Undocumented is an incorrect word to describe them also. It is a PC word used to call the attention away from the fact that they are here illegally in our country.

Yes its an incorrect term. Undocumented is a legal immigrant without documents.

Fine

attach an ITIN tax number to it and then only issue if an employer's tax information is also on it, a sponsor. Then create a new tax rate for illegals to ensure they are putting something back into the system instead of working under the table. If at the end of the year there has been no tax withdrawn and attached to the ID then consider it a felony to the illegal and employer on the id. Make them show this id everywhere the rest of us have to show id. Tie it to the DREAMERS free status too. No tax, DREAM status removed and instantly deportable.
I'm going to guess there wouldn't be many requests if there was a way to make them accountable.

Nor are visitors allowed to work in this country, live in subsidized housing, or collect welfare and food stamps. Also, "visitors" are invited guests who enter through the front door and greeted. They don't break a window, or sneak through an unlocked door.

They're still illegal immigrants as far as I'm concerned, and I will continue to refer to them by that term.

The more "temporary" the better -- it's time to start deporting them and stop heaping all the rewards on them. And yes -- we can be humane enough when deporting them -- the ICE has those big comfortable white buses.

I don't get why people on this forum keep repeating the same line over and over even though is completely false, undocumented immigrants do not qualify for section 8, welfare, or food stamps. This is simply false. It gets repeated in this forum over and over.

And yet they receive it, funny how they live in section 8 (Many illegal immigrants live in public housing - USATODAY.com and http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=51d_1238675164), and receive welfare (Welfare Tab for Children of Illegal Immigrants Estimated at $600M in L.A. County | Fox News).

But you will say, "it is for their "American citizen" children", while I'll say, "that those children may have been born within the US, but that does not make them US Citizens."
