Mach50 I don't dispute the film or your post, other than I refuse to give illegals a free pass or an excuse. I don't give criminal behavior a free pass.
In other words these illegals are not victims but willing partners.
As many including myself have said, we need to hammer the employers. All employers who knowingly hire illegals. 100% including Joe cheapskate who is too cheap to hire a licensed contractor.
Great post and thank you for putting up some evidence of just how low corporate America and our elected reps really are.

Generally speaking I thought the film was very informative, but one-sided. My inner libertarian spent most of the film whispering, "This is a bunch of B.S., these people are all choosing to do XYZ, not being 'forced by the big bad companies...' "
And you summed it up about as well as it could be done.
In reality it is a willing partnership.
Big business is using the cover of elected reps to bend twist and even break the law.
Illegals are not being forced into this life, they are willing partners.
The voter is too lazy or too dim to looker deeper than the campaign B.S and so are in effect acting as silent partners by re-electing the same old politicians.
Anyone who knows about a company using illegal labor and doesn't report just became a partner.
Its not just about the illegals taking our jobs. Its about doing nothing about all the above.
