Just how will they destroy the US Lee? Are you willing to pay $5 for a head of lettuce or $12 for a quart of strawberries or more for apples and oranges like upwards of $4 a pound. You should expect to pay more, a lot more for all fruits and vegetables, because they are all picked by migrant workers, who yes are sometimes illegal. It's not necessarily the fault of the migrant, often it is the fault of the employer, who refuses to give them a green card. If the migrant was given a green card then payroll taxes would have to be withheld, no longer could they be housed in substandard housing, and yes all would qualify for SSI, workers comp, unemployment insurance, medicare, welfare, and yes (gasp) national health insurance or in teabagese "Obamacare". Liberties you take for granted, or perhaps you think you are entitled to, because your skin is a certain color.

Will do little to curb illegal immigration. Why don't they go after the rich elite that employ/slave the poor illegals?

Are you willing to have another 12 million people come into our towns and take the majority of jobs add another million children to our school systems. We have to either draw the line somewhere or we are going to have to go to Mexico to find a job.

Get your head out of the sand. They live better than I do for almost free. Go to a welfare office and check out the cars they drive, the cell phones we pay for, for them, their clothing and then stand behind them in the supermarket and see if you can afford the food they buy with the Oregon Trail card. I can't buy it. They get teachers who teach their kids english, which cost us more, free lunches. Shall I go on?
Do we deserve health care, social security? Dang right I do. I paid my way all my life and worked in those fruit, cotton and vegetable fields. And I'm white! So don't say they are the only ones who work the fields. That's an insult to other working people. Have you never seen the Russian immigrants in the fields? You probably never looked.
It's bleeding heart liberals like you who don't have a clue as to what is going on in this country and has been for decades. Maybe you should go to Arizona, New Mexico or Texas and see what I saw there.
We have been educating the Mexico kids and bussing them from Mexico for years. plus paying for all their kids to be born in the U.S. so they could move here. Go to Deming, N.M. and check it out. You'd be shocked. Maybe then you Oregonian people would have your eyes opened. Because you are all wearing blindrers.
