So the way to slow down illegal immigration is a prolonged recession. I guess the next step is a full blown depression. That will stop illegal immigration completely.

Don't believe this for one second!
First of all, they are saying there were 7 million illegal aliens, and it is now down to 6.5 million. You know, if they hadn't exaggerated this part, then perhaps I would have given some credence to the rest of the article. This figure must be an annual border crossing, surely they don't think we are stupid enough to believe that there are only 6.5 to 7 million illegal aliens in America! There are that many from the state of Jalisco alone!!!

They are still trying to ram the NY Times article down our throats! Until we see deserted street corners at Lowes's Home Depot, etc., they are still here!!! AND STILL COMING...DEMANDING THEIR "RIGHTS!!"

ps, And they ain't going anywhere until we make 'em! Illegal aliens mexicans in particular feel that if they have not been caught, and their child is in school and they are on Section 8, then they believe they have set down roots and have a right to be here! NOT!

I'd like to know the real truth ... somehow I get the feeling it's none of my business and none of us will ever really know. Illegal seems to be the "IN" THING these days. We get one lie after another. My question is ... who's afraid of what?"

Well it would be about time, but I don't buy this conveniently timed report especially in light of the fact that it comes from none other than the Pew Center.

Hello...it's funded largely by George Soros. That in itself is reason to question the validity of the findings.

BULL SHEET!!!!!
Any savings a home builder gets from using cheap illegal labor is not passed on to the customer. The builder/contractor pockets those. In addition the customer usually ends up with a crappy home that will need very expensive repairs. Plus the customer will get screwed over on his/her taxes which go to providing the illegal labor with health care and other services. There is no advantage to the the customer/consumer for businesses to use illegal labor.

I had started to respond to you but there was a power outage & I don't know what happened to my message. I was starting to say that when I first opened my account, I thought of George Soros as the social assassin with all his misinformation & misguided agenda, and his vast wealth helps him get his puppets into office. So I used a photo from one that was altered during Glen Beck's rampage against him. It showed him as Darth Sidious and was titled "Darth Soros".

I had it as an icon for all of 30 minutes because it attracted the wrong type of responses (nothing on point but just bashing me by Libs). When my friend opened his account the following week, I offered it to him. We thought it would be funny especially since his moniker contained the word Darth in it (Darth Troll). Heck, he didn't keep it up as an avatar long either. The only thing it attracted were two problematic trolls on his 2nd day posting comments. His girlfriend found him a few new options as avatars.

The moral of the story is don't ever use anything relating to George Soros as an avatar because he's got too many groupies that worship him and don't take kindly to anything portraying him as evil.:)

I do not collect any freebies as you call them. My brother and I work each and every day. We build excellent homes. We help keep the cost of a new home low for americans. Most undocumented workers cannot afford a new home like americans.
