Lazy Americans, always looking for a handout.
And, she had a Master’s. But, according to pro-illegals, we think we’re too good.

What's funny is none of you guys hold these businesses accountable. Ask yourselves why states don't mandate that all companies use E-verify. Anyone can show up with someone else's sold or stolen documents and the companies look the other way as long as they can claim they are hiring a legal employee. Do you really think these companies are stupid? You don't think they know half their employees are illegals?

Unlike you guys, I actually do oppose illegal immigration. I'm not a closet racist who uses the illegal line to discriminate against Hispanics and it's culture. I equally criticize both the illegals and the American companies who hire them. And I don't waste time discriminating against two American citizens speaking Spanish among themselves even if it as at work since that has nothing to do with immigration.

How else do I hold the businesses accountable besides:

1.) Not patronizing them until they correct the situation
2.) Reporting the situation to the authorities
3.) Encouraging others to not patronize the business until they correct the situation

I've never agreed with the philosophy that "illegals are doing the jobs that American's won't do." I flat out rejected that theory before the recession started, and I flat out reject it now. It's a matter of opportunity: If the options are harvesting tomatos in a hot Florida field, or driving a forklift in a climate-controlled warehouse, then of course the American individual will take the forklift position. But when push comes to shove, I am 100% confident that most blue collar American's are willing to do farm and field work. It's a matter of opportunity, not blue collar elitism.

"You guys"? Just who are you referring to? We have countless times complained about the employers and are advocates for e-verify. Try reading the posts in here before your make accusations or assumptions about "us guys".

Good that you aren't a closet racist but neither are most of us in this forum either so why even bring that up? Who is discriminating against law abiding and assimilated Hispanics?

The thing is that most illegals aren't doing farm work anyway. They are holding other blue collar jobs that Americans have always done. The farmers have at their disposal unlimited visas for legal immigrant crop pickers so there is not excuse for them to be hiring illegals except for pure greed.

It is mostly the Dems that are welcoming the third world. Most oppose anything that deters illegal aliens from coming here or remaining here. They want the Hispanic vote and the future Hispanic vote through amnesty.
