A study, conducted by the Washington Post and Mexican newspaper Reforma, found “more than 6 in 10 Mexicans say migrants are a burden on their country because they take jobs and benefits that should belong to Mexicans.”

Additionally, more than half of the those same Mexican citizens are in favor of deporting migrants living in the country illegally.

Mexicans share our view of illegals.

The general fertility rate dropped to the lowest rate since the United States Centre for Disease Control started keeping records in 1909: to 60.3 births per 1,000 women aged between 15 and 44. The total fertility rate, meanwhile, which estimates the average number of children a woman could expect to have over her lifetime at current birth rates for each age, at 1.76 births per woman, is below the “replacement rate” for fertility. That is the level that keeps populations stable (about 2.1 children per woman). And it is a considerable drop from a decade earlier, when the rate was 2.12 births per woman." (my bold)


In about 25 years of no migration and no births ... no one will look back at Trump and understand, what happened, they will look to the new POTUS and blame them.
What deep decline?? You mean only the economically well off people? Because I dont see poor people just stopping at one? Many have atleast a quarter dozen.

Then raise the wages. It's really that simple. Hiring illegal aliens is unacceptable and against the law.

I so agree with you. Here we are killing off our own babies via abortion of which liberals are ok with but yet they demand that we keep importing more immigrants both legal and illegal. Makes no sense at all.

We don't need to breed at replacement levels anyway. A smaller population would be much healthier and prosporous for us all. We don't need all of these fast food restaurant chains, etc. on every corner that aren't jobs that one can make a living at which creates a demand for more cheap "immigrants". They end up subsidizing their cheap wages via our taxes, deplete our natural and social resources and create overcrowded conditions everywhere.

I do disagree with you about the wall though. Where the good physical barriers have been erected already they have been 90% effective in deterring illegal entry. Criminals and terrorists aren't looking for jobs and unless we deny the children of illegal aliens our birthright citizenship they will still come for the benefits from that. E-verify I'm all for though but better to stop them from getting into our country in the first place where they are much harder to weed out and more expensive to do so.

They mean, there is a lack of people to exploit.
They mean we need more people to vote for the Left.


A labor shortage is essentially impossible, by definition. If you can't find a worker at the rate you're willing to pay, it's a job that doesn't make sense economically.

We agree. Are you as scared of that as I am?

Many are just shifting work. 3 near me are hiring. One is down 16 people even after eliminating overnight stocking.

That plant got raided 4 times over an 8 year period.
Each and every time they were back up and running within a week.
Ubermensch are not expected to follow the law.

I agree that the employers need to be held legally accountable as well.

Because they're not paying the market rate.

The view at the C level is that the ONLY thing that matters as far as pay is C level. Everything else must be reduced if not removed.

I was just watching a new's program and a Homeland Security person said that they are investigating the employers for "knowingly" hiring illegal aliens and if found guilty of it they will be prosecuted. Investigations take time but of course the pro-illegals have their pitchforks ready to plunge into the employers immediately before an investigation takes place and all the while crying about the illegals being separated from their families. Typical! Once again, those who have children were released to go back to their families right after being processed with orders to return for their court dates.
