" let them work for a few years doing jobs that Americans won't do like picking produce (after these jobs have been posted for 60 days FOR Americans but haven't been filled)"

What you mean is jobs that Americans won't do for Third World wages. By flooding our labor market with the world's economic refugees, we're simply bidding our standard of living down.

BINGO. All this "jobs that Americans won't do" is a bunch of BS. There is NO task that cannot or will not be done by some American. It's simply a matter of paying someone enough to do it.

What, you'd have to pay $12/hour to find someone to shovel your pig sh*t in 110 degree heat, and you think that's too much? Then, by all means, do it yourself.

You know how most Americans are nowadays. Even if they need a job badly they'll still scowl and say they're not doing THAT job. Most of these positions have been filled by Hispanic workers for years, even ones who came here legally in the 60s and 70s but have now moved up the economic ladder. So they left these positions and now they've been vacant and are being filled by illegals, since Americans won't do 'em.

Globalization is the other side to your statement. We now also have companies leaving the US for cheaper labor and better tax relief. GM is building a few engines in China now. Tommy Hilfiger (American Flag and all- Headquartered in Hong Kong?
