This all just keeps getting better and better.
    Err, no. Immigrant migrant workers here doesn't mean child labor elsewhere.

    And, actually, migrant workers are helpful to the economy because they purchase goods here at the stores to take back home. So they still spend money here and help fuel the economy.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Sure they do...they spend a little of that little bit they earn here and send what they can back home. So...slave labor is a win win. Again...I getcha.

    No. They spend a good deal of what they earn here on goods they can't get back home. Stereos, video games, ipods and the like. They also spend their money on other essentials, such as food, beverages, and housing.

    And, again, it's not slave labor - what they earn gives them a good living when they're back at their home country because of the exchange rate.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Migrant workers? They are spending all that money on convenience goods? You sure about that? But hey...as long as you can justify in your own mind bringing in cheap labor to do the job "no American would do" and pay them crap wages...Im fine with it.

    60 Minutes did a story about a factory in Nebraska that 20 years ago was paying 20? dollars an hour for a floor job and the town was 97% white and now, 20 years later the same job commands a whopping 10 dollars an hour and the town is 80% or so latino. This is not unusual either. Play all the emotional games you like though...

    Well, everything I've said is true.

    In fact, there's crops rotting in Arkansas or Alabama (can't remember which) because all the migrant workers aren't coming back because of tighter immigration rules. A few billion is projected in losses. Which is much more money that is lost over the money the migrant workers would take with them.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Speaks volumes about American 'workers'. Speaks volumes about the value some people place on that cheap brown slave labor. No biggie...we are doing them a favor.

    Emotional games? Im stating straight up reality. That cheap brown labor (hey...BTW...10$ an hour...thats MORE than minimum wage, right) and this mindset that we are justified in paying slave labor to do the job no AMERICAN would deign themselves to do is part of the problem

    Please explain how paying a person enough wages where they can live in the US for half the year and then live in their home country for the other half of the year in relative comfort, as well as being able to buy consumer goods unavailable in their home country, "slave labor."
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
