No American employer means no money for rent, food or gasoline for illegal aliens.

REPORT ALL EMPLOYERS OF ILLEGAL ALIENS TO YOUR STATE FOR NON-PAYMENT OF PAYROLL TAXES!

Highlander, another thought on your comment, "They are here and that's a fact."
Your logic is lacking in comprehension, let us take it to another level. We have bank robbers, rapist, child molesters, murderers, white collar criminals, scam artists,.... "They are here and that's a fact".
So, by your standard of redress we should let all those criminals go free too.
No, that's not what I implied.

And yes: The criminals are indeed here as well.

The first step in dealing with a problem is to first IDENTIFY the problem for what it is.

You can't do anything about something if you don't understand the something.

Regarding criminals: What makes them?

If the person who's been arrested and convicted of a crime —itself which harmed no one— then why are they a criminal?

The largest number of people who are in jail have convictions related directly to drug use.

Why is drug use even a crime? Prior to the 1930's there was no such thing as a 'drug war,' save for Prohibition. Before then, people used drugs and there was no big deal.

It was the busybodies who connived to make laws against using drugs.

What about the other 'victimless crimes?' Why are are they crimes?

Most of the people who are involved in additional crimes are those who've been convicted of victimless crimes because they can't get decent jobs as a result of their criminal records.

Then we come to the illegals. As I said before: They are being allowed in to push the agenda.

In all of this, there's money to be made. The ones pushing the agenda are making the money and stand to make a whole lot more.

the history of the ee.uu is the uniform code and homogenization of everything. don't expect appreciation of any culture, plant or thing that doesn't conform to the mean spirited, monotheistic Europeans rejects, remember Jackson and the trail of tears..
