Why is it that "Illegals" (whether they are or not, if you are hispanic they think you are illegal) get blamed for "taking all the jobs", yet there are several small towns in this country that are going under right now because their major support factories were raided and all the immigrants were deported.
Those factories cannot find enough workers to maintain production now, and as a result, the American workers are laid off. Now, the surrounding towns are shutting down one business at a time due to lack of income. This was on 20/20.
Where are all the Americans that were crying about the Illegals taking the jobs? These jobs are now open. These big companies desperately need employees so they can stay/get back in, business. The towns need the factory/employees to stay afloat.

well 2 years ago there was a big ant-immigrant sentiment here. raids were being done on a daily basis. Many farms and nurseries had signs posted that they were hiring. pay was minimum wage. Legal minimum wage. signs were up for months and months and the jobs were not filed. the end result was a tremendous loss pf crops. Driving through the farms you could see all the tomatoes, oranges, papayas etc. rotting on the floor cause there were not enough workers to pick them. that is sad. and definitely raises the price for the consumers.I think employers should hire legal workers and pay taxes, but there have to be legal workers willing to do those jobs.
