Oh well, all Hispanic ppl aren't poor, minimum wage workers.Agreed. I apologize if it seemed like I was making that implication. There are clearly lots of highly educated Latins here.Building contactors hire people who will work for substandard wages with no benefits and poor working conditions. Emigrants, generally undocumented, happen to fit the bill, regardless of their skill, so they are the ones who get hired. But if the U.S. actually did keep out illegal immigrants, the U.S. economy would be on its knees. Nothing would get done.
