OMG, we're already paying for their health care, they sometimes live in HUD housing, send their kids to OUR schools and these greedy business owners want us to pay more?

if this hold to be true and there is a true need hopefully these employers will foot all the bills on the folks they call in. there is no reason to bring anyone here and put the bill on tax payers when those who employ them should pay all insurances and housing

far to many times these companies will pay low wages and the new folks end up being a burden on the rest showing they are not helping anyone besides the employer.

Yup - for openers any business allowed to hire illegals should be required to pay the schooling costs of the kids of that illegal. That's $10,000 per year per kid.

I'm sick of these companies that make a fortune off illegal workers while the social costs are dumped on the taxpayers.
