Its interesting how your comments fluctuate between being somewhat rational, when few pro-illegals are posting; and total off-the-charts illegal alien gloating, when you notice the presence of your cohorts.

What is your source? They are getting the same where I live because you do not know their status nor does the employer.

Oh, you know of illegals working in your area? How do you know what they are being paid? More importantly, how do you know the employer doesn't know they are illegal? Are you assisting them? Are you employing them?

Source? Employers aren't exactly advertising their employment and exploitation of illegals; as you well know. However, you are free to research. The exploitation of illegal aliens is well documented. Google.

Thank you! Furthermore, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that employers hire illegal aliens because they can pay them less. Otherwise, they would simply hire a legal citizen and not have to worry about being raided by ICE.

Where you live the min wage is ten bucks an hour? That is a pretty good chunk of change for min wage.

$10 is far higher than the $6.55 federal minimum wage, even higher than San Francisco ($9.36) which I believe has the most generous minimum wage of any city and you're saying illegals are getting more this in your small town. Well this just lends support to the fact that illegals are indeed working jobs Americans will work since many Americans are getting paid far les than this.

I would have killed for a job like that while going through College.

Are you even from San Diego?

Even the bad neighborhoods are nothing like LA.
No kidding. I used to live in San Diego, and to call it a hellhole is a real stretch--even for some here. Agree that it's one of the nicer big cities in the country.

But maybe it is a total cesspool for those who would seem to better enjoy living in a barb-wire enclosed compound in N. Idaho waiting for the apocalypse.
