Take a drive up the 101 Freeway North in California, and you'll notice something striking.

I don't know why but that produce always tastes better when it's picked by a gringo. Maybe that's because gringos wash their hands. Nobody would mind paying a little extra for the better tasting, gringo picked produce.

Hispanic Youth Dropping Out of U.S. Schools
High school dropout rates are a key performance measure for the American
education system. This report shows that the standard method for calculating
the dropout rate leads to a distorted picture of the status of Hispanic
students in U.S. schools.
In recent years an influx of young immigrants, who left school before coming
to the United States, has swollen the ranks of those counted as Hispanic
dropouts. Those youth present long-term policy challenges in language and
employment training, but their level of school completion does not reflect
the quality of U.S. schools or of Latino achievement in those schools.
Rather their presence reflects immigration and labor force trends.
Focusing on data for Hispanics who have dropped out of U.S. schools before
completing high school reveals a problem that is quite grave and that has
serious long-term implications for the education system, Latino communities
and the nation as a whole. However, the numbers in the report show that the
problem is not as bad as is commonly thought. Counting only Latinos who
dropped out after engaging the American education system yields a rate of
about 15 percent among 16- to 19-year-olds. That is good news. The bad news
is that this dropout rate is twice as high as the dropout rate for
comparable non-Hispanic whites. Further on the positive side, this report
finds that the dropout rate for Latinos in U.S. schools is improving as it
has been for non-Latinos.

This is just more proof that we do not need illegals to pick produce. There are millions of people in this country that are qualified for nothing else. All we need to do is pay farm workers more than a person can make on welfare and get those who can work off of welfare and into the fields. It is amazing what a motivator hunger can be. If it can motivate people to sneak across the border to work on our farms it can motivate American born people who drop out of school to work in the fields. It will also motivate those in school to stay there if they know that rather than sitting on their asses and making babies they will have to work hard labor jobs if they want to eat.

We know Juanito and his friends won't be picking any thing but the system. Riding on the backs of others like the carpet baggers they so are.

Oh come now! Gringos don't pick anything except their noses and their nuts. Jajajaja
We just pick our noses and nuts to stay in practice in the offseason. Gringos are dedicated pickers.

Illegal Immigrants Dump Trash on Arizona

I've been thinking about Kindergarten lately, and the trash dumped on our
borderlands by illegal aliens. The connection isn't as tenuous as it might
seem, and I'll get to it in a moment, along with a modest proposal to deal
with this huge problem.

First, a question: Have you had your holy-smokes moment yet regarding our
illegal-immigration crisis? If not, travel to Arizona's border region, and
go off-road to the game trails, mountain passes and grassland flats that
make this area so magical.

In many places, the magic is gone, lost beneath piles of garbage.

If such a trip is impossible, look at the pictures accompanying this
article. They should provide a jolt, a visual boot to the backside, after
which you'll proclaim, "Holy smokes! I had no idea!"

Most people have no idea. These images should be beamed around the country
so everyone can understand Arizona's crucible.

How much trash has been dropped since this invasion began? Try 24 million
pounds, from the Colorado River to the New Mexico line. The federal Bureau
of Land Management made that estimate in 2007 and called it conservative.
The agency uses a formula of eight pounds of trash dropped per day, per
person.

Based on this, we can look at certain federal lands and understand the
extent of the pileup. For example, at the peak of traffic in 2004 and 2005,
the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge near Sasabe, southwest of Tucson,
was getting 2,000 crossings a day, and that translates to 16,000 pounds of
trash a day.

In the early 2000s, the Tohono O'odham Reservation was getting 1,500
crossers daily and 12,000 pounds of trash. The tribe now has workers who
march out several times a week to do cleanups, says Gary Olson,
administrator of the tribe's solid-waste program. Between September 2004 and
December 2008, his workers removed 106 tons.

And they have the audacity to wonder why Americans cannot stand them. They drop out of HS to anchor and get on Welfare. They contribute so little to this Country it's appalling. The only individuals wanting them here are Global Co's. Mc Donalds, Wendy's, etc. Marriott propertys, and Casinos in Nevada. AND WE DIE ON OUR FREEWAYS, PUT UP WITH HOME INVASION, CAR THEFT, ID THEFT ETC. I've never seen such a low class culture as these people. No wonder Mexico through them away.

I wonder if all these politicians who support amnesty know exactly what they are supporting? What the hell am I saying. They have all been paid off to support amnesty. They don't care if it's right or wrong.

You really think we need 11 -30 million illegals to pick our produce???? And what do they do When they are not picking produce ??? Few illegals were ever working on farms . Farms also have machines that pick . Im thinking school kids. just who picked it before the illegals invaded??? They have only been here in mass since 1986 . At that time we only had a few million.
A good percentage of them will simply collect unemployment (and welfare for any socalled anchor babies) for 6 months until it's time to go to the fields again! Welfare continues.
