Re: “Trace Adkins Tells Crowd to 'Blow' Him If They Don't Like Sheriff Joe Arpaio

I agree with Y27 . Ultimately the companies who hire the illegals are to blame for the illegal immigrants in this country. However, something that should be brought to American's attention is the fact that major companies all over the USA have for some time now, moved their production to Mexico. They keep the final assembly of their product in the USA, to allow themselves to legally claim their product is a product of the USA. Thousands if not millions of people have literally lost there jobs to foreigners in this fashion. These jobs lost are not jobs that no one wanted because they are low paying jobs, (as most jobs taken by illegals are) they are top notch high paying positions. Cessna, 3m, Nike, and the list goes on. My sister an employee for twenty years with Cessna was informed last month that they're closing down their production lines within two years, and moving it to Mexico. They have already done this with other lines within their company. They are paying the Mexicans $8.00 a day along with two meals a day. She makes $25.00 an hour doing the same job this person will be doing for $8.00 a day!
What I would like to know is why isn't there something being done about this? Where is the nationwide coverage on this? I mean common this is an outrage to have your job literally stolen out from under you and you have no chance of competing to keep it. Will it eventually end up the Americans running and sneaking across the boarder illegally to obtain employment? If American based companies continue to move their production as they are, I see it happening sooner than later.
