  •  immigrant != lazy (14+ / 0-)

    the lazy people from country x stay in country x...

    so if someone manages to get here from somewhere else for the purpose of working...i don't see how that makes them lazy

    I met a guy who runs a small farm in VA....he had local workers and people from Salvador...he said his labor equation was "one Salvadoran equals three rednecks"

      years ago or 20. How have we lost touch with the immigrant experience? The immigrants from country x are also often faced with a language they don't understand or speak well, customs, laws and practices that are foreign to them, different climate, racism, and the loss of family/community support. Immigration takes courage and determination.

      Consider how few Americans travel abroad. Then consider how few Americans leave the U.S. to start a new life in another country, say China or India. All the insulting adjectives that Coulter applies to Hispanics don't leap to mind to describe these few hardy American pioneers.

      Immigrants from any country are of the same spirit - ironically, these are the exact values the TeaParty/GOP professes to promote!
