    I completely agree. I hate how an anti-illegal immigration platform has become a "conservative" position. Its just common sense.

    I canít believe that it costs $12,000.00+ to kick a Mexican back into Mexico.

    Are we taking all of the illegalís cash on hand? These people carry cash, so we should fine them out of their cash before we kick them out.

    Then we should do an acid tattoo that marks them as illegal so that they can never get a job in this country again.

    As for our cheap labor needs; I would allow registered Mexicans to travel and work but they could never become a citizen nor would their kids be citizens.

    they don't want to be here....most anyway. but there are no jobs in Mexico that pay well. they can work for peanuts here for half a year, and live well in Mexico for half a year...

    From the same source:
    How many of them fill out a 1040 every year?

    A good idea if you ask me. They come for the work, they can be forced to leave because of the work

    No, they don't. They can't. They are using somebody else's tax ID number, so the IRS would go "Whoa!" the moment they got income tax forms from people that were NOT the person to whom the tax ID was issued. They get around that by filling out w-4's with enough deductions claimed that no state or federal income tax is withheld. FICA is still withheld, and when it's credited to the stolen SS account, the legitimate owner of that account will discover it royally mucked up, and even frozen because of the irregularities.

    As for enforcing immigration laws against employers, if Obama has raised the number of employers caught and punished hiring illegals, more power to him. Making it too painful for employees to hire illegals is the foundation of solving the illegal immigrant problem.

    Due respect, but I wasn't suggesting that it would be wise for them to steal the identity of a living person.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    They steal the identity of whatever person owns the SS or green card # that they can buy from the trunk of a hoopty parked in a mall parking lot. Frankly, most are indeed of living people... and dead people kind of set off alarms in the IRS office as well. The IRS folks are not idiots, and they have a very sophisticated data bank.

    Bottom line, we need to crack down on employers. The government has an internet website where any SS/green card number can be verified in mere seconds. The ONLY reason we have this massive illegal problem is that greedy employers think they can get away with exploiting illegals with pittance pay and crap working conditions. The sad part is that they are right, because our government doesn't spend the resources necessary to find them.

    Sorry I have to disagree with some of what you are saying, I'm sure there are places that pay them badly, but there are also places where they earn more money then many American's As I stated before I'm in the construction industry, I have “seen” 30 man crews walk of the job with over $1,000 each for the week … this is cash in hand. Now I don't know where you are from, but to many folks this would not be considered a pittance. Also this is not an isolated case, this is quite common in the construction industry.

    As for those evil greedy employers, again I'm speaking only of the construction industry, that just isn't the case. In fact ...if you look at how most businesses are run, it would be considered losing money. Case in point, lets say the job I'm doing has been sold for 25million, the company's profit is a percentage of that, now if that same job had to be sold for 30million, because of labor costs being higher, and they maintained the same profit percentage, they would make more by it costing 30million then the 25 million.

    One thing that needs changing in this nation of ours, is the thinking that business is evil, and profits are a bad thing, the only reason I can see for going into business, is to make a profit, and that profit has to create a better living for you then working for someone else, if it doesn't then why go into business, and live with the headaches of owning a business.

    When was the last time anyone here worried about making a $15,000 a week payroll? When was the last time you went down and took a 30 day loan out to meet payroll because someone who owed you money was late in paying, you don't have the option of telling your employee's that they are going to have to wait because you don't have their money, at least not if you are going to stay in business for long. To those that keep harping on those evil business men, try starting and running one, I think your tune would quickly change
