    Big surprise radical extreme leftist can't accept the facts.

    EDIT: Even more absurdly, this is about "immigrants vs. natives" and not about illegal immigrants. Good job Erod.

    I'll bet that is coming from the point of view that capitalists are conservatives only, and that conservatives are republican.

    I wonder if you understand the argument, switching from republican/democrat to liberal/conservative.

    They are not synonymous you know.

    Yes it would, but the liberals continue to stop any regulations to do so.

    I'm sure there are those who do not appreciate your racist bantering by using the term "wetback." What other racial slurs do you use? Does that somehow many you feel superior to some of my friends?

    The illegal immigrant is generally guilty of little more than wanting to provide for his family. The employer however in my opinion should loose hos business license if a private contractor. Corporations should be highly fined or broken. Those responsible for choosing illegal employees over those with the legal right to work are dispicable, regardless of political leaning.

    I completely agree with jailing those who knowingly employ illegals, or who do so by turning a blind eye.

    Note:

    Your bigotry is not appropriate.

    The majority are.

    Isn't it estimated that we have about 10 times the number of illegals entering this country each year vs. legal permanent?

    I said 'most', as in more than half. That's not the same as 'only', is it.

    Yes, I know. How about 'conservative Republicans', does that work?

    Which liberals? Which regulations?

    I don't think either one of us should hold his breath until it happens, though.

    Calm down. It was a literary device meant to juxtapose the poverty and marginal status of the illegal immigrant and the cynicism of the businessmen who use them.

    I will correct your ignorance.

    It is a racial slur, every bit as derogatory as the "n-word."

    Good luck with that. Pro's have tried and failed.

    The 'n-word'? Seriously? Well, I'll be d-worded. Have we gotten so f-wording careful that we're scared of even referring to words by their names?
    Ah, s-word.

    I forget the specifics. That discussion I participated in was years back. The existing laws are not Adequate. They are only good enough to keep employers for being sues that do check legal working eligibility. Anyone who wishes to sidestep them can. Only the stupid ones who leave themselves open to "knowingly providing a job" to illegals as provable in court, can be prosecuted.

    Goodbye.

    I'm done with you. I have no respect for the bigotry you practice. Reminds me of the filthy white supremacists.

    So we're doing a good job creating jobs for illegals, but not the Americans that were here in the first place.
    Actually your link says this includes legal immigrants as well, and it includes higher skilled jobs that check for things like that anyway; probably not many illegals in those jobs.

    So, what it appears to be is that they are simply more willing to take what they can find when they need it.

    This reflects my general impression of natives who are over roughly 35. Many are not willing to take a downgrade. I know a guy who's been unemployed for 3 years and doing odds and ends because he thinks he's too good for a lower paid job. He's blown through his savings, and now he's lost his house.

    Younger people seem less susceptible to such vanity; I know I'm certainly not. But I've still managed to climb, so evidently it can be done.
