You would be incorrect. The majority of Americans are opposed to illegal immigration. These migrant workers you refer to are illegal aliens and no matter your view that they are hard workers they have no right to work in this country and that is all that matters.

We've supported them for decades, so crap on them. It's time we wake up and demand the stores pull imported products and replace them with USA made products. I'm thinking a march on wal-mart headqtrs might be a good place to start. Might as well start with the largest importer first. As for the illegals not using our social services,by what fantasy lying survey/poll was that? Guess you haven't had to wait in an emergency room behind them? Or pay for your trash pickup that they at the last minute dump theirs in with yours? Providing they don't flat out litter. Should I go on and keep showing how silly your looney left ideas of amnesty are?
Well said! I used to work in a town that had an estimate 50% illegal population. At this particular school, over half of my students had a parent in jail. I had one student who was living out of car trying to live off the slave wages given to his mother who was an illegal. I had illegals who would dump trash on my porch. All of my students received a free lunch and free breakfast. Many of my students were Medicaid recipients despite their illegal status. Their health insurance status was listed in their records for some reason. One of the employees in the unemployment office publicly announced that illegals applying for unemployment is a problem for their office. This particular town had an unemployment rate of 20% before the recession. It is now up to 30%.

Strong at work? You don't know America very well. One can survive here just by having children.

So basically, work ethic is contingent to your nation of origin, and/or your religion of choice?

Seriously - how did you ascertain that "our migrant workers" outperform the folks you mentioned?

'Most effective by far' - what does that even mean? When they reach for a tomato, our migrant workers' hands actually connect with the fruit and pluck, as opposed to those less 'effective' Muslims and Africans in various European countries whose hands miss the fruit and grab the leaves instead?

BTW - well traveled people don't make foolish, sweeping generalizations about any group of people. That's part of the "Well Traveled People Handbook" and is on the first page of Chapter 1.

Fail.

Someone well off enough to travel the World for the most part is so disconnected from most of it they shouldn't even comment. Five star hotels in big Cities won't get you the "real world". Every day some "celebrity" spouts the same crap.

Exactly! They consider themselves champions of the poor even though they know nothing about them and many times it is misplaced compassion none of which is reserved for their fellow Americans who are struggling to survive. It makes them feel so morally superior to the rest of us.

A fact, like the "facts" you come up with? More poverty equals a sound economy?

"I am a well traveled person, and I must say that our migrant workers are the most effective by far compared to others; muslims in germany, africans in france or italy, to name a few".....
