I just had to post this for those in here that keep claiming that we anti-illegals only blame the illegal workers and not the greedy employers. Of course they want to absolve the illegals of any wrongdoing and only blame the employers. So it is kind of hypocritical, isn't it? Both the employers and the illegals are to blame and we all know that.

"On Tuesday, Rasmussen Reports released the results of a recent poll showing that an overwhelming majority of American voters want tough sanctions imposed on businesses which hire illegal aliens".

"The national telephone survey found that 75 percent of ‘likely U.S. voters’ favor strict government sanctions against those who hire illegal aliens, while just 16 percent oppose such sanctions (The telephone survey of 1,000 likely U.S. voters was conducted between July 14-15, 2011 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.)"

If only 3/4th's of this country approves of that, that's the saddest part of this story.

It looked like 7% didn't vote, and as we all know, if you don't vote-you don't count. So actually 80+% voted against the 'enablers'.

Oh how quickly would the illegal immigrant problem be solved if states had the resolve to punish employers. But no, the states only want to pursue illegal immigrant workers without antagonizing their campaign contributors. Sometimes I think the states are going through the stepped-up enforcement path knowing that there's a chance it'll be struck down but they would do that for voter street cred without actually punishing their handlers

That's not how polls work.

Now this is an excellent quote from the article:

The more illegals you deport the more open jobs there will be!!

Or
If we punish employers who are violating employment laws there will be a reduced demand for illegals. Why reward criminal behavior?

Why do you guys constantly equate a lack of punishment with reward?

There should be mandatory jail time for second offenses. If there were no jobs for them, would they be here?
