  • There are plenty of white illegal immigrants as well, from Canada, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.

  • The trouble is assuming all illegal immigrants are from Mexico. I agree singling out a specific group is racist.

  • Naralie, I think you're right about them not wanting to work in the fields. I heard an interview with a gentleman that did a documentary about the jobs that illegal immigrants typically do in the US. He went and did different jobs for a month to see what it was like. One of them was picking lettuce. When he was hired the people in the office didn't even want to send him into the field they wanted to make him a loader or a driver. He insisted on the fields and they were reluctant not because he was white and they wanted specifically to have Hispanics in the field, but because in their experience they lost money on people like him (white) because they'd go through the trouble of training them only to have them leave shortly after because they just didn't want to do the work. The Hispanic workers were more reliable in the fields.

  • Illegal isn't a race. It's a status. Not all illegal immigrants are from Mexico, but most of them are. The complaint isn't about the race. It's about the broken laws and disregard for our own country.

  • Actually most of them are South American and Central American. They cross the border in Mexico, but they're not all Mexican.

    And it's only illegal because America ammended it's immigration policy from:

    "Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

  • When my dh worked in construction, there were many times that he knew of illegal workers who would get a job over a legal worker. Not because the illegal worker was a better worker, but because the illegal worker would work for much less(because they didn't have to pay taxes on the wages they earned). So, yes, illegal workers do, at times, take jobs from US citizens. I think that it is great for people to immigrate here. The US is a great place to live, but they need to do it legally.
