Are illegal aliens taking jobs from citizens here in America?
I have heard, and been asked, this question several times, seemingly a lot this past 20 years. If it wasn't aliens, illegal or not, America wouldn't be America.....
America itself is a country of aliens. If aliens had not invaded and grabbed America, the aborigines would be living happily there! If you are complaining about aliens of the past 20 years, what about those who had been coming over the past 250 years?
I'm not complaining at all. It's a question that has been asked for a while now, just wanted to know what others thought. My heritage is Mexican/Native American, I live in a farming/rural city in Ca., and I still ask what do you all think about it?
Sorry! Please take that "you" (about complaining) as a generic "you" (instead of saying 'people') and not as targeted towards you!
Ohhh! Grins... Thank you for the clarification!
Nope, the government is taking your jobs. Open your eyes, and don't blame the foreigners. And yes, unless you're native American, you're an 'alien' yourself.
We are all a melting pot of several different nationalities. Saying that, that was hundreds of years ago. This is the here and now. Sure, A farmer is going to hire aliens to pick their fruit, vegetables, etc. because they work for mere pennies. This in my view is exploitation of someone only trying to survive. So, instead of begrudging an alien for being hired for back breaking work; blame the farmer where the blame is due.

Some people say President Obama told illegal aliens they can vote. It is reported that 3,000,000 did just that in California. What about Arizona? What about Florida? How can that happen? The Governor of North Carolina is suspicious about the vote that took him out of...

My opinion is no, we should not.The problems of failed or "third world" countries have resulted in millions of people fleeing those countries to steal the better life the people of other non third world countries have. The United States is one of those countries. We have allowed these...

Should illegal aliens be given path to citizenship?Some of them cross the border and others overstayed their visa. What is your opinion about this?

If all the I illegal Aliens said tomorrow they are voting Republican, would the Dems desire Voter ID cards, would they want the voter rolls updated, would they have backed Obama's amnesty for the young illegals?
