Illegal immigration and Capitalism,

I for one am not fond of illegal immigration. But the welfare programs in this country have created a market for it. Thanks to government welfare many Americans aren't going to work long hours in the sun harvesting tobacco, when they can sit on their butt and get money from the government. As a result there is a market in this country for illegal immigration. Illegals are said to be taking jobs that "Americans don't want" but during the Great Depression do you think there were jobs that Americans didn't want? Of course not; people at that time accepted the fact that you had to work and work hard for a living. A good cure for the illegal immigration problem, would be for Americans to recognize opportunity; even when it comes in the form of a low paying job.
