    LETTUCE WOULD NOT COST $4 A HEAD
    If illegal aliens were deported.

    Most of our red meat, fruits and vegetable, nuts, fish and shell fish is imported. Mostly because its grown cheaper in countries that import to us and we pay less than if it had to be grown here. So if illegal aliens were deported and farmers had to move to Mexico, lettuce would be cheaper than if grown here and harvested by illegal. We would import it from Mexico and it would cost less and not more. Not the propaganda that it would cost $4 if illegal left.
    If illegal aliens left the country and farmers moved their farms to Mexico we would all be much better off. Mexico would be responsible for it’s incarcerated criminals, education for children and medical care for them all. And cheap lettuce for Americans minus the cost of illegal aliens.

    The reason we import so much of anything is because it is cheaper for us. Even cheap illegal labor and cheap votes for politicians. Business that hire illegal aliens and not Americans should move out of the country because it puts a burden on American to subsidize their low wages. Like education, welfare, food stamps, medical care, etc.

    John and Ken of KFI AM 640 in L.A. did a little research a while back and found that deporting illegal alien labor wouldn't mean massive increases in the cost of food or anything else for that matter although some will try to tell you that.

    Germany doesn't use illegal alien slave labor in their agriculture, they merely invented machines to "do the jobs that Germans wouldn't do". We can do the same.

    I disagree on that reasearch and what do they use to come to that conclusion with. We import most of our food because it is cheaper than growing.

    With all the benefits that illegal aliens get at the expense of the taxpayers, we are already paying much more than 4$ for a head of lettuce via those benefits. Do you realize how much illegal aliens are costing us? We did not pay $4 for a head of lettuce with illegal aliens were not doing the work and there were not 20 million illegal aliens in the country. That is more propaganda for illegal immigration.

    Most studies I have read that if illegal aliens were deported we would crash is the propaganda part of “Reconquista!” There are three kind of lies.

    There is a little irony here. Obama and the liberals always push for immigration reform, and that issue revolves around the cheap labor illegal aliens provide. Now that there are a record number of unemployed Americans, Obama is pushing this Job program of his big time. They can’t have it both ways. Either they are concerned with unemployed Americans or they are concerned with preserving cheap illegal immigrant labor. Talk about being between a rock and a hard place. Another irony is the economy. It’s on the skids, kids. No matter who picks our lettuce.

    Lettuce costs $4.00 a head because left wing democrats keep the cost of energy high. It doesn't matter where it is grown, the cost of diesel fuel and gas to get it to market is the biggest factor in the price.

    Do you alway read the label on your fruit and vegetables? What difference does it make? Grown in Mexico or grown by Mexicans? More fruit grown here has made us sick more often then from Mexico. ME, I read all the label and NEVER by from Mexico or any other foreign country. And never eat in Mexican resturants. I never eat out any way. Don't like ohter people handling my food.

    Problem with your statement is this.... it is still grown by illegals who have NEVER been screened for the diseases we are seeing again. They handle our food with little regard for the health of the "workers".

    Nearly every one of the disease break outs we have seen at American farms or grow facilities were caused by sick illegals handling the food.
