I am SICK and TIRED of ignorant dumbasses (conservatives) saying that the government needs to crackdown on illegals and keep them out of the country, without even realizing that it is the government itself that has created the problem in the first place! They bitch and moan about how illegals and mexicans are taking their jobs, and then expect the GOD DAMN GOVERNMENT to be able to fix their problems. They are the problem!
The American worker is, studies have shown, getting older and smarter. The low-level labor jobs that used to be filled by American workers are no longer needed by them. They are moving into better, higher paying jobs that usually require education and experience. You know who is filling those jobs that we've left (like construction and other blue-collar jobs)? IMMIGRANTS! Without them, we'd have a serious economic problem!
But, the god damn government and these conservative - and some liberal - assholes keep passing laws that RESTRICT immigration. In order to fill those jobs that the average American worker is leaving, people - mostly hispanics - have to become "illegal immigrants" because the government has made it damn near impossible to get here in the first place! By restricting it, you have not reduced the amount of illegals, you've actually introduced illegality to it!
But they still don't fucking get it. They preach limited government, and then when it actually comes down to it, they want to make it bigger. As a libertarian, let me be the first to tell you: limited government does not only apply to the economy, it applies to society AS A WHOLE! A free market requires a free supply of labor. Otherwise, you could have severe shortages or surpluses of labor. Labor, like any good or service, is governed by the laws of supply and demand. By restricting labor, the government has fucked too much with the system.
Get it through your heads. Immigrants have every right to live and work here, just as much as we do.
