If all your mothers would be willing to care for their own children, instead of using their free time exhibiting their naked selves on the beach for the world to see, then there wouldn't be a need to hire undocumented workers as nannies in the first place.

If all your fathers stopped going out of town/country on "business"(to molest underage girls and boys more like it)and mow their own lawns, then there wouldn't be the need to hire undocumented workers as landscapers.

American Workers Continue to Pick up Jobs Left Vacant by Immigration Raids

A new report in USA Today finds that unemployed U.S. citizens continue to
fill up jobs left vacant by immigration raids, particularly at meatpacking
and poultry plants. The reports says that plants impacted by the raids were
back up and running at full capacity within months of the raids.
Vanderbilt University professor Carol Swain said the raids were beneficial
to the American workforce.

"Whenever there's an immigration raid, you find white, black and legal
immigrant labor lining up to do those jobs that Americans will supposedly
not do," Prof. Swain said in the USA Today article.

The USA Today report cites a study conducted by Steven Camarota at the
Center for Immigration Studies that found Americans holding the majority of
positions in fields that many claim are dominated by illegal aliens.
