121. Remember the day in May when the Mexicans vowed to walk out, as a means to show
how valuable they are to us?

Guess what didn't happen; for any number of reasons and more if the immigrant was *gasp* an illegal alien...

Human nature. People want what's comfortable and familiar. But some also think the American dream is about working 20 hours a day being a maid and running cleaning stores despite coming here from Nairobi with a degree in IT... (a small biz advocate spun the above into making it sound great... at 20 hours a day, it's not a dream but a nightmare.)
