some key facts to consider before reading this bullshit..

1) slavery is against the law.
2) child labor is against the law.
3) we only need 2 million farm workers to work the farms.
4) we have a minimum wage.

now read the guest commentary..

the author is suggesting that we support an amnesty that ignores the key facts that I've listed above and grant citizenship to an UNKNOWN and UNLIMITED number of foreigners who are in the usa ILLEGALLY.

we already have a legal procedure in place that farmers can utilize to find non-citizens to work their farms. USE IT.

in addition, to protect our farmers, the government should not allow foreign products to bankrupt them.

any recourse that leads to suicide is not logical.

it would never make sense to allow another country to be your only source for food, water, weapons, etc..

that's reality.

in the usa, we practice something called "mixed economies". meaning it is not pure capitalism. the fact that we have things like social security, welfare, medicare, etc. confirm this.
