You think people born in Developed (we don't used 1st world, 3rd world anymore) are better than people in developing countries, who don't speak english?
Hmmmm.

And people in Arizona say it has nothing to do with race and nationality. Yea right!
You can adopt someone from another Nation just as poor and tired as you would like. Me? Not so much.

This country DOES bring from all over the world, look at Haiti right now. This latest influx from SOB came here uninvited and blatantly rape all of our systems, then demand we reward them for it. There is a reason why migration to this country is limited, to replenish so we can provide for all needing it in this country. I have no respect for those who have come here illegally then scream they have American "rights" and even less respect for those who promote it. Insanity.

I don't think people from first world nations are looking to pick fruit in the central valley of California for less than minimum wage.

Perhaps not but for those jobs we have unlimited visas for LEGAL immigrants. Only 2% of the workforce are ag workers. Are you trying to claim that illegal aliens aren't doing construction jobs, lanscaping jobs, restaurants jobs, etc. Yes, these are all jobs that Americans will do and always have done until the arrival of cheap illegal labor.
