Its different now then it was back then. Back when our great great grandparents came to america it was to make a better life for there kids. Whether they worked on the books or off the books the money went back into our country. With the illegals in our generation they don't want to stay in america. They just want to make as much money as they can and move back to mexico or wherever, and live like kings. They are mugging the country and while they are here they are getting all the benefits because they claim they make no money. I wish I could get all the benefits they get in our country.
