Wonder why Repubs want illegal workers in the US? -- Follow the money!

In an article published on the Information Clearinghouse, Thom Hartmann explains how this supposedly warm, fuzzy issue is really about money, and lots of it! The more illegal workers in the country willing to work for almost nothing, the easier it is to push wages down in general.

And Gosh it seems to be happening... Real income is going down and unions are being eaten away by non-union businesses (uh Wal-Mart for example) . The result is that the richer get richer off the backs of the poor and the middle class falls backwards.

For more information, definitely check out Hartmann's article.
