Proponents of open borders always say that illegal immigrants are filling jobs that Americans don't want to do. Exactly what are those jobs? Cleaning our homes, mowing our lawns, picking our fields and taking care of our children?? Does anyone, besides myself, see ANYTHING WRONG with this mentality? Because it sure shocks the heck out of me that people can actually say these things unchallenged! It seems to me that this is just a modern-day form of slavery, with less responsibility for the payor, and more responsibilities for the payee.
That's right, I said it.
Don't jump ahead of me and turn off your brain. I am not comparing this to the brutalizing, regretful slavery of Africans in the 1800's or any forced slavery. That was a tragic period in American history, and I (along with everyone else) acknowledge that.
But let me submit, when, after slavery was abolished, did it ever become acceptable that we would deem an entire race of people 'good enough' only to serve our meals, clean our homes, and pick our fields? Here you go, these are jobs no one else wants, you take them in exchange for not being deported.
Is it really okay just because we pay them? Many will say yes because they are doing well for themselves here. They are much better off here than they would be in their home country. Maybe financially. And thus the exploitation. Those that enable these law-breakers for the sake of cheap labor are not only doing a huge disservice to America, they are allowing for an entire racial segment of people to be subservient to a more well-educated society. We don't EXPECT them to learn our language, which means we don't EXPECT them to further their education, which means they will never achieve the true American dream. But, I guess that's ok for those that avert their eyes from the border, because if we closed the door, then who, after all would do those jobs?
Why should it be considered embarrassing for some teenagers or first jobbers to take a lower paying job? No kid should ever say that mowing lawns and babysitting or working loading hay was beneath them.
That's just ...CRAZY!!!!!!!!!
But Illegals are doing more than just filling low paying jobs. They work at manufacturing jobs and construction jobs. Are these REALLY jobs Americans won't do? No, these are jobs that stolen from Americans by illegals (on the promise of citizenship), again for the sake of CHEAP LABOR!
I have a solution, enforce immigration laws...
Abolish open borders ~ Shut down slavery.
