POLL: More than Half of Working-Class Believes Illegal Aliens Take American Jobs

Written by  John Binder

More than half of the American working-class and those living below the poverty line say illegal immigrants take jobs away from U.S.

workers, according to a new poll.

In the latest Rasmussen Reports poll on immigration, about 51 percent of Americans earning less than $30,000 a year said illegal immigrants do, in fact, crowd out American workers for jobs.

Middle-class likely voters were split equally on the issue. Forty-five percent agreeing that illegal immigrants take U.S. jobs from American workers while the same percentage say they do not take away jobs.

The poll revealed the struggle between the working-class and upper-class on the issue of illegal immigration. For instance, those earning between $100,000 and $200,000 a year were less likely to say illegal immigrants take jobs away from American workers.

Meanwhile, the wealthiest of Americans, those earning more than $200,000 a year, were the least likely to say illegal immigrants take U.S. jobs. Only 34 percent say American workers lose out on jobs taken by the illegal population.

Every year, the U.S. admits more than 1.5 million legal immigrants a year, not including the thousands of foreign workers those who enter the country to take low-skilled seasonal jobs in farming and non-farming industries.

Where are all these "freebies," that the far right always bull-s***s about? I was a "hard-working American," before I retired. Now...where are all the "freebies," you simple-minded mamzers keep yapping about? Put up or shut up! Where's the "freebies?"

I truly believe that they do take jobs away from American citizens. And I also believe that when people say "Oh they are just taking jobs Americans don't want", I think that is a cop out! Most Americans will do any job when they need to work (except maybe snowflake liberal millennials that just got a college degree and think they are owed the world!)

The reason illegals take jobs from citizens is simple: they are willing to work for less money, with worse working conditions, than citizens are.

Of course they are and if they weren't here taking so called 'lower ladder' jobs the lower ladder jobs wouldn't be so lower ladder because, employers would have to pay higher wages for those jobs...

illegals not only take jobs from American people, but housing, transportation, medical services etc. Most don't pay taxes they send money back home, most do not contribute to the American population who pay taxes, this is wrong, you work here, you pay taxes here you do not send the money earned back home, you leave here and should be supporting the American businesses. Then again many American people will not do meneal jobs., and want higher wages. crazy our forefathers started at the bottom of th ladder and worked their ways up the ladder by doing work and not taking their work lightly, not goofing of or being over social t work, only at breaks .

Duh, of course! If they were doing jobs in their countries, they wouldn't be illegals doing (American) jobs in America...

The businesses that like depressed wages support open immigration. Whether tech H1B visas or hospitality workers, the ready availability of foreign workers keep all wages down. That the same leftists who benefit from the donor class also benefit from the influx of largely socialist leaning labor is simply the cream for the cat. Crony capitalism and socialism can be indistinguishable. After all, both Hitler and Mussolini were first of all, socialist and their best allies were the 'elite'.

Well, they're PARTLY right. Illegals are holding AMERICAN jobs. BUT...the jobs are at the BOTTOM of the jobs-ladder. Jobs that LeeRoy and Daisy Mae wouldn't touch with a TEN-FOOT POLE. Jobs in the snow, rain, cold, heat, and mud. Jobs that require HARD work. So don't try to tell me that there's a line of white boys, eagerly awaiting their opportunity to push a shovel or swing a pick, if the illegals disappear.

Wrong again, Davis.

When the bracero program was ended in the 1960s, it was a terrible hit for the agriculture industry; and in particular fresh fruit and vegetable farmers. They couldn't get domestic workers to pick lemons and oranges. And the fruit and table grape farmers in the central valley of California suffered terribly.
Just because 50% or more of the "working class" believe that undocumented workers are taking their jobs doesn't make it so. On a parallel, just because most republicans don't believe in climate change doesn't mean that they're right. Witness the increasing magnitude of hurricanes and wild fires. All because the oceans are warming up and that is the engine that creates stronger hurricanes. I live in Montana and we've lost more than one million acres to wild fires this year....because of drought in our state. Other states are suffering the same fate. Warmer oceans change weather patterns dramatically and, as a nation, we're experiencing the result of said weather patterns.
Joseph Davis is spot on with his comment. To Brad Stewart: Would you pick lemons or oranges or peaches for a living? I thought not. Tell us why you thing J.Davis is wrong. Don't just flap your fingers on your keyboard. Give us some proven and well informed information why you think J. Davis is wrong. Ahh. I thought so there too. You can't.
