I disagree with you on some points, some points you made were quite valid and you are right about them.
I am talking about change here. I want people that want to do better for their families to come to this country. I think it should be easy for them to
do so. Everyone should deserve a chance to prove themselves in America. That is what this country is all about. What I do not approve of is people
that cross the border illegally
taking jobs (yes I will admit jobs that most natural born Americans would hate) away from those that
would do them because they are available. Believe me, I have seen the lines at day labor
places (work today, pay
today) just to survive. Yes the corporations that have these jobs that give them to undocumented workers hate the thought of paying minimum wage for
legal workers. But that in itself is wrong too, it's illegal and its exploiting a person and subjecting them to basically slavery. We are above that
in this country. We should strive to be above that kind of treatment of a person.
These are human beings that deserve a chance to make it in this country. I said a chance. Make it easy for them to come here legally If they chose to
invade our country illegally then I say they need to be gotten rid of. Not all of these people are just here to work for their families some are here
to sell illegal narcotics, commit crime, and in general put a black stain on otherwise good hard working people. Now I remind you I said SOME, most
are here for good reasons and want to do better in their lives. These are the people that need to be welcomed into this country. For the ones that
come in and join gangs sell crack rob kill and commit hit and run offenses they should be ejected from the country post haste.
As for companies that higher illegal immigrants and treat them like slaves, pay them below minimum wage and otherwise mistreat them. I say these
companies need to be held accountable for their actions. These are companies that do not in my opinion deserve to be in existence. They are exploiting
people that are in general just trying to better themselves at a profit. They should pay ultimately for this exploitation.
