We can't blame people for coming to our pastures of plenty if we dangle a carrot(job) in front of them.
Oh yes we can blame them. If one has morals and scruples they won't break laws. It isn't "we" who are dangling a carrot in front of them, it is the greedy employers. I don't want to be put in the same catagory as them.

If we but the goods that they produce we support them and their practices.

But "we" have no idea when and if employers employ illegals. It is up to them to determine the legality of their employees. What do you suggest? That we stop buying all U.S. goods just in case they "may have" had some illegal labor involved in them? Get real.

I might be an optimist but I think that could be easier then we think.

Actually I think for practical purposes it should be MANDATORY that all illegals be informed they are ENTITLED to the very same pay and conditions as Americans and legal residents. Perhaps then employers would have NO *&^% reason to employ them, as their labour would no longer be cheaper.

The more illegals demanding equal pay and conditions the better I say.
