No, they shouldn't expect jobs. If someone can't compete with these people you rip on for having no education and inability to speak English then why in the world should they expect work? If they are more qualified, they should have no problem. If they are even more over qualified, the types of jobs they want like management, sales, etc. are going to be created by growth from having cheaper labor in the first place. Do you think these educated unemployed people would rather go work in the fields and construction jobs or see those needs filled by people who want to do the work and in the process create jobs they are seeking?

You think they're skipping out on sales tax and property tax, too? How are they pulling that off?

When we are allowing hundreds, no not hundreds, thousands, no not thousands, millions, oh yeah, millions of people to come here illegally and work under the table while forcing the taxpayer to subsidize their families because they are poor, then you had better hope that SOME very high paying jobs result because our tax base is diminishing as our poverty level rises.

I think Nancy Pelosi agrees with you on this. But then, I think she also predicted that paying more unemployment would also work. The tax base isn't going to sustain the poverty.

You have to own property to pay property taxes. And sales tax is a joke compared to what the related costs of illegals is.

If we donít end this invasion, every state will soon be bankrupt, and we will all be eating out of dumpsters. So, I guess it really wonít matter.

While Mexicoís economy is booming, and their middle class is growing by leaps and bounds, our middle class is dying. I suppose if we could send 10% of our underclass to another country, and have them send billions of dollars monthly back to the U.S., we would also prosper.

No illegal alien should be employed in this country, period. Illegal immigration will lead to the demise of the U.S., and our enemies are all sitting back laughing, as they watch us implode.

Where are they living then? If they live in a house they pay the property tax, if they live in an apartment they are paying the property tax indirectly though their rent. If they are homeless is about the only way to avoid it.

Surely you jest. Even tourists pay sales tax. You can’t seriously believe that sales/property taxes put a dent in the amounts illegals receive from taxpayers. They are draining us dry.

If they are living 20 to a 2-bedroom apartment, or single-family home, which is not uncommon, are they paying their share? I think not.

I didn't know property taxes when off of how many occupants where in a house. What do you think is an adequate allotment of square footage per person? Please provide an excel spreadsheet and turn it into the Ministry of Housing so the Commedant can see for his approval. The glorious Worker's States of America will scientifically calculate the correct allotment of square footage allowed for an individual. We will hunt the vermin college students who room with others and those evil bunk bedders who want to conserve room! Heathens! Enemies of the State! Down with Bunk Beds, they cheat everyone!

No they are not paying property taxes, they are paying rent.

A landlord would have to pay those taxes whether the dwelling was occupied or not.
