Yet, if she pushes reform her illegal labor pool would quit doing those jobs for a couple bucks an hour and would be making even more demands of society.

Perhaps it would clear the air..(and please Ms Pelosi) if we could just start calling legal immigrants "Illegals who HAPPEN to have papers".....I mean , we've already stained the image of a whole segment of Americans, haven't we?...by using the odious term, "Legal Hispanics"? So if the HISPANICs have to be 'explained' so as to separate them from the illegals, why should the IMMIGRANTS be immune? Let's explain that SOME of the illegals are "just the same...except that they HAPPENED to arrive legally".

THAT way, NOBODY'S feelings would be hurt....sort of like saying "we're all in this thing together"...right?

excellent point! here are the facts on her business:

part of nancy's fortune is a Napa Valley vineyard worth $25 million that she owns with her husband. The vineyard produces expensive grapes for high-end wines. Napa grapes bring up to $4,000 a ton compared with $300 a ton for, say, San Joaquin grapes.
But Pelosi, winner of the 2003 Cesar Chavez award from the United Farm Workers, hires only nonunion workers and sells these grapes to nonunion wineries.

she has always pandered for the deals that make her family the most money and too bad about american workers.....
