If Trump wins, I don't expect him to deport every single illegal at once. If he can deport the worst of the worst, that will be more than any other politician has done recently.

In all fairness I think Obama is deporting the worst of the worst it's the rest of them he won't deport. If Trump only does the same it won't be any different. I am hoping that won't be the case.

The dirty jobs I did fresh out of HS are now all done by recent immigrants. Do not know if legal or otherwise. Same with some service sector jobs.

No, America needs to put American welfare recipients to work doing the jobs "Americans won't do".

There are no jobs that most Americans won't do for a fair wage. Illegal aliens aren't working because of lazy Americans on welfare. Most of the jobs they have taken were already being done by a citizen but the greedy employers replaced them with cheap, illegal labor to increase their profits.

Those who want illegals in this country (whether rank and file citizens, the media or politicians) are complicit in deliberately attempting to establish (or reinforce) a permanent group of second class citizens. Relegating these illegals to the menial, the low paying, and to a permanent class where they can never (ever) "achieve the American Dream".

Think about the humanitarian implications of that. Those who want illegals in this country are guilty of considering these people, and treating these people, as second class citizens. And they couch that truism in their OWN supposed humanitarian concerns for poor struggling immigrants just seeking a better life. What a crock of Horse You-Know-What.

Anyone who has tried applying for these jobs know illegals don't qualify, most jobs require that English is spoken and being a US citizen. These people are lying to us!


They only want them to be future Democrats, along with fundamentally changing America. Surprisingly, many Americans agreed to this and voted for President Obama.

Exactly. Thereby making sure to secure a voting bloc of those needing government hand-outs forever.

The real reason why illegals are invaluable is because socialist taxes and overhead makes hiring American labor a budget buster.
IF tomorrow, all socialist taxes and overhead were removed, there would be no economic reason to hire "under the table."
And if all taxes on industry were repealed, expatriate industries would return in a New York Minute.
. . .
But as long as recipients outvote donors, nothing constructive will happen.
. . .
No matter who wins the election, Americans will lose.

Just like Mexico or Poland are well WITHIN their rights to allow or hire who they want, or NOT put up with lawbreakers.
What about those who willingly hire illegal aliens over non-citizens with a visa, permanent resident card or employment authorization document. We don't need to punish those employers too do we?

Sure. As long as those illegal aliens are locked up 1st, see a judge and THEN given their cards.
