For years they have been breaking the law, keeping wages low by using illegal labor, all while receiving tax breaks and subsidizes and now they want special laws passed so they can continue to exploit their labor.

Americans want to be paid enough money so that they can pay for their own children and not just dump them onto the public welfare.

Some say that these migrant workers save all Americans money on food because they work for cheap but the truth of the matter is the only one benefiting on cheap labor is the one who hires them. The migrant workers get off work, go home, eat, drink and make babies. They cannot afford a doctor and have no insurance so they dump the delivery costs onto all Americans. Then they cannot afford to feed those children so they run to the social services demanding that all Americans subsidize their children's food, clothing, housing and education.

Farmers need to hire American citizens and pay a living wage even if it means adding a few cents to the cost of a loaf of bread.

It's time to start putting people who hire illegals into prison because they are robbing all Americans.

Actually the US has the 3rd highest GDP per capita in the world. Not one Latina American country is in the top twenty.

American workers dont want that kind of job because its a hardwork. Who will work in the farm if not for these undocumented immigrants who only want to work here and help their families just like the rest of us.

You won't find any undocumented foreigners working on a REAL American Farm. American made tools and big German brains replaced slaves long ago.

The best weed is grown indoors in the USA and is harvested by white men with big brains and clean hands. Sure, you will pay a lot more ...but it's well worth the price.

Weed coming up from south of the border is grown in huge clearings by dirty Mexicans who urinate and defecate on the plants. When they harvest the plants with their stinking sweaty bodies they just smash them up sticks, seeds and all into a hard brick of choke and puke that stinks worst than the clothes they wear and isn't worth smoking. Sure, it's cheap ... but you get what you pay for.

Made by American's who take pride in what they do still means something to those of us who appreciate quality.

Being Latino doesn't mean undocumented. Most of the Latinos and Hispanics that I know are not only citizens, but they are military veterans as well.
