They are here for the free stuf... Medical, Education, Housing Assistance , food stamps, Affirmative action in the schools and the work place not to mention polical action groups. Of course then there is all the crime and alchoholism that comes with it. Once they get all the Kitsch and are going to have to pay for it plus the politicians have milked them dry for votes Oh well... It's Hosta la Vesta Baby!

It depends on the farmer.

My parents were farmers, and they supported immigration reform because they knew it was the right thing to do. We had a large family so they never had to hire migrant workers, but many of our neighbors did and they paid & treated them like crap because they knew they were hiring illegals who couldn't complain.

I imagine other farmers are hoping for a migrant worker plan as part of any immigration reform so they can continue to have cheap slave labor.

It depends on the farmer.

You are deluding yourself, you greasy POS, if you think only republicans are anti-hispanic. No one in America wants Mexico's human garbage except slime bag democrats on Washington. Go home to your septic tanks.

Don't you remember what your EPIC fail Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney once said????

During the second presidential debate, Mitt Romney repeatedly said 'government does not create jobs' twice after Obama responded to moderator Candy Crowley's question on bringing manufacturing jobs back to the states.

They don't create jobs but they also don't cause jobs to go away.

Look at the US postal service down to no mail delivery on Saturday. More jobs lost. Nothing done to help save jobs either.

Its so funny that you made this statement! Because illegals cant get Food Stamps, medical assistance, housing assistance... in order to get these... u need to submit ur birth cert and SS card with a valid ID... Many come here to have a better life for themselves and their children... LIKE UR ANCESTORs did for ur family!!!! how do u think many of us got here!!! not all of us are Native American. So before u open ur mouth, research it!!!
And just to start that research.... find out how many ITINs are circulating in the US, ITINs are used for those who do not have Social Security Numbers to used to pay taxes!!!! throught employment.... and they pay like u and me... and donot get all back. And if US deported them all, what effect would that have on the current SocialSecurity and disablilty, and MEDICare???? it would end the day we deport!!!!
