Since its now apparently legal to advertise an illegal product, in this case the labor of someone without the legal right to work in this country, does this mean I can start selling knock-off iPads across the street?

You line up a bunch of white or black men and they will arrest them all. The illegals just get a trip to the hospital for free medical care.

Are you sure this is about illegals? It looks to me to be about day laborers. They're not the same thing. Citizens need to work too, and people often need workers only for a day or two.

Citizens and legal non-citizens fill out job applications.

Not for short work assignments, Escape. It's a lot easier to pick up a job informally if you don't need a steady, and sad to say both sides evade taxes by doing so. I've done that and I am a lilly-white citizen.

I didn't realize all you need to do to get a job is fill out an application. So you just fill out an application and shazam! you instantly get a job?
