Fact: take the jobs away and they'll still come for the handouts.

It's interesting you state that as a rebuttal to him saying immigrants wouldn't be a problem if people didn't hire them. Then you come in and say that they take jobs away. I don't know how you aren't getting this but if companies didn't hire immigrants then they WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO TAKE JOBS AWAY.

EDIT: I misread but seriously, how would they come for handouts if they don't even have a job here? Contrary to what you hear on the news, getting welfare assistance isn't easy and you have to provide so much documentation it's ridiculous. Illegal immigrants without jobs here are not getting "handouts."

lol, glossed over and misread one sentence and that obviously speaks volumes about my reading skills.

Sick burn, bro. BTW, can you also point out every typo? That would be super useful to literally every human ever. Thanks.

You're full of shit, mate. I live in El Paso and let me tell you that most illegals here are getting foodstamps and other sorts of welfare, even when they're living in fucking Mexico. To top it off, most don't pay taxes. There's even businesses here that will guide you through cheating the system to avoid getting taxed.

Then again, can you really blame them? Those few that actually follow the law are doomed to live in poverty. Those who cheat the system get the opportunity to move towards the top while the honest people get fucked over.

El Paso is a city full of cheaters and those who actually stay are either too poor to leave or have no ambition, just a desire to live off handouts.

It's kind of funny because legal immigrants, who pay the fee's, pass the background checks and attend the interviews must acquire an affidavit of support. It's similar to co-signing a loan, that person makes an obligation to support you so that you are not a drain on the system.

A legally supported permanent resident has a tough time trying to acquire financial help from the government, I really don't understand how someone with no legal status could do that. I'm not saying I don't believe you but it definitely sounds like a problem at the state level rather than federal.

I'm genuinely curious how you know this. I've just heard it said by so many but I haven't seen anything myself verifying it. If so, then it's a problem with the Texas DES or whatever department that handles welfare. There are plenty of states lock it down pretty well.

That's the elephant on the room nobody is willing to address.

You can't just walk I to a country, walk up to the... I dunno, legislature building, and hold out your hands for rolled up wads of money. It's an incredible amount of bureaucratic red tape and misery you have to suffer through.

But nah, just easiest to say they're waltzing in and having money shoveled into their pockets. Blame the victim, not the system.

Corn subsidiaries are a handout, if you get over the border you get access to the economy even though your not a part of it directly
