"This is how I know people's immigration sentiments are just pure x*nophobia - you actually have no clue how difficult it is to be a foreigner here. even when you’re a citizen you can’t get a job because you don’t count towards BBBEE Slightly"
"Most jobs in this country require you to be a South African citizen that's why I get so annoyed when people act like foreigners get all the jobs it's not true peace"
"You live in a different society & class...it is pretty obvious that the middle/upper class have no problem of illegal foreign infiltration or WE would know about it...Whereas the poor class have to deal with this problem every day because they are the gateway into South Africa"
"You confusing professional jobs and jobs in security, cashiers, waiters, truck driving, taxi driving, cleaners, plumbing and so on and so forth..."
"Get your priorities and agenda right, y'all are just confused. Y'all want all foreigners out of your country. All foreigners are responsible for all your problems. One even said that foreigners drank all the water that's why there's no water for SAns."
"They are here illegally what makes you think they use "legal recruitment agencies" your statement seems incomplete. High influx of undocumented national = High unemployment rate."
