So, basically, you're saying that the immigrants are paying into the unemployment insurance pool, and into the tax pool at a time when the now unemployed Texans can't. They have managed to get jobs that the regular Texans haven't been able to get for one reason or another — the wages may be too low, the benefits may be too low, the hours may be too bad, the working conditions may be too foul. They are, as a result, supporting their fellow Texans, keeping the schools and hospitals and other services running.
The locals know that these jobs are wretched and won't for one reason or another, take them themselves, otherwise, I suspect, they would already have had them unless for some reason the folks offering the jobs have a preference for immigrants.
What would be the reasons for such a preference, John, and why wouldn't those folks who are out of work be grateful that their safety net was being maintained by these out-of-state workers? What's your thinking on this, and why are you upset by it?
