All it takes is some effort and part of the problem can be solved.

It's alright to be homeless and beg for change in America, but it is wrong to try and work for it?

I guess you are missing the point they should not be here AT ALL!



All these illegal immigrants need to be drived back to where they came from so Americans can have jobs.

Is there a law stating day laborers must use an agency?

Please.

It's common, whether intentionally or unintentionally, to use the word "immigrant" as a blanket term to include both legals and illegals.
