Criminals. It is illegal to work in this country without a valid SS#. The only exception is if you have a green card or a visa.
Illegal aliens have none of those so apart from worling illegally illegal aliens are illegally in the country so at least two crimes are going on there.

boo hoo illegally in this country. did they cross a line in the desert? boo hoo. jaywalking is a crime too, maybe it's a good idea to differentiate between real crimes that harm people and paperwork crimes that don't.
You're completely clueless, aren't you? Jaywalking doesn't negatively impact millions of Americans. Illegal immigration does. They steal our jobs, our taxes, overcrowd our schools, jail and hospitals, dilute our culture, commit felony ID theft and/or tax evasion. Big fail on your analogy about a jaywalker.

IMO what the gubament should do is make a policy where ppl looking for menial labor jobs can come from 3rd world countries and pay 10K for entry to the usa and ability to work for like 5 years or something.
Adults in the usa don't want those jobs and get on SSI and welfare and get housing subidies so they wind up taking in more money than any 10buck/hr job would provide for them anyway. We should deport all those legal citizens who are able bodied but dont' work and let in unskilled immigrants who are happy to pay money to be smuggled here illegally so they would be happy to pay money to enter legally to work as well.
I know of people paying 15K and more to be smuggled here nowadays. They do it to get jobs. Take the money out of the human trafficking organizations and have it go to the gubament. They are coming anyway. They can not be stopped, period.
Think about this: There has been a 'war on drugs' going on for over 40 years, it has cost 2 TRILLION dollars, millions of lives lost and not only are drugs readily available on the streets of every town in the country..... the gubament can not even keep drugs out of ANY MAXIMUM SECURITY PRISON IN THE ENTIRE COUNTRY. LMFAO. If you don't realize how bad your being screwed by paying out the ass to support that war, while your neighbors are being jailed and killed b/c of that war it's time to wake up and smell the coffee.
Illegals should use 5k of that 15k to legally come to America then they would have no fear of arrest and deportation and would be welcome here. They simply choose to be criminals , plain and simple.

Correction! Most Americans do not want them here only the greedy employers who want their cheap labor do. Those crooks do not represent the majority of Americans.

these folks are criminals plain and simple.

best way to fix the problem for starters with the south is start charging their governemnt,then make the border secure as we do our yards to keep thieves out,or maybe like your house when leaving for work,deal with all caught as you would if coming home catching an intruder inside. that will solve the problem.

As long as YOU pay for all that and not ME I don't have a big problem with it. If you want to stick the bill up my azz I do have a problem with it and think things are much better off as is. Don't want to pay more for goods or services of any kind, period.
sucks for you,I pay for anchors schooling,food stamps and healthcare,not to mention the hospital bills thier parents leave unpaid. Every working American is paying for this invasion. Americans deserve a higher pay and minimum wage will not be anywhere near $25 an hour,idiot

Then you are breaking the law! You have no right to hire illegals for any reason. Superior service? LOL! I've seen their shoddy workmanship. Prices would not go up that much by paying Americans a reasonable wage and it wouldn't have to be $25 an hour. Exaggerate, much? Any so-called savings from illegal alien labor is wiped out and then some from our taxes having to cover their enormous social costs.

It will be if you want to overcome what the welfare crowd gets in cash and goods and services. Add all that up and it's over $20/hr for them to sit home and watch TV. Duh
Illegals are getting mega bucks in welfare thru their anchor babies. You were saying?

If farm wages rose 40 percent, each household would spend about $15 more a year, farm worker wages and benefits for fresh fruits and vegetables would cost the average household $38 a year.
