Not from OUR prospective. Of course. But you're an, let's admit it, highly uneducated and desperate individual from some tiny village in Central America who has heard this rumor that it's not only OK, but it's better for your kid to send them. Apples and oranges.

The busses will roll right in.

Prosecute, fine, arrest people/businesses who employ illegals.
They will stop coming.
Amen. And that won't happen because we are addicted to cheap labor. Texans are addicted to the cheap labor, they just don't want to pay for everything that comes with it.

The "we" you are referring to are not the majority in this country. Most Americans do not hire illegal aliens.

Yeah right
Well then they wouldn't have to worry about being fined.
But if you think this isn't common practice you are dilusional.

Dilusional? Do you actually think that the majority of "regular" Americans hire illegal aliens?

These people are lousy parents. Plain and simple.

Texas, for the most part. I'm not sure where you're from, but if it's an area without a lot of illegal immigration then you haven't experienced it...yet. Huge home builders (million plus cost) here (for example) use illegal labor to keep cost down and make a bigger profit.

And the home builders in Texas solely support Repubs without reservation. Perry Homes (no relation to Rick) is one of the biggest Repub donors for the REpub Party of Texas. This helps to explain the two-facedness of Texas Repubs with the illegal immigration issue.

I was referring to "regular" law abiding Americans not greedy businesses who hire them. The majority of the former do not hire illegal aliens. Yes, I am in the thick of it in So. Calif.

You're in So. Calif? Oh trust me, your neighbors (regular folks), if they have a service mowing or have help in the house, are likely hiring illegal aliens. You must know that. And yes, you are in the thick of it, as we are here.
