    Blaming Obama for the shutdown is the gross distortion.

    I don't want congress to be productive.

    The more congress "produces" the more it costs the taxpayer

    Provide credible evidence that Obama "in a hissy fit because of the shutdown he spent money closing memorials that are open 24/7 just to be an asshole".

    Minority outreach!

    You are correct. Deporting millions of illegals will also help American minorities.

    My question is, when you deport these millions of illegals, who is going to do all the shit work in the country?

    Either the wages will be increased to the point where Americans do it, automation will be developed to do it, or we will come up with some sort of guest worker program where people can follow the law, come here to work and then go home.

    I realize you really believe that, but that doesn't make it so. Provide backup....otherwise you're just blowing hot air.

    How much legislation is the right amount for congress to generate each secession? I would rather have no new legislation than bad legislation.

    Well, I know in my area, illegals mostly cost the public schools, cost the local hospitals, cost the criminal justice system.
    They also drive down wages for unskilled Americans and therefore drive up the costs of our welfare system.
    I mow my own lawn, so I don't see much benefit. How much do they benefit you?

    They benefit me in that I am able to get vegetables and fruit at the local grocery store at a reasonable price....you do know that they do pay taxes, so I don't see how they cost the public schools.....also, they are not able to get Obamacare.....

    You still haven't provided any backup to your beliefs....so how do you even know that is happening? It's probably just Republican/conservative mythology.

    I wonder how long farmers in Alabama are going to support their Republican leaders, considering their recent action?

    The picking of blueberries, tomatoes and squash largely requires hand labor, McMillan said Monday, and the work is no longer getting done.

    McMillan said he recently visited a farmer who has 75 acres of squash in north Jackson County.

    "It was just rotting in the fields because he had half the labor," McMillan told The Huntsville Times editorial board. "That's a fact. What I'm telling you is what I've seen."

    In June, the new Republican majority in Montgomery passed a sweeping 72-page act that is widely considered the toughest crackdown on illegal immigration in the country. The act not only allows local police to detain people suspected of being in the country illegally, the law also makes it a crime for illegal immigrants to look for work in Alabama.
