I was being sarcastic as many pro-illegals say none of that exists. I know it does, just as you do.

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.


So according to you Americans are all just lazy good for nothings and criminal illegals are great .

Will see how you feel if amnesty is passed and you and yours are living in a third world hellhole .

Did you see them in or streets waving their foreign flags and making demands ?

Where were 'we the people '? We are being invaded and doing nothing about it, we keep electing the same ones ovwer and over who get rich and powerful off these criminals , plus they bring in more legally everyday .

We are committing suicide by complacency .

Don't you know you can simply tell that people are illegal from looking at them? You can also get accurate demographic data by simply driving around and looking out your window...

Dude... it's common sense. If suddenly there's a flood of Mexicans in your area, of course you'd assume they are illegal, things don't happen that fast legally. And many don't even speak English or very little. Is the latter the sign of a legal United States citizen? No.

So you can automatically tell legal immigrants from illegal immigrants? Actually, they do happen that fast legally. The Bay area changed from about 10% Asian to about 40% Asian in less than 10 years...from legal immigration. Look at Orange County, CA...Hell my town went from about 6% Black in 1980 to about 20% in 1990...things can happen VERY quickly (if you are middle class or upper middle class). Language proficiency isn't telling of legal status.

Actually; proficiency of English is a good indicator that a family is here legally. Most legal immigrants from non English speaking nations already have some command of our language.
