    Yes it is. It has also contributed heavily to job market situation as we see it today.

    Back to illegal immigration.

    Any number of construction trades have been swamped with cheap illegal labor. This to the detriment of those here legally.

    They're not better. Cheaper because they'll work for less than industry rates. They'll work for less because they're here illegally.

    Does this, in your mind, qualify as the free market at work?

    Usually things like disability, age and extreme and/or generational poverties are to blame on some of the topics, as is bad luck. Other topics are purely political like the failure of our public education system, colleges and health care.
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past and that besides, they have already won
