No, it's not essentially treason.

Amen to that!

It's not a problem if illegal immigrant are looking for jobs, it's a problem when businesses hire them ABOVE LEGAL AND US CITIZENS. Getting mad at the illegal immigrants is like blaming the other woman for your husband cheating on you. It's your husband's responsibility to not be led astray, no?
Yes it is. Illegals know it is illegal. They are not innocent, just as the other woman is not innocent. I mean look at all of Tiger's mistresses!

And, they do a day's work.

In spite of the activist communities claims that they are all abused with low wages - Get out into the world and you will find out that many of them make very good wages - The small businesses that do use them pay many of them well in order to keep them. This is why they can send money home and drive pretty nice cars here. Many of them now have their families here.

I do not support amnesty, nor even hiring of illegal workers - But, I do know businesses that they work for, and I know a good number of them personally. They've been around for years.

They are hired because they are reliable.
Ok, so obvious, isn't it?? why is it that so many people can't get it ....

The only thing that is relevant is that they are here illegally and have no right to work here or to live here.

I don't know. I suspect what you "know" is more heresay than fact. Why don't you follow one to work and as for a job yourself?

how do you know they are employed, or all have jobs? how do you know they are illegal?

this is a major jump to conlcusions. a fail in logic.

If the bolded section is true, why are illegals receiving billions in pre/postnatal care, welfare, WIC, and subsidized housing; and why are so many of their children enrolled in the “free” school breakfast/lunch program?

No, I live in the center of it here in my town seriously. I can see it everyday. I look out my window and there it is. My area is about 75% illegal immigrants. The way it is here in this area of D.C.

Note how 'getout' phrased her rhetorical question.

She is quite anti illegal immigration.
