Id like to see where you got those numbers at because the US Census Bureau has never released numbers on the official amount of people of Mexican heritage living in the US.

I didn't read the whole thread so I'll just chime in at the end. Let's apply supply and demand economics to this. After losing the most reliable work force I've ever known, there will only be a couple of us left to do it. I already do most of it myself, as far as cutting and apps are concerned, so it won't be a big leap to do it all. With only a few of us left, it will drive up the labor rate massively. I'll get to charge $200 ph just like my lawyer.

I would never apply supply and demand economics to justify breaking of the law.

Well, the Mexican people got what they wanted. Amnesty. I'm sure that will deter efforts to come over here illegally.

wrong sir, it was built on a "we are your friends, give us what we want, or we will kill u and take it..." and, so it began. i wasn't there, so i don't know for sure, but my thinking is- the founding fathers, were the biggest scumbags, who ever lived. they created a nation built on lies, deception, and violence. look back thru history (as it was documented) the almighty whitey, was a thief, and got his way thru intimidation and force. he "masterminded" everything, but wouldn't dare break a sweat for a days wages, to accomplish it. so he used slaves, and immigrants, to satisfy his needs.
YEAH...SO WHAT!!!
