Who here works hard? I mean hard physical labor?

who works picking tomatoes under 100+ degrees weather and other jibs like this? some seem to be very anti-immigrants and even more anti illegal. but who here does or is willing to do the jobs that they do? the jobs that most americans won't do.



"There are jobs that nobody wants and few would do, unless they had no other choice, a situation which rarely arises in our country. But they are good jobs that need to be done. By and large these jobs are hard, thankless, dirty, repetitive jobs, at odds with a normal schedule. However, they are at the limits of those that need them. "

    okay but that still doesn't answer the question. the question is not how you feel about illegals., its about jobs and who would do them and what it will do to out economy. I get it you hate illegals. you don't care that this country was built on the back of immmigrants many of them illegals. got it

  • I refer to the post-Civil War South. 90% of their workforce suddenly walks away. Their economy collapses. They never truly recover.

    Granted, illegals do not make up 90% of our workforce, and they are not slaves (though some conditions slaves had were a mite better).... but consider this. All countries have illegal immigrants. No country has completely closed borders. That would be economical suicide. They may be illegal, but without them, things would be no better.
