The most effective way to stop hiring of illegals is to make it a felony, with revocation of license to do business as the only penalty on conviction. No fines, no appeals... just put them out of business, permanently.

I do not agree with hiring illigal immigrants, because at Wendeys restaurant at Greeley Colorado 2333 8th ave 80631 theres alot of illigal immigrants working there and they talk spanish and they say alot of bad things that we americans dont understand so we cant even go to have a great lunch anymore.

Why do LEGAL and U.S. born citizens HAVE to show TWO Forms of I.D to get hired in this country, while the ILLEGALS either have NONE or present FALSIFIED I.D.s????

Why am I FORCED to become BILINUGAL in my OWN country????

If American Citizens and the Department of Homeland Security are so worried about terrorists, then how did 12 million (or more)ILLEGALS get here????

this is to a few of you, for one if going to wendys in greeley,co jessica and not being able to understand them speak spanish,then you do you know they are talking bad? and if you dont like the service and know they are working there,then why dont you jump behind the counter and make a hamburger for people that are to lazy to do so,but rather be on welfare and public aid,at least the immigrants are willing to do jobs the lazy americans cant do but sit around and collect off welfar and public aid....something to think about.

Why should we have to learn their language when they're the ones that come here illegally and try to stay. We belong here. My Dad was fires because there was too many workers and they kept the illegal immigrants because they took less pay!

They are illegals because they can't find a fast way to get legal. They do jobs no one wants to. They work their b u t t s off doing extremes jobs, they pay taxes, and most of them are honest and dream with the same american dream we do for their family...and their sin is not speak English.

Why is that everyone posting in California forums seems to be from some other state? Is there nothing going on in your own corners of the world?

No Veronica, they are illegals because they entered our country illegally. We have legal immigrants (non-citizens) who are here legally and lawfully applying for citizenship while they work.

As to jobs no-one wantsÖ 45% of the Hispanics in North Carolina are illegal. NC is one of the two worse states in the union for illegals. Illegals hold most of the construction jobs that residents would love to get their hands on but canít. The employers higher illegals because they work for less and they can be blackmailed into breaking safety rules. Preventing their hire would increase salaries for workers and create a safer work environment for residents and legal non-citizens alike.

As to paying taxes, most illegals donít pay taxes because theyíre hired off the books. However, their kids still get a free education (about $12,000 per kid in NC) and all of them still get free medical (Yes we do have free medical in the US. Itís available to those who have no insurance. Itís not in a private hospital with a doctor who finished at the top of his/her class, but itís still decent and quiet expensive to US citizens who pay their taxes and everyone elseís.) care.

Why donít we fix the problemÖ our Republican leaders donít want to offend business donors who may be raking an extra large profits from illegal labor, and our Democrats get the vast majority of votes from the illegals (Yes illegals vote. Thereís no requirement to show an ID to vote in most states. Rent a video, yes, vote, no!). However, polls show (even those conducted by CNN) that 78% of the populous want to tighten up our boarders and stop ILLEGAL immigration.

I can tell you one thing, I will not hire 'em. Jobs no one wants? A friend of mine tried to hire one to do some yard work, and the illegal wanted $15 an hour with a 4 hour minimum! Give me a break!

You have to run a cash business to pay off the books.
An employer fills out an I9 for the employee with the documentation the employee provides. Employers have no way to verify if social security card and the resident alien card is valid.
The best part of the deal is that the employee pays taxes and the employer pays payroll taxes on top of those, the government collects them and never bothers to tell the employer know that the documents are bad. I've known people that have worked their entire working life and paid into the system without ever filing a tax return.
Itís the way the system works. Windy's is perfectly legal. It's the State and the Feds that are screwed up. There is no reason the government cant flag a bad social security card at the first quarterly payroll tax payment. They donít for a reason.

Maybe thatís the way it works in LA, but come on down here to North Carolina. Why do you think 45% of our Hispanics are illegal? Itís because the employers do pay in cash and our Democrat government turns a blind eye looking for the illegal votes.(No ID required to vote here and one of only two states in the union that does not require a SSN or any other form of ID to get a drivers license. Plus we have motor voter registration which means once you get your Drivers License you are registered to vote. The people have tried to change this for four years running and have been blocked by both parties.) Construction companies here will have a full Hispanic crew; about half are legal while the other half are illegal. The Owner of the business makes everything look legal with his legal labor, and then pays his illegal labor under the table. The legal labor doesnít comment because they are usually the one who brought their illegal brother/cousin/etc to the employer for employment.

As to paying all these wonderful taxes that is such a bargain to the nationÖ Both parties have acknowledged that illegals receive far more in services than they pay in taxes. The only people who try to deny this are the activists, be they the ďChristen-do-gooderĒ activists on the right, or the ďI hate the richĒ(defined as anyone earning more than the person making the statement) activist on the left. Both of whom have the attitude of ďI know what believe is true do to my own divine wisdom so donít try to point out what an idiot I am with the facts.Ē
