[QUOTE who="Oldglory"It has nothing to do with Americans being lazy and refusing to do those jobs for a fair wage.[/QUOTE]

Americans won't take the jobs if they can get more money collecting workman's comp.

And they won't work out on the fields at all.

You do know that workman's comp is for injured workers, don't you? How could an injured person be working you dufass.

I already said for the umpteenth time that most Americans won't pick crops for a living. There's that reading comprehension problem again. But for those jobs there are unlimited visas for LEGAL foreingers to come and pick crops.

It is the other jobs that illegals are holding that I am talking about that most Americans have always done for a fair wage. Haven't Americans always done construction work for example? Or are they too lazy to do that job now according to your pro-illegal Kool-Aid propaganda? You're an idiot!

No they aren't you idiot! Regardless of the numbers of illegal aliens picking crops it is still only 3% of them that are. The other 97% are doing jobs that Americans will do.

Putting aside the racist policies that allow access from Europe, and stranglehold on brown people coming in south of the border.
Really? Well here ya go, liar!

Mexicans enjoy the largest quotas by far for legal immigration into our country and next in line are other Latino countries. You were sayin about the strangehold on brown people? LOL! There is very little immigration from Europe these days. Want some ketchup to eat with that crow you will be eating?

You are a F*king liar.
H-2a VISAS are *sponsored* and *conditional*.
For ONE VISA slot to be opened, the sponsor has to agree to a rigid set of rules- rules farmers are not willing to meet: they must pay them fairly, that must provide livable housing, and they must provide transportation to and from work site.
I guess your boyfriend had his hands over your ears and was blocking off your air supply.
.
So what? You yourself are now admitting that many of the farmers don't want to use these visas because they have to pay them a fair wage and provide for them. That's exactly what I have been saying all along, you idiot! Illegals get hired because they work cheaper and the farmers and other employers can then pass their social costs on to we the taxpayer so that they don't have to provide it. You just proved my point, THANKS! It isn't that the farmers and other employers can't find legal or American workers it is that they want to increase their profits from cheap, illegal labor instead. Kind of screwed up there, didn't you? LOL!

I don't have a boyfriend. I am a man married to a woman, you insulting dolt! Seems like you're the one with hands over ears and blocking your air supply. You're too stupid to see that you just proved the point I was making all along! What a dummy! LOL!

I pointed this out before you even brought it up!

HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAH!

You are holding out the visa like it is some kind of Golden Ticket to tour the chocolate factory and I keep jamming it up your azz over and over and over.

Seems you like things being stuffed there, eh, Sweet Pea?

So the visa is useless... gee, who pointed that out to you Jzzmcheeks?

Do you think any one else will notice you are arguing against yourself?

years ago Americans worked in construction making a decent wage and for the most part did quality work.homes,highways etc.
Now you can go by any construction site and see nearly all are hispanic/mexicans doing it all,roofing,brickwork,electric al,plumbing, sheet rock install and painting ect.
Any roadwork....mexicans. Heavy duty equipment operaters,cranes....all mexicans.
WHY
because the mexicans legal and illegal came in and do the work for MUCH less wages.

I got no problem with any legal immigrant! But any and all illegal aliens should be controlled by deporting and going after those that hire the illegal.

Us Gringos don't mind leaving some people from Mexico, or wherever, come here in a couple years. When we get everyone back working then we can allow immigrants to come here as NEEDED. The uncontrolled invasion we have on our southern border is unacceptable. 20 million illegal aliens occupying the US is unacceptable. We allow over 1 million immigrants to come here legally every year. That's excessive with the unemployment we have. Instead of creating an unemployed underclass we should be enforcing our laws and protecting American jobs.

Sensible and truthful post. However, watch for the potty mouthed, uncivil pro-illegals to swoop down on you and call you a liar and then insult you like the spoiled little children that they are. They simply cannot handle the truth. I am done with their hateful crap. I prefer debating with adults.

That's odd... there's not a single Hispanic working here at this work site.

PS: Blaming illegal aliens for the crimes of the people that hire them to increase their profits is like blaming Columbia for the cocaine that millions of Americans snort every year.
