Why the U.S. rolls out the red carpet for Mexican illegal immigrants has been a mystery for years.

There are plenty of citizens who want and need work. They are mad about all of the jobs being taken by millions of illegals. There may have been a time, 50 yrs ago, when illegals were handy for filling certain positions. That theory is so out dated now. At this point, Americans want those jobs, but they aren't available.
Also, it is not my point to say illegals shouldn't be here, I only want to point out what I believe the Government has in store.
they let you go, because most cops don't want to put in all of the extra paperwork and time that goes into it.

To you who does have a good point.
I say are wrong
We don't need them to do the jobs teenagers used to do.
We are using them to allow the fattening of America I mean literally if the children and twenty somethings are allowed to stay at home and play on their devices and have everything given them, they will take advantage of that.
So Illegals doing the jobs that teenagers used to do, is actually stealing our future, it is robbing our youth of work ethic and the means to build character.
But as for the tagging, its OK..tag the illegals with the promise of legalization, aaaand lets go ahead and give away the next World of Warcraft or Grand Theft Auto with your chipping lazy youth of today, because like we saw in the Police Barracksshooting, the youth of today may be the terrorists of tomorrow

I always believed that the theory that illegals were taking jobs that americans would do was true, I no longer believe that and here`s why.
For the past 4 weeks I have been trying to hire someone to do odd jobs around my home,they aren`t dangerous jobs, and NO one will do them. I`ve gone through all the "handyman" ads in this area and NO one wants to do the work.
I`m now convinced that there are jobs that americans just won`t do for any amount of money,since americans won`t do them then I have no problem with letting illegals come into the country and do those jobs.

Many of the illegals I knew would have a husband working under the table and the wife working a regular job with a combined income that was above poverty level. The women lied and said they were a one income household and they ended up with food stamps, medical, cheap housing. All through deceit. They sent a lot of money back home to their own Country. They saved a lot and many plan on returning back to their own Country as our money is worth so much more there.

it's my understanding that the gov't has passed a few laws to make sure it get's the taxes it feels is due.. even if the american hasn't been in the states for years and is working halfway around the world paying taxes to another country. And because the gov't has become so aggressive in that venture there is a massive waiting list of those that want to just give up their citizenship and avoid those taxes. I've also heard that those who get green cards are also being trapped in like manner.
This is just a suggestion here but could the gov't be allowing the wave of immigrants in an attempt to entrap them in this way? Then well when the economy falls through the floor and all these immigrants go back home for the jobs well our gov't will still have money coming into their hands?
