De-incentivizing illegal immigration - Barnesville.com

Hmmm, I think I said this. Why do businesses keep saying we need to hire illegal aliens, when we have our own pool of resources?

Quote:
America’s county jails are filled to overflowing with young men (and a few women) incarcerated for non-violent crimes such as minor probation violations, drug possession charges, or failure to pay child support. These non-violent offenders could serve as a tremendous resource of labor that small business owners could turn to for employment. Of course, the obvious and immediate reaction from most potential employers would be that they don’t want to hire criminals. Thing is, in hiring illegal immigrants, they do exactly that – hire criminals. They just don’t see it that way, conveniently ignoring an illegal immigrant’s “illegal” status in an effort to make money off of him or her.
Pro-illegal alien advocates always say anti groups offer no answers. I disagree, they just cannot see past "amnesty only".

It’s laughable that employers claim they don’t want to hire “criminals” while they eagerly employ illegals. Apparently they don’t consider theft, fraud, and tax evasion “crimes.”

For some employers, theft and fraud is part of their daily business routine.
