    Here's a crazy thought...

    If the Labor Department knows who's employing illegal immigrants, REPORT THEM, and have them suffer the consequences.

    /facepalm. The reason business hire illegals over citizens is because they dont have to pay them minimum wage.

    The wage may be in part, but there's also the various taxes and benefits that don't have to be paid, and you get to ignore things like safe working conditions because illegals aren't going to go file an OSHA complaint. A $10/hr illegal might actually be cheaper than a minimum wage legal worker.

    Still no substance to teh thread, just trolling me. It's okay Duece, we know how hard it must be for you to find a way to defend the Labor Deptarment saying they'll help illegals break the law.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Again thats the point, the illegal is hired because they dont have to pay for any of that.

    I think this is a non-issue. What illegal worker will tell the government that he is not making the same as his legal counterpart?

    He has to know he will be deported just for reporting to them.

    The people supporting this are probably doing this only to gain legal latino votes. It can't be anything else.

So in reality they are doing this FOR the American workers because the illegals are forcing them out of the market because they are "willing" to be hired for much less in wages.
    That has to be some of the worst logic I have ever heard. You think its benifical to throw money to people who are already breaking the law to go after people already breaking the law? Here's a crazy idea, if you've already identified the illegals and you would have to if you are going to give them money, DEPORT THEM AND FINE THE COMPANY. Honestly how you think giving illegals more money is a solution really is unbelievable.

    And before you use your normal "they should not be there"
    Its the LAW. Do you even remember the law?.

    then no **** sherlock but as long as businesses hire the illegals then they will come to the US and as long as they do, then why not force the businesses in question into the limelight by demanding that illegals are paid the same as American's?
    LOL Because if you can identify the illegals already you can SAVE that money and DEPORT THEM.

    And yes the best way would be to hunt down the businesses in question but it aint like that is gonna happen is it now.. your republican friends would stop that in a heartbeat as they have done for generations.
    You are so full of double talk its hard to keep up. If you can already identify illegals you deport them. Thats the law. Then you fine the companies. Giving extra money? That is simply beyond stupid.

    You would be surprised at how much money some of the Mexicans make. I knew one who was a roofer who bragged to me that he made $16oo per week. He exploited his fellow mexican workers, who were mostly illegals, worse than any American would.

    He told me his biggest problem was fixing his **** ups from the poor work that they did.

    There is actually an underground mexican employment company in this area who supply the illegal workers. Most of the workers they recruit do not speak English and are quite naive and easily intimidated.

    This same Mexican I am talking about also stole a few thousand dollars a tools from me. When I confronted him about it, he laughed at me and said, "Go ahead, report me to the police. I don't care. There is not a thing you can do about it"

    He was right. There was nothing I could do about it. They get special treatment.

    The main point I am trying to make is that they treat their brothers and sisters worse than any American does.
