There are 17 comments on the Philly.com story from Aug 15, 2018, titled Immigration debate has little to do with crime and everything to do with racism | Opinion. In it, Philly.com reports that:

Who is the worst person that someone can associate with you? If you are one of the 50,000 undocumented immigrants living in Philadelphia the answer to that question is probably Juan Ramon Vasquez. In 2014, Vasquez was arrested by Philadelphia police for aggravated assault and was released even though Immigration and Customs Enforcement asked the City to keep him in jail due to his immigration status.

For me, it has a LOT more to do with it than racism.

These people are bringing babies, citizens or NOT, who will have an excrutiatingly hard time finding gainful employment. And their parents - in 10 years there won't be a decent vocation left for them to ply.

We will have 25% MORE people on the dole in the next ten years. Especially when you count SSA. That figure MAY be a bit higher. May be a LOT higher.

Assistance becomes a self-fufilling destiny of failure. You can only get employment at the lowest level, because your skill set allows ONLY that. It's better (not by much) to just stay home and collect, but then how to either increase or protect your assistance becomes who you are - at least while it's going on.

The few times I"VE been umemployed, I have felt that way. "Jesus, why should I take that sh---ty job when I get just as much from the state (meaning State of Nevada, not the Orwellian usage) for NOT working. But I go nuts worrying when I'm out of work, so it never lasts too long. I can't DO it- I literally get stomach cramps worrying whether or not I'll find a job.

I always HAVE found another, but still scares me.

Bottom line - who's gonna pay to assist all these people trying to move here? We are gonna HAVE to worry about our own first. Get someone GOOD to run the VA. Fix our bridges, sewers, and electric grid.

We simply CAN'T support any more people that produce nothing, or very little. NOW and then, we'll be missing someone good. No question. But the bad outweigh the good pretty well.

Our "security forces", if you will (Border Patrol, INS,ICE), are almost assuredly stretched razor-thin. Take a lot of money to beef that up enough. A WALL? Please, it's never worked before and it never will again. Walls can be breached.

We have to go after the employers, who are actually the true "ugly gringos". they play upon these people's fears and what I call "Economic Naivety" .......... 40 dollars cash for 10 hours of pretty hard labor seems like peanuts, but when you come from a place where you earn 1,000 a YEAR, well, it's a lot .......... either that, or they coerse them by telling them they will get ratted out and deported.

They allow these people to get a foothold. Combined with any benefits they receive if they produce offspring here, it's just enough to get started.

A FEW make it higher. No argument there. But most never move from this position.

Whether you want open borders or not is irrelevant. Whether you don't "like their kind" or not is irrelevant. If you HATE racists, if you ARE racist, none of that matters.

We CAN'T keep being the world's grandparents. You may have had kids, and realized at some point that you had to once and for all, cut the freakin' cord with said kid.

If you want to revisit this issue in 25-30 years, fine, let's take a look and see if our system got better. I don't wanna lose the good immigrants.

But for now, RIGHT now, we can't take any more.

Just the usual race card pulling by the liberal left. For most Americans illegal immigration has nothing to do with race but our laws and the negative impact the illegal immigration has on our society. But how could they defend the undefendable without resorting to the race card?

Most illegals are from Hispanic descent. There's nothing racist about that, it's just a fact.
