I'm not mad at all, i have found truth in a lot of this nonsense, but you have to admit there is a lot of BS being tossed around from people who don't
understand how hard it really is to find work in California (look at my introduction, i am a new member and admit i am a struggling laborer). People
come to this awesome state because there is more opportunity potentially. I do not judge anyone wanting to see their future and their family's future
benefit from California's fast paced labor market.
Yes. People come here illegally. Are they coming here with nukes? With UFOs? With c4's on their chest? No. But here we go again with
categorizing....it is never-ending.
There's always going to be the people that have extremely biased views that go both ways. Thats why I made sure I stated I can see why they'd want to
come here and I do feel bad for the kids who may or most likely may not have had any choice in the matter. However, unless someone can throw me a bone
on how this will benefit the majority of citizens in California or at least ensure the job market wont become further flooded and make it damned near
impossible to get a job for legal citizens (it's hard enough now, i know. I jut found work after 1 1/2 years of nothing) then I see this as nothing
more than a political ploy by the Obama Administration to ensure he gets the majority of the Hispanic vote.
As far as people illegally coming here, I have an issue because as Ive stated my family and most everyone else's came here legally, and it wasn't
easy, but they did it. They did it the right way because they didnt want to take advantage of the country that's supposed to offer them the chance of
the "American Dream", these illegal residents aren't paying taxes, collect welfare, cause overcrowding in the schools, etc. There is a reason
immigration is regulated, it's so we don't have millions of undocumented residents taking what they can without giving anything back. It needs to be
regulated to control population size to a certain extent, and it should be based at least to some degree on the states economy. That means both our
deficit and job market.
Again, that's my opinion. I'm not trying to start an argument, I'm just trying to see everyone's thoughts on the matter
EDIT: Im sorry, sarcasm isn't detectable too easily in text, I was joking along with you with the gardening thing.
I do landscaping and concrete as
side work to make ends meet. I speak very little spanish, but I can speak some. As far as the free pass, not me. I've worked for everything Ive had,
payed over $20,000 in taxes in 2010 before being layed off, not to mention all the other taxes ive paid since i started work at 15 1/2.
