"...If, by magic, the Minutemen’s dreams were granted overnight — if the border were sealed and the estimated 11 million people living in this country illegally were deported — America would most likely be unrecognizable, and not in a good way. Crops would rot in the fields, bathrooms would stay dirty, mothers of small children would be stuck at home. America is addicted to cheap labor, and withdrawal is beyond contemplation...."

As long as people believe this bullcrap, illegal immigration will continue and current illegals will not be deported. In reality, as the cheap labor market shrinks, pay will go up and the unemployed LEGAL workers will take the jobs and benefit from the increased pay. When we no longer have to pay for free medical care, education and incarceration of illegals, our expenses (and crime) will go down. What doesn't wash we can handle, and our borders will be protected.

But some upper-class soccer moms may have to clean their own toilets, and their husbands mow their own lawns. (Or vice versa ... I'm nothing if not openminded.)

Exactly correct.

Hit me the same way, only took 5 paragraphs and the BS meter pegged to the high side. At that point I stopped reading.

Or the farmers will go out of business -- which is the real answer. Many can't afford to pay "unemployed LEGAL workers." An ugly fact of life.

The main cause of illegal immigration is not that these people cross the border, but that there are Americans who hire them.
