Well...for one thing I would never sneak into another country or overstay a visa. It would bother my conscience to do such a thing. If there was another country that I wanted to live in (which I don't want to do any such thing), I would apply to move there legally and jump through all the necessary hoops.

Illegals have to commit crimes to survive here. Their first crime was to come here illegally. Once here, they have to either commit ID theft, or use a fake SSN or get paid under the table. So, yes, they are criminals. My heart goes out to those who had their IDs stolen or discovered that someone is using their SSN but using another name with it. My heart also goes out to those who lost loved ones at the hands of illegal aliens.

Yeah, I’m guessing you really have no clue how the actual ID market works....it is far less nefarious than what your narrative suggests.

So many native-born Puerto Ricans have been victims of ID theft that the PR government declared all PR issued birth certificates null and void. If a native-born Puerto Rican needed a copy of his/her birth certificates now s/he has to jump through hoops to get one.

There are people who have discovered that several illegal aliens were using their SSNs.

If that isn't "nefarious", then what is?

craigiri Andy of Mayberry was a fictional show. What they forgot to show you is how much they used the N word and how they kept "those people" from even using the same public facilities as others.
Last time I looked this wasn't at all about race, it is in fact about people breaking our laws....illegals.

What are they supposed to learn? How to wash dishes? I worked as a dishwasher when I was 18 and I can assure you that I would have learned to wash dishes without that $1.52 cents per hour.
well, then you lost out, unfortunately. I worked ever since I was 13 years old. Started in a Bakery, and what I learned is, there are different rules in different houses to be respected. I learned how to work with people as a team, learned how hard my mother worked 3 jobs to keep food on the table, and pay the bills. I learned how to manage money, how to be polite, as my 2nd job was waitress work at 15 years old.
I'm so sorry you were or are unable to know that concept.

The reason these "illegals" are doing jobs is that the BossMan - the AMERICAN business people - want them to. They don't want their own kids or peers to do the job.
yupper, your right, the American businessman learned that Greed and paying illegals, makes him more money...which is why they should hold anyone accountable that hires them. I waitressed, and I saw how the owers of restaurants, pay illegals at the end of their shift or the end of the week.

Who am I to tell a business owner what to do? Should I also stop at every construction site and inspect the work and the workers? I mind my own business.
Yes, Of course you do....
