    Because Americans won't pick vegetables in 100 degree heat for 5 dollars an hour.

    It doesn't matter who gets the jobs. We need to think about what fuels the illegal immigration and the financial crisis. Like what Ron Paul said about starving the illegal immigrants in the debates, we do not need fences as much as we need to end the welfare, free healthcare, free education, and birthright.

    Illegal immigrants work in many sectors of the U.S. economy. According to National Public Radio in 2005, about 3 PERCENT WORK IN AGRICULTURE; 33 percent have jobs in service industries; and substantial numbers can be found in construction and related occupations (16 percent), and in production, installation, and repair (17 percent).[5] According to USA Today in 2006, about 4 percent work in farming; 21 percent have jobs in service industries; and substantial numbers can be found in construction and related occupations (19 percent), and in production, installation, and repair (15 percent), with 12% in sales, 10% in management, and 8% in transportation.

    LOL! What a dumb statement! If you are born in the U.S. you are not a immigrant.

    Ask your first grade teacher about this.

    Of the roughly one million farm workers in the United States, most are immigrants, and an estimated one-quarter to one-half of them are illegal.

    And every one of them needs to be fired, sent back, and those that hired them need to be fined and/or jailed.

    And all the crops left to rot in the fields because Americans won't pick vegetables in 100 degree heat for 5 dollars an hour
