For two years, the U.S. has pursued the culprits behind the 9/11 atrocities with a vengeance that has shocked and awed ally and enemy alike. But even the devastating attacks on the Afghan and Iraqi regimes don't illustrate the true scope of the campaign, DOUG SAUNDERS reports. While everyone was preoccupied with the fireworks, Washington has quietly deployed thousands of agents in a secretive struggle that may last a lifetime<br><br>

I'm with ya all the way 'cept here...............just what do you think our illegal immigrant problem is?<br>
Please don't be sold on the Rush Limbaugh theory that this is the big drain on our economy and yada, yada, yada. 'Tis not so, there are studies that show they contribute FAR more than they take......................<br><br>
.................not the least of which is affordable food on our table every night. I daresay our economy would COLLAPSE if all undocumented workers were sent home.<br><br><br>

200 million every year? Where did that number come from?<br><br>
And..........it wouldn't happen (even in much lesser numbrs) because there is not that much work here. They wouldn't come in droves if there was nothing for them to live on.<br><br><br>

You listen to the news all the time, NM. You hear how concerned they always are with gas prices? Do you understand because it is such a HUGE commodity that spikes in price affect the economy very quickly and very negatively?<br><br>
Now imagine what a huge commodity food is. ALL FOOD (processed food is processed from something real somewhere in it's history <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> ) would be impacted if a) skilled workers became unavailable and b) ppl had to be paid a living wage.<br><br>
The economy would collapse. It is right on the brink now.<br><br><br>

Sorry to veer off-topic <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">high immigration and the resultant population growth are destroying the American dream and quality of life for all Americans.</td>
</tr></table></div>
from the first article you put up.<br><br>
It is <i>because</i> of immigration and <i>because</i> of population growth that I am here living the American dream.<br><br><br>
Those articles go a long way to prove only how much we exploit the immigrant workers, NM. Proves they aren't here *stealing* jobs and getting wealthy................<br><br>
And just to note the articles talked abt <i>immigrants</i> not <i>illegal</i> immigrants.<br><br><br>
If we keep going maybe we should start a new thread?<br><br><br>

Hilary, this is Rush Limbaugh - a sensationalistic, mouthpiece that spews hate on the airways each and every day.<br><a href="http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/home/today.guest.html" target="_blank">http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/home/today.guest.html</a><br><a href="http://www.rushonline.com/index2.htm" target="_blank">http://www.rushonline.com/index2.htm</a><br><br><br><br>
