Denver Public Schools would not suffer a 67% dropout/flunk rate because of thousands of illegal alien students speaking 41 different languages. At least 200,000 vehicles would vanish from our gridlocked cities in Colorado. Denver's 4% unemployment rate would vanish as our working poor would gain jobs at a living wage.

In Florida, 1.5 million illegals would return the Sunshine State back to America, the rule of law, and English.
There are a lot more within the article but the above are a few mentioned.

Doesn't matter to me what color someone's skin is, as long as our jobs are going to Americans. Or, at the very least, going to people who have the proper authorization to work.

I know what you mean believe me. But my problem is when you really cannot understand a thing the person behind the counter is saying,

I am one hate to have to have someone repeat something back. But believe me there are times i truly can't understand what is being saidto me.

The illegal aliens would not be here unless there is an economic need and unmet employment shortage of those type of workers. The legal immigrants and unskilled white and black workers would not fill the need for the nasty dirty jobs that the illegal aliens are doing now.

I hate the fact that the illegals are in this country but understand why they are here and the economic and workforce challenges the country would face if they left.

You couldn't be more wrong. We have no employee shortage and there is no economic need for them other than the greedy employers who just want cheap, illegal labor to exploit for more profit. Please tell me what nasty dirty jobs that Americans and legal immigrants won't do. Please don't mention crop picking as only 3% of illegal immigrants are doing that and there are unlimited visas for legal foreingers for ag workers.

We might have a short, temporary setback if they all left but as in any place of business where raids have been conducted Americans lined up for those jobs. Illegal immigrants are costing us billions in tax dollars. It would be a boon to our tax coffers if they left. These greedy employers are passing their social costs on to us just for starters. What taxes these illegal immigrants pay into the system doesn't begin to cover their social costs. Please study up on this issue for the truth.

I eat often at the OLD COUNTRY BUFFET and notice that the staff doing the dirty jobs is mostly immigrants. There is very little turnover of staff, the people stay forever. I "suspect" that a number of them are illegal aliens who stick around because they don't want the hassle of applying for another job with fake documents as more and more employers use E- Verify for NEW hires.

The managers love these dedicated illegal alien employees, with their low turnover. If they hired only legal workers for the dirty jobs they would see constant turnover.

First off working in restaurants is a job that Americans have always done. Second, why do you suspect that these workers are illegal immigrants? Third, how do you know that this employer or any other employer has a high turnover if he hires citizens or legal immigrants? Illegal immigrants are no more dedicated than anyone else. It may appear that way simply because they are afraid of being caught and deported.

Why would you think it is ok the come to this country illegally and then work with fake or stolen documents? You do know that the latter is a felony, don't you? Employers have no right to hire illegal immigrants and illegal immigrants have no right to work in this country. It's against the law!
