I'm a shareholder in Berkshire Hathaway (Buffet's company). Berkshire owns a large portfolio of companies, some of which surely employ illegals (either knowingly or otherwise) as they are large companies with a lot of low wage jobs.

A few Berkshire companies that likely employ illegals:

Clayton Homes (and 2 smaller home builders), Dairy Queen, Acme Brick, Fruit of the Loom (at least up until they closed their last US plant), Sees Candies.

Finally, we agree on something.

You are right. Changes are coming. Changes that will make it easier for people to emigrate to the USA, and changes that will make it easier for those already here to stay.

<quoted text>"that likely employ illegals,"not good enough for me
Short of a raid, there is no way to prove it.

Just as there is no way I can prove that the workers I hire to repair my deck are "illegal."

But it's a 100% surety.

Any large business that hires large numbers of low wage workers, especially a business in Texas (e.g. Acme Brick) is sure to have illegals working for it. Maybe not knowingly, but any illegal with $25 can come up with a decent set of fake documents (social security card, birth certificate, driver's license, etc).

But if you choose to keep your head buried in the sand, pretending it isn't happening, you are free to do so, lol.

As a shareholder in Berkshire, I really don't care, as long as they do good work.

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! What you don't realize is that America was a thriving country before you came!!! That's the reason you came! We have our own PhD's, MD's, scientist, etc. We aren't lacking in AMERICAN skilled labor.
The problem arose when greedy corporations shipped jobs overseas, diluting our middle class. This was followed by illegal aliens and most recent arrival foreign borns who will take anything. Illegal aliens take LESS than anything. A good example is Microsoft. We have a bazillion American techies. What Microsoft is doing is importing people from places like India, who accept much lower wages. The sad part about all of this is that the people who accepted the low wages will be asking for higher wages, and the beat starts all over.
Again, NO(!) I don't care if you have 20 masters degrees, we have our own...sorry! No I'm not!

I am in favor all undocumented people in this country (amnesty) but I wanna explain , USA do not need 12 milhon undocumented in this country:

1) to pay in-come tax,
Note: they print money every day, milhons, and milhons
2) to be a labor productive
Note: they can buy whatever they wanna.
3) to go to the army
Note: they have a NUKE
4) nevér say " they can not deport 20 milhon...... "
Note : " yes they can "

So, by 27 years undocumented people in this country are like white mouse in the lab,(1986-2013), check this out:

1) they showed what happens when you pass AMNESTY BILL (1986 republican Regan president ) without employers enforcement,,( if they contract somebody without properly documents)
Note: 1986 -- Bill gates, Apple, linux or NASA did not have many tecnology that we have today, funny :-)

2) 27 years with illegal entry by south border means a huge black market for dirt guys.
A) smuglers
B) drugs
C) money wash
D) prostitution
E) slave labor
F) desistabilization on mexico governament
G) human trafic
Note: many more, to open a big hole in american economy. I forget about those guys with expire visas.

3) scapegoat to american election. Just to promote bad guys in our powerfull body ( governament )
Now is time to fix this broken system , because many people death, sofer and cry just to enrich a few, bad busyness without a lider.

Thanks

Why would anyone other than a local resident have heard of "Howard Industries?"

I did a Google search and all I got was that it's a small, privately held, electrical parts maker in Bumscrew, Mississippi.

Do a Google news search and all you get is ONE link- to the company home page.

Maybe you live near Bumscrew, MS and Howard Industries is a big deal out there, but to those of us for who Mississippi is just a place to drive through quickly, "Howard Industries" is meaningless.

So tell me, in your mind, what is important about "Howard Industries?"

Okay, now that I know what you were talking about, I found it.

The raid was way back in 2008, almost 5 years ago. I guess that's why in no longer shows up on Google news.

So they sent 600 illegals back (out of 12,000,000+). I'll bet most of them were back in the USA by mid-2009.

The company paid a fine, but if, as you say "the company is worth BILLIONS" that fine was a drop in the bucket. They probably just considered it part of the cost of doing business.

So the net effect on illegal immigration was essentially zero.

Like I said, it's like the insane "War on Drugs." The government manages to pull off a high profile raid/bust once in a while, but it's nothing more than a show. The net effect on drug use or illegal immigration is essentially nil.

Rather than ineffectively banning drugs or illegals, and wasting tens of billions of taxpayer dollars doing it, we may as well legalize both and set up a rational programs to regulate them (rather than ban them). Because banning something the people want never works in a free society.

First off, I can't figure out whether you're in Boston or NY. Secondly, you like Here Is One make excuses and continue to hide like cowards behind a computer, when I've given you every opportunity to unveil yourselves.

You're the cowards that whine and troll around aimlessly, because it's in your nature.... Acting like a troll gets old after a while for any normal person. You continue, because you're not.... You ate paint chips as a kid and became an underachiever and a drop out as a result. Your posts reflect very poor aptitude.

The only facts that matters are that they broke a law to be here, broke another to work here and then broke yet another to drive to their jobs. Does anybody really think that they will suddenly be law-abiding citizens the minute they are given a free pass? There will be more laws that they won't like, and they will break them as well.
