Why is it not already against the law to hire undocumented workers??!! Companies continually hire them for cheap labor, and barely recieve a slap on the hand. THAT is the REAL problem. All the other nonsense about closing up the borders, racial profiling, is just a distraction and does NOTHING to solve the problem. Until the availability of jobs to illegals is reduced or eliminated, nothing will change, and the public's anger will continue to grow.

so - it's currently *legal* to employ *illegal* immigrants? What sort of madness is that?

Honestly, I think this town's approach is the best one. Rather than raiding and rounding up the people who are lured by the prospect of jobs, raid and roundup the people who are *hiring them in the first place*. Makes wonderful sense to me.

Funny how your hatred seems directed entirely at the undocumented workers, and not the companies who are knowingly hiring them. Who's really to blame?

Since most illegals come from Mexico, and Mexico is NOT a poor country since it has the fifth richest economy in the world, and by sending its teeming masses of work and entitlement thieves to our country, that status keeps on rising. Mexico has more resources per square mile than the U.S. and plenty of money to take care of its own people. Why should the taxpayers of this country subsidize Mexico's corruption?
Mexico is one of the wealthier countries in the world in terms of GDP, but it has the 13th largest economy, not the 5th.

How could a company hire an ILLEGAL ALIEN if the ILLEGAL ALIEN had not ILLEGALLY entered the US?(There is no such thing as an undocumented worker)

Why don't YOU get facts? You're statements are somewhat true. Except you forgot the two wild cards. Fake ID #1.#2. Why do you think they all want to come here just in time to spit out a kid? They're called "Anchor babies" for a reason. The reason being that if they're born here, they're automatically a citizen. You know, like in 14th amendment? Which makes them eligible for all benefits due a citizen. Including welfare, medical, food stamps, section 8 housing, etc. etc,. The illegals get the benefits not for them, but for their citizen offspring. Thank God they can't have litters like a dog or a cat. We'd really be overrun with 'em. Ya gotta love all the bleeding hearts that pipe up when the courts decide to deport one or two of these thieving jerks. You hear "oh boo-hoo, whaa whaa, they're splitting up a family." No, wrong! Often times the illegal has been here for years. Obviously knew the law, were aware they were here illegally, and snubbed their nose at us. Saw this situation on the news not that long ago. Woman had been in this country illegally for 14 years, STILL couldn't speak English, and was booo hoooing, through an interpretor, because she was being deported and it would, "split up the family." NO...Take the kids and hubby too along, back to Mayheeco; problem solved. Had she not been here ILLEGALLY to begin with it would have never been a problem. Her fault not ours. The numbers speak for themselves, Americans are sending a message loud and clear. "We're taking back our country!" Pay attention congress. Pay attention Mr. President. For a change, just for a change do what the MAJORITY of Americans want done!! Not what big business and their treasonous cronies want!

The obama administration already told the American people 80% of which disagree with ILLEAGLE immigration, he does not care what they think. He will continue to rule with political correctness and destroy our country.
Look, I'm not a big Obama fan, but it's been previously pointed out that Reagan started the amnesty program in 1986. Every president since then, regardless of political affiliation, has done nothing. Congress, no matter which party has controlled it has done NOTHING. It seems short sighted and politically biased to blame this mess on a President that's been in office for 17 months. When you consider how many of his predecessors had 8 YEARS each and did NOTHING! It's time to quit playing the political "blame game," it soves nothing, and there's plenty of blame to go around.

You're right. All Obamas predesessors tried the same amnesty garbage to an extent. But whats the sense in bitching about them. They took their money and ran. Now Obama is at the helm so he gets the heat. In all fairness to the previous amnesty loving bufoons, Obama has pushed harder for amnesty and made more promises than all the others. Couple that with his I don't care what the people think attitude and the fact that the Democratic party will get 90% of the new votes and that's why people will be a little rougher on Obama. They see what he did with healthcare and they won't let him defy the American people again.

Better question - WHY would a company hire someone who's here ILLEGALLY?

Since they're here ILLEGALLY they lack any kind of work visa, etc, and yet they're still HIRED by these companies.

The companies that hire illegals are as responsible for illegal immigration as the immigrants themselves. They come here because they *know* they'll get hired. People who think hiring illegals is a good idea should be treated like criminals, because they are.

According to the US Constitution, the baby born on US soil is a natural born citizen. So you're saying the American baby shouldn't receive anything...

Have a problem with the parents? Arrest them and ship them back to Mexico! The American baby? Put him in foster care...no problemo!

Get your head out of the sand or wherever you have been keeping it; this is how the anchor baby scam works:

No individual may [legally] receive both AFDC and SSI benefits.

All right you ignorant ****. Here are a few refutations:

1) Illegals cannot get welfare. As a matter of fact, they prefer to remain under the radar and avoid generating a document trail.

2) Illegals pay taxes. Sales tax. If they're working with false papers, they're paying PAYROLL tax. If they're getting paid in cash, it's the underground economy, and like MANY Americans who get paid in cash this isn't taxed...go check with your redneck waitress whether or not she truthfully reports her tips...

3) Illegals don't get medical assistance. They can't "walk" into your HealthPartners clinic and get an examination. They use the emergency services at hospitals, because, frankly, that's what it's for. As well, for you ignorant ****ks, flu viruses and other illnesses really don't care if you're here legally or not.

4) Illegals cannot get section 8 housing. Go check the FACTS.

5) Illegals cannot vote.

6) Illegals work harder and longer hours than most lazy, fat white Americans.

Look moron, it's been pointed out to you in previous comments that IT'S NOT THE ILLEGAL that's eligible for section 8, food stamps, welfare, medical etc. IT'S the ANCHOR BABY!!!!! Learn to read and COMPREHEND!! The guardian, or parent collects. Illegals do vote!! They're forbidden by law to do so, but by just being here they're breaking the law; what's one more. You don't have to prove citizenship to vote, just residency. As for your #6) You can stick that where the sun don't shine too you unpatriotic P. O. S.. Try proving it!

Obviously you DON'T know very much about our welfare system. For you to make these ignorant comments either makes you a NON citizen OR some member of a subversive group that is determined to destroy our county. We have arrested illegal aliens living is "sec8" housing in a southern suburb who were members of a Mexican drug cartel. For your to expound this "drivel" is a disgrace.

The kids should go with the parents. Why the heck should taxpayers be held responsible for these kids, we didn't have them and we sure don't need to support them? There is no need to break up the familia, let us force their avaricious parents to be personally responsible for their own kids...now that is a novel idea. I am saying it is a scam...their parents NEVER CONTRIBUTED A DIME INTO THE COFFERS, so they should not be beneficiaries of that system...CAN YOU GET THAT IN YOUR THICK HEAD?

Under Title 8 Section 1325 of the U.S. Code, "Improper Entry by Alien,"
any citizen of any country other than the United States who:
Enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place
other than as designated by immigration officers; or
Eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers; or
Attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact; has committed a federal crime.

The topic of illegal immigration is not about race, body size, religion, creed, gender, sexual preference, or the poverty level of other countries - it is about breaking the law. When a foreign national crosses our borders or overstays a visa, it is against the law, and the lawbreaker is in fact an illegal alien. It does not matter whether the illegal alien is green, blue, or purple; the issue is one of law enforcement, not race.

Well for starters Bush would have respected the will of the people in AZ and not tried to litigate the issue in court all for millions of new voters.
