    What difference does it make how big the household is? Of course there is going to be more welfare if one has more children. That's the rub, Natives don't, on average, have similar large sized families, which is why it's less of a problem. The study should do it on a state by state basis imo.

    Report: America attracting poor, uneducated immigrants In analyzing new Census reports, the Center for Immigration Studies found that immigrant families with one or more children use welfare far more than "native" American families. "Welfare use by illegal immigrant households is certainly a concern, but the bigger issue is welfare use by legal immigrants," said Steven Camarota, the Center's director of research and author of the report. "Three-fourths of immigrant households using welfare are headed by legal immigrants. Legal immigration is supposed to benefit the country, yet so many legal immigrants are not able to support themselves or their children. This raises important questions about the selection criteria used for legal immigration," said Camarota. Of households headed by legal immigrants without a high school diploma, 75 percent use one or more welfare programs, as do 64 percent of households headed by legal immigrants with only a high school education.

    Correct me here on this. Most job fields don't have a shortage. Dont bring people into that field unless there is a shortage. We can tell if there is a shortage when that industry gets backlogged. I would be curious too see what the employment levels of the fields illegals are working in vs say 30 years ago. Hard to find workers vs easy now in those fields. If one wants to make the discussion around costs and what it adds or takes away from the economy. I have no problem with that. I just don't see the studies that include things like What about the affect on the economy of those losing jobs, working less and receiving entitlements because of the glut of labor? Or that illegals here with family back home, send their money out of the country instead of spending it here. People usually stay at their same economic level. Why bring lower earnings into the country who will continue to earn low wages? All of what you said about training, a secure work place, lowering turnover to keep the costs of training down which is huge, is always a smart move. So aren't we going back to not enough Americans who want to work or be trained. I see this as too much of the welfare state and that some of what is presented is a symptom.

    As long as we have the welfare state yes there should be borders. No ones saying they are illegal "people" but you.

    I quoted from this which quoted the source you linked. http://nicholalowe.web.unc.edu/files/2015/06/Hidden-Talent-2010.pdf It's pages 132-146 on a study on skill-building opportunities and practices among immigrants typically considered low-skilled. And that's what you missed. The low skilled part. It's not about "personhood". It's about citizenship status. Because I have no problem with the word illegal doesn't mean I'm a nationalist or socialist.

    The gas tax doesn't cover all the costs as far as roads go does it? School you've got illegals whose parents are of little help since they don't know the system. Other students suffer scholastically. Plus many of them are on free or assisted lunches. Two schools next to where I used to live were both over 90% when it came to free or assisted lunches. Only 2 data points, I know. Texas avg ~50%

    What's wrong with the studies I provided? The illegals are competing in the fields I mentioned. Calling an illegal immigrant illegal is immoral? Really?

    Is this true? It would explain the point in the video about not all the jobs are lower paying for illegals. According to EEO laws, under the auspices of their guiding principle of Disparate Impact (in discrimination rulings), a business cannot use any employment eligibility standard that disqualifies a federally protected category (in this example ethnicity) from employment. Here’s how it works on Main Street – If you require all applicants to be legally eligible to work in the U.S., and part of that application process is the applicant providing you documents to prove that eligibility, you cannot verify those documents –> if the verification of those documents would exclude a larger percentage of ethnic applicants, protected class applicants, than the general application pool. Meaning, as an example, if you check Social Security numbers (example E-Verify) and that verification disqualifies a disproportionate amount more Latinos than all other applicants, then the verification process itself is unlawful because it creates a “Disparate Impact” against Latinos and you are guilty of violating EEOC law. That risk is why most U.S. businesses do not use E-Verify.

    Understood. Not intending to hijack but is this relating to open borders and how many to let in even if there is not a welfare state?

    How could I be wrong when we know a glut of workers in a field reduces wages? That's basic economics. Your referring to immigrants. I'm referring to illegals. Whereas studies of highly educated immigrants consider the contribution that these workers make to firms and industries, especially the ways they support innovation and the development of new knowledge practices (Saxenian 1999, 2006; Wadhwa et al. 2007; Qin 2007), studies of less educated workers instead emphasize their downward pressure on the wages and jobs of native-born workers Native-born workers have long benefited from access to formal training and credentialing supports for tacit knowledge development, including those supported by labor unions. In contrast, immigrant workers, and undocumented immigrants in particular, have limited access to these programs; and as a result, their ability both to represent their tacit knowledge and to advocate for the job opportunities and compensation that corresponds to their skill level has been severely curtailed

    Isn't the discussion more like paying $7 instead of $10? If a business needs illegals lower wages in order to survive that means their competition is doing the same thing, isn't it?

    I was referring to illegal immigration and the lower paying jobs that they do. Anytime you introduce workers into a field access to that field gets harder and wages drop. That's basic economics. We saw wages drop in unskilled construction, hospitality, and landscaping jobs.

    Bolded for emphasis. I think this is missed too often in discussions. A two pronged effect. Instead of contributing more, the under employed and unemployed, affected by illegal immigration, are taking away more.
