We need to deport now to salvage our jobs here in calif. this is a huge issue but the state protects them by allowing them to be covered under workers comp which in turn allows the owners to hire them illegally and work them legally. The state doesnt care about if or not they are illegal as long as they are on payroll and they are getting their taxes from them. Calif. is a huge protector for undocumented immigrants and they must be stopped now!!!!

I agree with Tom. In southern Calif. we have a HUGE problem with illegal/undocumented workers. I deal with this almost daily. Case in point: I went to bid on a local motel with 60+ rooms, my contact said he doesn't care if I get all my workers from Tijuana, Mexico. To prepare and paint all areas, including ceilings in the main room, hall, dressing area, 1 closet, 3 doors and jambs, and a bathroom, low bid was $200. and he asked if I can beat that price. I laughed and walked away! Yes we have an illegal/undocumented problem!!
