That is why I support free immigration. Someone to do yard work, someone to fix a car, someone to pour drinks, someone to bag my groceries.

My #1 concern is me. I earn enough to live in a highly desirable suburb, so I suffer zero consequences - and get all the benefits. Huzzah for me.
Uh; I wouldn't be talking about that sort of stuff. 1 day you WILL be arrested and tossed in jail or if NOT a US citizen, deported.

No, it isn't a victimless crime.

The victim is the American who lost out on a job because you hired Jose. Oh, and don't think you're not subsidizing those poverty wages that you're paying Jose via higher taxes. Even in a low-tax state like Texas, illegals cost this state more than they contribute to it. By the billion.

But don't you see...that is the attitude in America today.
They don't care. There is no "society"..it's all about them personally.

According to the late Maggie Thatcher, there is no such thing as society.
