How many Americans support Illegal Aliens by using their services?
Where I live many illegals operate small scrap businesses, and trucking companies, and food services, and construction businesses. It is hard to tell which ones hire illegals, and which ones don't, before using their services ask for citizenship verification of every person that will be working on the job. You wouldn't want a criminal remodeling your kitchen would you? It is not against the law to ask, and takes the guess work right out of play. When I walk into my local grocier, and the person behind the counter barely speaks English, I ask for a manager, take them to the side, and question the citizenship, I've even gone as far as insisting that a visa if there is one shown to me. It takes just a little effort on my part. If the police, and my government will not uphold my laws, I as a citizen am obligated to do so. Our police preach to us all of the time about reporting crime, and this appears to be the biggest crime in America. 20 Million Large By doing this I not only protect myself, but I protect the real immigrants by assuring they are getting the jobs, illegals are also stealing from them. I haven't heard much said on that issue. Your right it doesn't always work, but it puts the business on notice that you are checking them out. If gives the company a way to quietly fire the illegal, and hire a legal one.

I support them. I go to Mexican grocery stores, Chinese fish markets, McDonalds. I dont mind helping other people regardless of their status. I would do the same for Americans that were trying to better their lives in other countries.

I think it's great that you are taking matters into your own hands. I don't use any illegals for any services. My uncle owns a construction company and he will NOT hire illegals. I totally agree with what you are doing. I think it's awsome.

It does no good to ask for any type of ID for these illegals. Everything they have is bogus and forged. They don't know how to obey the law.

Are you going to stop buying food altogether, or how about driving on the roads, or going to the mall. Because in reality almost 80% of the food we grow and eat in the country is touched by "illegals" somewhere along the line. Construction companies employ huge amounts of "documented" workers with false papers and no... More

I don't use services or goods from illegals. Doing so would be participating in the commission of a crime since they are criminals and you would be helping to support them... More

You go girl! I don't use illegal labor, and we grow alot of our own food. If I had to have someone work for us(unlikely,as we do our own remoldeling and repair), I would certainly ask about their status and those of their workers.

Many Americans hire illegals, they work for cheap and also illegals get ahold of false papers. There is a racket going on here where I live, they buy ID cards and get SSN cards from these guys for a small fortune, which in turn means that someone is having their identity ripped off in the process. I think they need... More
