They are the same thing.
Allowing millions of uneducated illegal aliens, basically whoever wants to come, across the border and now giving away citizenship, will only lead to
disaster. It will encourage more to come.
And amounts to "outsourcing" in every sense of the word.
Cheap exploitable labor.
Nobody is against immigration. The country was founded upon it.
But there is only so many people that can be absorbed at a time.
When you have a massive relocation, Reconquista, as some have called it,
it fractures the culture. Like somebody said, they want an extra-territorial pan-national mixing zone of countries. Just today, my 60 something year
old friend told me how many people in the community of Mexican-Americans are just as displeased as I am. These people are not coming over for any
loyalty to the United States. They don't want to join our society. They are impoverished and just want a job.
The Mexican Govt is complicit.
What a corrupt system.
If they didn't have the US as a relief valve for their unemployment problem,
there would be a revolucion within 20 years.
It needs to happen. We have to stop enabling foreign despotic govt's to exploit their own people. The only people benefiting, from illegal
immigration are at the top. The govt has to step in and provide social and medical services that the immigrants can't afford themselves due to the
low wages and lack of benefits. Meanwhile, the average person in this country's annual salary is reduced $1700 because of a surplus of cheap illegal
labor and they pay billions in extra taxes for social services.
This is over 200 billion a year that is not spent by consumers.
Which in turn effects, the money multiplier and the entire demand side of the equation. Our economy is dependant on consumer spending.
I'm sick of politicians saying they take jobs Americans won't do.
No. They take jobs that Americans won't do for below fair market wage.
No American is going to scrub toilets for 5 bucks an hour.
But many would for 10. Janitors use to make a living wage and did ok for meanial labor. Walmart and other businesses are driving this. In
construction, everyone is breaking the law, so you have to hire illegal aliens for cheaper than Americans are willing to work to compete.
The wave of illegal Hispanic immigrants to the US in the last few decades is without precedent. There isn't a country on this Earth that would allow
it besides the US.
We had the population under control as recently as the 1980s. 2 kids per family is the ideal. Immigrants average 7 ! The country is on track to hit 1
BILLION people by 2100. And who knows how many on the planet - Geography is destiny. The quality of life will go down compared to a sustainable
The Catholic Church is one of the root causes of Latin American poverty.
Outlawing birth control amongst poor ignorant people is dooming them to a life of servitude to just stay alive. Tithe tithe tithe ! Keep those pews
The only way to fix this problem is come down HARD on businesses that hire illegal aliens. $10,000 fine per head and prison time for repeat offenses
along with vigorous enforcment by the authorities would take care of this really fast. The illegals would willingly go back because their motivation
to come, a job, is not available.
Meanwhile do everything possible to streamline the legal wait to get in.
We allow more legal immigrants than any other country in the world. We have the 3rd largest population. America is a generous country but this will
break her back.
