      They don't need to come here to hack election. They do it remotely.

      Sure, but the reality now is whoever was born in America is American. if economy is good and citizens all get good jobs and live happy lives, immigrants are welcomed. Things turn sour when local people lose jobs or don't get the job they expect. Immigrants are the first to be blamed.

      Stop being stupid. Native Americans are not real ones. They came from Asia few thousands year ago.

      The point being that every "American" was and is an immigrant at one point. Unfortunately there's a long history of more established immigrants blaming newer ones for their misfortunes, since they are no longer competitive economically. Quite childish behavior. If the market values your labor less then you either step your game up or shutup and quit being a bigot...

      Obviously people here fear H1Bs from China and India more than illegal ones from Central America as illegals don't directly competes with their jobs

      Illegal immigrants do the service industry jobs and hard labor work (farming, construction, etc.) that no one else wants to do
      Dec 6
    • Amazon / EngGHskann
      So what
      Dec 6
    • Salesforce lzdE44
      It means there's a lack of supply from us citizens to do that work, and if illegal labor was taken away then the prices of all goods from industries utilizing them will go up 🙄

    • Salesforce lzdE44
      If you're so anti-illegal then by definition you should abstain from any good or service that involves them

    • Amazon / EngGHskann
      Thinking there’s a lack of supply of able workers signals to me you don’t understand basic economics. We don’t see things at all the same
      Dec 6
    • Salesforce lzdE44
      It's you who doesn't have the basic understanding... Illegals work for pay and conditions (no benefits, worker protections, and hours) that citizens don't want to work for clearly, in order to attract citizens they would have to pay more, thus increasing the cost of goods and services...

      I don’t care about any of that — illegals should be deported!

      So did slaves. And some industries suffered when slavery was abolished.
      It does not mean we should support industries hiring people who reside in the country illegally, without legal protection, at under legal minimum wage and without benefits.
      If you are dense enough to not understand why all this bad you can as well start fighting for the return of slavery.

      It's clearly not a black and white issue. People are willing to risk life and limb to come over and work in the states illegally (ex: the so called migrant Caravan from southern America), cause even all the perils of illegal labor are still better than working at their native countries. Industries and employers are just as guilty for employing illegals to reduce their labor costs. Americans benefit from cheaper goods and service costs. Of course, illegal immigrants slap everyone who's immigrated legally in the face in the process.

  • Well, Africans and Latin Americans have lower IQs than Asians. Switch to merit immigration and eliminate visa lotteries and chain migration.

      OP
      I highly doubt it will happen. According to the poll, the so-called higher IQ Asians are perceived as bigger threat for Americans because they are robbing jobs from Americans. So Africans and Latin Americans, who do the work that no American wants to do, are more welcomed than Asians, who are robbing high paying jobs that every American wants to do, in the US.
