What is the real reason not to allow a day worker program for undocumented worker?

Maybe the question should be why isn't the United States letting these people in? Is it because of minimum wage, worker comp laws that these worker would be allowed to be paid? Is it because the competition for local or family farmers is a threat to corporate farms? Is it because the corporate contract to build a huge fence along the southern boarder? Is it about all the para-military spending dollars? Is it about all the local people arming themselves? What are the real reasons for not allowing a day worker program?

When an American Citizen goes to work, are these rights given up?

1) Freedom of Speech – non-allowable conversations anything non-work related (examples of prohibits conversation about family, personal life, religion and politics).

Detriot Government denying thousands of families each week access to Water.

Right now, in Detroit, thousands of families don’t have water to drink, wash their hands, or flush their toilets. Why?

The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department is shutting off water at thousands of Detroit residences each week, even if their account debt was incurred by previous owners. That means families don't have water to drink, wash their hands or flush their toilets in their own homes.

Net Neutrality???

Freedom of speech and communication is truly important to America. The free flowing of ideas and creativity is important to the American way of life.
