    The problem with any proposal that brings in foreign workers is wage deflation.

    These people, generally, work for less wages even when they are legal and coupled with them, generally, skirting housing laws with(amount of people living in one home); they can live on less than the average low income family.

    The city I work in has a lot of Hispanic immigrants, by and large they are good people but the city/county/state ignore their housing situation because they know that businesses like cheaper labor.
    There are many place in my county where you can get a job but it doesn't provide a real market wage because of the immigrants that dominate the field.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    People forget that the GOP is backed in large part by their corporate CEO buddies that want to keep a healthy number of undocumented workers in the system in order to keep wages low and profits high.

    Would you expect anything different?
    What GOP backers would that be?

    And try to get it right I am part of the if it has to do with the Socialist/Marxist Obama mine is the HELL NO PARTY.

    I just have not registered it yet.

    I'm betting it will be even more popular than the Tea Party because.

    And yes I oppose illegal alien amnsety but I do it in my own words unlike this poster who has to go to the Obama. Pelosi, Reid , AstroTurf talking points site for phrases to use.

    Those who stand for nothing fall for anything.

    I believe in amnesty in exchange for back tax penalties, a sworn allegiance to the United states, and ability to pass English tests within 6-8 months. Or signing up for military duty. All people who refuse this, will face deportation or jail.

    Something similar exists already its called the Dream Act.
    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.
