  Where They Really Work
Until today it was my contention that, rather than doing jobs Americans simply are unwilling to do (as illegal alien supporters claim) alien invaders instead keep wages low by doing those jobs for less. But today I was proven wrong by a recent Pew Hispanic Center report.

According to the report (The Size and Characteristics of the Unauthorized Migrant Population in the U.S.) illegals are not doing the jobs Americans won't. In fact, a great many of them are taking jobs in some not so lowly occupations that rightfully belong to American citizens.

Almost a third (31%) of illegals are employed in non-professional, service occupations, such as, building and ground cleaning and maintenance and food preparation and serving. Nearly 1/5th (19%) are employed in construction or mining. 15% are in production, installation and repair and a mere 4% work in farming. (So much for the lie that our agriculture industry will screech to a halt without these bums!)

The report further shows that these criminals are taking quite a share of these jobs away from real Americans. They represent 24% of all workers employed in farming occupations, 17% in cleaning, 14% in construction and 12% in food preparation industries. They also make up a very large share of all workers in some occupations. They take up 36% of all insulation positions and 29% of all roofing and drywall installation jobs. They also steal 27% of all butcher and food processing employment.

So, if they're NOT doing the jobs that are "beneath" real Americans, as the liars in government and media would have us believe, then why the heck do we need them? If all they're doing is taking jobs from real Americans, why not send them all back where they came from?

There are 12 million of these sorry freeloaders in our country. I can afford to send one back. Now I just need 12 million friends to chip in. Who's next?
Count me in.
I'm in!

11,999,997 to go.....
Thanks for that post. The Pew Report merely confirms what I too have suspected for quite a long time. I can also afford to send one back.
