wow...that was quite a list...

yes it is. I'm sure there a points that some would disagree with, but even if it's not all true thats still alot of money.. More than those people contribute by far.

Hey, if a mexican is an "illegal alien", how do you define a "Legal aliens".
At least the immigrants aren`t flying in warplanes, or riding in armoured trucks, as "aliens" have done in Iraq.
Actually, over here in Europe, we have a similar situation, but we realised that the big incentive for illegal immigration was the number of wealthy people and companies that hire these guys.
We call them, in recognition of their hunger, "economic migrants".
I have a feeling that, in financial terms, whatever costs to the taxpayer there may be, it is more than countered by the extra profits made by the corporations and companies that hire these desperate humans.
Incarcerate a few ceo`s for hiring undocumented workers, and the problem would soon disappear.
Ah well, just "mi dos pesos."

I'm with you on stiff penalties on people and companies that employ illegal workers. The laws need to be enforced. That does not however negate the need to control our own borders. If the woman who was recently deported had been a Al Quada operative, what then? She worked cleaning commercial airliners. Also the low wage jobs that these people typicaly work dont make enough to cover the services they use. That is if they even pay taxes on their earnings. Two people I know personaly have had their earnings significantly cut because they cant compete with rivals who hire cheap illegal labor. I wish there was a more humane solution.

Obviously its true that cheaper labor undercuts people who try to "run legit" businesses.

The emphasis has to be on enforcing laws against the EMPLOYERS.

As you know, Shill, I am really on the fence with this topic and still have mixed views. I dont approve of legal slavery and exploitation. But I think I would come here, too.

I dont honestly have time to check and dispute the items you have listed, but the big picture is that it is something that has to be faced...somehow. Damned if I know how.

My problem also is that the solutions are ridiculous. Round up twenty million people??? How the hell would THAT work?
