Construction workers should feel ok with illegals taking their jobs? How many construction workers loose money every year, loose work, loose a way of life in favor of low balling illegals who dont have to pay the same in taxes, dont have valid insurance. Have 10 workers living in a 1 bedroom apartment and so dont even have the same cost of living. So how can the honest legal construction workers compete against that? Oh yeah I forgot Illegals only do work americans wont do themselves.

not eliminate the border, but definitely streamline the legal immigration process. the redistribution of wealth i do support, to both the poor and middle classes, regardless of race or nationality. the middle class of america is dissolving, and the lower class is highly underrepresented.

Millions and millions of people from around the world want to come to USA. Where does it stop? Culture shock my friend.
We already have some redistribution of wealth in our social services (welfare) tax the rich feed the poor. Treading on thin ice with redistribution of wealth, anymore and it might be called communism.

communism isnt the ultimate evil. its perfect in theory, horrible in practice. but we can have a hybrid of capitalism and socialism. its not impossible, and it works well for european nations.
