Yes, we were formed and built by immigrants. LEGAL ones, we didn’t have welfare and handouts and all that when this country was being built. When we started to see the influx we put guidelines in place, NOT TO BE MEAN, but to make sure we COULD help everyone. Yes, there is only so much to go around… DEAL WITH IT! We are the most giving nation on the planet even in hard times…
BUT we can’t give more than we have. We have to have jobs to give. We have to be secure to give.

A recent Rasmussen Reports poll found that 61 percent of Americans believe that if immigration laws were enforced, a result would be less poverty in this country. (The telephone survey of 1,000 Adults was conducted on April 2-3, 2011 by Rasmussen Reports, with a margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points.)
In July 2007, Rasmussen asked the same question and found that only 45 percent of Americans held that belief.
The large increase may indicate that Americans are becoming more aware of the impact illegal aliens are having on the high rate of unemployment in this country…
He went on to show the stats…
The Fiscal Policy Institute study also found that illegal aliens are filling certain jobs in New York City in the following numbers:
-Painters, construction & maintenance…7,000 (34 percent of workforce)
-Cooks…21,000 (33 percent of workforce)
-Construction laborers…17,000 (32 percent of workforce)
-Automotive service technicians & mechanics…5,000 (26 percent of workforce)
-Carpenters…9,000 (26 percent of workforce)
-Taxi drivers & chauffeurs…11,000 (20 percent of workforce)
-Truck drivers…9,000 (15 percent of workforce)
According to U.S. Census data, Mexican immigrants (both legal and illegal) are more likely to have a job than those who were born in New York City. About 75 percent of all Mexican nationals in New York between ages 16 and 65 are employed in the civilian work force.
Even more astounding, the unemployment rate among Mexican illegal aliens in New York City is only around four percent.
With 1 in 5 Americans out of work, we simply cannot afford to allow one job go to an illegal alien. The issue of illegal immigration is now a fight for the survival of the American family.
For every illegal alien with a job, there is an American without one.
