Republicans are complaining that illegal immigrants are stealing their low paying jobs and illegals have caused the crime rate to skyrocket. There have even been accusations of illegals receiving welfare and food stamps. Lets start off with food stamps and welfare. Unless the law has changed, you need to prove you are a US citizen to receive food stamps and welfare. Plus, illegals avoid government offices like the plague. So unless someone has evidence proving otherwise, we can put that one to bed. I could be wrong. Things change. Skyrocketing crime rate? There people have come here to work. They are ethical and honest people looking for work, not a hand out. Besides, what Republicans will ever go out and pick strawberries or nuts? It aint gonna happen. Look at where the real crime is. Gangs selling drugs. Prostitution. Robbery. These people only come here to make money and then go back to Mexico. They arent interested in living here. So besides targeting the wrong people, where do Republicans have a point? The illegals taking American jobs are building houses. Doing roofing and other kinds of construction. And they are not just Mexican. But also Polish, Serbian, and other Eastern Europeans. Then the question becomes, Do Republicans really want to do that kind of work? Or any work?
