Why don't we ever blame the corrupt employers who hire illegal immigrants?
It's the evil immigrants. It's always their fault. It's their fault you can't afford to send your kids to college. It's their fault your healthcare claim got denied. It's their fault gas is $4 a gallon. It's their fault there are no decent jobs in your city and you have to work at Wal-Mart for $8 an hour. Have to keep sending them to jail. Forget about our precious employers, they can do no wrong, right?

i would say you're lazy and choosy, then put the blame on someone else.

Would we be willing to blame ourselves for insisting on bargain basement prices that can only be had by forcing them to either hire someone under the table or by having the product made over seas at slave labor wages? Here's a reverse spin on it for you, blame the labor unions for driving up the cost of everything...

No, I don't blame the immigrants for wanting to work. I do blame the people who hire them and take advantage of their status and treat them like slaves. They have no health care when they pay them under the table, so they get welfare and it becomes the tax payers problem, and that is just wrong. The rich get richer... More

Craig, you're exactly right. All that has to be done is for us to start seriously punishing employers who hire undocumented workers and our immigration problem would mostly go away... More
