But it is not even just illegal immigrants. Many are are here legally on work visas. For example, Pittsburgh was booming when it was a steel town. The steel mills closed and the city went into a major recession it never got out of. It is the only city where the population is declining. So to try to get out of a recession, it has slowly tried to base its industry on technology and medical. But instead of training and keeping the citizens, it has started importing Eastern Indians. (no offense to the E.Indian folks here, just an example) because they have some decent technological schools over there.
I think most Americans would be happy if the government would just STOP ASSISTING the corporations in their efforts to get rid of American workers.
Stop the H1B Visas
Revoke NAFTA Penalize corporations that outsource American jobs to other countries
Stop giving American jobs to illegal immigrants

It is only those that want it to appear that all these people, down on their luck, are there because we choose to be. They want to suggest that we are "lazy," "unmotivated," and other epithets, so as to justify doing nothing. By marginalizing us, they can garner support for leaving us with nowhere to turn to.
It is a purposefully concocted BS to sway the understandings and opinions of the "average Joe." God forbid we try and HELP someone!
