So what happened to the BDC liberals who spent the last 4.5 years screaming about letting illegal immigrants in the country? But now that there's an R next to an issue that might help them, well, now it's not cool?
I don't know about "letting illegal immigrants in the country".
Personally, I've been talking about immigration reform, the dream act, and giving responsible immigrants opportunities to work, raise a family, got to school and naturalize.
But forgive some of the poor immigrants (or americans for that matter) if they think that wiping some rich dude's ar(s)e isn't quite what they had in mind.
If the illegals are really "taking american jobs", then why are the jobs listed those that americans simply don't want to do...AND those in which americans routinely are not hired?
Heck, with that much shoe-shining, pool scraping and sock-darning to do, why is the unemployment rate so high...??
Jobs Americans "don't want to do"? You mean like dish washing for example? Funny how my friend who owns two restaurants in Newton doesn't employ any illegals. Nor does my friend who owns a landscaping company, nor the father of a kid I coached who also owns a landscaping company.
My wife's parents have landscaper who doesn't employ illegals. My wife, before we met had a landscaper who didn't employe illegals.
Point being there are Americans who will do the jobs people like you seem to think they won't do.
