Where is the compassion for those trying to immigrate legally? The flood of illegal immigrants into this country completely precludes the discussion of making legal immigration easier. Where is the compassion for those who do manage to come here legally, and are thus subject to our employment laws, who are illegally underbid by illegal immigrants? Where is the compassion for the citizen or legal immigrant who loses his job to an illegal immigrant who abide by our employment laws, working for less than Minimum Wage or not requiring that his FICA taxes and unemployment insurance be paid? Where is the compassion for the guy who did not get into college because an illegal immigrant got accepted instead?

One illegal immigrant asked, “Whose job am I taking?”

That’s just it. We see the illegal immigrant who took the job, and the one who took that place on the college matriculation roll. We do not see the unknown person who did not get accepted to college because the illegal immigrant did. We do not see the unknown person who did not get the job because the illegal immigrant did.
