I want to start off that I do no care for Obama or his policies and the way he has been acting. But I do have to agree with him on legalizing immigrants.
Can someone please tell me what ARE the cons of millions of people coming to the USA. All I keep seeing is people afraid of them living off of state aid and taking jobs. But with a green card you are not aloud to apply for state aid ONLY us citizens can. You can only become a full out citizen once you have your green card/permanent residency card for 5 years and they don't just give it to you. You have to pass a test and pay money. Heck they cant even sign up for obummercare until they are citizens.
As for them taking our jobs? Really? Ever heard of a resume? They will not be taking the jobs of doctors or business professionals and they may even have a hard time even getting work in retail. They will be doing the jobs that no one wants. And if they do begin to start to take the entry level jobs. Then maybe the US born citizens who have access to education and aid resources should get off their lazy butt and aim for a better job.
So please if anyone can point me to the real downside Id really like to know.
On a plus side the influx of millions of people determined to work, start a new life, and make a living for themselves would greatly increase our economy.
