Go back 50 years and you would be hard pressed to find an American that thinks an illegal alien deserves free education or social security.
Attitude do change over the years. 1920's where pretty conservative, 1930's with the depression things got more liberal, 1950's McCarthyism was back to conservative, Late 1960's free love era was liberal.
It goes back and forth.
