'Get rid of those illegal immigrants who come stealing our jobs'

Oh, wait. $1 per bundle, and you probably can only put together $40-$50 worth a day, working as a couple? Not enough money, you say? And paying more would raise the price of floral arrangements for rich people?

Cause? Let me introduce you to my friend Effect.

You just hit the nail on the head, it would make the floral industry have to pay more. It used to be that you could make a living picking brush on the Olympic, my family did, not anymore...

So we should allow the foreign invasion of our country for the price of......cheap floral arrangements?

I think they should spend more time chasing meth dealers and busting down meth labs since Washington is the state that's pretty responsible for most of the nation's meth problems.

That would certainly rankle the feathers of the tea party base.

no country in the world has totally open borders not even Mexico. For people to demand rights not even given in the own country or any country in the world is totally insane.There is a reason no country has open borders. There is no free lunch anywhere in the world.

The Open Society Institute is the cornerstone for the Soros Foundations Network, a group of Soros-funded organizations in more than 50 countries, which promote open-society concepts by influencing governmental policies.

The various branches and paid instrumentalities of the network include Democracy Alliance, MoveOn.org, America Coming Together, America Votes, The Center for American Progress, and other leftist front organizations, which advocate open borders for the United States — not for other nations but for the United States. These Soros-funded groups finance his camp followers, among them the Democratic Party, the National Organization of Women, abortion advocacy groups, various environmental groups, and last but not least, the increasingly powerful immigration special interest groups.

If Soros and his backers have their way........

Having lived in Vermont (breeding ground for terrorists, smugglers, ice fisherman, and duck hunters,) I can attest that the militarization of our borders is well under way.

Upon leaving my house on my daily commute to work in Plattsburgh, NY, I would routinely pass up to 30 police cars (state, city, county, border patrol, and US Customs -- unmarked and marked) in one day. Over the course of eight months, I was stopped on five occasions... tailgated countless other times. Was never written a citation, as I hadn't been breaking any laws -- just interviewed and set back on my way.

Get used to the goon tunes, hamsters. It's your background music.

Hate 101:

1. Dehumanize your target group by giving them a name en masse like 'illegals" or "aliens"
2. Scapegoat all your countries woes on them and encourage use of #1
3. Enact laws that restrict their movement, limit their choices - then point out that they are breaking the law
4. Segregation and removal

It's a formula that has been used hundreds of years. You can claim you only want the law followed, but really it's hate. Rationalize it any way you'd like, but we all know what it stems from.

I don't hate illegal immigrants, I hate employers who give jobs to them for less than minimum wage. That's the issue.

Illegal - without legal documents
Aliens - other than who should be living in your home
35 visas to those who go to US consulates and apply legally for temporary work visas
Persons who cross between ports of entry - persons who were sent back for overstaying visas, breaking laws in US or their own country.
One million - number of persons who are legally allowed to come to the US yearly
Half million - the number of visas given to visitors each year to the US

Just cause you were born here does not make this land yours. We are on a ball of rock floating in the vastness of space. In a blink of an eye as far as time is concerned we will all be dead. Who the hell cares where people come and go on this planet. You got one life just enjoy it while you are here, drink a beer, smoke a cigg, joint, heroin whatever floats yer boat and let other people do the same.

He was an illegal running from Border Control agents. He had the option to surrender, yet he choose to jump in the river. It was his decision to do this, so he is responsible for what happened.

The agents should surround this town and arrest every illegal they find. That will solve the problem.

An excellent plan, mein Fuhrer!

If it's an impoverished area, why aren't local businesses hiring local people? Why bring in illegal migrants?

A: divide and rule.

The problem is that the a lot of employers will usually hire the worker who is willing to work for the least amount of money. Would we have these problems if employers followed the law?

I don't see why this is a big deal ? An illegal is rightly chased by border patrols doing their job, instead of giving up he jumps into a river and drowns. He had a choice, surrender vs drowning ! Would this event have occurred on an Israeli border, he would have been found with 20 bullets in the head and the event would not have been reported on any news !

At what point will the US be overpopulated? Do our elected officials consider the detrimental effects of being populated by people who do not understand how and why the United States of America was formed? How much more population will our system support?
50 years from now we will be moaning and whining about the lax immigration policies of the early 21st century and what dupes allowed to happen in the US.

Illegal immigration is one of the US's biggest problems and not one politician, not one statistician publishes or uses the cost of it. How much more complicated by illegal immigration is building our economy, educating our children, creating jobs & meeting our existing obligations ?
Does anyone consider this factor into meeting the obligations of pensions, Social Security, Medicare?
Illegals & politicians allowing illegal immigration are bankrupting our country. Why is the govt complicit in allowing this to happen? Why do they (politicians) not discuss this when campaigning, when making laws, when committing funds for existing programs?

I should have added in my post below that the fellow who jumped in the river wasn't too bright either. He could've been sent home free of charge and been back for the next picking season. Nobody from around here would jump into any of those rivers, for any reason. (except maybe to try and save someone else who accidentally fell in, which happens now and then, but they don't usually make it either).

My father went to mexico and hired two men to work his ranch. Because the federal government stopped his hiring of European workers. In order to get these two men from Mexico, He had to make sure their papers were in order, Birth Certificates, and other identification. They had to fill out an application. They came over from Mexico to Arizona, Legally. Its a long process, and yes there is a viable way to come across the border Legally, however, you all know they choose to do the illegal route, perhaps because they do not have any papers to support they are Mexican nationals.
