You can make the case that illegal workers aren't subject to our laws because of their very status- they aren't citizens of legal residents. The most the US government can - and should- do is deport them. American EMPLOYERS on the other hand, ARE subject to American laws and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. As someone pointed out, how can we expect people who come here to follow the rules (getting a visa, etc.) when our very own citizens don't???

I blame the government and emloyers for the mess we are in. I would never blame someone that does not have a right to be here, there just doing what our government tells them. Till we get someone in our government that cares about us and not there pocket book then nothing will change.

Yes. Many employers know full well they're hiring illegals. They even send recruiters down into Mexico to entice them -- notice you don't see illegals going door-to-door looking for jobs after they get out of the semi-trailer, they already have a job.

But then there are the illegals who are committing felony document fraud, obtaining stolen social security numbers, and purchased green cards issued to someone else. The employer may actually check the green card but how can he know that the name on the green card is not the person who has it in his possession?

I read they may have the green card holders reapply -- this is a very important move because there has been great amounts of fraud going on in with the green cards. Illegals around here actually sell their green cards for cash, report them stolen or lost and get their replacement in a week or so. There are some who have sold their green card a number of times.

Simple, White people put money above their race. They put money above their own comrades, women, and children. The put money above the quality of life in their own country. That's why they hire illegals instead of Americans.

Easy there; you are stereotyping as well.

I am quite sure that some the above traitors are of Chinese heritage, Indian background (both 'Hispanic' as well as East Indian, etc) in addition to being 'White'.

Ah - you are aware that many of those here illegally are hired by Hispanics, Blacks, Asian etc - not merely whites

Your post was purely racist and inappropriate
