Views on Radical Immigration Laws
So yes, illegal immigrants cause our government to spend more money. However, undocumented workers not only work for lower wages than citizens, they also are willing to do the jobs that Americans refuse. If employers are unable to employ undocumented workers for things like agriculture, meatpacking, and construction, they will have to raise wages in order to attract legal workers. That means higher consumer prices to make up for the added cost of production. Higher home prices, higher prices at the grocery store for meat and produce, and ultimately higher consumer costs for nearly everything American-made. These new radical immigration laws also mean that often American-born, innocent children of illegal immigrants will not receive an education as a result of their parents' fear of being prosecuted if they enroll their children in public schools. Does ignorant America fail to take these things into account when blindly rallying behind the ignorant radical assholes that run this country? So they're taking jobs. Would YOU work 14 hours a day doing manual labor in the hot sun seven days a week for minimum wage? Would YOU work in a dangerous environment hacking up dead animals for barely enough to feed yourself? Get real, people. Oh, and illegal immigrants stealing social security? Come on. Social security is already not enough to live on, and it will be no more by the time our generation retires. You whine about people that depend on the government yet wants to whine about you not getting social security. Explain to me how that isn't hypocrisy. If you aren't planning and/or saving for your own retirement you may as well be digging your own grave.
