One minute I hear the economy is bad and there is no jobs. The next I hear we need these people to do the work. Which is it?

If we have high unemployment then we sure don't need illegals here taking jobs. As for the argument that we will be hurt if the illegals leave, I don't see how more citizens employed, less crime, less people on public assistance can hurt a state or country's economy. Not to mention insurance rates would go down.
