Two root causes for illegal immigration
When it comes to the subject of illegal immigration, two huge root causes are often ignored by our government and the media. One is a U.S. welfare system that allows millions of able-bodied young adults to sit idle. Many of these have no desire to work at any job due to the destruction of the work ethic. This is why home builders, landscapers, etc., are often forced to use workers who are illegal. The second cause is the corrupt inept governments of Latin America that have failed for decades to provide a decent economy to take care of their citizens.
Nothing will change on illegal immigration until these two issues are addressed.
