      There were polls from several sources on that website. I didn't see where they were biased one way or the other. I found it interesting that most people agree that illegals are filling the jobs Americans don't want. I don't know who can argue that point, honestly.

        It has simply been a brainwash proudusc. The media and rumormill is good at that .. Along with the fact that too many americans are just plain ignorant and have a "OK Boss" mentality.


        The raw truth is Americans will not do certain jobs for the same money wage that an employer can get away with paying an illegal.

        construction
        Landscape
        restaurant
        garbage collectors.
        meat packing.

        These jobs all used to pay good wages. Now they do not because of illegal workforce. this is what is meant by stealing jobs from americans. These jobs no longer pay good wages and americans will not do them anymore for the current offered wages.

        Ag jobs ar the only jobs that americans traditionally would not do because of pay scale offered. and hence the outside foreighn help was brought in to do at a low pay.

        The Employers are the ones profiting from this shift. Their profits are more at the end of the year and those savings have not been passed on to the consumer over the years.

        I will glady argue that point any day. It is simply a myth,

          sadly, dimwits like proudusc and iperson don't understand basic economics and are easy prey for those who tout this "doing the jobs Americans won't do" BS...if meaningful wages and benefits were offered, many of these jobs would be taken by Americans...but illegals will work for $2 an hour or whatever, without any benefits and thus certain industries feeding at the trough of cheap labor take advantage of this situation....if, however, ALL illegals were deported, there would no longer be a cheap labor pool and, with a diminished supply, well, econ 101 basics states that wages would rise....of course, those with modest double-digit IQs like proud and iperson cannot understand this simple principle....that is why they, just like the morons that send money to tv evangelists, are taken in and believe this happy hor$e$hit about illegals being 'hard working and only doing the jobs Americans won't do...'....

            Immigration Enforcement, not Amnesty, a Priority for Iowans, Finds New Poll by Zogby International

            WASHINGTON, Dec. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ "” Support for enforcement of U.S. immigration laws is an issue that unites Iowans of all political persuasions, finds a new poll conducted by the Zogby International group. The poll, commissioned by the FAIR Congressional Task Force, was conducted between Nov. 29 and Dec. 1 of likely Democratic and Republican caucus participants.

            The poll finds 84 percent of Iowa Republicans and 60 percent of Democrats support "tighten[ing] border security, while increasing enforcement actions against employers who hire illegal immigrants in an effort to convince illegal immigrants to return home." By contrast, only 12 percent of Republicans and 31 percent of Democrats think "we should legalize, or grant amnesty, to current illegal immigrants, while working toward improving immigration enforcement."

            Similarly, 57 percent of Democrats and 80 percent of Republicans believe that "illegal immigration depresses wages for many American workers and imposes financial burdens on taxpayers," while only 26 percent of Democrats and 12 percent of Republicans believe that "illegal immigration is a net benefit to the economy and provides needed labor." The Zogby results reinforce a recent Des Moines Register poll which found that 67 percent of Democrats and 81 percent of Republicans rated immigration as "a key campaign issue."

            "In Iowa, and all across America, people are demanding that our immigration laws be enforced, and reject the idea that in order to enforce our laws that we must first reward the people who have broken them," noted Dan Stein, president of the FAIR Congressional Task Force. "Ordinary Americans believe that our dysfunctional immigration policies are harming their own interests."

            The release of the Iowa poll results coincides with a nationwide talk radio event planned by the FAIR Congressional Task Force on Dec. 27 and 28. Leading Iowa talk radio programs will be joined by nearly two dozen talk radio hosts from around the country who will be broadcasting from Des Moines and focusing on immigration policy. Earlier this year, the influence of talk radio played a central role in the defeat of congressional legislation that would have provided amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.

            "In Iowa, and around the country, there is overwhelming bipartisan support for sensible immigration reform that begins with meaningful enforcement," said Stein. "Americans have made up their minds; what has been lacking is political leadership on this issue."

              AMEN to all that you have said. If my medical insurance, housing, and food were free, I lived in a 3 room house with 15 people and only paid occasional sales tax, I could probably live off of 12 bucks an hour too. The majority of them are 3rd grade educated peasants who are used to living in shanty's with no lights or running watter on an average of less than $1 a day. The only thing they have plenty of is s-ex and babies.

