Katrina has displaced hundreds of thousands of Americans who now need food, housing, and cash. Relief for those necessities will have to be temporary and it will be many months before they can return to New Orleans, if ever, so what they need most of all is jobs.
Our government should act immediately to put these displaced Americans in the jobs now held by illegal aliens. Some 10 million illegal aliens are now working in our country, so there is no excuse for not replacing a million of them with unemployed American citizens.
President Bush should announce an immediate crackdown on employers of illegals and set up a hiring database to match up the unemployed with jobs.
Remember how Bush was talking glibly about inviting "willing workers" to come here from other countries? We should give affirmative-action preference to willing workers from Louisiana and Mississippi.

Mexico City, May 17, 2005. In a speech Friday, Fox praised the dedication of Mexicans working in the United States, saying they're willing to take jobs that "even blacks" won't do.
I hate when reality interferes with best intentions.
My mom still lives in the inner city in DC. The McDonalds around the corner from her has nothing but Hispanic employees. They all looked to be in their 20s to 50s.I asked the manager, who was black, why and he told me that the local black kids don't want to do that kind of work. Let's be honest. A lot of our slum dwellers don't want to do honest, hard work and will go to great lengths to avoid it.
I'm sorry, I was referring to the part of the article about illegal aliens.I posted it on the wrong reply.Sorry Again.
Our Black Americans have been pushed behind the favored race, Latinos.
You are correct. We do have enough of our own citizens who CAN do the work. But we sure have a lot who WONT. I agree with you on all points.
