And see that is the real american problem. You want a ceo salary for wiping the streets. None of you have ever realy worked a day for a real salary. Those immigrants who work for less do it cause they live within their means. They know what it is to suffer and they are glad for what they get. And if you have a problem that the owner "rip you off" with a low slary. Then i suggest you shut your trap and become a business owner. After all the owner took the risk that is why get the lots of money.

Sounds like a day for a job application to me.
Do they not realize theres tens of millions of people here who would work those jobs of they paid a wage that didn't require pseudo slavery?
In fact, according to the Pew Research Center, more Mexicans now leave the U.S. than head north, and border apprehensions are down a whopping 75 percent since 2000. Simply put, fewer people are coming, and our border authorities catch and remove most who try.
This is not to say there isn’t a crisis, however. There is one, but it’s different from the one Trump thinks exists. It doesn’t involve Mexican migrants, and a wall won’t solve it. The actual crisis involves thousands of migrants from Central America’s “Northern Triangle” — El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras — who are fleeing brutal gang violence, extreme poverty or malnutrition. Roughly half of these migrants are women and young children escaping desperate circumstances, facing the real possibility of death or rape if they stay. Others are fleeing extreme poverty in remote regions where education ends at the sixth grade and families are limited to one meal a day.

No you are no and stop playing around, actually that post make me laugh out loud. because that is not you.
I have to admit I came into the thread heavy and sharp tongued, but darn I hit a lot of" sensitive feelings around."
Actually people that knows me face to face love that part of me, because I also make them laugh.
On topic - I'm not much of a nationalist Louise.
People can argue about what kind of citizen that makes me. And they do. It's not that I don't believe in borders or legality, but I'm more concerned with human rights abuses than I am with people's lawns

Yes, They Do Pay Taxes (from the link that Spira provided, from The Atlantic:
“We estimate that earnings by unauthorized immigrants result in a net positive effect on Social Security financial status generally, and that this effect contributed roughly $12 billion to the cash flow of the program for 2010,” Gross concluded in a 2013 review of the impact of undocumented immigrants on Social Security.
Yeah. Those illegal immigrants paid TWELVE BILLION DOLLARS in taxes that went toward Social Security that they themselves will likely never see.
So, please stop with the disinformation about them. Unless you have worked with them and gotten to know them, you don't know what you are talking about.

Only you know best, right?
How foolish of us to disagree.
