For every illegal alien deadbeat, there's a middle class, hard-working US-born and raised stiff out there being penalized for being average, college-educated, normal, and decent!
You see, what most folks born after the advent of suburbia don't realize is that when sanity ruled this country (gleaned from watching any prime time American TV show from the 50's as well as most movies until around the mid-80's), people who were of whatever color in America who behaved in a decent, well-spoken manner, were considered "middle class", "bourgoisie" in the best sense of the term. People who typically were crude, loud, flashy in clothing, vulgar, bullying, ruthless scum were called by their rightful name, "LOW LIVES" , gangsters or criminals which is what they were and how they were correctly portrayed!!
Fast track nearly sixty years into the future, here we are in 2017 and those same flashy, crude, poorly-spoken to inarticulate, bullying, ruthless individuals are called instead "hedge fund manager", "high tech mogul", or "real estate tycoon".
As the world shifted, the decent became marginalized and the indecent rewarded, making the need among middle-class Americans today to fenagle and circumvent the existing rules that much more important.
