    We tried this before under Reagan. Blanket amnesty for all illegals. Oh sure, we'll secure the borders later... Never happened. Now, they want to do it again. Millions and millions, great for wage suppression and government assistance. Country club GOP type wants cheap labor and Dems want votes. Working middle class (especially union workers) lose.

    This whole situation really sucks.

    Every time time a bad storm blows through all the illegal roofers pile in their Texas plates pickup trucks and hop on the highway and undercut American wages .

    Mcdonalds is holding job fairs for more cheap latin and Mexican illegal labor. Awesome!

    I THINK MINIMUN WAGE LAWS IS A BIG FACTOR ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION ,IT'S A WIN-WIN SITUATION FOR POLITICIANS AND A LOSS FOR US TAX PAYERS.

    A higher minimum wage is a big win for tax payers. $15hr gets all these working poor workers off welfare and taxpayer assistance and will also push wages up in other areas which is what this country needs.

    Not to mention fueling the economy with a living wage.

    Min. wage jobs are designed to be your working life stepping stones , a place to start getting real work life experiences .
    Anyone who has not moved on to better paying jobs has some serious character flaws.
    Raising the min. wage to a living wage is a flawed concept .
    First thing that happens is less workers will be hired .
    The second thing will be businesses that can't show a profit will close , thus increasing more unemployment .

    Which will also increase prices. If a company increases their labor costs, they raise prices, lose lose for everyone.

    Via Breitbart:

    A Border Patrol agent is suffering multiple head fractures after an illegal alien attacked him and bashed his head in with a rock, according to several Border Patrol agents who spoke with Breitbart Texas on the condition of anonymity. The attack occurred near the Ajo Station of the Tucson Sector.

    The agent was new to the U.S. Border Patrol agency. According to the sources, the illegal alien tackled the agent and used a rock to bash the agent’s head.

    A drug trafficking group was apprehended earlier in the day, according to the sources. When the agent was attacked, he reportedly deployed intermediate weapons such as OC spray and a baton. One Border Patrol agent source told Breitbart Texas, “After the Ferguson ordeal, agent’s are so apprehensive about using their firearm that incidents like these may become more frequent. Agents are so hesitant that it is actually risking our lives.”

    One Border Patrol source told Breitbart Texas that the agent was taken by an air ambulance and is currently conscious with multiple severe head fractures.

    You cite a right wing think tanks OPINION based upon a "GUESS" and they include this paragraph in that opinion..

    "Gitis concedes that an unusually cold winter may have had an impact on overall job growth, but notes that states that raised their minimum wages “experienced relatively warm weather” than states in which wage laws remained unchanged. He also points out that other factors may have come into play."

    Really?

    This is suppose to be scientific?

    A think tank with no access to any real data, supplies a "GUESS" as to job growth and then lays blame onto the minimum wage, then tries to walk it back with "other factors may have come into play"..

    Then to top it off, you REPEAT the claim.

    Give us a break bro. Read this crap before you post it.

    Lets take a look at what the department of labor has to say on the issue..
