Are you providing healthcare benefits to them so that their social costs aren't passed on to the rest of us or don't you care about that either?
Frankly, those are not my concerns.

I figure if you wasted your opportunities and can be replaced job wise by a new arrival, it's your fault and you should step your game up.

I worked hard, got my 2 degrees and will pursue a PhD this Fall. Why should I not reap the benefits of my effort and utilize cheap labor and so on?

First off I am retired so illegal immigrants are no threat to any job opportunties for me. However, I do feel for our American youth and blue-collared workforce who have had their job opportunties impacted by them. Should they step aside and give their jobs to illegal immigrants? Many Americans don't want to sit at a desk all day they enjoy manual labor and there is nothing wrong with that. Many of those jobs used to pay a decent wage such as construction for example.

If you have no conscience about hiring illegal immigrants rather than Americans then I don't even know what to say to you. Hiring illegal immigrants is against the law. Don't laws mean anything to you? Is it all about fattening your wallet and to heck with laws and Americans? Truly unbelievable.

I want to maximize the power of my dollar. I would never commit major crimes, but if some guy can do a job at half the 'official' price, I will utilize that opportunity.

Then you are breaking the law but I guess just as long as you aren't committing murder or rape then it's A-ok to pick and choose what laws you will and will not follow? You and those like you are a part of the problem and with that I have no further use to read your posts or to reply to them anymore.

I'm enjoying to read your posts, no matter if I agree or I disagree, so I love to see you share your opinion on immigration.

I already understand about your frustration with illegal immigrants.
