I would like to clarify, I didn't use the term minority to represent the illegal aliens. I meant a voting minority, in this case I would think that the Business owners who hire illegal aliens would be a voting minority against the proposition.

So, since most of the people don't benefit form it, vote for it. The ones who do, vote against it. The problem with democracy is that it can pass law that benefit a majority but unfairly disadvantage another law. It's the check from the judicial power who keeps those laws form staying in the book.

This judge acted not only on benefit of the illegal aliens, but also on the business owners' interest.

There really is no difference, because the business owners employ cheap illegal labor.
