They do jobs Americans are not willing to do, for slave wages.

Those wages are also made possible by government subsidy: immigrant jobs are unreported and paid under the table, leaving workers free to belly up to the welfare buffet table since they have "no income".

they have to have some form of permanent/legal status to belly up to the welfare table, otherwise it's nothing for u mexican. They get anchor children though, democratic voting children allow them all the best pickins off the taxpayer's dime.

Alright, please prepare to down-vote me. I work with tons of illegals, and they are the best, most honest, hardworking people I know. Unlike the neoliberal American scumbags I work with, they have no sense of entitlement, perhaps because they didn't grow up in a culture where kids get trophies just for being mediocre at soccer. They actually work hard, and they don't expect to be praised for it. They work hard because it is their job. I ain't saying that most of my American colleagues are bad, they're great, but some of them are just shit at their jobs. They don't try; they feel as though they are entitled to a living. One of the neoliberal American scumbags I work with brags about how she is on welfare, and how she can't work too many hours or she will lose her benefits. She might be the most privileged person I know, despite her constant cries of women being oppressed. I'll take a bunch of honest, hard-working illegal immigrants over a spoiled American brat leeching off of the welfare system any day of the week.

These illegals now qualify for welfare and government assistance. They are hardworking because they have no other choice to be, but that's changing.

I cant stand to sit on my ass or to take money I did not earn and I understand some of these Latin Americans(continental not US) are the same, but our government is creating a climate where anyone who shows up gets a paycheck. Which is very disturbing when you take a glance at Europe.

Brilliant. Dems have been pandering to immigrants (particularly illegal ones) and minorities for votes for decades.

"We're racist pieces of shit, but you want food stamps still right?"

The Democrats have consistently been the party of immigration going back to Andy Jackson due to their status as representing the downtrodden. When Irish Catholics started streaming in heavily into the North in the 1830s they aligned with Southerners against Yankee Whigs.

So it's a very old scam. Unsurprisingly the much maligned Alien and Sedition Acts were opposed by the predecessor of the Democrats led by Thomas Jefferson. The Acts targeted immigrants and thus the voters of Jefferson's party.

They must have not like the downtrodden too much, bc up until the civil rights act of 1964, most dems supported separate but equal status for blacks. And previously slavery

LOL. Count only minority votes and the GOP can't win a national election. In fact they'll lose in a landslide by a minimum of 2-1.

They supply the workforce with cheap labor(often off the books) driving down wages, Americans then don't want that job.

Edit: This post should say "Illegal immigrants," because legal immigrants are Americans. Since not all legal immigrants are citizens, I retract my previous statement, and am sorry I made such an obvious error of thought.

Do you believe a legal immigrant Somali goatherd plopped down in Lewiston, Maine is an American? Every bit as much an American as someone whose family was here before the Revolutionary War?

A prerequisite for being a part of the national community is that a person feels part of that community and that the national community accepts him. Or is being an American nothing more than having the right paperwork?

Since not all legal immigrants are US citizens, I retract my previous statement of "This post should say "Illegal immigrants," because legal immigrants are Americans," and am sorry I made such an obvious error of thought. However I think all citizens of the United States are Americans.

It's a facetious way of putting it, but yes if you are legally a citizen then you are an American. I really don't even get what you're trying to say. What part of the constitution or the founder's ideas do you think would have us form some kind of arbitrary test to deem which citizens are "true Americans" and which ones aren't?

Do those immigrants call themselves Americans and pay tax? Or are they working for wages that are paid under the counter?

"Actually a lot are "legit" as they give fake green cards or social security cards so that are on official payroll but they're paid minimum wage so they don't really pay actual taxes"

Unpopular opinion

Maybe the minimum wage should be high enough so these people arent on government assistance and pay taxes.

Yes

tl;dr? They come in, get fake ID's and SSN then pay into them through their wages without ever actually being able to take out. They need these for farming jobs because they can't get hired otherwise, and the farmers can't find people to do it for cheap enough otherwise.

The argument is that Americans will also do that if you pay them more

It's a racist argument which is accepted because it benefits Liberals and non-Whites. It means that non-White immigrants will self the White race so it's okay to have them come into the country as a servant class. But it is a lie which is meant to subvert the White Americans and steal the country from them.

Subtract the population whose families have arrived since our immigration laws were changed in 1965 to facilitate mass Third World inflow or people whose families came in illegally and the Democrats would lose national elections by double digits.
