If employers’ would just stop hiring illegals it would solve allot more problems than those that occur at work. Employers willingly hiring Illegal immigrants should receive heavy fines and banned from working on any state or federal jobs.

Hiring illegals has been going on forever. This is not something new. They do the jobs that lazy americans won,t do. Welfare has created a society of deadbeats. I say let them work. They earn their money and they also spend money.If they have proper ID what is the problem?

All along this issue has been about laws, not about how smart we think we are or how hard working illegals are. Stop breaking laws, or change the laws. I think all of us will agree to obey them either way, but it is a sad day for our country when laws are changed because of political intimidation. So we don't like speeding, how about we all just start speeding until the legislators gives up and change the law? Seems rediculous, look around it's happening with pot. How long before employers are forced to allow known pot smokers with traces in their system to work for them under some form of affirmative action. There's another word for all this. This is a more passive form of Terrorism. That's right, you heard it here first.
