How clever people are who stop by the 'street corner' to pick up a day laborer. Let's see...no taxes get paid....the workers aren't insured if they get hurt, the employer is vulnerable to being sued if they get hurt , nobody gets any training or job advancement, the law is being broken by all parties, wages for legitimate workers in the industry are reduced accordingly, technical innovation and improved productivity are slowed (cheaper to hire 4 mexicans than to invest in better tools and training for 1 legal worker, right?) our social services are being overwhelmed by these workers and their families, our medicaid system is being bankrupted (yes, they get free medical coverage at hospitals, even if they're illegal!) , their situation back home isn't improving any because they're not there fighting to make it better, and you're giving illegal aliens a way to support themselves within our borders without our permission. It's quaint when there are 8 million here and you only have to see them when you need your dirty work done. What will you think when it's 60 million and they're crowding the street corner in your neighborhood? Just because "everyone does it" doesn't make it right. Question. How many of the terrorists who killed about 6,000 of us last week were legal aliens? Answer: 0 Some of these terrorists in hiding hold undocumented positions doing menial jobs with contractors while they wait to act. The guy hired by a contractor "off the books" to clean out the airplane you will be flying on next week might just be an Arab Muslim. Have a nice flight. Hope he doesn't leave anything on the plane. The laws are there for a sound reason, despite people's desire to max out their income or save some money getting some odd jobs done. I wish people of all backgrounds with good intentions and character much prosperity and freedom, but I also wish they'd obey the law.
