It isn't close to fulfilling the need.

Putting aside all the jobs sitting on the couch watching Dr. Phil are already taken by Americans.

Both the illegal aliens and those who hire them are equally guilty! Did someone drag them over the border and force them to work here? Are illegals aliens little babies that don't know right from wrong? I supposed in the pro-illegal bizzario world that only the bank robber is guilty but not the guy driving the get-away car?

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.

Right,1 million legal immigrants and millions of Americans that are willing to do most jobs in this country aren't enough to fill the need for these greedy employers because they have to pay them a fair wage so they hire illegal aliens instead. The NEED is to increase their profits not that there is a shortage of willing authorized workers in this country. The pro-illegal lies continue as usual.

No, they wanted to feed their families.

And they don't have the access to food stamps you have.

Compare to Americans who whine about illegal aliens but don't mind hiring them to get a better bottom line.

And you think that metaphor made sense, eh?

There would be no significant illegal immigrants here if laws were changed to meet the needs of Americans who depend on the labor they have been using for the last forty years.

If Congress would take up immigration reform instead of passing the same bill fifty times knowing it wasn't going to make it through the Senate.

And immigration reform includes putting the presidents of the companies who knowing hire illegal immigrants in jail, and allowing a clear path to citizenship of those that deserve it- which would cover most of those eleven million aliens.

No one has the right to break the law and take food off the tables of others to feed THEIR families. It is just a myth anyway that illegals can't feed their families in their own countries. It is just that our jobs pay more here and they do get food stamps through their anchor babies.

Most Americans don't hire illegal aliens. Just another pro-illegal alien lie! There is no true NEED for anyone to hire an illegal alien. It is just that they want a job done cheaper while they pass the social costs of these illegal aliens unto us regular law abiding Americans.

There no "reform" in the making just amnesty for illegal alien lawbreakers while we have 23 million willing to work Americans unemployed. None of these illegal aliens deserve our citizenship and we don't need them here for anything except to line the wallets of greedy employers. E-verify should be mandated in every workplace to stop these greedy employers and their illegal slaves from breaking the law. They are both EQUALLY guilty and should be punished. Why just punish the employers and then reward these illegal aliens for their part in breaking the law? Double standard, much?

You are a f*ing liar.

Don't take that the wrong way: it just truth doesn't come out of your lips.

Immigrants working the fields take jobs from no one and the food would otherwise rot, because we know you aren't going to harvest it.

If you can't go man to man against someone who doesn't speak English, it says a whole lot for your job skill set, Shug.

You are the one who is making the claim.

Funny how that is.

You make the claim, and then you deny it.

Wipe your chin, dear.

Now why don't you tell us most illegal aliens have college degrees?

That's a flat out lie- what else could we expect from you, shug?

Whether or not you LIKE or AGREE with with the proposed reforms they do if fact exist.

They aren't anywhere close to being equally guilty.

The American is providing the incentive for the immigrant to come work here, and the American is paying lower wages in order to increase his profit.

And OFTEN: the American business man is going to stiff the employee for his wages or even stiff him and then turn him in.

Here's a thought:

Just deport both.
