To date no one has moved into our home, silly argument dude.
When that day comes--and I hope it doesn't, it won't be a silly argument anymore <G>.
I understand all of what you say about lower-paid manual labor. And prefacing that we treat many of our farm workers like crap, and maybe we shouldn't get all holier than thou when we tell other countries that they're treating certain segments of their society as well as the cheap labor they import like shit, what we need to do is to find a way to get those who want to come here and do that work here quickly and legally. That's because many of the natives here don't want to do that work because likely they feel it's beneath them. We're really good at HN1-B visas for educated people with a marketable talent. We treat the rest like garbage.
If they were on the street in Texas, their presence in the US was legal at the time, according to the article.
So it says. However, if so, why should people waste their time with that fickle government app where you have a five-minute window to get a seemingly impossible appointment when you can just cross illegally, get both feet in bounds here and instantly become legal, even if temporarily?
I'm sure Native Americans share your sentiments
I'm sure many would love to get rid of the White devil. And of course we shouldn't preach to anyone re: genocide as we're the champs at it. Upwards of 10 million Native Americans, either by straight out extermination, or stuff like smallpox and alcohol, plus the ones we kicked off their land and effectively penned them in on reservations.
