    I believe if we are going to give out 12 million get in free cards, they should not be all Mexicans. Call your congressman and tell them you demand a lottery so every poor country has a shot at sending their unskilled, low wage people here. Tell them that mexicans should make up a small portion of the total and send the rest home. The ACLU is always looking out for things like this, maybe we could call on them to sue congress, on racsim charges. John Moore

    They're not all mexicans. While the majority may be Latin American, many are Eastern European and Asian.

    I was talking to the owner of a local lawn service company. He told me he can't get any steady "American" employees for the $9-$12 an hour he pays for lawn cutting, tree trimming, raking, and all the other services he supplys.


    It's hot, sweaty, dusty work so he has to hire those who will work for the wages he pays which is what those jobs pay in this area. Are they all legal immigrant workers, probably not but he has no choice if he wants to stay in business and his workers are grateful for the opportunity to earn a living.

    olddrill...time to brush up on current events. It is Dubya that is proposing a "near amnesty" bill to allow 12 million illegal immigrants a path to citizenship.

    Which is why "real" Republicans are jumping ship faster than rich people on the Titanic.

    Of course the Dems offered similar legislation..but then...both parties eat from the same trough.

    Republican spending sprees have made the Democrats envious? I'd say more like scared. Seeing as how in 7 years we have gone from budget surplus to a projected $8trillion deficit with China holding the majority of that deficit. That should scare anyone irregardless of party affiliation.

    The manicured lawns and shrubbery and the apples, pears and oranges we enjoy will be available at a price if we are willing to pay a labor price that will attract somebody to do the work. Eliminate the cheap labor and the cost to mow, trim and pick goes up. At a price, somebody will do the work.

    Years ago everybody laughed when electricians were paid $30/hr on jobs in New York City. Today, around here, an electrician won't answer the phone for $30.

    tgun90...not just this administration. All admininstrations for the past 20+ years. NAFTA? GAT? All have worked to keep the working man's wages stagnant in regards to inflation, while boosting the profit margins of the Corporate Deities.
