A lot of business owners benefit by hiring undocument workers because they can pay them less. And because they really do the jobs that most natives won't do, they continue to work in large numbers Thus, employers don't always check for that sort of thing

Of course there are 20 million..probably more even.. they are the people picking the vegetables you buy from the grocery store and cleaning your hotel rooms. The government doesn't demand that employers verify citizenship for a job, and there is reasoning behind it.. the illegal situation has gotten too out of control... More
