I would have to say that in general, you need to read up on what you decide to dispute.

Learning new skills?? I guess it is a skill to cross a border illegally and then work for table scraps. I guess that takes real talent. What corporations? Where do these workers live? It's not that corporations canít find enough talent in the U.S., the corporations do not want to pay what should rightfully be paid to an American worker.



It is extremely naive of you to think that the criminal immigrants that are crossing the border are doing America and most importantly American citizens any good. These people are uneducated peasants who will undercut every American just to get work. It is also naive of you to think that these people are not taking jobs from Americans. Who did they replace? I guess new jobs that didnt exist before the criminal immigrants crossed the border appeared at the same time they did. I have this last thing to say to you Humane Humanoid, If all of the illegals were deported and the Federal Government Revoked the Free Trade Act what do you think would happen? You act as if America would shut down without your criminal horde. It would not, the economy would take a hit but it would eventually work itself out.
Excellent rebuttal. It's always good to hear the truth!

This amnesty wants to add 400k guest workers per year.
Why does America need more uneducated workers?
Are uneducated HS dropouts this valuable?
If these uneducated workers are so great then why wouldnít Mexico want to keep them in Mexico?

From what I have seen coming out of our public schools we are producing more than enough uneducated HS graduates, we donít need increase the uneducated by bringing in more HS dropouts. Especially ones that donít speak English.

Default So interesting

One day in 1999 I was in my house in South America, and got a call from a big American company inviting me to come to work (and live) in the US under an H1 visa for over 100k/year. Five years and $10k later I got my green card.
Today, despite the economy, the company is still struggling to find someone with my skills. I can give details if someone is interested.

Of course, I have huge respect for this country, even though sometimes a have a hard time understanding the way some folks think.

For example, back in 1999, nobody would mention anything about immigration. Why now? Let me say what I think: someone, besides us, has to be blamed for our (as a tax payer I am including myself) failure. We are "stuck in Iraq" for nothing, we can't find Bin Laden, we can't solve our health care system. Who are we going to blame?

We have to get serious about the future of this country. To deny 12 millions people the chance to pay the taxes and then blame them for not doing is non-sense. Truly, I am not afraid to lose my job to those who cross the border illegally. It would take more than that. Also, I don't want the job they take. Just a few thoughts. Thanks.

You went through the procedure. Some people don't. They should not be rewarded if they deliberately evade the procedure, regardless of the circumstances, unless there is an asylum basis.
