Like I said, if I came here and said I was paying somebody to steal my neighbors porch furniture everybody would be pissed, but somehow think it's ok that they themselves are paying someone to steal tax money from everybody.
What kind of licenses are you talking about. Labor doesnít get licensed. And taxes???? We are talking $ figures that wouldnít even trigger a 1099 requirement.

B. Jersus, et al, wants to brand current ones as illegals, but can't describe what our Great-great grandparents were...if not the same thing (except for political numbers games....and politicized branding)
C. It is blatantly stupid to think that these immigrants are taking jobs from Americans. They are taking up the slack that welfare Americans choose not to hold. It really is that simple.
Dl The Black Caucus rules this country's politics, and when the Brown Caucus eclipses it in 20-25 years, then you'll see a true border war. until then, not going to happen because Whites have about 40 years left to be dominant. After that, the other caucuses will rule, and welfare will become interesting because votes = freebies won't match GNP.
E. If I can't get brown guys to do work for me, then i don't have much choice down here. The whites that don't have a job are meth-heads and won't show up for the second day, and blacks that don't have a steady job do their work at night, if at all. Jersus, don't knock what you don't know....and don't defend those that live here and fight like crazy to keep things as they are...which is keeping the border war going strong. BLM is an anthem.
F. HOW, you ask, are the meth-heads and porch-sitters living and getting their money for their habits? It is our welfare system that treats our citizens to this freebie bonanza while we cluck our tongues about,"illegals".

We have met the enemy, and they are us.
The reality that you liberals do not understand is that illegals are draining our economy. They are stealing jobs from legal citizens and further stealing from our economy by sending cash back to their countries of legal residence.

We need tougher immigration laws including the death penalty for being in the country illegally.

As for my family history, immigrated to the US legally.

I keep hearing this argument and I think it is totally wrong. I have legal documentation that all my ancestors, on both sides of my family, came here legally pre 1850. The town where I grew up and lived most of my life was settled by Scotch, Irish, and German, and 99.9 of the residents could verify there ancestors legal entry into the U.S.. That little town in Southern Indiana is now 23% Hispanic and every one is illegal except the anchor babies.

Maybe we should stop letting them in. I would rather they work than live on the dole.

exactly. I fully agree with stuff like e-verify, but nobody on earth has time to scrutinize day labor to that extent.

No, a labor employee doesn't get licensed because his employer does. You're trying to tell me the homeowners are getting the licenses and paying the taxes?

So, you are saying if I work 2000 hours for 51 different people at $15 per hour, I don't have to pay taxes? I didn't know that. That doesn't seem legal. <sarcasm>

This is a great video about it:

Pretty hard to pass up two very hard working men that will do anything in the course of one day and cost you two Franklins & a roasted $6 chicken from Publix. Groom your yard, trim trees, lay a pallet of mulch, then scrub and wax your boat when they're done in the yard, and do it all really well. Can't get that done for another grand, period.
The worst experience I've had was going to where the illegals gather, and pick two men that weren't immigrants (more like from an inner city if you know what I mean) they were a waste of money. Laziest humans I ever hired, not make that mistake again.

The best guys yet were from a Labor Finders type outfit in SD, used two guys for two days to do wheel barrel plus construction work, and they needed to have some carpenter skills. One guy was a carpenter, the other was an oilfield mechanic picking up a day or two work on his 'off period' (they work two weeks, off two weeks).. They were about $200 a day each and were insured.

I've done it and still do it both ways. Hire the illegals and used Labor Finders, both with success, and both with less than good results.

BTW: I am in favor of closing the border to all but commercial traffic... 100,000 illegals a month is absurd.

I really don't get the logic of people that don't want to stop them entering our country but don't want them to work while they're here.

While some number of the day workers may be illegal, I think itís a stretch to say they are stealing jobs or hurting the economy.
Itís pretty much a days work for a days pay, usually work that no one else wants to do,
labor.
Not paying taxes? Donít think thereís many who havenít worked or paid under the table at least once. Where do you draw the line?

what I'm saying is there is zero license requirements for a homeowner to self perform yard work or similar. Even if they temporarily pay for help in doing so. Unless perhaps you live in an area that requires a business license for a lemonade stand.

Do you understand that you are part of the problem?

Oh the irony!

Illegals can be useful, I gave one 50 bucks and a da sander and he removed all the bottom paint from my 23í cc. He looked like a smurf by the time he finished. Strange, havenít seen him at HD since.

Consider this. It's estimated to cost the taxpayer $8000 per year for each illegal.
Let the IRS catch a legal American citizen cheating them out of $8000 dollars of taxes once and see what happens.
The Federal tax on liquor is $13.50 per gallon. Does that mean they will let you make 590 gallons of moonshine before they arrest you?
How about cheating the state out of $8000 in sales tax. See where you end up. I bet it won't be catch and release.

Why do people think illegal's should get special treatment above American citizens?

You will find all you want. But I hope you don't.

Stop and consider; think of your countrymen right now overseas, servicemen downrange - right this second - suckin' it up to protect and preserve your society and civilization. Do you think your protectors running a raid tomorrow morning get a little bitter and dishearted thinking about the crap going on back home: the criminal invaders at Home Depot and the degenerates (shit bags) who hire them ? and the cretins in office who allow it all to fester unchecked ?

Ask me how I know this.
