What people think about illegals taking jobs?
I know I have heard alot of speeches by people saying that illegals are taking the jobs that Americans do not want. Do these people think all Americans get CEO jobs and other high paying jobs. Some people might not have the oppertunities or ability to get a nice high paying job. So they have to get the bad jobs that a avalible like Wal-mart, landscaping, janitor, McDonalds, ect. This is not because they want these jobs but because they need these jobs because they can't get anything better. Yet, with the hundreds of thousands of ILLEGAL immigrants coming to America the people that were BORN here are having to fight with people that jumped a fence and come here because their own country does not want to help them.

The "jobs Americans won't do" line is bullcrap that needs to be retired. It's only because people from foreign countries have been allowed to come in and occupy the lower class in huge numbers that they have started to take over these jobs. And why is this illegal immigration encouraged? Because they'll work for well-... More

Illegal aliens are not wanted or needed here. We need to secure our borders and deport them. We need to enforce our laws and fine the employers who hire illegal aliens.

Illegals wanted to get jobs Americans do not want and wanted. They wanted to work hard and be promoted even to CEO. Thus, it is anybody's ballgame because each person must fight it out to climb the ladder and be successful.

It sucks, period. If they think we don't want those jobs, just go down to the unemployment line sometime and ask them. I have been a hard working American for fifty years now and am not afraid or unwilling to do any paying job. Go home illegals.

It just a flat out lie that they do jobs US citizens wont do. At the factory I work at there were 68 of them working for the temp agency. They got the same pay as everyone else. Notice were because they got deported and now those jobs are filled with legal citizens.

I think it's time we rounded up ALL the illegals and sent them back to wherever they came from. Then we should militarize the border. As far as "jobs that Americans won't do," that arguement is crap. Americans won't do those jobs for $25 a day because legal citizens don't have 20 of their buddies to go in on a 2... More
