    First they came for the farm workers, and I didn't speak out because I am not a farm worker.
    Then they came for the janitors and nannies, and I did not speak out, because I am not a janitor or nanny.
    Next they came for the construction workers and factory workers, and I did not speak out, because I am in construction or factory work.
    Then they came for the IT Jobs, and there was no one left to speak for me.

    You need a license to drive, a license to run a business, but any idiot can buy a gun.

      when people told me their nannies were dependent on them to stay in the U.S.  

      Years ago, one couple had a university graduate from abroad as their 24 hour nanny because they filed for her papers and she was theirs until her visa came through.

      I am making up for lost time now.

      in the course of a single year, planting trees for major timber companies became a job Americans wouldn't do.

      "with rights come responsibilities." Wrong. Responsibilities continue to exist even if you abdicate your rights.

        becomes a job that Americans won't do.

        And that would be all jobs.

        The middle class is being destroyed, and the morons who back illegal immigration, unlimited job visas, and other things are the useful idiots who are helping them.
