illegal immigrants whose fault is it??

Take a deep breath and imagine the Bay Area 25 years ago.Who did you hire to paint your house,cut down a tree,install new flooring?If you drove by a new home construction site who was doing the construction?These are just a few examples of good middle class jobs that use to be done by American citizens.People use to make a decent living doing jobs like these.Now the wages have been slashed and guess who is doing the majority of the work?It is really our fault.Our businesses hire them and we hire them because it is cheaper and for no other reason than that.So maybe we save a little money on whatever work we are having done but at what cost to our society.With all the people out of work are we really saving money as a nation,especially when you add in the costs of educating the children of illegals,the healthcare and all the other problems that come with it.To be honest if I was poor with no hope living in Mexico and could sneek into the U.S. and get a job and a decent life I would too.But it has snowballed and gotten so out of control,and it is OUR fault for allowing it to happen.If there were no jobs,there would be no illegals.It all comes down to the greed of business's and to all of us who are happy to pay 75 bucks a month for our landscaping instead of 150 or whatever.It is like we opened Pandora's box.Big corps send there jobs overseas and the same thing is the result.We get cheaper goods and we have no jobs.Great the America has changed for the better.It all comes down to money and now we are paying the price.
