    The point is, immigrants--legal or not-- don't come to this country and go straight to work.

    sounds like a good time for a real citizens' militia. recruit lots of former all-american riflemen and wimbledon cup champions. Put .David Tubb behind a 4000 dollar sniper rifle up on some hill with orders to zap anything trying to breach the border and its gonna put a serious stop to anyone trying to get through

    But, not all of then, as some folks would have us believe.

    No, not all of them.

    Generalizing about any group of people generally leads in the wrong direction.

    but, not always.

    Let me guess, generalization is only bad when it doesn't support your argument.

    I think, in political forums such as this, speaking in general terms is the best we can do.

    We all know, or should know, that one size does not fit all. But can we imagine how hard it would be to converse with each other and with every post chock full of disclaimers?

    Not all, but probably more than what most people would expect.

    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.
