US World University team opens with a rout

 maybe you know nothing because people of meixcan descent travel to their country to play no matter where they live.... 

  No.......They don't.  If they did they wouldn't have a job.  There's another hard working Mexican standing behind them who wants it.  They work hard thinking they'll be able to go home in five or so years and have it made.  They wont.  There's so many here sending money back to Mexico on that 5 year plan that by the time 5 years gets here, the influx of money to Mexico has made life more expensive there and the plan doesn't work, for them at least.  It works just fine for Wall Street.  I don't know about your corporately owned McDonald's but mine is staffed almost exclusively by Mexicans.  Know why?  Because they work cheap and they've been exempted by the Obama administration from Obamacare.  Why should McCopCo pay for their health care when Social Services is already doing it.  That's an other reason Wall Street wants them here.  How do you justify Mexican nationals using EBT cards in front of you in the super market?  Working Americans have to pay for that.   
....and maybe that job thing wouldnt be a problem if people didnt think they were too good for lower level jobs ........Wrong again Einstein.  I don't know about where you're from, (Meixco maybe?), but they're not working lower level jobs here.  American construction workers are at home drawing unemployment while Mexicans are building Bridges on Interstates and building city buildings.  They're doing all the construction work here.  They're not low paying jobs.  Well, they are if Mexicans are doing them.  That's why they're doing them.  If by lower level jobs you mean house cleaning, well I've known Americans begging for that work long before a Mexican ever passed through here except to pick an apple or tomato.  They called them migrant workers then.  If you want to know why Mexicans picked apples and tomatos, well, if farmers and orchards paid a living wage to Americans to pick them they couldn't sell them because the price would be too high.  People would grow their own tomatos and you could keep your apples........ when in reality their just lazy and so people hire whoever they can get... That's the lie the greedy SOB's who hire them and let American families wonder how to pay their bills uses, but there's a flaw to this BS.  First, do they pass along the savings?  No they don't.  They pocket the savings and that's the only reason they use them.  When a business owner tells you he hires them because Americans wont work like Mexicans, ask him if he ever worked like a Mexican.  If he says yes, you know he's a liar.  If he says no, ask him how he can ask others to do what he's not willing to do......and SEC sucks!..........You just can't win.  I'm not an SEC fan.  If I were though, that's would be one impressive argument, Pablo........Oh, by the way, I didn't say anything about people of Mexican descent.  They're not part of the population of Mexico.  That's Mexican nationals.  No other country in the world would stand for 15 million of their own unemployed while 40 million people from the bordering country are working within their borders.

Maybe Mexico could've made a better showing if over a third of the country's population wasn't in the United States, driving wages down.
