Federal law says it's a crime to give aid to illegals. Apartments that give them rooms are engaged in a criminal conspiracy.

Ironically the district court dismissed the case as well as the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals. So once again, ya'll chasing your own tails again.

The first place that the DoJ should look to prosecute under RICO is at the agricultural corporations who knowingly hire “contractors” to provide them with illegal labor. They along with their industry organizations openly admit to hiring illegal aliens and they assist the contractors in setting up their businesses with the express intent of avoiding prosecution for hiring illegal aliens and tax evasion.

The real enemy are those that would sell their country for personal profit. They are no more an American than the mexican that slithered across the border last night!

So you hate people like Mitt Romney. He sold America down the river by outsourcing many many American jobs.

Obviously since the DoJ is doing nothing about it the Democrats have no intrest either. Illegal immigration is like abortion. Interests on both sides have too much to lose if the issue is ever resolved.
