roof houses,pour concrete, do construction work or any service work.... someone else will do it-because we feel we are above those type jobs... P.S. illegal immigrants didn't take all the jobs- its called outsourcing by greedy U.S. corporations. Why do you think (Hadji) answers when you call your Visa card...

I've noticed that the general contractors are mostly white, yet then whine about illegals but they sure line their pockets with that money

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
I see my sarcasm had an effect. I was JOKING! Settle down....you and I are on the same page.

Yeah i know it wouldn't be $7/hr if they all left,It would be 3x's more an hr do you really want to pay that? just think our government did this to the work force, its pretty smart, example $20/hr construction worker.. if I find someone to work for $8/hr for the same work. then i'm making $12 profit/hr. I do this for years right,the work force knows this wage, so when someone wants to work $8 is what I pay. So if i pay $2 more they think its a miracle. So from $20/hr to $10/hr and I still make profit.. Nice huh? thank our government for their (recesion plan) at the end of the day they look like heroes for giving us table scraps...

He didn't have to tell me, I was there with him. Btw, my son had placed numerous applications with many companies and he's not into skateboards, he wants a car
