Did you know that if all the undocument immigrants left,food prices would rise. Someone will have to di the back breaking work.Will you lift and carry 50 lb wood crates in triple digit heat for less than $5 dollars the hour and no benefits? Higher income for field workers = higher food prices at the store?

You know many people gripe about immigrants, but the real issue is would we work as hard for the money they get paid? Sad to say many Americans feel they do not have a very good work ethic. I had a business and it as very hard keeping workers who were reliable.

I meant to say American feel they should get high salaries for not much work, most immigrants are happy to have any job. And as for hospitals, around here there are as many Americans who abuse the welfare system and overwork the hospitals.

This is true, however, if all of the undocumented immigrants left then the construction workers who have lost their jobs because general contractors and sub-contractors can hire the illegals for less would be able to afford to feed their families. Hospitals wouldn't be in financial difficulty because they're forced to treat so many for free and social services agencies would be able to help more needy Americans.
