The real experiment is how much will it cost to have US nationals doing the work that illegal do and pay for the children of those US national that birth at the same rate as the illegal?
.
I bet you the cost of US nationals doing that work will be twice that of the illegal!

ASK..ANY unemployed American, a homeless family in their car or children begging for food..these illegals have overtaken America..factories hire them cheaply..knowing they will work better than an American who has the Union by their side for higher wages and good working conditions..Unlike the illegals, they will take whatever job will be offered for survival purposes..just to have a plain roof over their heads, food in their stomachs and pride..that they can provide for their families back home also. We, Americans can B!TCH about the illegals ALL we want to..Obama said that they can stay..NOW that is a slap in the face of every redneck American here!

You are dumb. It is the Republicans who have kept the border loose in the past and want more wokers so that their corporate friends and supporters can increase the labour pool and bring down wages. It is an anti-union move.
That is not the Democratic agenda. but since the Republicans got them in here, the Dems being more humanitarian and are at least trying to make their life more bearable..

But you.. long-term Americans should have no problem out-competing these people.. You have a good home base, education, are capitalists supposedly, are hard working, supposedly, so show the world your stuff and get rich... You know the American dream... "anyone can make it"... so make it..
go hire some of these people to make you rich.. It's cheap labour.. what are you complaining about.
or are YOU the needy greedy....

You sound like the weak victims you are always complaining about.....Get off your ass and do it....

If you were working properly, doing your job right, and not whining, they wouldn't lay you off.
You sound like a Needy Greedy. Not a personally responsible good hard worker.

Obama only said those people who have been here and established themselves could stay.. not everyone.

Downsizing is the Republican Corporatists sending jobs to China..... keep voting for them, and move to China.. your job is there.

Don't be Fooled. it is the Republicans who like foreign workers.. Follow the money, dummy..
Who profits most from them being here... Big business.. who the F are they... Republicans.. Jeez you guys.

First of all it will not cost any more and second is the fact that the saving from sending you illegal pukes home would off set any increases......

Oslama is the biggest reason people are being laid off.........

Business will not start to expand and hire people as they dont trust oslama........

Then we have countries like Canada that lowered the tax on the rich to 15% less than half of the rate in the USA

Dreamers.. Businesses are not going to hire anyone..

They will send more work and jobs to China.. and this time with the support of the US president.

That is his job. Republican presidents run interference for the corporations... not for workers.

you guys are just mushrooms.....

Just watch if Robmey wins.. you will have another big depression coming and you will never get more jobs.. But Wall street will buy you all out for a few pennies on the dollar.

Canada taxes the rich properly... I don't know where you get your crazy figures...

Well, if the employers pay them a decent wage, why would we have to pay for their kids? Responsible parents usually try to support their own kids.
