First they want to legalize 20 million illegals that they claim are needed to do the jobs Americans wont do . Like picking crops. In addition to this they want to bring in millions of more people to work in agriculture. WTF!Isn't this what we have to legalize the illegals to do. On top of that they want to bring in millions more to work in the high tech,construction and service industry. What they want is more and more cheap labor. This drives the prevailing wages down. Any American wanting to work will have to work for crap wages in order to compete for any job. Enjoy those good paying jobs while you can. They'll be gone very soon.

Of course business groups cheer for slave labor. It seems we forgot the bloodiest time in our history when we fought to outlaw slavery. Now our politicians fight for the slaveholders who want to renew that policy.

The undocumented immigrant is fighting the same battles that blacks fought back in the 50's and 60's.

We will take nothing short of a piece of the pie and that is full amnesty.

Come off it, juan; people who make peanuts pay little to nothing into the coffers. What do you contribute, besides hot air???? Your opinion matters not in the scheme of things.
