While migrant workers lost jobs faster than Americans, most chose not to go home because the recession in Mexico is even worse.

Papademetriou says U.S. employers will depend on them again.

"The most likely workers to be called back first: Mexicans, those who are here illegally," he says. "And this is going to be very contentious when it happens, very contentious."

no penalties applied for them being here no penalties applied for bringing them here, no penalties for them staying and working here. why not rehire. if americans were concerned they would form and support unions to invoke a level playing field, but there are not, they think rugged individualism networking and advanced degrees can cure anything.

How true. As long as these greedy quislings are given a nod and a wink for hiring illegals, it will continue. They donít care if every citizen in this country is unemployed, as long as they can profit from cheap illegal labor.

Rehire illegal Mexicans? Most criminal employers never fired their illegal Mexicans. And the illegal Mexicans that were fired didn't go back to Mexico because, as future Democratic voters, they've been promised amnesty by hispandering Democratic politicians, namely the community organizer in chief Obama himself.
