    because my kids are looking for a job. You are at least transparent about your motives. Self and family first! To hell with the heathens from below the border!

    •  Do you have children? (0+ / 0-)

      You are probably 28, with some airy-fairy notion of the wonderfulness of it all, and the brotherhood of man. I am so impressed.

      Life is not fair. Carter was right. And if it isn't fair for you, tough shit.

      What we have today is GOVERNMENT RULES that make it cheaper to hire immigrants. J-1s for instance are hired and the boss does not pay SS, medicare or unemployment. Like that McDOnald's guy in Massachusetts. No taxes for the scabs he brings in.

      Why any "democrat" favors scab cheap labor is beyond me.  Are you a Democrat?

      •  Nope, incorrect, sorry. Thanks for playing. (0+ / 0-)

        If desperately poor people want to come here to improve their lives, as a progressive and a compassionate person I support them doing so. The American displaced is not as desperately poor. I've spent enough time in the Third World to recognize which group of people are more in need of our protection. And it's them. That said, I understand why you want that job over them. That is an age-old emotional position.

        Just not a compassionate or moral one.

        •  You are confused (0+ / 0-)

          I have an excellent job, in which I make good money. I go to Europe, I buy wine, I am a comfortable person.

          But I am not an idiot. I support jobs for Americans first.

          And I can see why you have compassion for Americans. Not having children, you don't give a crap about your fellow citizens.

          I find that morally repugnant. It's disgusting to hate your own country.
