10:07 am
a fifty foot fence i'm in favor of the fifty foot fence there's a living million illegal immigrants in the united states. those could be american jobs those could be tax paying jobs but some industries especially california agriculture businesses don't want americans working for them. which translates into workers needed a spanish language sign definitely aimed towards immigrant workers a foreign based workforce that's making sure that. make it to your table there's no need for interviews or long applications undocumented immigrants simply show up at a field and they're hired many people including former president george w. bush i mean immigrant workers do the jobs americans to do at a farm in oxnard a city just north of los angeles neighbors aren't convinced the average american could step in their shoes even for a day. to hire
10:08 am
a. white person is too hard. i haven't seen any american here working here in the fields said you'll get it all came into this country illegally through the southern california desert he makes a dollar ninety for every box of strawberries she fills in now in an effort to employ out of work americans and obviously to prove a point the united farm workers union is embodied in american citizens to take the jobs of these farm workers wouldn't be surprised if after a day or two they find themselves appreciating those who are taking the jobs we stop by the unemployment office to find out if people who are out of work would be willing to take the job of an immigrant farm worker if a farmer came up. here as a farm worker. and now. that. if i had a job that got me out there got me some exercise but no heavy lifting it was at
10:09 am
least eleven dollars an hour i would take it but i doubt that it's usually a lot of heavy lifting it doesn't pay too much there farmers and they're willing to pay slave labor of course they have it. conservative radio host tony katz is among the growing number of supporters immigration crackdown he thinks a threat to the u.s. isn't just financial it over this is about people who may be coming with diseases we've already eradicated bring them back into the united states america has paid a significant price because of illegal immigration eric spence is the founder of we support arizona dot com he thinks americans will take the job of farm worker because an american will do what it takes to feed their family according to the united farm workers so far only three people have taken up there are for to take immigrant jobs in los angeles. are t. . well conservative author joe montana and human rights activists referenda grain and have crossed swords on this issue and also his washington c.d.a.
10:10 am
discussing if the new street immigration just. the whole argument is around the issue of scarcity when you got all of these folks on employed all of a sudden you've got to look for a scapegoat for the reason why folks are employed but that's not the reason why folks ought employ the reason folks on employed is because of the way the economic system was structured wasn't regulated fell apart now the issue that you need to understand is that there's always been this country because of the capitalist system a race to try to produce more or less that has always been the case so what happens is that you ended up basically outsourcing it's not that folks took jobs we gave away gobs we gave away jobs right there on the mexican border when we passed nafta and we passed caf to all the free trade agreements it was so that people of corporations based in the united states could escape all the kinds of regulations and all the kinds of labor laws that existed in the united states it's the illegals themselves who cause trouble as well as the businesses i mean business is not
10:11 am
innocent here business is as cost and the american taxpayer billions of dollars through skirting labor laws openly say reverend robert how do you respond and i'll get i want on a car going just to semantically question one is i don't call anyone a legal because there is no human being that is illegal they may be undocumented get a etc etc but it's a theological point of view to understand theological points of views and i guess that's what i think so because i don't have a reverend if you haven't already what you're talking about in terms of their anti immigrant for is a new word for racism and what you're really talking about are keeping people in the shadows so that people can continue to be manipulated by corporate entities and you never look at the kinds of international policies that the united states has created another place that creates a false immigration to the united states in the first place the reverend say that all he wants but the it's the word illegal it doesn't count if you're breaking the law you know there is such a thing as illegal immigration the left is doing everything they can to change the fight from illegal immigrant to immigrant the law that has been passed that has
10:12 am
been passed in the soon to be implemented in arizona really opens the door to racial profiling because if you believe almost. i would attract one of the engine oh everybody always say well the police can stop anybody without a reasonable cause well there's always reasonable cause when it comes to people of color to get stuff you drive into shining a car that's reasonable cause you look like you're in the wrong neighborhood that's reasonable that's always an issue this is just a new new new form of racism i just want to ask the reverend question should there be any border law at all should anyone be allowed to come here at any time for any reason and stay as long as they want the united states i despise can i get some clarity on that from here sir well the issue is i mean yes of course you want to have some regulation to the border but it needs to be home it needs to be jazz it needs to really deal with where you're going as a country and it also needs to take into account the kind of policies that you have put in place in other countries that creates a forced economic immigration well to forget we've got plenty more on our website

10:15 am
many many times in the history of aviation it is the most common type of fatal accident in aviation history i think possibly. some polish people would have said look accident investigations take two years how are they so sure that they have got the answer after only a matter of months those who worked with russian investigation teams say laying the blame on them is not there there was in essence a joint investigation under way which i think was very wise both sides so i know that there have been an ongoing series of conversations and efforts because we do need to understand what happened to get your point so where does the doubt in the transparency of the investigation and the causes of the crash come from some believe politics could be in play their feet. are fond of believing that it was
