What bugs you more, Illegals who come here and work hard for less, or CEOs who made billions, who need you to eat their toxic loans so that they can keep their jobs?

I voted one way but both bug me about the same because 2 wrongs make no right. On top of that Illegals cost tax payers billions so I'd like to see them both disappear. At least one is private sector and not ganking money directly from my pocket like social services do.

I'd rate it about the same.

Both.

Is this thread intended to justify illegal immigration? Because it's a simply a crime and everyone knows it. It's important that we know who enters this country and that he/she does it legally especially when our country is facing threats of drug cartel violence and terrorism.

Cant vote because the answers are designed to be inflamatory.
One has nothing to do with the other.
Illegals and CEO's???????
Fact CEO's get paid what corporate america allows and by law.
Illegals are just criminals.

The moral issue is what's at stake here. An 'illegal' who claws his way across the border and works hard for less is spat on, while the 'legal' worker, who skirts the border of 'legality', can scam the 'system' of billions, which could be from fixed income retirees, all so thay can enjoy the privileges of the wealthy. Aside from 'legality', what about 'morality'?

The illegal who steals their way accross the border?
The illegal who low balls wages forcing legals out of work?
What about the morality of ID theft?
What about the thousands of illegals who once here commit violent crimes against legal citizens?
I care about the common man . The legal citizen trying to support their family.
I have no compassion for illegals as they are 100% of them criminals.

Here is a thought that will not doubt irritate many and maybe make some laugh.

1. You can pay an illegal $25 to get your yard cut and it does not cost any citizen their job.

2. Greedy CEOs cost us (Tax Payers) $,$$$,$$$,$$$,$$$... and have help to put us in a recession and hundreds of throusands of hard working americans out of work. (and they don't cut grass).

One is making money illegally doing honest work and the other is making money legally and have nearly killed our childrens future.

Which one should go to jail ? 1 or 2 or Both ?

Sure ...illegals work hard for their money...thats what physical work is...hard labor with the hands and not the brain.

I have never heard of a illegal being highly educated or being a profesional person with a degree or college education coming across the border illegally.

The majority if not all have barely the grade school education and their expertise is doing the menial type of work (will not list the various jobs they do).

The work they are doing is what they are qualified to do considering lack of education etc.

Sorry... but that is the route of the problem across the whole country where they congregate.

Easy for you to point the finger. European immigration has always been easier than it has been for other races, even though there are plenty of illegal Irish, Polish, Russian, etc in this country.
A man who's only crime is to try and support his family is not a great offense in my view. The man born with a gold spoon up his ass, who then proceeds to bilk retirement funds, retirees, widows, et al out of their life saving because he feels 'entitled' I have no problem hanging from the rafters.
