E-verify won't make the entire underground economy disappear. No one is claiming that. However, it would put a huge dent in it if the 8 million no-match SSNs were taken out of the work force. There is no way that the underground economy could employ that many people.

^Agreed.

What Bob doesn't realize is that back in 1986, the internet wasn't around so the only way people could let their reps and senators know that they were against amnesty would be to write a personal letter or call Capitol Hill.

These days, it's easier to get the word out and easier to send "action alerts" to your rep and senators via groups like Numbersusa and CAPS. When GW Bush proposed amnesty, people crashed the phone lines and fax machines at the Capitol.

No doubt that's why amnesty has yet to pass. People have easier ways now to let their politicians know their displeasure. Of course the lamestream media will never report that this is happening. Instead, they try hard to convince people that most Americans want amnesty. If that were the truth, it would have happened a long time ago.

Amnesty will take longer as protesting is easier now, but the reality is, pre and post 21st century amnesty, 11 million will be here and working. Right now, they pay no Federal Income Tax.

Agreed tho some people are still in "dream land" where amnesty ain't happening but think it will happen.

Yeah really. Remember when American teens developed a work ethic by mowing lawns and flipping burgers? I miss those days.

They still have it but unfortunately illegal aliens have taken those jobs and they can't compete. Here in the southwest one must know Spanish to get many of these entry level jobs.

I wouldn't bet on it. Things will be changing. Most employers won't take a chance and hire under the table without going thru e-verify. The risks and fines would be too great. There will be checks and balances in place.

Note that the claim was made that "I'm just being a realist"? That's what many of these pro-illegals say when in fact amnesty is what they actually want personally for whatever their agenda is. It's a copout to avoid admitting the truth about their stance and the real reasons for it.
