North Carolina would be in contradiction to that. What is it about that state that brings more illegals?

The fact that people there will hire them. Isn't that kind of obvious?

This is really interesting. They seem to be "skipping over" certain states such as South Carolina, Arkansas-Mississsippi-Alabama,. Kentucky, and West Virginia.

Anyone have any perspective on why that is? I live in North Carolina, right on the South Carolina border. Why are so many here and so few in South Carolina? Is it because of laws on obtaining licenses and Social Services, E-verify, or what?

Mind blowing. I think that looking at the question with any sort of depth at all would show that the actual question is......Get ready...... Why will they hire them more there than other places? North Carlolina doesn't have the major population centers of other states with big draws, like New York or Texas, and has more illegals than bigger local states such as Georgia. Do you have any more words of wisdom on that for us?

Yes. Stop acting as if illegal immigrants are the only ones responsible for this problem. There are no illegal immigrants holding guns to people's faces demanding that they be hired.

One of North Carolina's biggest industries is tobacco farming. The population boom in NC has also lead to them being hired for construction.There's your answer.

It's annoying how often this board goes after the "prostitute" and never the "John."

We would gladly attack the ďjohnsĒ if we could identify them. Unlike illegals, they donít flaunt their illegal activity. Illegal employers arenít marching in our streets, or staging sit-ins outside the offices of members of Congress.

If you know the identities of illegal employers, please share. I have made this request more than once on this forum, but have yet to get a response. Itís kind of hard to attack an obscure target.

Are you new to this forum? You must be to make such a claim. We have blamed the employers along with our government and the illegals themselves over and over in here.
