10. As evidenced by John McCain's town hall meeting yesterday.

That audience was white as Casper the Friendly Ghost but a lot less friendly. They want armed guards on the border. The GOP launched this ship of fools now they're trying to put the genie back in the bottle and it isn't working.

What they forget is that businesses have always been in favor of illegal immigrants because they could pay them less and get no complaints out of them. It was the perfect setup. I can recall in the 60s and 70s living in LA when they used to come into factories and round up those who were undocumented every once in a while. I also recall that when Blacks (who previously held the low paying service industry jobs) were trying to get more benefits, and better working conditions, we started seeing more undocumented workers replacing Blacks in those factories.

Those business owners than, are the 1%ers today, who want to drive wages down as far as they can and keep them there. A steady flow of undocumented immigrants has always been their tool of choice. who want to drive wages down as far as they can and keep them there.
