(In other words, the state makes up the difference in the underpayment of wages to illegals, thus setting up a system in which the state essentially pays for part of the cost of an illegal employer's workforce)

A) Helping the economy

5) If you think illegal immigration is helping our economy, how is it helping our economy? Please select one.
C) hard working, law abiding people

Low-cost labor benefits the economy. Because illegals provide the same amount of work as a US Citizen for less pay, their net productivity is higher. This is great for employers, but a bad situation for illegals.

7) What do you think would be the best way to help remedy illegal immigration?
D) Leaving the borders open, be more lenient with immigration

This is the closest.
Close the borders, amnesty, reform the legal immigration system to allow reasonable legal immigration based on employment (and tied to unemployment %) and not family connections.

B) It is still too high

Everyone should be documented legal immigrants. There should be no illegals.

A) It should be made simpler so that more people can get in faster

This is an ignorant question. The truth is that most illegal immigrants would normally be barred from legally immigrating to the United States as there is no path to citizenship for them if they do not have: 500K to invest in the US, a job that transfers them here, or a brother, adult child, or parent who is a US citizen or PR.
