You want it, you've got it!
Before I moved to Kentucky I lived in Texas. I was affected in many ways- some bad, some good- by illegal aliens. First let me explain a few things:
Most illegal aliens purchase fake ID and Social Security cards or most wouldn't be able to get jobs. Employers hire them because they believe they are
legally entitled to work in the US. Yes, they take jobs from citizens. My ex was one of 2 token white guys working for a construction company that
employed at least 100 Mexican employees who had Green Cards, Texas driver license and SS cards. When the company got raided by immigration it turned
out that only 15 of the guys were using actual real ID and SS cards and the rest were fake. The company was shut down, work at the time was scarce and
we nearly lost our house and car because of it.
Now fast forward a little bit: My ex and I were splitting up and jobs were extremely scarce at the time. After 3 months of hitting the pavement every
single day, all day I was able to get a job at a restaurant 10 miles away in the next town. Management and wait staff were all citizens but kitchen
staff and bus staff were all illegal aliens except for one and only one guy. Right after I moved to Kentucky the restaurant (and another owned by the
same company) were raided and shut down. Even though I was no longer there my nephew lost his job and one of my nieces who worked at the other
restaurant lost her job. Both had to move back home with their parents.
Now as recently as last year: Guy I grew up with, families sharing holiday meals together, catching the school bus together every day, went to church
together, etc. Still good friends and stay in touch. Last year he lost his home and then his wife because of it. Why? Can't beat the bids of illegal
Mexican crews who aren't paying taxes or insurance on painting and drywall jobs. When I still lived there they canvassed whole neighborhoods offering
work on anything and everything at rock bottom prices that no contractor doing it the legal way can beat. Painting, drywall, roofing, tree work,
landscaping, masonry, building... you name it- they will beat any price.
Let's flash back again to when I was still with the ex: He'd work out of town often (common in construction work) so when payday rolled around I'd go
to Western Union to send him money. Every time I'd have to wait in long line for at least an hour or better due to non-English speaking illegals
wiring money back to their home countries. Spending as little as possible in the USA their illegally begotten money mostly goes to another country. It
took forever because very rarely did any of them speak any English whatsoever.
Now for the perks of so many illegal aliens: You can get the best tamales you've ever eaten in your life for a little bit of nothing any day of the
week from an old Mexican guy parked on the shoulder of any 2 lane highway in Texas!
