This will just hurt our economy with a labor shortage. We need them to do the jobs that Americans won’t do.

So by refusing to give Trump wall money, he has been forced to use less costly methods and we are seeing results.

Trump should just continue what he is doing right?

Do you think small businesses and farms can afford to increase wages. Do you just want to put them out of business?

LOL you guys need to get a pulse on reality. There are fewer jobs and Mexicans are the first to figure this out. The arrest numbers will keep decreasing with the economy and Trump will wave these stats in your face at every corner.

Until he starts cracking down on employers who are employing illegals it's all window dressing for the Trump Thumpers.

Illegals are passing almost at will with the help from coyotes hired by the cartels these days. The cartel gets $4000-$10000 per head. They use the mountains where there are no walls, where are govt has failed.

As jobs become more scarce go by your local home depot and you will see numbers decrease.

I'm not sure, but for Obama, it was before he was sworn in.

So sick of this lying claim by the same posters in here that illegals are only doing jobs that Americans won't do but they never describe what those jobs are and who do they think were doing them before millions of cheap illegals flooded our border? Did they just not get done? Please.......

The only job that most Americans won't do in urban areas in particular is picking crops for a living. It's not a career job and is only seasonal work. For those jobs there are unlimited visas for legal, foreign workers so why would we even need illegal aliens for those jobs? The same liars in here never answer that question. Why is that?

If we truly had a labor shortage for any jobs wouldn't our government increase visas for foreigners to come here legally and do them? It's obvious that we don't have a labor shortage otherwise why wouldn't that be happening?

Illegal aliens also cost mainstream Americans over $100 billion a year for their social costs of which their greedy employers pass on to the taxpayer. They pass no savings on to us they merely pocket the profits from using cheap, illegal labor.

Those who keep repeating these lies need to shut the hell up!

Those aren't typically the ones hiring them. Small farms can't afford any help. That's what family is for.


Everyone else can mow their own lawn.

Beyond any of that, though, celebrating the fall because of gross human rights violations, kids in cages and threats is hardly something to be proud of.
To some, that's not a bug, it's a feature.
