But who in here hates "immigrants"?

When you said “we” are providing your cheap labor, etc, I’m sorry, but Hispanic-Americans do not come to mind.

Part of the problem is the deliberate conflation of legal and illegal. You do the Hispanic community a grave disservice by assigning the same status to them as illegal aliens. They are not the same.
Hispanic Americans, along with Blacks are almost neck and neck for the poorest segment of the population. This also includes legal Hispanics (about 20% of Hispanics are illegal...the VAST majority of Hispanics are legal).

Clearly Blacks and Hispanics provide "cheap labor".
