question about illegal immigration and how it affects the economy?Answer
ive heard people say a time or two that illegal immigration adversely affects the US economy badly because all they "take away all the jobs that are intended for the US citizens themselves". my arguement to this, is that, even though they arent legally citizens, just the overall fact that they are working at a job and earning money, ..eventually they spend money on good & services they require, wouldnt they be bolstering the economy just on their paycheck they spend alone, not to mention all the new jobs that theoretically would be created to service all the new people entering this country?
They send a lot of the money that they earn to their home country. So they are not spending that money here in the US (like a citizen would) so that is a loss for the US economy.

It ruins our schools and services because even if they pay taxes poor people use much more in services like education than they pay in taxes. Big business likes the cheap labor but we are paying for the 'benefit package' that draws the labor here, and our children are paying the price with their futures.
It is not cleanly split along party lines. Populist Republicans favor enforcement first, then figure out what to do with those here. Big business Republicans like the cheap labor, but don't really care about giving citizenship or permanent rights. Democrats split, but are generally more pro-amnesty and accept the guest worker idea out of compromise rather than conviction.
