[QUOTE="Marauder06, post: 453517, member: 19"] The fact that there are jobs "99% of America won't do" while there are so many on welfare is part of the problem. If you don't have a job, there shouldn't be many (any?) legit jobs that you "won't do." But we've made welfare too comfortable; you can get most of the trappings of the lower middle class through government handouts, so where's the incentive to do better? Additionally, a cheap labor force depresses wages and discourages innovation. Why make tech improvements if you're guaranteed a stream of cheap and expendable labor? The "jobs Americans won't do" argument is only useful if immigrants would do those jobs for a while and then go home. They don't. They stay here, and I don't blame them. But any children they have here are citizens, and being Americans, they WON'T do "the jobs Americans won't do." So now you have to bring in even more immigrants to do more jobs for an ever-expanding US population. Those children aren't grateful to be in the US, they look around and say "why don't *I* have that?" just like anyone else would. Illegal immigrants are breaking the law by illegally immigrating to the US. That alone is a good enough reason to deport them. And it is "that damn hard" to come up with something that works, which is one of the reasons there hasn't been a solid solution implemented. Concern over immigration is not "bullshit." Many rational, thoughtful people who are not racist, ignorant, fearful, or "bitchin" are justifiably concerned. Anywhere uncontrolled mass immigration has occurred in the world, it was a disaster for the people who were already there. The Roman Empire... Australia... the early days of the US... and now. If we're smart we'll get a handle on this now. There are already 11 million people living illegally in the US. That's a huge problem, for any number of reasons. [/QUOTE]
