Our immigration exploitation scheme

One thing that upsets me about the U.S. is how we justify having a several tiered economy based on immigration status with hopes of a better future. I mean, sure, it's great, but it doesn't change the fact that having people who are immigrants occupying the bottom jobs makes it that much easier for people who are native born to occupy the higher ones. Immigration doesn't take jobs away from people--quite the opposite, it allows people who are native born to get better ones.

It's really convenient...get people who come from poor places to work here for less than native born people would be willing to work for, give them less respect than native born people would demand,  with the hope of a higher standard of living for them and potentially a much higher standard of living for their descendants.