                Then why not place the blame on the employers who are offering jobs at undercut wages rather than the illegals filling them? The employers who are exploiting workers (of any status) should be held accountable. It's easy to target illegals as the reason for a failing economy (or, for anything else). But illegal aliens aren't the driving force behind the problem. I would say it is more likely greed on the part of the employers.

                  Why do you think E-verification is being rammed down the throats of the corrupt corporate elite? Obviously if there are no magnets (i.e. jobs, welfare,etc.) the majority will self deport, the majority of us have been saying this forever. The problem is Calderon, Senor Boosh, the ACLU, LaRaza, LULAC, churches and the majority of the corporate elite continue to go to court and fight cities and towns all over America who are trying to enforce the laws and build the wall that will send a clear message and automatically create a mass exodus. All of those who gain on a personal level from the influx of cheap labor are in the courts daily fighting to maintain their cheap illegal alien workforces. It's cheap for them but its costing the middleclass taxpayer dearly in dollars and lives. While the bill funding the wall was passed into law a couple of years back, it has yet to be built. All the round ups and deportations in the world will not stop the flow until they cut off the jobs and freebies. Most that are deported simply come right back.

                  According to Calderon:

                  "wherever there is a Mexican that is Mexico".

                  The sheer arrogance is blood curdling.


                  The Mexican government, he said, would continue to "energetically protest unilateral actions" of the U.S. Congress on the immigration front that he said "exacerbate the persecution of undocumented Mexicans in the U.S." He boasted that Mexican consulates in the United States have been buttressed to protect the rights of millions of Mexicans living there illegally.

                  "Wherever there is a Mexican," he said, "that is Mexico."

                  U.S. politicians have frequently accused Mexico of failing to produce enough jobs to entice young Mexicans to stay at home instead of risking crossing the border illegally. In remarks that appeared to be aimed at those critics, Calderón said 618,000 jobs had been created in the first eight months of his administration, equaling the best-case scenario predictions for the full year.

                  Protesters massed outside while Calderón spoke, but there were far fewer than in months past, when allegations that he had won the election fraudulently stoked emotions in the capital.

                  As he neared the end of his address, Calderón -- often serious and stiff in public -- broke into a smile.

                    Dear Dubya: America Don't Need No Stinkin' Reform!
                    By: John Lillpop

                    With all due respect to President George W. Bush and his Mexican underwriters, America does NOT need immigration reform, comprehensive or otherwise.

                    What this nation desperately needs is a President and Congress that will apply due diligence on behalf of America, rather than working solely for huge U.S. corporations, illegal aliens, and the Mexican government.

                    In other words, Mr. Bush, you can solve the immigration nightmare overnight by simply living up to your constitutional responsibility to defend America "against all enemies, foreign and domestic."

                    Or to put it more succinctly, Mr. President: Secure our borders and enforce existing immigration laws. Period!

                    Forget about "comprehensive" reform, which is nothing more than code-speak for amnesty.

                    The president is reportedly a student of history. Perhaps he would benefit by boning up on recent immigration history.

                    Namely:

                    In 1986, the United States adopted the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) (Simpson-M***oli Act, IRCA, and Pub. L. 99-603, Nov. 6, 1986, 100 Stat. 3359). Go here: http://www.answers.com/topic/immigra...ol-act-of-1986

                    IRCA was enacted to reduce illegal immigration, which was a problem for the American economy. Three million illegal aliens were granted amnesty as a result of IRCA.

                    The new law would have worked–if it had been enforced. Unfortunately, both Democrat and Republican administrations have failed (refused?) to enforce the IRCA.

                    As a result, twenty years later America is saddled with upwards of an additional 30 million illegal aliens.

                    Most distressing is the fact that the "surge" from south of the border continues unabated, in spite of 9/11 and the threat posed by terrorists.

                    Apparently the president would have the American people believe that securing the borders 8,000 miles from home is vital to U.S. homeland security, but that securing our own borders is not vital.

                    And how can that be, Mr. President?

                    Is it because, in your mind, illegal aliens are "good hearted, hard working folks" simply looking for a better life?

                    And does that description also apply to the scores of millions of third-world peasants still in Mexico and other Latin nations, thinking of heading north to America?

                    All are good hearted and hard working? Without a single Jihadist, or potential terrorist, in their midst?

                    The 1986-amnesty disaster proves that America needs secured borders and rigid enforcement of our laws.

                    Or, to put the issue in terms even most illegal aliens could understand:

                    America don't need no stinkin' immigration reform!
