Default Re: "Legal" Immigration into the United States: 1 Million per year

there's a pilgrims pride chicken processing plant about an hour from where i live in moorefield west virginia. my brother worked there for about 5 years. it's odd that tyson can only get mexicans to do the job but pilgrims pride can find americans to man the job...they also only start out at about $9 an hour.

I believe it. I had a friend from Israel over a few months ago and her visa expired. That's when I found out a lot of info about immigration that I didn't know (while helping her get her papers straight). Oklahoma is supposed to have the toughest laws on the books, but if the cops pull them over (state-wide) AND find out their illegal, they have to let them go in the field. A Homeland Security officer has to be RIGHT THERE in order to take them in for illegal immigration; but that never happens because the Feds really don't kick it with state officials and WILL NOT come out if called by state officials. So in other words, even in the toughest state in the union, the laws STILL don't work because one agency choses to work with the other (for some strange reason).
If your an illegal, you basically have to get busted for a class A felony before you have to worry about deportation. But don't worry, just go to Mexico and come back with a new identity and you get a new start.

Americans will do the work. They're just not willing to get paid under the table with no rights, benefits, and for peanuts. I went to college in a small rural town and $9/hr would've drawn a line of students willing to do the work on the night shifts.

We don't have an illegal immigration problem, we have an illegal employment problem. Companies want to pay workers 3rd world wages. I think this story happened in Nebraska (somewhere around here). Some big city guys set up a meat packing plant in a pissant town with illegal immigrant workers. If you live around the rural Midwest you see how all these towns are drying up, so this was like a godsend to the community. But, ICE or someone raided the plant and basically shut them down. Big city guys pack up and move somewhere else. Town goes back to crap.

Big Ag is killing off the livelihoods of their biggest supporters.
