I think that article is BS in some ways, but in a lot of ways, what he says is true. For instance, when he says that the "average tax-payer" doesn't have enough self-interest in illegal immigration to do something about it. Yea right, we are the ones screaming out against it because we know where the state's and federal goverment's money is going and also where this country is giong. So, I have to disagree with that. He also states that we want things from illegal immigrants. I'm sorry, but I don't hear anyone talking about how they specifically have to have an illegal immigrant do a job or serve up their fast food to them. People are making it seem like we WANTED illegal immigrants to do these jobs. No, they just started coming over, employers realized they could push them around and make them slaves, so we, the average people, had to put up with these illegal immigrants. We didn't ASK for illegal immigration. I don't know anyone who would't rather have a fellow legal citizen or resident working that job for proper wages.

Huh?

Why do all the newbies have to go and resurrect the long dead threads? Can't we just let sleeping dogs lie?
