The diminished economy is doing more to rid us of illegals than anything else.

I'm one of those 60% who sunk or just appreciated the demise of the immigration bill in 2007. I don't care if they are hard-working, and many are, they shouldn't be put at the counter of my MacDonalds until they can take a simple order. Last week there were 3 errors in my one meal. Sometimes I think I should get a discount for staff training.

So who's going to accuse me of xenophobia? Take your best shot.

But to be serious, the diminished economy is making companies go for cheap labor as often as possible. That might make the skillset/wage factor more attractive to many businesses on those corner cutting jobs.

And regarding MickieD's, just order in Spanish if you want your order correct. Remember, the Hispanic population has been in Colorado longer than the Anglo.

That may be, but the cheap laborers are natives--white ones from Wall Street.

To be precise, "Hispanics" didn't arrive here until the Census invented the term.

However, Latinos have been around a long time. Not to coin a phrase, but "We won."

From what I have been reading in the population projections, that might be a premature assumption.

America's whites will become minority by 2042, says census bureau - Americas, World - The Independent

That's what I have read, too. Proves that a lot of them are not here just to take those difficult jobs. Some must be laying around a lot.

I'm sorry maybe I am missing something hear.

Illegal Aliens are ILLEGAL meaning they have broken the law. Why is there a discussion about whether or not deport them or not? They are ILLEGAL!

People talk about how poor and downtrodden they are. That is because they are ILLEGAL and can not get good jobs. Those immigrants who are legal can get good jobs just like my great grandparents did when the Irish invaded.

They somehow made it when the sign "No Irish Need Apply" was proudly dispayed. Could you imagine what would happen if a business posted a sign "No Latinos Need Apply."?

The issue is the liberal mindset of "well they have been here a long time and so we should just let them stay."

Well that keeps ILLEGAL aliens working at slave wages as well as a tremendous strain on our infrastructure.

And since when is it racist to build a fence on your border to prevent ILLEGAL aliens from entering the country.

You know when a boat has a hole in the bottom you plug the hole first, then start bailing, then figure out how the hole got there. It seems like we are doing the whole ILLEGAL immigration thing backwards to me.
