And what's going to happen to these poultry plants for hiring law breakers? Probably nothing. Americans should be pissed at these companies just as much as the illegals.

The reason you can't find a job is because your to lazy to go find one. You probably expect the government to throw one at you and easily get accepted. Illegals get the jobs and keep them because there good at doing them. So don't trip mijo.

I once did some repairs at a beef jerky plant in Vernon, Ca some time ago. It was not that bad of a place until I walked past the trash compactors and took a big sniff of rotting beef.

There were nothing but Hispanics and all I herd was Spanish but then again, it was difficult to say who might be an illegal because the demographics of Los Angeles, Ca is by a majority Hispanic to begin with.

Just look at Alabama... some law passed and people left... I guess if you're illegal

The reality is the vast majority of anchor babies won't work in these type of places... why when they can get on government assistance.

I the jobs the hispanics are doing at the poultry plants are jobs that nobody else wants then let the poultry plants close since nobody wants to work there other than illegal immigrants it wont hurt the unemployment rate.

Oh i forgot to post this:

Obama sucks, impeach obama, vote for anyone other than obama!!!!!!!!!!

That's just an excuse. Americans are more than willing to do those jobs and others.

The line of applicants hoping to fill jobs vacated by undocumented workers taken away by immigration agents at the Swift & Co. meat-processing plant earlier this week was out the door Thursday. Among them was Derrick Stegall, who carefully filled out paperwork he hoped would get him an interview and eventually land him a job as a slaughterer...

Greg Bonifacio heard about the job openings on television and brought his passport, his Colorado driver's license, his Social Security card and even a color photograph of himself as a young Naval officer to prove his military service.

"I don't want to hassle with any identification problems because of my last name," said Bonifacio, a 59- year-old Thornton resident of Filipino heritage...Bonifacio was hoping to get a job in production or fabrication. So was Nathan Korgan, a former construction worker whose company closed and moved to California.

http://www.rightsidenews.com/200904114344/bor...

Hundreds of American workers immediately applied to fill the 28 jobs left vacant by the arrest of illegal alien workers at the Yamato Engine Specialists Company in the town about 20 miles from the Canadian border.

Nationwide, an estimated 7.7 million U.S. jobs are now held by illegal aliens. In case after case in which enforcement actions have removed illegal workers, legal workers have almost immediately lined up to fill the vacancies. American DO want these jobs. These are jobs that can and should be available to U.S. workers at a time of rising unemployment, without spending $800 billion.

Jobs Americans Wonít Do? A Detailed Look At Immigrant Employment By Occupation

This analysis tests the often-made argument that immigrants only do jobs Americans donít want. If the argument is correct, there should be occupations comprised entirely or almost entirely of immigrants. But Census Bureau data collected from 2005 to 2007, which allow for very detailed analysis, show that even before the recession there were only a tiny number of majority-immigrant occupations.
Among the findings:

* Of the 465 civilian occupations, only four are majority immigrant. These four occupations account for less than 1 percent of the total U.S. workforce. Moreover, native-born Americans comprise 47 percent of workers in these occupations.

* Many jobs often thought to be overwhelmingly immigrant are in fact majority native-born:
o Maids and housekeepers: 55 percent native-born
o Taxi drivers and chauffeurs: 58 percent native-born
o Butchers and meat processors: 63 percent native-born
o Grounds maintenance workers: 65 percent native-born
o Construction laborers: 65 percent native-born
o Porters, bellhops, and concierges: 71 percent native-born
o Janitors: 75 percent native-born

* There are 93 occupations in which 20 percent or more of workers are immigrants. These high-immigrant occupations are primarily, but not exclusively, lower-wage jobs that require relatively little formal education.

* There are 23.6 million natives in these high-immigrant occupations (20 percent or more immigrant). These occupations include 19 percent of all native workers.

* Most natives do not face significant job competition from immigrants; however, those who do tend to be less-educated and poorer than those who face relatively little competition from immigrants.

* In high-immigrant occupations, 57 percent of natives have no more than a high school education. In occupations that are less than 20 percent immigrant, 35 percent of natives have no more than a high school education. And in occupations that are less than 10 percent immigrant, only 26 percent of natives have no more than a high school education.

* In high-immigrant occupations the average wages and salary for natives is one-fourth lower than in occupations that are less than 20 percent immigrant.

* Some may believe that natives in high-immigrant occupations are older and that few young natives are willing to do that kind of work. But 33 percent of natives in these occupations are age 30 or younger. In occupations that are less than 20 percent immigrant, 28 percent of natives are 30 or younger.

* It is worth remembering that not all high-immigrant occupations are lower-skilled and lower-wage. For example, 44 percent of medical scientists are immigrants, as are 34 percent of software engineers, 27 percent of physicians, and 25 percent of chemists.

* It is also worth noting that a number of politically important groups tend to face very little job competition from immigrants. For example, just 10 percent of reporters are immigrants, as are only 6 percent of lawyers and judges and 3 percent of farmers and ranchers.

Lazy?
The demographics of a region normally coincide with those using social services. Take for example the Appalachian regions of the USA. By a majority it's all Anglo and that majority coincides with the use of social services as well. On a per capita basis Whites dominate the welfare doles. Goto California where the Hispanics are just about equal with Anglos in population and you'll see that demographics coincide with the use of social services accordingly.

Regarding your point about people being lazy amounts to nothing more than ignorance.

Based on the 2006 TOTAL population of each respective race in the United States, it is:

37.8% white*(37.8% of the white population is on welfare)

27.78% black*(27.78% of the black population is on welfare)

11.47% Hispanic***(11.47% of the Hispanic population is on welfare)

Another way to look at this data is based on the total number of people who receive welfare. It is:

39% white 11,661,000 of 29,900,000 recipients

38% black 11,362,000 of 29,900,000

17% Hispanic 5,083,000 of 29,900,000
