For six years, Modesto Roque went to work at the sprawling Silver Line window factory in North Brunswick -- a union job with health insurance and wages that started at $7.50 an hour and rose to $9.25. No one, ...

Don't get me wrong, there are still union jobs and active unions here. But, with Texas being a right to work state, they cannot control a job as they once did.
As far as entry into plant sites for work...this is one place that Homeland Security policies are working. An employee must first be hired by a contractor, then he/she must attend an industrial indoctrination and safety training course which has been expanded to include background screening. A permanent record is compiled and an ID card is issued. Then the plant or project security people must review the documentation of each employee a contractor brings onsite and entry into the plant is only through a security check point. In addition to this, if a plant or jobsite is located on a shipping waterway the Coast Guard has ultimate control over the security of the operation. They have the authority to shut down an operation if security is compromised.

'THIS IS THE FUTURE'

The Silver Line firings are part of a growing trend in which employers are purging unauthorized workers to avoid a fledgling immigration crackdown by the U.S. government, according to immigration attorneys and experts.

"I think this is the future," said Cynthia Lange, a San Francisco immigration attorney whose firm, Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Lowey, has offices in New York and Iselin. "Companies are looking internally and they want to be the first ones to look at it before they are like sitting ducks."

Deport all illegals that are working in this country. Doesn't matter if they've worked a
job for 2 months or 20 years.
DO NOT REWARD THEM FOR THEIR CRIME.

Yay for unions, always out to protect the interests of their members....

Now how does adding illegal aliens to their membership protect the interests of their other members?

So this is how the game will be played. First discribe illegal residents as immigrants. Second, provide government document such as a state drivers identification. Next, voting fraud. Umm,
this is made for TV.

Pro-illegals need to stop making excuses for illegal aliens coming here, breaking our laws and taking jobs, resources and our money that they have no right too. The countries where these people came from need reform, not America, nor our immigration laws. No changes made in these countries does nothing to make things better for their people and the status quo will remain and generation after generation will have the same fate. All you are doing by supporting them being here is helping these people abandon their own and their responsibility to fight and make their countries different for their people. Stop enabling them.

It doesn't...greedy union leadership just wants the money their dues add to the coffers. But it does give them more money to fight with. Other than that it only weakens the union.

Why are our elected politcians giving more Social Security benefits to immigrants, than we who worked for it?

If an immigrant is over 65 they can apply for SSI and Medicaid and get more than my mom gets for Social Security and she worked from 1944 until 2004. She is only getting $791 per month because she was born in 1924 and there is a "catch 22".

It is interesting that the federal government provides a single Refugee with a monthly allowance of $1890.00 and each can also obtain an
Additional $580.00 in social assistance for a total of $2470.00/month.

This compares very well to a single pensioner who after contributing to the growth and development of America for 40 to 50 years can only receive a monthly maximum of $1012.00 in old age pension and Guaranteed Income Supplement.

Maybe our pensioners should apply as refugees!

Consider sending this to all your American friends so we can all be ticked off and may be get the refugees cut back to $ 1012.00 and the
Pensioners up to $2470.00 and enjoy some of the money we were forced to submit to the Government over the last 40 or 50 or 60 years.

Please forward to every American to expose what our elected Politicians have been doing over the past 11 years - to the over-taxed American.

Becuase they use more than one fake ID per person. Did you see where they had one illegal collecting welfare with 30 different ID? And do you know what they do to a illegal breaking a law? They just ship him home without any conviction on his record so the next time he comes in he is clean NO record.

if they are illegal, there is only one thing that needs to be considered - DEPORTATION.

you people are being taken for fools. there is no "border patrol", and there is nobody besides you cry babies who want to keep illegals out of the country. illegals come and go as they please. there is no one there to stop them. i knew one personally who got a fake driver's license so he could get a job. he got stopped and got a traffic ticket. he appeared in court. the judge asked why he had a fake license, not a real one? he replied that he was here illegally, and could not get a real one. the judge gave him a $300 ticket for driving without a license.he paid the $300, he walked out of the courtroom, got in his car, and drove off.

I know the link below has nothing to do with illegal immigrant, but check out the "thousands of voters petitioned". In essence citizen of one state had enough, made calls, signed petitions, made more calls and a change is ocurring. Can you imagine if someone did that to tighten down who could receive welfare benifits, state penalities against companies or individuals who hire or house illegal immigrants, petition for laws that compliment and support FED laws.

That would be a great ideal wouldn't it???? Hmmm arizona, oklahoma anyone?

I guess that that was just a crude way to let him know what I thought about his story. Either he lied or he was lied to.
MCCAIN LOVES ILLEGALS

United States

#41 Jan 26, 2008
John McCain, who is soft on illegals, has hired an advisor named Hernandez who authored a book on the U.S. and Mexico being one big "region" (instead of two separate countries) and ADVOCATES OPEN BORDERS, NO RESTRICTIONS. Do not forget this if you are a hard-working American taxpayer. McCain promotes a "fast path to citizenship" for ILLEGALS which means they go right up to the front of the line and get all their needs provided by YOU and ME, an endless gravy train which will enable lawlessness and budget-breaking "entitlements" to ILLEGALS.
