If the hundreds of thousands of Latino and African immigrants have no resumes how can they look for work and support themselves?

    There's no reason an immigrant wouldn't have a resume. But if you're talking about migrants they're not doing the kinds of jobs that require a CV. They generally get their manual labor gigs via word of mouth.

    Not all jobs require resumes!

    I was gainfully employed from age 14 until I retired and never submitted a resume except for 1 job

    Adapting means learning how to write a resume, how to research job openings, how to apply for jobs they qualify for, how to interview, etc. Of course, you are assuming the person has education, experience, skills, etc. to record on a resume. You are assuming they are basically employable in the US (or some other) job market.

    Saying they "have no resume" is certainly underestimating those immigrants. Their life before crossing the border was not a blank page, they had some training in this and that (in average more than those who stayed in their country) and some professional experiences (even if it's just having been a construction worker for a few years, it's still an experience and it still counts for an employer, compared to somebody who has no idea how it works).

    It's true that most of those Third-World immigrants have not been to university, but most Americans neither. And you wouldn't say that "Americans have no resume". Even when they don't have a degree they find other things to put in their resume, there's plenty you can put there.

    Get hired for jobs that do not require resumes. Take some courses during their free time to earn credentials. Then they will have something to put on their resumes.
