Those ten families are in poverty because firstly their politicians
are corrupt or oppressive and it is the populations' responsibilities
to fix that, not ours; and secondly they produce far more offspring 
than they can afford and it is their own responsiblity to change
that behavior (which often is the result of vanity and racism anyway).
In short, they screw up and it is their fault and their problem.
It is unethical to let them make their problem ours by giving them our jobs.

I've known irresponsible people, but that doesn't mean I support
their irresponsible behavior.
