The American dream of most people who come to this country both legally and illegally is to just work, and have a better life for themselves, and to send monies back to their home countries which for the most part are located in Central America. American businesses have always looked for cheap unskilled labor to make their profit margin rise. The labor laws of our country have a minimum wage that is set by the government. The wages for these jobs are far better than what could be earned back in the so-called third world countries south of the Mexican border.
The president has given the ICE the green light to arrest, and if possible deport anyone who is living in this country illegally who comes in contact with law enforcement for something as simple as a running a stop sign. The immigration dragnet will catch people from all over the world. The Muslim ban was just in my opinion test case for the Trump administration to block all who covet access to the United States, and the opportunities for a better life.
America cannot save the world from itself that is not our job. We who are fortunate to be able to say we are citizens of the most powerful country on earth should count our blessings, and at some point really consider what we as individuals can do no matter how small to change the status quo of a world that is looking for a solution to how to survive life as we know it. Doing the right thing is a good starting point. The jobs that are being taken for the most part no citizen of this country would work for at the wages paid that is a fact to be considered. Lest we forget.
