It sounds like Bush
Once here, illegal immigrants live in the shadows of our society. Many use forged documents to get jobs, and that makes it difficult for employers to verify that the workers they hire are legal. Illegal immigration puts pressure on public schools and hospitals, strains state and local budgets, and brings crime to our communities. end quote.
Poverty forces people to live in the shadows of our society.
Poverty puts pressure on public schools & hospitals, strains state & local budgets, & brings crime to our communities.
So I wonder, what is the immigration issue really all about? The immigrants or their poverty?
Or perhaps, the poverty that is becoming endemic and unshakeable from one generation to the next.
