One in eleven. That is getting awfully close to 10%. Imagine that. 10% of a country's population, the most populous country in Latin America, has fled that country for another. That is not immigration, it is an evacuation.
"We have a dilemma. We love the benefits of low-cost labor -- the nannies, the cooks. On the other hand, we don't want all the pressure. We complain when they go to the emergency room," said David Hayes-Bautista, director of the center for the Study of Latino Health and Culture at the University of California, Los Angeles. "Something has got to give."That's right. It is a hypocritical position in which we find ourselves. We want them to pick tomatoes, watch the kids, cut the grass and flip the burgers but we don't want all the baggage that comes with this nearly endless supply of cheap labor. Sorry, you can't have it both ways, folks.
