Ship them out! Don’t you want to get rid of these illegals? They pick all of our fruit and work in fields to harvest local crops. Long hours with low pay is their reward for working tireless jobs. You have wanted your lawn mowed or have hard landscaping, who do you hire? But who cares. Have you honestly looked around the valley and see who is out in the hot sun and working with conditions normal people would not do? When is the last time you saw anyone besides immigrants working under those conditions?
Illegals are also buying from local merchants and paying sales tax and fuel taxes like everyone else. They even rent apartments, eat out, patronize theaters, department stores, grocery stores. Gee I did not see anyone not taking their money. Lots of motels and businesses use them also, because they can hire them on low wages and long hours.
OK, now that we have gotten rid of 11 million illegals, it’s time for U.S. citizens to take their place in the fields, orchards, do landscaping, construction, in motels cleaning and working under questionable conditions. Come on, America, step up and do the work they used to do.
