Why Mexicans Should Rule This Country

Buried in a Washington Post story this morning  (see "Gingrich’s immigration crucible") about Newt Gingrich's position on that hot-button issue is this discouraging and damning bit of truth:
In fact, amnesty isn’t the magnet; jobs are. Some 8 million undocumented workers — about 5 percent of the U.S. labor force — are here largely because American workers do not want low-wage, dirty and backbreaking jobs, particularly in heavily agricultural states such as California and Texas.
I would have thought, with unemployment in this country being as high as 20% of the available workforce, and with no improvement in sight, that we would have gotten beyond the point where those without work would be willing to turn down a paycheck, no matter how backbreaking the job.

Guess not.

Millions of Americans still would rather sit on their asses and do nothing, waiting for something to be handed to them that is never going to be than make themselves productive.

I wonder, can we deport these losers to Guadalajara and swap them for workers who are prepared to advance the American Dream?
