Opinion "Are Illegal Aliens Damaging to the United States? Yes"

Description

This article is one of two opinions nestled under the headline, "Are Illegal Aliens Damaging to the United States?" Graeber presents the yes opinion of that question. He makes the argument that 8.2 million "illegal aliens" residing in the United States take 1-3 million jobs, send money out of the country, and do not pay taxes. In addition, he claims that they take $13 billion a year from welfare. Graeber says that border patrol should "be given the right to search cars within 100 miles of the border without a warrant" in order to enforce the battle-cry of "Get Back Wet-back!"
