why is United States always talk about illegal immigrants a better living but never talk about poor Americans a better living?

We have poor Americans on the street that need somewhere to sleep and food to eat and United States won't help them, but United States rush to shelter and feed the illegal immigrants while waiting for asylum.

    I have stated dozens , even scores of times , I would have no objection to suspending 99% of immigration until every American has a job and a home .

    Additionally , if the 20 - 30 million illegals here now were deported , imagine how much affordable housing would be freed up .

    I'd guess as many as a million , maybe even 2 million units .

    Immigrants are being used as a wedge issue by both sides. It is not a matter of focus=priority. It is a matter of focus allowing for parties to rally their bases. Helping poor American won't do that, unfortunately. Abortion is another one of those wedge issues. On a day to day basis, most American's don't really care all that much about the issue, but ideologically they do, so the parties use that in talking points so donors write checks, and riled up people join rallies.

    They can't have slaves anymore so they found that they can save money paying slave wages to illegals. It's cheaper than paying minimum wage to real Americans.

    That's the lop-sided rhetoric of the liberal Democrats for you. Poor Americans are not all dumb enough to vote Democrat, so there's no interest in buying your vote. They feel they can buy votes from illegal aliens if they give them enough free stuff paid for by tax payers.

    The people seeking asylum are being rounded up in put in camps. We are one step away from the gas chambers.

    If the government helps poor Americans living in the street, wouldn’t some people say it’s socialism?
