Do you think part of the illegal immigration problem, is that our own companies keep hiring the illegals?
If all these companies just stopped hiring the illegal immigrants and simply reported them, there wouldn't be much of a problem would there? Yes they do illegally cross the border, but then they go looking for a job, and of course they get hired. The Mexicans cross the border because they KNOW they will get hired by someone here in the U.S. They wouldn't bother walking through the dessert if they knew they wouldn't get a job here. Don't you think the problem is a 50/50 thing? It's the Mexican government's fault for not doing something about the poor in Mexico, and it's also our fault because we let these companies hire the illegally in the first place.

Of course, I agree. It's like the ? who was first, the chicken or the egg? They both play a part.

The reason they are being hired is because there is a terrible labor shortage in the US. It will get much worse in 2012 when there will be two Baby Boomers retiring for every new worker. It's all economics. We need more labor--and there are not enough young Americans to fill the shortage.

yes, your right. the company's that are hiring them should be held accountable. maybe Americans should boycott the company's.

Companies are going to hire illegals at much lower wages and no benefits rather than citizens who want more money and benefits until the government starts imposing fines big enough to make them hurt if they ge t caught.

I agree with you entirely, except it's hard to change something that's been going on (on both sides of the border) for a hundred years. For instance if your family were farmers for several generations who relied on the cheap labor of illegals, should you go out of business to set the situation straight? You would say... More

Yes I think if companies had to pay stiffer fines such as say 250,000 dollars a head plus fines for violating minimum wage requirements since the main incentive to hiring illegal immigrants is that they work cheaper there would be far less incentive to hire illegal aliens.

I agree with the companies need to stop hiring them. But if they stop they will go out of business. We are short on workers. But it's not because of the lack of workers. It's because some people are lazy. They rather let the government pay them to sit at home. Than go out and get a job. But don't get me wrong, not all... More

Don't blame President Fox for the extreme poverty in Mexico. There is only so much wealth within a given country, & Mexicans control much less than half of theirs. The rest is controlled by the same corporations, mostly in the US, who benefit from the large, cheap labor pool of illegal immigrants. Fox can only do so... More

Employers of the illegal need to either go to jail or get deported as well. That would definitely stop them from hiring illegals.
