Why is the blame only placed on the i****************s...?
All too often on this forum I see complaints about i****************s and how they come to this country and steal "Americans'" jobs (by the way, America is North AND South America), but why is no one getting upset with the companies that are hiring them....with the rich people that can more than afford to hire a legal citizen....or with the multi-million dollar companies sending their work overseas so they can pay children fifty cents an hour???? It seems to me that everyone that has a problem with illegal immigration should go to the source of their reason for coming...more opportunities for work which US CITIZENS are happily providing them! We are the only ones that call ourselves "American". In other languages we are referred to as "people of the United States". So I have a grip on reality, thanks. How about learning a couple of other languages so you can have a grip on the rest of the world rather than just "America"? :), I'm sorry...when did "illegal" become a "race"? I am the farthest thing from a racist you will ever meet. Race has nothing to do with this argument.

People are upset with companies and people who don't hire legally. But initially, the law breaker is he who is here illegally in the first place.

Illegals, companies and corporations, our government. Not necessarily in that order.

You don't know what the hell you're talking about. If you don't think people aren't upset with globalization, outsourcing and things like NAFTA you should do some research before ranting.

By definition 'illegal' immigrants are 'illegal'. The hiring of said immigrants is also 'illegal'. Both are equally at fault.
Answered By: muleyone - 6/15/2007
tell you what, you pay me and a bunch of Americans to sit at home and find out all the company's who hire illegals. and we will go boycott them. sound good? yes it's the company's fault for hiring them. but it is their fault for coming here and keeping wages low.
Answered By: irma c - 6/15/2007
They are upset with both. I see your point but it can also be turned around and said that if illegals did not cross the border then those companies wouldn't have any cheap labor to hire and thus those jobs would have to go to Americans. All depends on how you look at it. But yes they are upset with both... More

The way to judge the moral fiber of a person or a group is to examine how they treat the most powerless people they encounter. America's moral fiber is corrupt and decaying by the hour, which is why we treat the immigrants so very poorly. They don't have the means to fight back.

"By the way", most of us learned about the continent, America, many decades ago. We weren't idiotic enough to think no one else knew that and we didn't start trying to change well-known and traditional names of citizens of any country. Get a freaking grip.

Answer this, If you had a Company, not a large company but a small business and you could make a little profit if you hired an illegal vs. no one else wanted to work for the same wage, what would you do?

Oh we do get upset with the people who make them think that what they are doing is OK, Like to use this analogy when discussing illegal immigration, " when a dog p**s in the floor, do you give him a treat and say 'good boy' or do you stick his butt where he belongs, back outside" same with illegals we should round them...

Thanks for the Geography lesson. I don't blame the illegals that come here looking for a better life. And in some cases I don't blame employers for hiring them at lower wages. There are jobs that people in this country people will simply not do, even if the wages were good. Also, look at the unemployment rate. It... More

I am upset with the companies that hire them but, they tachnically are not doing anything illegal since most illegal aliens do provide them with the proper documentation that they want. It is not left to the local retailer to enforce immigration law. As many have said if the Illegal aliens weren't coming in, there... More
