We absolutely depend on people illegally in this country to keep us from starvation?  Uncle Pat's econ 101:  When there isn't illegal alien labor to pick the crops, the wage offered will rise until someone takes the job.   Wink  Clever how that works, huh?  Smiley

What happens when wages rise, don't the crop growers have to charge more for their product?

I've often heard people say that they just can't find good help & I've always told them you get what you pay for so obviously you arent paying enough for good workers.

That's right - they do.  So consumers will end their part of the whole corrupt system: being able to buy what amounts to black market food.  The higher prices they pay will be offset by the huge reduction in taxes they pay for social services for the illegal aliens, from government school education to prison incarceration.

Wait, illegal aliens have the right to be incarcerated in our prisons and get care, food, and lodging.

According to Obama, non-citizens also have the right to vote, and he even ENCOURAGED non-citizens to vote.

Listen carefully to the young illegal woman asking Obama a question, then, listen real closely to Obama's reply to her, below:



The democrat party KNOWS damn well that illegals ARE voting ILLEGALLY, and Obama's very own words in the short video, does CONFIRM that he ENCOURAGES it, and there is no way around that, NO matter how many democrat liberals TRY to DENY it.  Grin
