  •  And then there's the flip side..... (0+ / 0-)

    This claim from Rep. Smith seemed spurious

    Mr. Moulitsas’s claim that illegal immigrants hold jobs that Americans won’t do is completely false. Statements that Americans are not willing to do these jobs demean the hardworking Americans who actually do this work on a daily basis.

    It must be the dreaded "liberal lamestream media" that's not reporting on how all those jobs in Georgia's fields are actually being filled, by US citizens no less, eager, enthusiastic to work at slave wages, with lots of physical pain and exposure to toxic chemicals in the irrigation's runoff as added bonuses.

    Yep, liberal media blackout, that's far more believable than those jobs not being filled due to lousy conditions and even lousier pay.
