If they don't want to work cut the benefits and drug test them and then we'll see some attitudes change.

You're right why should the professional bums work when everything is handed to them on a platter, if you've been on the welfare rolls more than a year, drug tests should be the norm, or better yet the lay around bums can work for their check by cleaning up the litter on the streets and parks, god knows there is enough of it.

Yep, I agree. Get Micheal Dell out there working; and George W Bush too, how about the CEO of Exxon and Walmart. How about El Paso NG, PNM, etc. Those corporations get so much coporate welfare, its ridiculous. Put those spongers to work. Whats good for the goose, good for the gander!

Most American kids are too wraped up in iphones and MTV to do an honest hour's work.

We cannot open another door to let illegals intot his country. Everyone knows that once their work visas run out they will simply hide within the hispanic community and never leave unless theya re arrested and deported. We need to say NO to allowing any illegal here. Put LEGAL USA workers to work first and slam the door on La Raza.

Ok-fall all of you that are uneducated in history,the civil corps where created during the depression to give unemployed people jobs, not money but the opertunity to work to get money. Fast forward to today-why work when the government will give you everything for free.
So in comparison-the US rose out of the depression a great country
The future- a destroyed country of beggers that flood the country for their entiltlments ,while the goverment money hold out.
Social programs and entiltlments did not exist before the 1960's.you either worked to get money of starved on a street corner pan handling.

I hope Mister Jamie Campos has a plan to get these folks back home once the harvest season is over. Once they get a taste of the USA it will be real hard to drag their (a)ss back across the border homebound. So what is your home again plan Mr.Campos ? Have them microchiped like I was required to do with my 2 chihuahua's so The USA can find their owners in Mexico.
