Undocumented Workers In The United States Do Not Take Away Jobs From U.S. Citizens

793 words - 3 pages

Have you ever stopped to think how much you would do for your family? You should think about what Immigrants do for their family. Immigrants cross the border everyday. Americans think that they just "walk over", "no big deal." You never hear the real story; you never hear how they are treated. Once they actually get across, they get to live like they deserve, lavishly, right? That's far from the truth. They cross the border and get low-paying jobs (usually 2 dollars an hour) and that's still better then what they would receive in their homeland. Isn't that something? Some Americans say that Immigrants are taking away jobs. What American would be willing to work for 2 dollars an hour as a janitor or maid? Not many.

It has four rooms, but in the two of them, part of the brick walls have fallen down. The roof is asphalt sheeting. There's badly rusted bed in each of the two better rooms. Their mattresses are filthy and stained and their coverings are torn...." It also states that twenty-four people had to stay in that house. It also explains what happens while crossing the river, "The River is swollen and its swift current makes a sound like that of a coming storm. The water is dirty and thick and stained gray, like the color of dirt on the riverbank. Pieces of wook and branches flost on it's surface." Martin and the other...
