They are illegal ALIENS, not immigrants. The "precious few" folk who are NOT out there are creating machinery to pick the crops. Those are the better and higher paying jobs, and a flood of cheap labor (cheap until you count the over-crowded schools, ERs, and jails) puts off the improvement in the lives for all. How much in SS do you think a minimum wage worker actually pays? Now 53% of the hispanic babies are born out of wedlock. It is a myth that most come here to work. It is not "racist" (a stupid term - we are of one race) to tell the truth.
