Also, as a person, what could I be prejudice against them about? If I got a problem with them being in the welfare office then you better believe I'm going to speak my issues with that to some government official. So, I don't even see being prejudice as logical.
I don't see it about race at all. A lot of illegals come here illegally because it's very easy to do and the financial rewards are pretty good.

Same with the employers. Why bother hiring some American or legal immigrant or bring in a legal H2A visa worker when it's so much easier to just bring in illegals and pay them low. It's very easy to do and the financial rewards are great.

The illegals here living off food stamps and welfare handouts are the ones that strongly demand citizenship - but a lot of working illegals really don't. Many when they were first packing up their backpacks to come here planned to return home and going home is still in the back of their minds in many cases.

A lot of illegals actually are a little homesick. Going home isn't really all that horrendous to them, they speak the language, they fit in, they can obviously re-adapt. Many are just informal guest workers who will stay as long as it's very easy to stay but if they have to return home, they can.

The thing that bothers me most about this is that these illegals have no regard for the innocent people they steal identities from. Then they go and demand the right to steal more identities and hurt more innocent Americans. Yet the liberals think this is all okay. These people didn't even show remorse for stealing someone else's identity.

If they had fake IDs and even if they put them through E-verify they wouldn't show as "fake". Therefore the employer can claim he hired them "unknowingly". I do, however, wonder about the REST of the illegals working there without fake IDs and what will happen to the employer because of that!

Maybe the employer should be responsible for fixing the problems with the IRS the people whose identity was stolen will have when they file their taxes next year?
