Re: “What Does It Mean to Be "Illegal" in America?

The Pew Hispanic Center found that only 24% of agricultural workers were illegal aliens. The rest were legal workers. And of course, most illegal aliens don't work in agriculture at all, but alongside Americans, using stolen SS numbers, and doing jobs Americans most definitely will do. Then there's the Dream Act. The whole purpose of the bill is to have US taxpayers subsidize the college educations of illegal aliens and to give them a pathway to the BETTER JOBS Americans really want, will do and are doing.

Re: “Culture of Risk

"It is sad," says Patricia, a migrant from Irapuato, "because I didn't come to steal from this country, but to work, to get ahead. ... You endure a lot to reach this country."
--------------
Too bad Patricia couldn't "endure" what it takes to come here legally: getting an education and skills that an employer could sponsor her for and then applying for a visa to come. And it really doesn't matter whether Patricia INTENDED to steal from this country--fact is, she IS stealing from this country and its people.

Re: “Culture of Risk

"However, there are lots of people who become enflamed over the topic, exploding like hand grenades at the thought of anyone from Mexico placing even one unsanctioned toe on American soil."
----------
Let's see. We have upwards of 20 MILLION people putting their "unsanctioned" BODIES on American soil--and remaining here, demanding amnesty and meanwhile depriving Americans of jobs and using social services and welfare without paying taxes anywhere near what they cost us. So yes, we become "enflamed"--particularly since wonderful Mexico is also these days sending us the "gift" of drug- and people-smuggling related violence, as well as garden variety criminals.
