Growing up I lived in farming country, you name it, they grew it, apples, cherries, asparagus, potatoes, pretty much everything except tropical fruits.

Most of the people who worked the fields were migrant and most of the migrants were illegal. Many of the migrants/illegals had their children working in the fields with them.

The vast majority of farm laborers knew how to take advantage of the welfare system, they knew about housing subsidies, energy assistance and of course the schools that provided food and clothing for their children.

Over the years I have heard just about every justification for why we "Need" illegals and one of the biggest reasons is, they work much cheaper than white people will.


I figured out long ago, the cost of these welfare programs to feed and house the illegals cost us much more than apples at $1.99 per pound. Most of the money for the welfare programs (Especially Schools) are borrowed into existence, so not only do illegals get food and housing payed for from tax payers, the tax payer also gets to pay the ever mounting interest on the debt.

Yes we will pay more upfront for our food and some services if welfare programs to illegals were ended, but we would also have A LOT of non-illegals taking these jobs and eventually the market will/should work it's self out.

You come to the United States illegally to better yourself and your family, I get that, but when you get more off my tax dollar than what you would by simply doing your job, you are now stealing from me and my family.

Many of these programs such as DACA, do nobody any good.

End not just DACA, but all social (outside of private ones) programs that put illegals ahead of Americans.

Why can people not see this?
