Newsmax.com - More Than 6 Million Illegals Hold Jobs (http://www.newsmax.com/insidecover/illegal_aliens_jobs/2009/02/18/183149.html - broken link)

Americans have been janitors, landscapers, fast food workers, farm hands,
hospitality industry workers, cunstruction workers...
long... long before illegals came!

And these are not the only jobs they steal... fake and stolen documents are
getting them many other types of jobs as well!

I have been told, (I am not THAT old *L*) that then president Eisenhower went to work after the second world war, to round up and ship all of the illegal aliens back where they came from to open up jobs for the men returning from the war.
If it could be done then why not now?
I can hear all of the "Be politically correct" people out there, " We can't do that because we might violate their rights!"
What about the rights of the work a day world LEGAL citizens in this country that are trying to get by?

If we have an estimated 6-7 million illegal aliens working in this country, and we have an estimated 20 million illegals living in this country, how are the remaining 13-14 million illegals surviving? They canít all be children.

Furthermore, as you opined, we have more than enough U.S. citizens to fill those positions. Itís time to hit the employers HARD, and stop the freebies. Itís time for illegal aliens to leave permanently.

Not to mention that many illegals do not work full time jobs that provide health insurance and other benefits.

Many work "now and then", they work seasonal jobs and are idle for months at a time. Many work part time as they can find work. They live with USA born children's food stamps, WIC, free housing and many other government handouts.

"They live"
Not,
"I bet they live"
or
"I'm sure they live"
or
"I'm guessing they live"
or
"My theory is they live"


How do you keep track of all those millions of illegals?

Case in point, the meat packing industry. A job that payed Americans 20+ dollars an hour, now employs illegals for a fraction of that.

If they are all working how are they paying taxes unless it's a stolen SS number. If they aren't working then how are they getting by? Social Services I'll wager.

I seriously doubt many Illegal Aliens have a tax id to work and are paying their share of taxes. Under the table? Maybe but then it's untaxed and a large amount goes out of the Country via remittances.

One way to start tog et rid of the ILLEGALS would be to go from business to business and check all employees.
I can hear the ACLU already," That would violate the rights of the illegals"
Well I mean "HELLO???" If the ACLU knows them to be illegal why not give the names to the INS so that we can ship them where they came from?
I know that initially the cost to check every employee would be prohibitive but I know the end result would be less money paid to support ILLEGALS>
I type ILLEGAL in all caps because i do not believe that the government knows the meaning of the word!! ARE YOU LISTENING PELOSI????????

Pelosi? Ah no.. She's busy HIRING the illegals to work in her vineyard in Napa and talking about how the Immigration raids "tear families apart", when in reality, it makes her have to have her staffer go down to the Home Depot and pick up some more..

Yep.. bussing tables at restaurants, fast food, etc.. used to be the jobs that struggling college students, high school students looking for P/T summer and after school jobs, Senior Citizens, and Americans who fell on hard times could work as a backup.. Now, the illegals have successfully taken over those fields..
