Farmers!
And farmers hire illegal aliens to pick their crops- since more than half that work their fields are illegal.

Made up numbers? Um no, from viable sources. I don't have to work in agriculture to understand statistics. Most illegals are doing jobs that Americans are willing to do. They aren't picking crops but do enjoy your pro-illegal Kool-Aid.

Really? Why would they do that when there are unlimited H-2A visas for legal, foreign crop pickers?

Made up numbers- and disingenuous.

MOST- meaning more than 50.0001 percent- of the people working the fields are illegal aliens.

It doesn't mean that they aren't working in chicken factories cleaning chickens or beef factories chopping up beef- both foods, by the way- or it doesn't mean that they aren't cleaning hotel and motels or waiting for white Republicans to pick them up to do day jobs.

The National Agricultural Workers Survey

Chapter 1: Birthplace, Employment Eligibility, and Migrant Types

U.S. CROP WORKERS' NATIONAL ORIGIN, ETHNICITY AND RACE; FOREIGN-BORN WORKERS' FIRST ARRIVAL TO THE U.S.; WORK AUTHORIZATION; INTERNATIONAL & DOMESTIC MIGRANTS

Summary of Findings


Seventy-five percent of the workers were born in Mexico.


Fifty-three percent of all respondents were not authorized to work in the United States.

Foreign-born newcomers comprised 16 percent of the hired crop labor force.

Because people who hire them have to treat them like human beings including fair wage and provide *adequate* housing and meals.

So you want to pretend the 30,000 people here on H-2A visas are picking the entire crop?

How do you keep from punching yourself in the face?

You are a liar.

The proof would be: the jobs are there and Americans aren't doing them.

Put on top of your lie- that Americans are willing to do them- is the fact that 75 percent AREN'T Americans.

And the 25 percent left that are: most are Latino, children of immigrants.

Besides, messyhole would never go to war with ANY nation. They do what they do best...run! bunch of gutless whiners...gimme, gimme,gimme!!

Actually, Old Glory is of by 1%. Of the 20-30 million illegal aliens invading this nation, FOUR PERCENT work in agriculture..and it's not a "farm" anymore, it's agribusinesses.

That's one of the bullshit lies Jorge Bush tried to lay on us. Just doing the jobs Americans won't do. Americans ARE willing to do them and are STILL doing them where illegal aliens haven't come in illegally and under-bid Americans for jobs. Illegal aliens are the cockroaches of American life. They need to leave or be shot. And when we stuff that last smoke in YOUR big, ugly pie hole and cover your fat, wrinkled face with a blindfold at sunrise, I'd like to be there.

Why are 80% of the illegal aliens and immigrants in this nation hispanic? Doesn't that strike you as a little discriminatory? What about people from other nations who are waiting to come LEGALLY and BE Americans, instead of just bleeding us like the bloodsucking illegals?

This is another lie, you ignorant high school drop out.

Suffice to say: 100 percent of Americans are illegal aliens, immigrants, or have a heritage to immigrants.

You have done nothing for this country, you bloodsucking high school drop out.

'tis a shame that to be a citizen of this country, one really has to do absolutely nothing- which is the sum total of what you have done so far.

Yet people who risk their life to come here have to put up with ignorant bigoted parasites like you.

Just isn't fair, eh?

No, dear: you are the cockroach of American society.

That is why you hide- we turn on the light, and you scurry away under the sink, that is why you find the need to move your alias so frequently.

You are a dying breed, thankfully.

What I said is that only 3% of the entire illegal population here are picking crops. The other 97% are doing jobs that Americans have always done. There is no reason for the growers/farmers to hire illegal aliens because there are unlimited H-2A visas for ag jobs but they choose illegals instead to increase their profits.

You're so full of shit! Only white Republicans are picking up illegal aliens to do day labor jobs? Is your nose growing right now? I see you have no problem telling lies.

How would you know if she is a high school dropout or not? Do you often make negative insults towards others that you know nothing about just because they don't share your political views? How adolescent of you. What is bigoted about wanting our immigration laws respected and enforced?
