It's GREAT to be me. --- "45% liberal/55% conservative"
Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.
Many of these folks are coming to join friends and relatives. Probably about 10% of my business comes from illegals. I sell business products. It doesn't seem like these illegals would need business products, but a large percent of them come with the intention of starting their own business (a lot of times that's the only "job" they can get). A couple of weeks ago this hispanic guy who has been an occasional customer came to me with his friend to order business cards, invoices and yard signs. His friend litterally just crossed our border a few days earlier and didn't speak a single word of English, but he did have some money and plans to start painting contractor business.
A lot of these people are coming here to WORK, and most of them are willing to work very hard for little pay. Many of those who start businesses do so within the hispanic community, so they aren't really taking away American jobs as the existince of this hispanic community has in itself created more jobs, jobs that wouldn't have existed without them being here.
