Employers who hire illegals should have their business shut down, plain and simple. Any business in American that uses the excuse that they can't "afford" to hire Americans and pay a fair wage should not be in the business! The rest of us have to run our businesses in such a way as to fairly compensate workers, pay taxes and worker's comp . . . if a business can't be run and do that . . . then they DESERVE to be shut down.

As another poster said earlier . . . this is all about profit-taking by stock holders and corporate execs, who get more $$ out of the till b/c of lowered wages.

Shut the employers down . . . and send the illegals back home.

BTW - why is it illegals come here, knowing if they get caught they will get deported, and when it happens, they act like we should all feel bad about it - worry about them and their kids, etc. They knew full well when they came that they were sneaking in.

They come, they get caught - ***'s up. It was likely to happen. Why are they wringing their hands now?

I feel for anyone who is treated unfairly, but these people CHOSE to come here illegally. It is not like someone grabbed them up and forced them into slavery.

Yes , but interesting enough which I think is great - The more generation's we are here the smaller the family will be.
I feel to many people equal destroyed planet .

Some countries you could say it's a small army of kid's after being here several generation's it drop's to average which I think might be 1 to 2 kid's.

Ofcourse few generation's is long time and recent immigrant's still subscribe to lot's kids not all ofcourse but enough .

I agree same employer who HIRED them now get's his stay out of jail free card after he had them as worker's who knows how long.

That's my problem with these raid's the employer's walk away .
They truly have burnt the candle at both ends.
