Dave, countries more automated than us have to import low skilled labor to meet their labor demands.
Japan does it, JAPAN, the country that HATES immigrants, is right now tricking low-skilled people to come in and work on their farms, and shell their crabs.
Because no one else is available to do those jobs. No one else cares.
3rd generation, latinos are earning around $42,000 a year, they’re middle class, they’re supporting themselves. This is why economists do not object to them.
The 1st generation might take more in benefits, but the 2nd and 3rd are always a net surplus.
And that’s just Government, to the economy, they are always a contributor, even the 1st generation.
There has been no exceptions to this trend. Italians were like this, the Polish were like this, African immigrants today are like this, and Latinos are like this.
No exceptions Dave. Every group of immigrants, every immigration wave, has been like this.
