    Actually, my interest lies in the fact that non-citizen migrants from Mexico or elsewhere are easy targets for criminals and thugs, since they're less likely to report crimes due to 1.) lack of language skills 2.) lack of knowledge concerning their rights and 3.) fear of deportation should they be discovered in this country or their identity be made known.

    Them being easy targets and me being a compassionate human being, I'd like to see measures taken to ensure at least that they are treated civilly and humanely.

    Teenagers used to work the low end jobs. The only reason they don't anymore is because Mexicans came in and undercut the wages. If illegals were not here getting low interest home and car loans that I, a hardworking American can't qualify for, then teenagers would go back to work and get of the X-Box.

    In fact many illegals from these countries are themselves criminals and thugs, and often prey on each other. And despite their lack of language skills, not seemingly factored in prior to their illegal arrival, and lack of knowledge concerning their rights, they still flock to the American border, escaping from the corruption and incompetence of their own governments. That's where the real fault lies.

    Genuinely compassionate human beings tend not to boast of their compassion. And this is made less plausible when these cliamants are suggesting others are responsible for vicious crimes that have yet to be proven.

    Unlike you, I believe in the free market. Citibank thinks they can make a buck offering cheap loans to Mexicans? Great. Companies would rather hire Mexicans than your unreliable kid who sleeps till noon? Fantastic.

    If your teenager has a hard time getting a job, that's on them. There are plenty of ways to take the initiative and make a living.

    You don't understand history, are obviously a racist that would rather see a low interest loan go to a brown skinned person than a white one and my kids are 8 and 10 years old and they work to make their money.

    Anyone who 'thinks' that Latinos have no interest in parenthood hasn't checked out their birth rate lately.

I mean after all most people do not feel a lot of remorse for a convicted criminal and are willing turn a blind eye. When people are given complete power over others abuses tend to eventually happen.
    I am not sure what you mean by "our" prison system unless you mean federal prisons. Other than these, don't individual states run their own prisons? I am not at all prepared that the prisons in my state are "rife with mistreatment."

    You're right. Only one of us knows the meaning of words.
    mi·grant


    /ˈmīgrənt/


    noun

    noun: migrant; plural noun: migrants



    1.


    an animal that migrates.



    •a worker who moves from place to place to do seasonal work.
    noun: migrant worker; plural noun: migrant workers


    synonyms: immigrant, emigrant; More
    nomad, itinerant, traveler, vagrant, transient, rover, wanderer, drifter

    "they exploited the migrants who toiled in their orchards for dismal wages"





    adjective

    adjective: migrant



    1.


    tending to migrate or having migrated.
    "migrant birds"


    synonyms: traveling, wandering, drifting, nomadic, roving, roaming, itinerant, vagrant, transient More
    "migrant workers"

    That right there is the traditional meaning. I actually live in a community heavy with former migrants. I say former because the white then INS vans stopped coming by at the end of the season. It was a reminder the season was over and the migrants would return home and live on the wages they earned while here. There are migrant visas still.
