    The lack of immigration enforcement is FOSTERING this substandard work ethic.
    Why would a business owner pay a higher wage, when there exists an unlimited number of bodies standing out front of the hardware store, who are willing to take pesos w/ NO BENEFITS.

    I think I'd rather have illegal immigrants picking fruit in the U.S. than importing the fruit from south america. It's not like if they enforce immigration laws you're suddenly going to see americans picking the fruit.

    Now, you might see americans cleaning your toilets at work. So that's something.

    The farm workers are not the problem. They are NOT the illegals. I frequent different wharehouses, factories, restaurants daily. They know that they have taken California back.
    Our country should impose the same laws on ILLEGALS that their country would impose on us.
    The ONLY reason the laws are not imposed here is to benefit corporate profit.

    I'd rather have domestically grown fruit picked by Americans. This can easily and cheaply be accomplished with enough land mines and machine guns on the border and the appropriate import duties.

    Exactly! Just keep fucking the American worker. Drive wages down to levels of bare subsistence. Make Americans so desperate that they are even willing to send their children into the fields. Then you can have domestically grown fruit picked by Americans for the same prices that Mexicans charge.

    Sounds like a great country.

    Where wages are cheap, life is cheap. Where labor is dear, life is dear.

    Ummm... keeping out cheap imported labor will cause wages in the US to rise.

    Homo Economicus. A Legendary Creature, like Bigfoot, claimed to exist by Pseudoscientists.

    True. I'm not sure why, but it's true.

    Hey come on it's not like you can buy a brown paper sack of tomatoes anymore for fifty cents. I think we've beaten that no body can afford nor wants to work farm wages argument thing to death.

    Especially when you consider agriculture is a bigger Big Business than ever in the History of America. The family farm is gone, it's big Ag, posting record profits, as the cost of groceries go through the roof. Plus it helps when you have a first lady chiding people into eating over priced produce from Whole foods and the like.

    To hear you Yokels, tell it, farms are these minority owned entities that if all of the wet backs were deported, America would starve. The only thing that would starve is Iwog's commodity profits.

    Jimmy Joe Bob Smith, doesn't pick apples for a few dollars a day.

    Why?

    You think starving Americans will demand more money than starving Mexicans?

    You advocate the elimination of every safety net federal program including all welfare and food stamps. What possible reason could employers have for raising wages in your world?

    The correct answer is none. You don't want to raise the standard of living by eliminating illegal immigrant labor. You want to lower the standard of living TO immigrant labor. I defy you to point to a single reason in your world why that wouldn't happen.
