Why do Americans have a problem with people who immigrate illegally to their country?
It is common sense. Even animals do this! If there is no food or water or shelter then the animals immigrate. Same thing with people who want a better life. People who live in the U.S.A have no idea what's it like to live in such place where the government is corrupt and half of the people are extremely rich and the other half are poor. Here in the USA you can survivive on minimum wage and in mexico minimum wage is enough for just food. So why be offensive to them instead of taking them and giving them a better life.

When all the immigrants move to America they need jobs to support themselves. That takes jobs away from the people that were born here and are actually legal. There are people out there that can't find jobs because they don't have a degree or a diploma and the only jobs they can get are taken by immigrants. So they... More

Americans have a problem when capitalism bites back. It's pure capitalism to hire someone who will work harder, longer, for less pay.

Move a few into your house and get back to me about this, you do take in every stray animal that shows up at your door, don't you? That is your answer.

I don't know...maybe for the same reason YOU would have a problem with 20 extra people just moving into your home because they felt like it. You should have no problem taking them and giving them a better life...right?
