Re: Interview at the Border - Carol
No one was supposed to cross the border illegally. But they obviously did. And yes, many of our jobs were taken. And yes, many of them did get social services, too, especially those with children. And everyone was pregnant. I think now you see a bit fewer, because Hispanic women have become better educated about birth control and are now working everywhere. But again, the culture is different. My housekeeper's young unmarried son had children with three different women, and they all needed help. It's a common, macho thing, even though he is now a citizen. For others, who are not, it isn't either/or. American jobs are being filled by illegals, and illegal families with children do get help.
