Ahhh, there you go. I don't see you differentiate between US born latinos/legal latino immigrants and latinos who got here illegally so I'm going to assume all Latinos=illegal immigrants=problems to you. It's not like Latinos become criminals or bums when they drop out of HS either.
Latinos go to College at a lower rate than any other ethnic group.
That is true. So? Let's get to the root of the problem and first of all, help them get
to college. Let's try and fix that without "assuming" all latinos= illegals.
The speculation is that further high immigration rates of uneducated immigrants is bad for this country-true or false?
I could wipe my ..... with "speculation". Specially based on FAIR's credentials. lol
The speculation is that further high latino immigration rates make it more difficult for latinos already here to move up the ladder and make more money.
More "speculation". So all this is actually about....helping latinos in the US? How noble of "FAIR" and you. How sweet.
Since you purposely grouped all latinos into one category, I shall do the same and finish by saying that I sure want to get my hands on those latino $1- trillion
- by- 2010 purchasing dollars. I have no doubt that there is no
worst case scenario- not even one by FAIR- capable of offsetting the benefit of 1 TRILLION
dollars into our economy.
I urge everyone to research that joke called "FAIR" and latino workforce and economic numbers. Maybe you'll also find the thread starter's argument shifts quite telling.
Edit: By the way. I do think porous borders and illegal immigration are problems we need to deal with pronto.
I believe in workers' programs and amnesty to those who have been here paying taxes and contributing to our economy long enough.
