I certainly didn't see any numbers to back up your opinion.

As for Farmers complaining maybe if you read the news ( maybe if you could read) you'd know farm states had introduced legislation to allow for a farm worker exception so that farms could keep prices low. Barbara Boxer and one of her Republican counterparts introduced this last week. Its not whether I can afford the produce, its how it affects the economy in general when food prices rise (hint did you ever hear the term inflation?).

You actually proved my point its the lower class and the less educated as well as the politicans who cater to them- that complain about illegals.

IF it werent racism how come NONE OF YOU have bitched about all the Canadians who come here and never keep up the paperwork? Europeans come here illegally as well.
Marks may be correct about Fear but because there is no evidence that illegal mexicans commit more crimes than others what could he be fearing ( that his minimum wage job will be taken over by an illegal who will work harder and ***** less)?

Mexico doesnt have the resources we do to ever become as wealthy. No one is going to give them Texas back with all the oil, natural gas and farming areas.

I will let your vile and insulting post stand just as it is for all to read.

I have attempted to verify the 51% number in an official publication. I have been unable to do so. The 2005 census states 41% but that is in Phoenix city limits. In the greater Maricopa County area - which is "Phoenix" to the outside world roughly 28% identify themselves as Hispanic. And that includes the higher Phoenix city numbers. In the burbs, many cities have 20% or less. Anyhow, the existence of a large Hispanic percentage provides little useful information in itself. More meaningful would be the percentage of illegal, uneducated, unskilled, low-paid workers, people on public assistance, single parent households, persons on probation, and other reliable markers of social distress. Unfortunately, all of those have increased as well in the past ten years. I don't think the degradation in quality of life here can be explained simply by increases in the percentage of Hispanics. More likely, it has to do with the increases in population in general.
