You must mean what can legal immigrants do for the USA----------not what we can do for them? Illegals do not count---------they need to be treated and punished like the insolent criminals they are.

Why are so many under this false assumption? My grandmother was a housekeeper, cook. My mother worked as a dry cleaner clerk and candy striper and took in laundry. All to make ends meet. As single moms, they took what they could without any type of government assistance. My MIL worked as a janitor in a large corporate building and my SIL now works in janitorial at a school. Her previous "career" was as a factory worker until they were replaced by cheaper labor, losing all of said retirement benefits. My BIL, meat packer until replaced again by cheaper labor. Flipping burgers is (was) done by many HS kids as they went to school. Not so anymore due to the massive influx of illegal aliens working under the table taking these jobs so PLEASE stop assuming Americans refuse these jobs. It just is not so.

What does your grandmother's occupations have to do with returning Mexicans?

Please try to stay on topic...

from post #32...Our border fence is starting to do it's job. I've also seen quite a few sob story websites about the plight of the poor Illegal Alien journeys shut down before they can make it across.

From post #33...they need to be treated and punished like the insolent criminals they are.

I responded to another's comment with the redundant claim that Americans refuse jobs illegal aliens take. I guess you should have directed your comments to L&P. And you are right. Topic is how Mexico is now claiming how illegal (here) aliens returning to Mexico are now burdening their system.

Where and what are these jobs you are talking about? Today's stats show another job loss of 20,000. Unemployment is also down as people are no longer qualifying. If they don't qualify, can't get a job of any kind then what are they doing to survive? I bet they would take any job no matter now nasty before starving or homelessness.

I sure would like to see some evidence of these jobs you keep talking about.

More BS propaganda from the illegal alien apologists. For the very few jobs that can't be filled by an American we can use legal immigrants. With our high unemployment rate you'd be hard pressed to find any job that an American won't do.

It is Latino and Proud who claimed that there were jobs that Americans wouldn't do and the reply to him using their grandmother as an example of that erroneous statement wasn't off topic since he started it. So why didn't you tell HIM to not get off topic in the first place?
