The vast majority of them won't even return your call. The others will at least contact you and then schedule you out weeks later.

These are people that take on the jobs at your favorite restaurant, and help keep costs down. That work in the fields to keep our food prices down. They take on many jobs that citizens simply won't and don't do. Many do pay taxes, and through rent, also contribute to property taxes. So how is this hurting you exactly? Be careful what you wish for.

BTW- what Trump is doing, it's not about him making the hard decisions or being brave and unafraid. It's Trump taking the easiest course of action that any President could have done- at the expense of men, women, children, and families. That's why 'no other President has done it before'. The others have a sense of human decency and know that the proper, humane solution is far more complex!
Who is tearing families apart? No one is stopping all illegal family members from going with them, any anchor babies can go with them and come back when they're adults.

Productive? Exactly how are illegals being productive? They can't work without a SSN, if they have one that's another crime. Illegals are keeping wages down in construction, but you don't care as long as you get cheap labor, right?
