  • ... And don't ignore the reality of the so-called pro-immigrant activists who lobby for the US to bend over backward for those who have not learned to speak English. These social do-gooders SAY they only want poor people not to be disadvantaged by their lack of understanding the language here. And so they cry "discrimination" if a school district wants to have newly-arrived children attend a special class to learn English. IDIOTS!! My husband is a math teacher for 7th grade, and if the students can't understand what's going on, they are forced to tune out and create their own micro-society within the school. My husband can't take the time to teach them English, but if they could be offered just a single semester of an English class, they could do well in school and not become gang members & drop-outs a few years down the road.

    By hindering immigrants from learning English, these "do-gooders" have installed permanent slaves

  • construction workers

    Now that you've mentioned it. They are underpaid, have no benefits. So who benefits from illegals? Not themselves for sure!

  • I wonder if Nancy Pelosi benefits at her non-union employed  wineries? IMO~ Taxpayers do NOT benefit. Unemployed do NOT benefit. Insured Auto drivers do NOT benefit.

  • The government of Mexico. Hands down.

    Think about it. Even someone as completely un-informed as myself can see how it siphons off undesireables from their regions, and also gives an avenue for people of good character to go try to support their families without pressuring their own government to get its act together.

    Mexicans who work here (legal and illegal) who have extended family back in Mexico send enormous amounts of US dollars over the border. And there is an entire network of money-changing in Mexico that skims off some of the money before the family can use it.

    So no wonder Mexico's gov't has been caught red-handed distributing pamphlets (full of illustrations for those who don't read well) detailing how to get into the the US and how to live there.

    Keep this in mind EVERY time you hear any news of what Mexico's gov't is doing or demanding.

  • Yeah, Construction companies. (Housing)Fast Food restaurants. Janitorial staffs. Road construction.ALl kinds of labor. And ther families that are receiving part of their pay.
    So---if they don't get hired for the jobs, then all these companies will be paying much higher salaries to American laborers.Which results in higher priced homes for us....the illegal imigrants who work at low pay are keeping the homes cheaper in certain areas ,such as Texas. Higher taxes for our road construction. Higher prices at McDonalds, for example.. It all figures,doesn't it?

    That is who benifits from someone trying to build a life .

  • Who benefits the most? The asshole Americans who break the law by hiring them. The illegals themselves get abused and shortchanged in a lot of ways and live in fear of getting deported. The corporations that hire them for  picking crops, hotel housekeepers, meatpackers, fast food workers and construction workers, the people who hire them as nannies and housekeepers and gardeners and maids. Any American who hires an illegal alien should have his business or home (wherever the work was done) seized and sold at auction, pay a heavy fine, and do some mandatory jail time like 6 months per illegal, for this.
