when you are looking only for a certain group of illegal aliens you may have problems. or maybe putting adds up for min wage jobs 2000 miles away while not local where the job is.

tells me one illegal alien on your jobsite is reason to shut down and jail all who know and have yet to be American and report the crime.

I don't understand the logic of allowing a policy of birthright citizenship when it doesn't benefit us.

fact is, most countries in the world don't follow this policy.

so, why should we?

That makes sense. Low wages and getting welfare yet they put more money in?

I was in a Jack in the box today and this Hispanic woman came in with 2 kids pulling behind them a ice cooler on wheels. She asked the manager if she could get some ice. Of course she couldn't speak English, she was talking through a Hispanic employee.

Where does she get the coconuts to go to a fast food place and ask to fill up a cooler with ice? Doesn't she have any pride?

According to federal law we should not either. They just turn a blind eye to it and allow it to happen.

When a person is sworn into america one of the rules is you should have no allegance to another . now what is that if not duel citizenship. Mexico still aknowledges them even if theytake US citizen ship. This is why they can say they are mexican / American because they really are Mexican first and always . we just think they are here for America . They would not defend America over Mexico .

Yet you support the illegal alien who does exactly that. Plus, building homes is not a low skilled job, yet they have a lot of those jobs. Listen for a change instead of living in your little bubble and think that you have all the answers because of your limited life experience. Americans are being screwed and you go along with it, because you haven't been affected, yet.
A lot of these workers get on-the-job training, as they have no skills in the area...I wonder how many major mistakes are being hidden on some of these builds. Doesn't that make you feel so secure when looking at a new home?

Do you remember back in the 60`s 70`s and 80`s that normal American citizens used to get on the job training? Now days If you want a Job you are over qualified if you went to college. All the Illegals get jobs meant for our young. Blacks can`t get a job because that is not Obama`s agenda. Obama loves The Muslim brotherhood. After all he pumps money to them. As well as giving America away to Illegal Aliens. Obama is obvious in the fact that he would love to see Israel Vanquished. Maybe Pongyang would do us all a favor if they hit the right target.

I remember how easy it was for college boys to work construction during their summer breaks, many making enough money to cover their expenses for the school year. Now, these jobs have dried up for those boys. Bottomline, we have to rid ourselves of the politicians who keep pusing illegals into the work force...I get so weary of those who spew the nonsense that they jobs Americans won't. Americans worked them before being undercut out of those jobs. How politicians think sticking Americans in the unemployment line, while allowing illegals the opportunity to undercut them is lunacy. How they think that by allowing illegals to tap into a free social service system in which they hardly ever if at all made contributions is more lunacy. We are a country that has allowed lunatics to take over. I dont see anybody good enough to run on either side of the aisle in 2016.

I agree with you all the way. But now days it seems the New World Order is the agenda. As well as Obama claiming to be Christian. But promoting the Muslim agenda. If Satan looked like Obama in the History channel Bible Mini series It was a good match in my opinion.

I wouldn't be so quick to give a shout out...DEM is short for demolition of our country. Wake up and look around you. Opportunities are drying up, while more people sit quietly by watching it all go up in smoke...literally.

•Though blacks are disproportionately represented among food stamp recipients, far more whites receive such assistance. When recipients identified themselves by race in 2010, 34 percent were white, 22 percent were black and 16 were percent Hispanic, the Agriculture Department said.

•Food-stamp spending has indeed increased under Obama, but its steady climb began under President George W. Bush.
