I see we have another case of big business misusing the government. Big business expands their business in which they need more cheap labor. Illegal immigrants come here looking to better their families' lives. Big business makes big profits and the American people probably pay their housing, food, automotive repair, medical, and maybe part of their wage.
Are we the only country that takes care of illegal immigrants better than their citizens? Is there a quota on how many people from each country are allowed? Some immigrants have been here for seven years and they still need a translator. Why is it that Americans need shots to travel abroad, but immigrants aren't required to be tested or medical shots be brought up to date as our children are required in our schools? Speaking English helps them and their children in the long run and the shots keep all of us healthier. Big business should foot the bill if they want the cheap labor.
The illegal immigrants are even protesting now, telling us, the legal citizens, what they want. I thought the majority rules in this country, except in presidential campaigns. It seems the American people bend over backwards for the immigrants and all I see are foreign names in the convictions and drug smuggling articles in the paper.
We have enough criminals in the people that are citizens that we don't need any more criminals. Business owners should be fined for hiring illegals. Illegals convicted should be deported the next day . Temporary visas should be allowed for certain time frames. We don't take care of the people already here and the illegals want us to take care of all the people of the world. If big business doesn't get their way, they just pack up and move to another country if the lobbyist don't convince some politicians to do their way. It's time to say no.
