Thousands of African-Americans and legal immigrants were made homeless, jobless and displaced by Hurricane Katrina. Many of them would take the jobs these illegals are obtaining in a minutes notice---but I don't see any efforts by good Ol' Uncle Sam to match these citizens to these jobs.
If the military draft was re-instated only citizens and legal immigrants would be called upon and not illegals. This issue would strike very close to home if the son or daughter of an American family was killed in action while your next door illegal immigrant family goes scott-free.
Notable historic figures such as Frederick Douglas, Booker T. Washington, W.E.B DuBois and Marcus Garvey were against LEGAL immigrantion until all American citizen were totally employed. Their opinions were based on the uber-high unemployment rates of AA's and even poor whites of the time and yes even being a legal citizen you could lose your job to outsourcing to foreign nations. In the mid 1980's to early 1990's how many computer company professionals lost their jobs to outsourcing.
Have you ever had to repeat yourself numerous times to a Tech-Support worker stationed in another country when your computer gliches?
I believe in full employment for Americans and legal immigrants first. I'm pro-refugee asylum (temporarily),I'm against illegals and job out-sourcing.
