I do think that the average illegal immigrant is smarter than the average American who's been sitting on unemployment for a year. When these guys arrive in America, they hit the ground running and don't stop. We have to give credit where it's due.
According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, March Employment Situation, the US job market added 192,000 jobs in March. Interestingly enough, the employment percentages for Americans remained almost unchanged. You might be onto something there.

Thank you for making my point.

I'm not saying anything wrong, IMO. I don't have to agree with anyone, period. This is what I say and I stand behind it. Print that, thank you! All illegals, get out. Anyone who backs them, get out.

If you had checked before posting, you might have caught one or two of the fifteen mistakes in your paragraph. I see a sad commentary on the public school system!

Not surprised this comes out of Jeb/live off the family name boy's mouth. Florida has had the most under reported ILLEGAL immigration problem for DECADES and during his run at governor he did little to nothing to curtail and/or bring attention to it. He wasn't exactly banging at brother Georges door for extra ICE enforcement.

Florida get's slammed from all sides including Mexico, South America, Europe and the Canadian snow birds-yes ILLEGAL Canadians in Florida. Why didn't he complain because his rich hospitality and agricultural buddies. Don't forget Florida was ground zero for the housing bubble. Why because the availability of cheap illegal labor for contractors and builders fueled construction in many areas. A lot of primary contractors used ILLEGAL sub contractors. Even immigrant Cubans would complain about being under bid by the Mexican and South American contractors who had access to ALOT of "cheap" ILLEGAL immigrant labor.

There's a reason Florida is a rich or poor state with a very small middle class state and Jeb was part of that problem because during his reign ILLEGAL immigration spiraled out of control.
