Illegal immigration is barely a problem. Here in Arizona many of those who illegally arrive from Mexico and Central America are hard-working laborers that our economy needs.
The problem is the trafficking of drugs and people back and forth across the border.
Spoken like one truly detached from the problems they do create for a great many people. They obviously are not taking your job, or crowding your streets, or dynamically changing the cultural, racial, political, or financial landscape of your town or city. Not to mention the problems and or damage caused personally to those who own homes or property within their chosen paths of illegal entry. Or the huge cost of caring for and placing millions into society, or more over many times creating whole new communities which have no intention of integrating into our societies, bringing up the massive cultural changes subject again.
Working in construction for about 40 years now I have seen several entire companies and trades completely taken over by them. Displacing countless people who once filled those job positions. While such obviously benefits companies who can pay their employees much lower wages, it obviously also negatively effects those displaced by them.
When I was sub-contracting work, I dealt with this. The company I was subbing for, used them as well, and I ended up having them work on jobs with me. Several of them would show up, install systems faster than I could keep up with at times, and not very well. It was obvious they could copy others work as it were, but did not really understand the dynamics of what they were doing, and therefore wrongly installed certain things. This can change over time of course, if they will learn as they go, as so many do. Driving one home from a job we were working on one day, I had some conversation with him, and found out that there was no way I could compete with these guys price wise. There were twelve of them living together in one home. Splitting payment for the bills and food, and sending as much as possible home to relatives in Mexico. That is why they could work for so much less. My personal overhead was way above theirs, simply because I was an established citizen with a family, home, vehicles , private education, insurance, taxes, and so on and so forth, to keep up. There was no way I could compete price wise with these guys. They weren't here for the same reasons I was at all, they were just here to use the system for a while, to enrich themselves and their families back home at the expense of our nation and people.
This isn't to say they were not productive, or even necessarily evil for using a system put in place for them to do so. It is however to address just a few of the very real problems such creates for those who are displaced by millions of them entering our country. The bottom line is that those effecting all of this, are not the ones most seriously effected by it. Nor apparently do they care about those who are seriously effected. They have a means, which justifies their ends, in their own minds in any case. Politicians elected to represent their citizens in a government which is supposed to be for the people and by the people, do not put the citizens of other nations before those they were elected to serve. When they do, there are obviously ulterior motives involved. Which are basically traitorous in character, concerning what their real jobs should be. All of these things must be carefully weighed and balanced concerning the effects of legal and illegal immigration upon existing populations, by a government which is supposed to be serving them. Obviously our leaders are serving a different purpose than that which they were elected for, when they effect massive immigration seriously and often negatively effecting their own citizens. The link below addresses one of the culprits they are serving unto the globalist agenda, over and above their own people. http://www.gracecentered.com/christian_forums/seventh-day-adventist-forum-(sda)/immigration-over-conversion/
