After they become "legal" what is going to stop them from dropping the hoe and the butcher knife and going into town and getting a easier and better paying job. With such high unemployed Americans and the ag crying for workers means the government is paying people too much in benefits so they don't have to work. The illegal immigrants that are made legal will pretty much find it an easy task to take away town jobs from the incompetent and lazy that will then rely on the government for handouts to survive without contributing anything. When the immigrants move into town we will need a whole new wave to take their place.

Viscious circle. The declining workforce is do to people think they should start at the top, if they choose to work at all. The Indian type issue, Jay, was world wide in all nations 500 years ago. Think about it, after the Spanish pony, the female Native American had some value. Think what you like , 500 years ago a Female American 35 years of age was a great grandmother and an old-old woman. The buffalo skins were cured by them chewing on them to soften with the saliva. That is the way it was.
