Last week during an interview with GOP presidential candidate, Rick Santorum, Chris Mathews rebuffs the rhetoric that illegal aliens fill jobs American's don't want to do. He references a man cutting grass on a tractor at a golf course saying, "give that guy $30 an hour, there would be a lot more people out there." He continues, "You pay people enough money, they'll take those jobs."
