Also, on this subject, one thing that really pulls at my heartstrings and why I am a supporter of strong immigration enforcement is because of the abuses imposed upon illegal residents.
I observed an India man working very hard at a restaurant one day and I noticed him because I didn't think he looked healthy enough to be working around food. A few weeks later, he was dead.
It was determined that he was in the US illegally and being enslaved by the restaurant owner. He was working more hours than a person should work and living in the poorest of conditions, all at the hands of someone who came from his country of origin. He died of an illness that could have been prevented if he had proper medical care.
He was enslaved by his own people, with no options, and that is not America.
This happens to young Asian women and girls, not just in the restaurant industry but massage parlors and sex trafficking as well. I feel very passionate about this subject because I have daughters.
Not to mention other professions like landscaping and manual labor jobs. I had non-english speaking Mexican illegals dropped off at my house for the day with no food or anything so I had to take care of them and not hire that business again. Mexican-American owned abusing other Mexicans.
I think if America is going to be the great America, we need to protect the Americans that are here, and also protect those who want to be Americans. We are not able to do that for them--- if they do not abide by the laws to being here legally in the first place.
