37. Immigrants have ONE goal and ONE purpose
And it ISN'T to steal jobs from American's.
It is to find their own job--do an honest day's work and support their family.
Not very different from your goals is it?

However, their country is corrupt. They can't even rise to poverty in Mexico so getting to rise to slave wages in America is a dream come true.
They cross the desert in the dead of night--whether it is cold or hot, pack themselves in housing to save money, eat on beans and rice, and save, save, save.
It is not their fault that both countries exploit them.
Mexico exploits them to prop up their economy and corporations/small businesses exploit them for cheap labor.
There is a market for their labor here--whether you like it or not.
Take away the market, you take away their reason to come.
Give them guest worker status and let them bring their families over--then their money will stay here and Mexico will have to solve it's own problems with the economy sans the illegal immigrants.
