Sanders, participating in a forum for presidential candidates hosted by the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, said there’s a reason why Wall Street and all of corporate America likes immigration reform.
“What I think they are interested in is seeing a process by which we can bring low-wage labor of all levels into this country to depress wages in America and I strongly disagree with that,” said Sanders who is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination.
With high unemployment rates for high school-age kids in America — 36% for Hispanics — “I frankly do not believe we should be bringing in significant numbers of unskilled workers to compete with those kids. I want to see these kids get jobs,” Sanders said.

Immigration has been horrible for the legal side as well. My mothers side still has family doing all the paperwork and paying all the fees to come over to the US the legal way. It's only gotten worse over the years, for the people trying to do it the right way and seems like just getting easier for the ones doing it the illegal way. The fees go up, the paper work get longer and the waiting time goes on and on.
