WASHINGTON – JULY 28: Dozens of U.S.-born children from across the country traveled to the White House with their undocumented parents to march and demonstrate against recent deportations July 28, 2010 in Washington, DC. Organized by CASA de Maryland, Familias Latinas Unidas, and other organizations, marchers describing themselves as ‘Obama Orphans,’ or children whose parents have been deported, called on President Barack Obama to keep his campaign promise of comprehensive immigration reform.

Nowadays bloggers and their momma have an opinion about immigration but my million dollar question for the day. Who is going to be doing the jobs of the folks that are deported? Are unemployed Americans workers willing to take the jobs of immigrant workers? NO! ‘Most American folks snicker and sneer at the thought of taking an job that pays below $3 an hour including myself. After watching this video and I heard folks being paid $1.90 an hour…what a freaking insult! Sounds like slave wages and for an employer to expect someone to work in sweltering heat at a very low wage? Jeez! What about those dirty restrooms that most folks could give a hoot about? I am just saying if those are the jobs that are being stolen away from Americans than someone has a plan to fill them with higher wages to attract American workers? What jobs are available right now for the working class American people? The last time I check a high proportion of American people with a college education could not find a job….thousands of resumes are sent to employers for one professional position? Go figure…students that are graduating from college are finding out that a college degree is worthless right now! How are students going to pay back their student loan with a gig that pays minimal wage and handle the basic necessities? Your lucky if you can find an McDonald gig…senior citizens have to go back to work when they are suppose to be enjoying their golden years….so much for social security benefits covering them until the good lord calls them home….IRA, retirement plan, savings…what the hell is that? Most folks today are unemployed and underemployed long before this immigration debate started…..folks were not able to find jobs long before President Obama took office. We all know someone who is either unemployed, underemployed and struggling to make ends meet.
