Here's another aspect of the illegal immigration issue that's not discussed very often. I just listened to Jerome Horton, of the California State Board of Equalization who discussed SLAVERY in California. This is an illegal alien issue which is overlooked by the pro-illegal side in favor of painting all illegals as "seeking jobs and a better way of life".

Jerome Horton made the case that he investigated a business that had only 17 employees on their books but 70 employees in their factory. He said that those employees represented part of 50 billion in lost tax revenue to the state and he was going to make sure that with the passing of his resolution they would be paying their share of taxes.

What that means to me is amnesty, because these people are part of the unseen underground who need to be "brought out of the shadows" that our elected officials always talk about. It's SLAVERY nothing more or less. And who are the ringleaders, they come from China, Russia, and Spanish speaking countries south of the border (Mexico, Guatemala, etc.). These are FOREIGN born slave masters and traffickers. These aren't AMERICANS who are trafficking humans or organizing slave work rings. How do I know where they come from, because on the website of the state board of equalization there is a pdf news release which says they will have a helpline people can call with translators in those languages. The slave ring leaders are new immigrants here who most definitely are not aware of the US's history of slavery or the laws in this country which are against slavery.

Anyone who is found to be running a slave ring should be deported to their country of origin. The slaves are here most definitely illegally in the USA.

This dimension is one more issue to cause our government to act on behalf of the American people to make certain that illegal immigration is eradicated by closing the border, and returning all illegals and offspring of illegals, human traffickers and slave ringleaders to their nations of origin.

Many illegals are semi-slaves. In some ways they have it worse than slaves because back when people bought a slave, the slave would have been an investment and the owner had to feed and house him.

Illegals work out better because you just pay them very little, let them find their own housing which can be under the bushes, some cardboard box, an illegal worker center, sleeping on the floor with 14 other men in a dive apartment.

However most don't have it too bad because they can easily access the welfare system, shack up with a woman having children - their own or otherwise and they get free room and board, food stamps and everything else.

A fairly large number of illegals never work at all. If they time it right, they give birth very soon after arriving and will never have to work the rest of their lives and in those cases, the American people are made their slaves.

Absolutely! People who think they are so kind hearted to support the poor illegals are in actuality doing a disservice to those who are used as "slaves" as well as to the U.S. citizens and legal immigrants who are forced to financially support this illegal and immoral activity.

Horton said in his interview that the ones classified as slaves do not earn a dime, they only work for their food and board. They are working for free and the money they earn for the company goes to "pay off" their debt to the trafficker for bringing them into the USA.

The only difference between who we consider the "traditional" illegal and someone here as a slave is the illegal walks our streets, the slave does not. They're both illegally in the USA.
