Ok, I'm sure the title got most of your attentions but lets look at just basic statistics. I created a new forum, simply to discuss unemployment due to illegals alone.

Currently there are 12-20M illegal aliens in the USA...
Currently there are about 10M people on unemployment..(I looked, couldnt find the "actual" number again)

This would mean that there will be 2M jobs that are open, not filled. Imagine the ramifications in having 2M jobs open, vs 10M people unemployed.

1) Companies would be forced to pay more, to get better qualified employees
2) Companies would be forced to offer better benefits, including medical insurance, to get better qualified employees
3) No need for unemployment tax
4) No need for welfare
5) No need for medical insurance by the government
6) Lower taxes for ALL
7) Extra money could be put towards the deficit
8) Companies would be less able to "blackmail" cities into tax benefits to relocate

Note, this posting does NOT blame illegals for our problems, its not my intent for this posting, but just imagine if our government, forced people to follow our laws, how many governmental programs we wouldnt NEED.. It also helps to point out why the government isnt throwing the illegals out.. doing so would remove a lot of the "need" for welfare programs.. (both citizens and company welfare programs)

That is why anyone who knows economics 101 knows that the government and people who love the illegal criminals lie about the economy when it comes to the illegals and jobs.

Moderator cut: personal insult however many illegals we have in the US, not all of them are actually here holding down a real JOB. In fact, more of them are collecting from social services than are working in agriculture.

The number of unemployed persons (7.2 million)

Looks like we have an abundance of unemployed to take any job opened up by any illegal deported. With the extra resources that would no longer be spend on the resource sucking illegal immigrants more can be spent on schools, roads, seniors and any number of projects that would also open more jobs for more Americans.

snip - thanks for agreeing with my posting, i.e.

Less funds coming from social services, i.e. lower taxes for people paying taxes..
