Is an American life worth 7 times greater than an Mexican? Illegal immigration law enforcement.
The Red Herring Question of 'what about the illegals who exploit US welfare system' is why ICE only arrests violent criminal illegals and not screw with those who work. But why make it a crime to hire illegals? A very good read is chapter 19, 'On not being a Jerk' in the book 'The Big Questions' by Steven Landsburg about the benefits of immigration versus loss of wages by relatively rich Americans.
The argument for making the hiring of illegals, well, illegal is that it does take jobs away. Not just from Americans, but also from those immigrants who come to the US legally. There is also the fact that most illegals are not paid the same wages as legal workers, by requiring employers to verify status, you also require them to pay good wages, as well as offer benefits. Realistically, it benefits everyone if the laws are followed.
What is incomprehensible to me is the fact that an illegal would be hired in the first place. I know this happens, but why aren't green cards checked?? If all employers checked for these things when hiring, it would be better, but yet again, the employers who don't and are found with illegals in their employ lose their employees.
This has become as much as problem as the use of drugs. It should be a crime to hire illegals. Most definitely. How dare they come here to take the jobs of our own people who need the work and ARE citizens. Another mystery of US history.

So we must conclude that without saying it, some - many in America support it and do what they can to stop control of it. It would seem that this should be a target for midterm elections. Who does...

I want to write an article about illegal immigration and its effect on this country. I love people in general and I’m a legal immigrant myself (I immigrated here 28 years ago). However because of our “human rights” approach, affirmative action laws, and open door policy, we have invited some...

In my humble opinion, the Arizona immigration law is not racist. I'll tell you why. Yes, and this cannot be argued, most illegal immigrants in Arizona are Hispanic, but the law targets illegal immigrants, not illegal Hispanic immigrants. As a worker in a bank, I help illegal immigrants all the time...

Why else support illegals who are merely working the bottom of the food chain of employment ?
