Maybe we can whack a few narcos as well.
That does happen in Mexico, if the people try to run a military checkpoint, they are shot.

If finally given the opportunity, would you yourself use force to finally drive the invaders and their spawn out of our land for good?
Would it be ok if this liberal said "F##K YEAH I would fight against illegals!"?

It would make more sense for American growers to continue to turn to mechanization to harvest their crops. Even though there are crops that are more difficult to harvest with machinary, the majority of our crops can be harvested this way.

Thank you.

Memo to the illegal alien apologists: let the Mexican way of doing things serve as a warning.

If mechanization was cost effective don’t you think farmers would have done this already? Why give farmers so little credit? Agriculture is about the only efficient industry we have left in America. Farmers use migrant workers to pick the fruits and vegetables that are not conducive to mechanization.

About 2-3% of illegals are involved in agriculture. So; there is no 'need' for the remaining 97% of the above--------especially in this recession.
