    However, both immigrants and American nationals are finding themselves stuck in low paying, dead end, service sector jobs that are mostly part time with no benefits thanks to greedy, cost cutting, ungrateful employers of today. Horribly sad but trueicon_sad.gif

    More Liberal Lies by Omission to promote keeping law breaking illegal aliens in the US.

    The NYTimes failed to mention the H1N1 Visa program. At a company I worked at, 23 software engineers were let go and 30 Indians were hired under H1N1 at a third of the cost.

    There is no way for the study to accurately measure the effect of illegal aliens and US workers involved in the underground economy.

    I've had 6 home improvement projects done on my house. All 6 contractors used illegal aliens to get the work done, most under the veil of subcontracting. My state has many unemployed legal construction workers who want to work.

    Outsourcing. Nothing to do with immigration.

    But the world is made up of Americans and Immigrants. You didn't know that? Doesn't matter if they are in their own country. That just makes them potential immigrants. Same thing.

    Well we have to admit that Americans are living in a material world and most don't know the value of a dollar. Immigrants illegal or not come here to work hard for the US dollar. They don't take this land for granted the way so many Americans do. Most go to work in their foreign car, buy crap from China, obsess over African gems and pay taxes that go towards international defense.
    What we see here is an entitled society dependent on cheap labor overseas. This won't last forever, we'll be put back to work in the near future I'm sure.
