If they are so intent on catering to a foreigners, then nothing is stopping them from relocating their businesses to those countries of these foreigners.

It's just like those who insist they must hire only illegals and whine when their employees are deported. Absolutely nothing forces these employers to stay in the USA themselves, they're free to take their businesses elsewhere.

What good are any of these businesses if they won't cater to the American people or provide jobs to Americans?

I'm quite sure people are capable of producing legal commerce. These businesses will weed themselves if LE doesn't do it for them first.

I don't mind businesses that cater to foreigners as long as everything is legal and above board. For example in my suburb of Dallas we have a lot of businesses that cater to the Indian, Middle Eastern, Chinese, Vietnamese, and east African communities here. (My suburb is very diverse.) I like these businesses and I think they add to the quality of life here. But immigrants from the countries these businesses cater to tend to be overwhelmingly legal, not illegal. I also do not encounter hostility when I patronize these businesses, particularly the Middle Eastern ones (they are very friendly). The Latino businesses are the opposite...around here they are often shady, suspicious, and hostile to outsiders.

I'm sure there were plenty of slaveowners back in the day who bemoaned the loss of their slaves. Building a business upon illegal or inhumane practices has risks.

So now businesses should run rap sheets on Americans to see which ones are "legal"?

Absolutely. A birth certificate should be required at the door. Better yet, get birth certificates that can be scanned like a debit card, and have a reader at the door. If it doesn't scan, you can't get in. Not even to the bathroom. Of course, this doesn't apply to those who were born here, but shouldn't be here because their parents were here illegally. To make thinkers simpler, when one goes shopping, they should have to do it with at least 3 generations of their family, so everybody can scan their birth certificates in order to gain entry.

Isn't that alot like saying "as drug use drops, pushers worry about their income"? If you cater to criminals, you should see business drop as criminal activity drops off.

What does a birth certificate prove, does it have your photo on it...?

If we traded birth certificates, how would anyone know that we did?

You seem to have a lot of fun "Playing" what if... you cant get any more simplistic.

If the store owners that cater to illegals whine load enough, some 'give them amnesty' liberal politician or some federal agency will come up with some kind of 'we need these stores in the food desert' to keep them open money. And it won't be a loan, it will be a grant.
