I have noticed a disturbing similarity between Hispanic illegal migrant workers the new African slaves. They're both used in agriculture and "domestic" (cleaning, serving, caregiving etc) industries by the wealthy classes for cheap labor to maximize profit, largely in the US South. Both groups are denied basic human rights, legal protections, and economic compensation, and these are often ignored by politicians who are in the pockets of the wealthy interests. Many live on the worksite in sub-optimal conditions.
Of course there are some differences too. For Hispanics this is often voluntary and they often cross the border to seek out these economic opportunities for their financial benefit, but are still being exploited and an ethnic underclass has been created based on cheap agricultural and domestic labor.
Never let facts get in the way of a good narrative.
