Query, though: this cartoon assumes that legal immigrants would not take the kind of jobs referenced (entry-level agricultural work, as it were). Given the history of what kind of work immigrants did in the 19th and 20th centuries, is that a valid assumption?

In many ways, the issue boils down to legal immigration versus illegal immigration. One hears far fewer complaints about the former than the latter.

No one should pick tomatos for three dollars

Here's the problem that people fail to understand:

Yes, illegal immigrants do the jobs that no one else wants to do. But what about those immigrants children, and their children's children.

They're going to want them to do something better then that, so eventually it will trickle down and effect everyone with a good job as well.

here's what people fail to understand: if teachers don't pass the kids in school at all levels through the no-kid-left-behind-to-burden-us-rule, they get FIRED, so the job of "teachers" is NOT to teach, but to PASS KIDS; the kids and teachers are rotated in and out of the revolving door, sometimes as many teachers as 5/week being fired; all around the nation

Exclusive Special Report: OUR HIDDEN COMMUNITIES
After four illegal immigrants were slain in Sharonville last month, an Enquirer team went to their small hometown in Mexico to find out who they were and what drew them here. Their story is inspiring renewed discussion about immigration in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.

the same liberals that support increasing minimum wage laws also support allowing illegal aliens to work for 3 dollars an hour because "they do the jobs you won't do", but apparently they aren't worthy of being paid minimum wage?

hypocrisy much?

Do you need shears to pick tomatoes? I think it's a twisting wrist action, and they don't go in sacks, they'd get bruised by the weitght.

If people made more money picking tomatoes your Whopper will cost more.

If you allow people to make as little money as possible picking tomatoes your Whopper is cheap and you are therefore tacitly permissive of a massive, permanent underclass working at inhuman subwages.

Raise the wages, pay more for Whoppers.

There I just fixed another problem.

Mr. Borgman.... This editorial cartoon borders on criminal negligence. If you had any basis in reality you would know that illegal immigration has cost tens of thousands of previously well paid construction workers their jobs in recent years. Minimizing this issue only serves to ensure the continued abuse of these immigrants and to reward those in the construction industry who would ignore the laws of our nation in the name of profit while punishing law abiding citizens who choose to compete fairly and abstain from employing illegal labor. Justice is the basis for a humane and civilized society, your light-hearted attack on those who seek obedience to the laws of this nation is an endorsement of continued corruption, a slap in the face of honest business owners and a poison arrow between the shoulder blades of justice.
