Here in Texas, working in Dallas County, the devastating effect on wages in many trades has been most damaging.

Well,i know H1B workers are legal,but they should be included.

they bring down wages just like illegal immigrants,yet Trump wants to increase H1b visas.


i do not understand how Cubans are allowed to stay and Mexicans and others have to go back,often to worse conditions than exists in Cuba.

The same with Haitians--why do they have to go back and Cubans allowed to stay when conditions are much worse in Haiti?

Uh oh!

The new NYC representative elected to take Charles Rangel's seat was an undocumented immigrant.

Trump has been campaigning against the abuse of the H1-B visa system.

Miami has very few illegal immigrants relative to its total immigration size. That mainly has to do with the preferential treatment Cubans are given.

Unlike Miami, Dallas actually has a high percentage of illegal immigrants relative to its total immigrant population.

Most of the Cubans I call friends and work mates have went out of their way to be Legal and establish a new home.

Most immigrants in general do that. Most of my friends are immigrants or children of immigrants. They maintain their culture and blend it with American culture. Cubans are hardly unique here.


And yes Cubans have gotten preferential treatment for immigration.
