I have been a contractor since 1974. First as a licensed painting contractor in CA, then later a licensed tile and marble contractor in Florida. These are not jobs that no one else wants! Currently, living in CA again, I am amazed at how many illegal immigrants there are operating either as unlicensed contractors or actually working regular jobs in construction... earning in the $15.00 to $25.00 an hour range. Jobs Americans don't want?!
Feet on the ground will ultimately determine the course of this society's future. And controlling the flood of illegal aliens over our porous borders will go a long way to determining whose feet are on the ground. The mindset that minimizes the importance of protecting and enforcing the laws regarding our borders and elevates the "needs" of the illegal aliens via, what I see as, misplaced compassion or expediency simply encourages a disrespect for the laws of this country the day they enter. This, in turn, fosters the belief system of "whatever works for me is good." What is right (legal), over and opposed to wrong, no longer predominates. Not the stuff solid communities are based upon. So unless something is done to change the status quo of the sovereignty capitulation at the borders by our government, not just jobs but culture, law, and (yes) the very underpinnings of the American democracy are at risk.
An exaggeration? I really don't think so.
