With much of the Arizona Immigration law on hold with the injunction by a federal judge, it is time for everyone to recognize the reality on the subject!
What is that reality? While no one wants to promote illegal immigration, and there is no doubt that it is a problem in regards to security, the reality is that illegals fulfill many job roles that no Americans will take!
A report on CNN was very revealing about this. Who do we think picks our fruits and vegetables in the fields of California? Illegal immigrants, who are paid eight dollars an hour and do back breaking work that no Americans have applied for, are those who do this, and without them, we would not have our fruits and vegetables!
Who is the majority of people working on lawn care, cleaning houses, working in hotels and motels on room service, working as dishwashers and busboys in restaurants, and many other low wage jobs that Americans run away from for employment? Illegal immigrants do these jobs, and without them, we would not have these various services done for millions of Americans!
Maybe the problem is that too many Americans are too fickle and picky about work they will accept, so maybe the work ethic is at issue!
But until there is widespread acceptance by Americans of these kinds of work, illegal immigrants will do what they have to do to survive, with the vast majority of them hard working, sacrificing for their children, paying taxes, being good law abiding people beyond the reality of how they came to this country!
Most are not drug runners, criminals, or involved in other unsavory activities, and it is unjust to label them all in the same negative description! Many are children who are here because of what their parents did, and now suffer the consequences as adults, but just want a chance to succeed in America!
We need more border security and policing, and the removal of illegal immigrants who are detriments to our society, but we cannot at this point deport millions of hard working people who actually contribute to our work life every day in ways most Americans do not appreciate!
So the nativists, who have always been against every immigrant group in America in the past, must be fought by decent Americans, not encouraged in ways that when we look back in the future, we will regret! 🙁
