These companies are not going to pay anybody just starting out $10.50 to $12 a hr the Mexicans were paid like $5 to $7 a hr.

Well, just ask Marie Antoinette about the alternative.

Welfare - in whatever forms - provides social stability so that businesses can thrive and folks like YOURSELF can live a decent life free from a very real threat to their lives that would be a reality otherwise.
It's a price you pay for the opportunity to live in a place that's not dog eat dog 24/7.

If you expect to have that without paying a price then YOU are the "moocher".

Thank you for this. I donít know why so many people are so willfully stubborn & refuse to understand these concepts. Sit down, clear your head, THINK instead of just a typical knee jerk response or reaction.

Can you imagine the manufactured outrage if a legal resident was rejected because the employer suspected the person was illegal??!!



Just build The Wall.
No wall is high enough. No patrols deep enough so long as US businesses and households continue to employ undocumented people with no serious consequences.

There is no perfect solution. EVerify takes seconds to execute and is substantially accurate.
There is an appeal process for those who care to challenge the database, no diff than if an employerís background check produced a false positive.

Doesn't sound "debunked" to me. Sounds like few Americans want those kinds of jobs.
Probably why the plant hired illegal aliens last time. It was probably either that, or not have enough workers to keep the plant open - in which case EVERYONE there (including AMERICANS) would lose their jobs.

Ken
LOL donít try to explain it to them. Letís see how many take those jobs @nd stay in them.

Apparently, the current administration has impacted his steady flow of cheap illegal day laborers. He's also the same scrub that cries and complains about how inhumane and stupid the border wall plan is.

Means: The border wall will prevent him from getting his 4 to 6 hours of labor on his property for a $20 and a burrito.
There are reportedly 11 million undocumented people living in the US, right now. The going rate at my local HD parking lot is about $10/ hr. I know plenty of people Republican and Democrat that rely on this one off form of occasional labor.

Come winter, the guys with plows pick them up for the back breaking hand shoveling work.

Ignorance of the law can't be a defense...they didn't use E-Verify...they should be prosecuted...They knew they were employing illegal immigrants.

No shortage of people, including Trump, talk about how illegals steal our jobs.

Donít hear much about those who hire undocumented people.

I donít want to pay for other peopleís stuff. Your social stability is nothing more than perpetual handouts to the perpetual takers who provide nothing in return.

Eliminate welfare in its entirety. Work or starve.
