The Party Of Compassion?

I thought the Democrats were supposed to be the party of compassion, the party that cared about poverty and the plight of the poor.

If that's the case, then why is it that not one person in this long list of comments on a Democratic Underground (home of the uber-leftists) posting on immigration even mentions the tremendous incentives immigrants have to come here and work illegally.

The simple fact is that the mainstream media, the left, and the right don't want to talk about the tremendous benefits immigrants reap by coming to America illegally. Think about it. Millions of Mexicans chose to come to the United States illegally, and work under the radar without the benefit of minimum wage laws, or any laws protecting workers. Millions choose to do this rather than work legally in Mexico. Says a lot for the free market and the pull of freedom, doesn't it?

I get my lawn mowed cheaply, and some Mexican a better living then he ever did in Mexico. The only losers are the (phantom) jobs being lost.
