They can bring in all the illegals the government can find. They will have their own neighborhoods, like the AA do, and they will vote as a block. The rest of America was busy watching American Idol to see the the take over coming, and the Democrats helped it happen. So go reelect them as they welcome you to your new America. Make sure you give them all your guns first. This is what the greatest generation fought for, and died.
Did the democrats help it happen? Sure enough. They refused to stand up to the GOP. They refused to even allow investigations into all the corporations hiring illegals just to lower wages and eliminate benefits.

Can't blame the illegals, they were recruited, brought here by corporations to make more money with illegally lower wages, flooding the labor pool to reduce wages even further.

Really? Are you serious? You're telling me that the big agribusiness farmers would just close up if we got rid of illegals? You're crazy. They are already price gouging. If we got rid of illegal aliens and brought true market forces back in play, we would put Americans back to work and increase wages. If you think these big exploiters will just close up shop because their overhead is larger, you're crazy. If you think that these businesses will fold because their slave labor disappears, you're crazy. If these people raise their prices above what the people are willing to pay, People won't buy their products and the prices will go down. But they won't go out of business. They will adjust to what the market is. This amnesty goes against everything our market economy is supposed to be.

???? Why would they close down? There are millions and millions of citizens who cannot find jobs. Are you trying to say Americans are just too lazy to work? Are you suggesting Americans would rather go hungry than put in a day's labor?
I don't bash the immigrants, why bash the citizens?
Because they are authentic stores so no demand for the the product the store closes

If you have business and it normally cost you 1.35 to make your product you sell it to Walmart for 2.90 then they sell it for 3.25 now wages go up or demand what use to cost you 1.35 to make now cost you 3.00 now you sell it to Walmart for 4 then Walmart sells it for 6 if we don't buy the products then they will have to move over seas in search of cheap labor

You're really dense if you think that American farmers can just outsource their businesses when their costs go up. Slave labor is just an attempt to manipulate the market economy. When will you people get that?

What is this country going to do with all those Latino studies majors? They're still going to have to depend on their most successful money making skills, stealing cars and trafficking dope or illegals, after they get their degrees in the exciting new field of Latino studies.

They will become community activists, pushing people to behave stupidly; coercing people to demand things of which they aren't privy.

What gets me is how supposedly "compassionate" people support human trafficking, exploitation of labor, ignoring worker health and safety laws, and tax evasion. All so that the employers can make more money. They want to “tax the wealthy” yet they think that by keeping wages low for the working class through the use of illegal aliens they will keep prices low. The fact is that increasing taxes on “the wealthy” will increase consumer prices more than paying citizens and immigrant workers a decent wage so they do not have to depend on entitlements from the government to survive.

Ever wonder why those who teach economics are never wealthy?
