People who live in America are spoiled by their birth rights! We are all immigrants of someone, and those who say otherwise are in denial. I was born and raised in California, and I believe that jobs should be given to the most qualified applicant. If this means that it is an illegal immigrant then who are we to stop them from wanting a future? Wanting a life for their family? Wanting to work? Who are we as Americans to stop people from wanting the American Dream? We should be advocates FOR the American Dream! The better argument should be, why Americans don't qualify these jobs? If you look at the unemployment rate - - It has nothing to do with immigrants! A majority of people who are unemployed are people who have no motivation to do right by their country, many decide they don't need to work because the government will AUTOMATICALLY pay for their lavish lifestyles and stay milking the system! This is what should be fixed rather than blaming other people for our faults. Did you ever think that maybe more qualified candidates could come from another country? STEP YOUR GAME UP AMERICA - - This isn't land of the WHINERS!
Immigrants should be allowed to work in the U.S. because they need to support their families just like everyone else. Believe it or not they work harder than the average american. More immigrants have made it further in life than an american because they work hard in order to achieve their goals and americans have it easy. Most of the time they are handed everything on a silver platter and are unworthy of many of the things they receive. Also the jobs go to the people who are the most qualified and in this case if they give a job to an immigrant might as well just deal with it because things are not going to change just for a group of people who are against it. Immigrants deserve to be treated with respect and given the right to work because they are human just like any other american. Therefore they should be allowed to work in the U.S.
People are forgetting that the title says ILLEGAL ALIENS. Unless you waited in line like everyone else, you should never be allowed to work in the U.S. You should be prosecuted instead of getting social security or a pay check. Maybe you should work in your own country where you are legal there.
At a time when jobs are so scarce, illegal aliens are taking jobs that legal citizens and legal residents of the U.S. could be working in. Our country needs to find a way to make sure employers are not breaking the law by hiring people who cannot prove they are legally allowed to work in the U.S.
No, illegal aliens should not be permitted to work in the U.S. Especially in a time when the economy is so unstable and so many people are out of work, priority should be given to people who are citizens or people who have come to the U.S. legally. Why should people who have broken laws (they are ILLEGAL aliens....) be able to get jobs when the rest of us would be on unemployment for weeks? It's not right.
No I do not think illegal aliens should be allowed to work here in the US. Legal citizens should have the first choice when it comes to jobs and should not have to compete with someone who came here illegally. They should have to go through the proper process to become a citizen, then they can work here.
Illegal aliens have no right to be in our country, let alone to be working. If they are illegal then there are no taxes taken from them and yet they still use our hospitals without paying. With the economy like it is, there are many hardworking US citizens that are without jobs. We can not afford illegal aliens to be taking what jobs there are.
