Whenever I’ve stated that illegal aliens are stealing jobs from American citizens, I usually hear from liberals, Democrats and bleeding-heart do-gooders, all of whom tell me that illegals only take jobs that American citizens won’t take. I know for a fact that is not true.
I personally know men who worked in the construction industry. They worked hard in all kinds of weather so they could provide for their families. Some of those same men ended up unemployed because contractors and builders were hiring illegal aliens for less money, often paying them cash without reporting it or paying taxes. I dare any of those who have argued against me to stand face-to-face with any of these men and tell them that illegal aliens only take jobs Americans won’t take.
I’ve seen the same thing happen in restaurants. Some restaurants have been raided by Border Patrol and had the majority of their kitchen and cleaning staff arrested for being illegal aliens. A few weeks later, the same restaurants were open for business because they hired American citizens who needed jobs.
Some liberals and Democrats have gone so far as to give illegal aliens preference over American citizens.
In 2014, The Denver Public School District just hired their first illegal alien to teach at their Denver Center for International Studies as Ford Elementary School. Alejandro Fuentes Mena is now a fifth-grade teacher at the school and he is not a US citizen nor does he have any legal paperwork that allows him to stay and work in the US. He says that his parents came to the US illegally from Chile when he was four years old.
Their goal is to be the first school district in the nation to actively recruit teachers who were brought to the United States illegally and are given the status as ‘deferred action for childhood arrivals by the Obama administration.
Why are they so actively recruiting illegals to be teachers?
Tom Boasberg, Superintendent of the Denver Public School District says that ‘undocumented immigrants’ make up 10%-20% of the student population.
In 2014, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s former White House Chief of Staff, announced that he was opening up the city’s 23,000 jobs and internships to illegal aliens.
The official news release reads in part:
“Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced today that the City is, for the first time, opening up nearly 23,000 City-funded internship, volunteer, and job opportunities for undocumented students, or ‘DREAMers.’”
Some prestigious colleges and universities have been admitting illegal aliens for positions that would otherwise go to American citizens. In one case, Stanford admitted a former homeless illegal alien by giving him a coveted elite student slot. Along with the admission, the illegal received financial aid along with grant and scholarship money. By granting the coveted slot to the illegal, Stanford had to turn away a number of qualified American citizens who had applied for the same position.
