Was thinking at work tonight....

what if there were no Mexicans allowed to work here? (Not sure how many I work with are legal vs. illegal, so I will just say Mexican-which is really the main issue most Arizonans have with them-their skin color.)
Imagine really what would happen for a moment. Who would work their jobs? Would you really be able to do what a dishwasher does, or a busser? WOULD YOU WANT TO? How about construction, gardening, etc.? I really think we are forgetting also how many companies do not pay a true minimum wage to those they know are illegal. So, if the people who want them out have their way-are they prepared to pay more? Are they prepared to do those jobs? I think it would be laughable to see a white American do the work they do. One Mexican can run circles around an American. We have become pussies. So, just today's thought-how would America be different if somehow the law was fulfilled 100%?
I think we would be paying more for everything, and those jobs they do now, would have to pay SIGNIFICANTLY more to have anyone here willing to do it. It is menial, hard labor. What do you think?

Not worried about the legals. They can get a work visa and come here like everyone else. I am worried about the illegals who bring disease and god knows what all to this country. Check on the TB rate in Mexico. Not only that but who is entering this country with them. There are extremists through out the world who wish us harm.

You didn't answer some of the key questions. Mind rereading and doing so? In addition, are you actually suggesting that paperwork and disease are linked? Do you also suggest that those who come here to work to feed their families, want to do harm to the place they now live? This is illogical. I am NOT suggesting that people do not wish to do us harm, god knows we deserve it at this point with what we have done to the innocent civilian population in Iraq for one example. However, show me even one example of Mexican terrorism. (I will not accept common criminal behavior as an example, as white Americans do the same behaviors.) As you are suggesting there is some link between those who come here illegally and are Mexican and their desire to do Americans harm? Show me one example of Mexican extremism as it relates to direct harm to the American public at large. Just one. Demonstrating is not one of them. Thanks for your post.

Yes prices may go up some, but for the most part, profitability of the company would go down some. But at least then tax dollars would be more accurately reported. I have to agree with RM on the disease thing. Whether it is linked to documentation or not isn't the issue. There are less documented aliens from Mexico than there are "un-documented." Do the illegals do harm to those around them? Well, in short, yes and no. Violent crime would in fact go down if there were less of them here. Do *ALL* of them commit violent crimes? No.
