I don't know anyone that will admit they find it useful to have illegal aliens in the United States. I know there are those out there that fell is okay, but they're the first that lock their doors, when the news stories appear about how there's a foreign national rapist running the streets. I call them hypocrites and pathetic excuses for citizens.
The first thing anyone should ask: "So how do they survive?"
Many work for your local farmer, that is probably being paid to not raise something. They're notorious for turning their heads, allowing these people to work and disregarding the effect it has on the entire country. That's another group of people that are pathetic excuses for citizens.
Another group are contractors. While most contractors that are on the up an up hire citizens, or documented workers, many don't. You won't find these contractors working on highways, or in industrial facilities. They can't hire illegals due to contract stipulations, the demand for a complete I-9 form and the possibility of losing their license, or being prosecuted. It's the really good deal contractor that you slip some cash to build the new porch, or paint the house and you never ask for documentation.
Many just ply their trade on the street. They'll put a sign, or word of mouth will give them business. People hire them - knowing damn well the cheap price is not due to special overhead - and turn their back on the laws that determine if a person can legally work in the United States.
Some cities have a lumber yard, or a special spot, where illegals stand around waiting to be hired for the occasional odd job. The potential employer just drives up, motions to the worker, a deal for how much is made and they're off to get the fence row cleaned, or a ditch dug.
The problem of illegal aliens would disappear in less than a year, if people would demand documentation before they hired anyone, for any reason; refused to do business with those that do not have the distinction of being a good citizen and letting those that do their displeasure in contributing to a problem that is causing financial hardships on everyone that is legally in the United States.
So, if you were wondering, now you know. The problem isn't the illegal aliens; the problem is us. If you're not willing to be proactive in stopping the problem, then you deserve the hardships that are the result. May your children end up being disrespected, abused and wondering why they can't survive, when they find their adulthood is that of an employee of someone that broke dozens of laws and still avoids being assimilated into American society.
If you don't believe there is a problem, visit a local emergency room and count the number of people that don't speak English fluently; if at all. That's not a group of tourists that happened to catch the flu, while on vacation. Meanwhile, you might wait, or listen to your child cry, while those that can only be described as criminals use the resources you pay for and don't care how much it harms you. They send their money home and if any filters into the public funds, it's not nearly enough to cover the costs.
In Case You've Wondered
My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.
If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com
One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.
I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.
