Ralph D'Ambrosio has it wrong. It is an old, worn-out myth. What exactly are these jobs that are taken away? There are i lines of US citizens or legal residents standing in lines to pick strawberries, lemons, or lettuce; no lines of eager employees in the packing houses making ketchup; no lines of eager employees waiting for the jobs in hotels to clean rooms; no lines in industrial laundries washing and folding towels and sheets; no lines to be bus boys in restaurants or tending to our very young, elderly, and the sick and dying.
The question is boils down to what are Americans, as a nation, willing to give up, willing to sacrifice in our way of life when the "illegal" immigrant is thrown out and whole sectors we rely on collapse.
This is a complex issue.... No fifteen-second soundbite provides a rationale solution.
