If it's above minimum wage, no reason why an American shouldn't do it. But as always..."I won't work for no $8 and hour...you must be crazy!". "Me...work in Burger King? You must be out of your mind!". I hear it all the time.

Iím not sure who the ďyouĒ is who needs to return to school and get an education, but I have two degrees. I think that should be sufficient.

I already made my point. Your point has been repeated a lot. But the way you said it was...well dramatic. Thanks for posting that. We can disagree, but still be friends. I have tons of Republican "Conservative" friends and you should hear the arguments we get into...then we end it with beer and jokes. No hard feelings.

We are being victimized by the the very corporations that our past generations built on their backs; we are being victimized by the greedy, corrupt politicians on both sides of the political aisle, along with their corporate masters; our tax dollars, sovereignty and way of life and childrens' futures is being raped, pillaged and destroyed by illegal aliens. Contrary to what you may believe, this is not a game. We are not playing victims, we are indeed being victimized by all of the aforementioned.
Absolutely! We are forced to support millions of foreigners who have no right to be here. If that isnít victimization, then someone please tell me what is.

Excellent...so I doubt you are at Home Depot looking and waiting to be pick up for worked. Remember one of the arguments here is that illegals are bad for our country because most of them don't have more than "a 5th grade education".

Actually no. The people I associate with are family members, co-workers and school buddies. None of them happen to be Illegal. But that's besides the point anyway.
I can't tell who is legal or illegal anyway. Can you?

Your assumption that I am on a public message board in the hopes of acquiring a new "friend" is also well . . dramatic. Not only do I detest the taste of beer, my friendships are an acquired taste as well and you don't tingle my taste buds. No hard feelings taken.

I may not have to compete against illegals, but there are plenty of citizens who do. I donít expect you to empathize with your so-called fellow Americans, because you have clearly stated your allegiance.

Probably not but what about those American handymen and construction workers that are waiting for jobs in their legal places of business but didn't get them because these illegal aliens were waiting outside of Home Deport to work cheaper and illegally? Yes, those that hire them are just as guilty also.
