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.

We are all immigrants.

Except for the native Americans.

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.

Because our gov't want's it that way.

What are you gonna' do about it?

Americans won't do shit about it.

They don't care about the Gun Runner Scandal. They don't care about the Privately owned Federal Reserve ruining the currency. They don't care about Obama's illegal war into Libya.

Americans only care about who wins on Sunday so the gov't will continue to run roughshod over them.

now to debunk this piece of junk article that is false...

This finding is false. The numbers don’t add up.

Since Jan. 2007, Texas has created 384,700 net new jobs. Source: Texas Jobs Statistics from US Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics/Total Nonfarm Seasonally Adjusted Change from Jan. 2007 – Aug. 2011 (Jan. 2007: 10,230,300 to Aug. 2011: 10,615,000)

40% of 384,700 jobs is 153,880 jobs.

The Department of Homeland Security data cited in the CIS report estimates that 60,000 illegal immigrants have arrived in Texas since 2007. Source: Department of Homeland Security report, Page 4, http://www.dhs.gov/xlibrary/assets/statistics/publications/ois_ill_pe_2010.pdf

So if Texas created 384,700 jobs since 2007 and 40% of that is 153,880… and the CIS says 60,000 illegal immigrants arrived in Texas since 2007, then their conclusion must be false and numerically impossible.

This is clearly supposition. Farmers are NOT going to let their crops rot in the fields. Without illegal labor, they will simply be forced to pay a wage in line with the back breaking work, or find ways to automate or mechanize the process. As long as cheap labor is available (legal or illegal), they will continue to use it in order to pad their bottom lines. Simple as that.
