Subject: Big business needs illegals to pick crops.

On the one hand, they rail against illegals. On the the other hand, they exploit them and depend upon them for their business model.

This is indicative of modern American life--if the corporations had to pay Americans ("even blacks," as Vicente Fox alluded to) fair wages to harvest crops, they'd not hesitate to pass the cost on to consumers, even though they're making record profits. Illegals will keep streaming in for shit wages doing backbreaking labor because big biz depends on them for the bottom line and profit, profit, profit.

Similarly, American jobs are going to India to keep profits for the few obscenely high. These people are not patriots, they don't give a shit about America or Americans. Personal profit trumps all.
