    is a civil right...especially because current citizens are struggling so badly to have a realistic path to work legally.

    •  Well... (4+ / 0-)

      my understanding is farms in Georgia are really hurting now that they cleared out their fields of "illegals" who were otherwise unable to obtain work permits. As expected, Americans are now all over those jobs!

      Not.

      Can we stop scapegoating immigrants for our society's ills? I know so many people who are smart and entrepreneurial and could actually help create businesses if they were allowed to! Why can't we look at this from that angle? Why is it that they are "taking" from us?

      •  How is any of that relevant? (0+ / 0-)

        I'm saying there's no civil right to a job in the US, otherwise our unemployment wouldn't be a woeful 9%+.
