    Beats hiring illegals for even cheaper, then their earnings are shipped out of the country.

    parts of the north were turned into shitholery by democrat regimes that drove business out. The south welcomed those companies and they are doing great.

    Couldn't hire them cheap if they weren't "illegal".

    Working class stiffs get hoodwinked every time -- and then, they vote for the very folks who hoodwinked them.

    Damn right, that's who we primarily import. Poorest and least educated. Perfect for democrat regimes.

    Actually, Democrats tend to do better with the more highly educated voters.

    It is what it is.

    Poor uneducated are who you import. You want the numbers to lead around at election time.

I can admit that I was wrong. I thought that Volvo was a Swedish company. Because I posted that you, you call me a liar? Your post is childish and an example of what is wrong with the left in today's world.
    Volvo was a Swedish company. Like many it has been taken over , bought out, merged.
