What do you feel that the future will be POSITIVE or NEGATIVE for the middle class in the
United States? Or do you contend that the middle class will vanish forever, with a few advancing to the upper class while the majority will become....THE NEW LOWER CLASS? Why? Why not?

Half of illegal aliens have no high school degree versus 10% of natives. Their American born children graduate at higher rates but not a lot better. So you get three generations before they start to assimilate and hit middle class, in many cases. That means that enabling illegal immigration has contributed to the high percentage in poverty - compounded by immigrants depressing wages for the bottom 25% of native born Americans.
