The group with the highest unemployment among Americans are the unskilled and low-skilled...some are drawing up to 99 weeks of unemployment. Besides the egregious direct costs that ILLEGAL aliens foist upon Middle America, we also get to support those American citizens they have displaced.
Guess who displaces them? At least 8 million ILLEGAL aliens working here.
When they make a rare "show raid" on a chicken or meat plant, Americans return to those jobs the next week...they just have to pay them a bit more.
Once ILLEGALS can stay and must be paid the same as Americans, watch THEIR unemployment SOAR...nobody would hire them if they must get paid the same instead of less under the table. The bloom would be off of that Mexicali Rose! BUT, we would be stuck with MILLIONS of undereducated, culturally disparate poor.
