They would stop draining our system and give back the American people the jobs. They would stop draining health care, etc.

Huh?? imagine any FAIR compromise? there is No COMPROMISE

You deserve what you earn - you earn what you deserve

now get out there and do it FOR YOURSELF!

Low Wage Citizens got their deal by not going to school

This is what pisses me off
so many people cry the bleeding liberal heart nonsense for low wage workers ...
IT DOESN'T FLOAT!
WTF -- I am an example!
  • ninth grade schooling w/GED
  • former homeless person
  • retired w/out any government check for about 6 years now (and I am still only 52)

They are there because that is as far as they choose to get.
That is as hard as they want to work toward getting out of the rut!
IT'S SIMPLE:
To get out of that hole - you have to WORK on it.
Come on - you hear of people who work full time to support a family - then either work a second job or get more schooling.
WHAT THE HECK - what lame excuse is actually viable ... in MOST situations?
This is the answer to getting out of that rut:
When you are done with your job - go out and find some work (not another job - but WORK!)

For goodness sakes - grab a mower and cut lawns or grab a bucket, hose, and rags and wash cars - or go clean homes - or babysit

JUST DO SOMETHING besides crying
Those who do NOT want to be a low wage survivor do something about it.

... and spending a buck on a beer is not the path to take when you are poor

The real question is: Where can they not obtain public housing?

Actually, many illegal aliens live in publicly funded housing. They most likely do so as parents of their US citizen children. Or, possibly as extended families of those who legally live in public housing, or they simply do so through deception, lying, cheating, ID theft, etc.

They are able to "obtain" public housing just like they "obtain" a SSN, a job, coming across the border illegally or whatever else they do illegally.

Many illegal immigrants live in public housing - USATODAY.com

The fact of the matter is that illegals do, and are doing, whatever the want to do, illegally.

And, many are aiding and abetting them in their illegal activity and pursuits:

United States Code: Title 8,1324. Bringing in and harboring certain aliens | LII / Legal Information Institute

Quote:
(iii) knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals, harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation;

Totally beside the point. If you have such a loathing for low-wage earners, why do you want to bring millions more into this country?

Why don't you suggest the illegals do something about their situation? They too could stay in school but in their own countries (they have schools ya know) and they could get out and get a job in their own countries.

They could do something about their situation too. There is still no excuse for the cheap-labor elites to bring unlimited numbers of unskilled people into this country when the joblessness does not justify it.
