Legally? I believe they are but I'm not really sure. Why does my answer have any impact on whether Americans are entitled to a job or not?

Sounds like you don't like it much. Maybe you should find some other restaurant?

The fact is that in order to become a citizen one must know how to read, write and speak English, with a few exceptions. So, if they are living here and NOT able to speak English it can be safely assumed that they are illegal immigrants or the children of illegal immigrants, who refuse to learn our language and obviously have no intent to become legal, since knowing English is required to do so.
I'm not sure what difference any of this makes, even if it's true (which I'm not sure is the case).

OK, so make it easier for them to be here legally. Then you would have a lot fewer illegals to complain about.

So what are we having to "endure"?...

I don't even know how to answer the topic to stay on the point (there doesn't seem to be one)...

How much more do we have to endure meandering topics like this?...

No need to make it easy to be legal. If the USA needs people; well make that call. Otherwise; stand in line in YOUR country or if here illegally, risk getting in lots of trouble.

But what you actualy mean is the government makes the call. The only way for "we" to make the call that makes any real sense is to let market forces operate. If people don't want their labor, they will not purchase it.

Who is we? I mean you're basically saying the government should determine the staffing needs of private businesses? Sounds a lot like soviet-style central planning to me. Go USA!
