Amen, Brother! I worked for several years in the Poultry Industry. Tyson Foods, Inc. was very beneficial to stabilize the economy in the Southeast. That's why we are growing by leaps and bounds, and, you guys are all LOSING population and your local economies are imploding. Look at what happened in Sedalia, MO. Tyson bought a Feedmill that was wore slap-out, and an empty metal building that had been a Ham 'n Bacon Curing Plant. At first, the locals there protested. Low wages, Immigrant Labor, Loss of Independance, Blood Hatred for Vertical Integrators, etc., divided the town for about 15 years. NOW, Realtos and car dealers in Central Missouri would cry like babies if Tyson Pulled out. A steady, Mid-level paycheck with a company with the highest benefits (health and life insurance, stock purchase, retirement, etc.) beats the living heck outta no job. It's as simple as that.chambero said:First thing - he who controls the land runs the country in all honesty.
Secondly - growth rates are never constant. This is one of the tricks statisticians love to play to scare people on a variety of subjects.
A couple of things will mitigate the worst case scenario.
1. Immigrants will lower their reproductive rates over the long term while they live as they become more affluent just like us. It may take a while, but it'll happen.
2. The middle class is growing in Mexico and will eventually result in less people wanting to leave.
That's really why our country tries to help them so much. You can't hire enough border patrol agents and build a wall tall enough to keep a man out whose children are starving. Would you stay put?
This is a complicated issue. Our country still does depend on labor that most long-time residents flat out will not perform (as least at wages WE want to pay).

agree with this statement one hundred percent as i drive behind them every day in my hybrid or take the train. they are full of more entitlement than any illegal alien.
Like, I said, man, I have a different viewpoint, because the ratio of immigrant to native, is the polar opposite here in the middle of the continent. Believe it , or not, the Latinos here didn't skip work on those 2 protest-march-days. They all said, "Crazy, No Good. White people get berry,berry angry,when Hispanos get 'in yo' face. We like beeeeeg check. No work, No Money". The folks here worked, hard as any other day. I understand things are the opposite out there.knabe said:Get over your prejudices.
this is the part i have a problem with. i have a prejudice against those who would benefit by breaking any law and would stand to benefit by breaking more laws because it's complicated. prejudice against a race, i firmly reject. where is the fasttracking for other races. since there is none, our policy is prejudice against other races, and against the interests of law abiding citizens, as usual, when the percentage of illegal and foreign born exceeds native born, which has traditionally been around 85 to 15%. when this ratio is 50% as it is in LA county, you bet i am prejudice against prejudice. more racism doesn't cure the absence of prejudice.
