illegal aliens are going to stay down on the farm when they are given amnesty?

The way I see it, they will be looking to move up to higher paying jobs in manufacturing or service jobs in the city. Those farm jobs will still require the cheap labor that the illegals provide so there will be another influx of more illegals.

I don't understand why there are not protest against the illegals, with the unemployment rate approaching 10% and well over that in many areas, it seems that people would see that the illegals are taking jobs.

Apparently this amnesty is going to be forced upon us regardless of public opinion or common sense. I just don't understand the complicity of our leaders on this issue. Wouldn't it be nice if our representatives began putting the needs of Americans first? That would be a radical change of policy.

The United States is a quasi-socialist nation. It depends on contributions from the 'young' to support the 'old', a system or the redistribution of wealth. The break-even, the point where the 'young' balance the 'old' is around 2.3 kids per family. (The .3 kid allows for natural attrition before reaching adulthood.) That 's just break-even, e.g. no growth.

We are not 'even' -- we do not produce enough offspring (2.3 kids per couple) to support our aging population. We depend on immigrants to come to the US and pay into the social entitlement programs to have enough money for those programs to work.

Notice all of the amnesty programs only grant amnistry to those illegal criminal aliens that are illegally working!?! They would contribute to the system. The illegal criminal aliens that are not working are a burden to the system, would not be permitted a change of status.

I am all for legal immigration and I know that is one of the things that made our country great. The point that I was trying to make is that until we get control of our borders, there will always be "illegals" flooding across to fill those farm or or other low paying jobs.
