That is obviously not the answer to the illegal immigrant issue. I truly believe that if you are working and paying taxes that you should be allowed to stay. Funny thing is that most ardently opposed to immigrants believe that we will end up paying for them and their family. Well in this case we will because the primary bread winner is deported while the rest of the family can stay.....becoming tax payers responsibility. Sad thing is that by law anyone here illegally broke the law coming here, but being here is not illegal. Then you have families that are allowed to pay taxes being illegal, but can be deported anytime. That doesn't even make sense to me. Why in the world would you pay taxes when doing so would alert the government the you are here illegally? The issue is so convoluted.

Indeed it is my friend. Men much smarter than I need to sit down one day and come up with immigration reform that's innovative and fair for all that's here now and those that want to come to America to have a better life and obey our laws.
So if hes paying the going rate in rural Georgia, why is he hiring illegals? The rate is good enough for the Mexicans, but not good enough for the Georgians? There is no hatred of the rich here....there is only hatred of the illegal and immoral people you bring to the board and cloaking them as innocent victims. A state with a nine percent unemployment rate, and your supposed saint, is hiring illegal aliens.
Whats his "product" by the way...in rural Georgia where this factory exists?
What are you talking about? Apparently you just intend to be an ass. I live in Georgia am telling you that $10 to $12 per hour for unskilled labor is not unfair. BTW I do not live in RURAL Georgia and this unfortunately is fair wages.
He's saying that if the guy is paying the going rate for labor then why does need to hire illegals?
Because we have lazy asses that would rather collect an unemployment check for 6 months, use food stamps etc to make ends meat. Illegal immigrants don't have that option. They don't work, they don't eat. Our government makes it easy for Americans to stay lazy and unemployed. I know several people who do this. I'm sure there's several hundred more I don't know that does this. They work the required 140 days, take volunteer layoffs and reap the benefits of unemployment the rest of the year at our expense.
Hell of a argument you got there. Really? Really?
My ancestors still became citizens and followed the laws of the land. Unreal.
Again if you have a problem with this I guess you voted for Romney? Because Obama supports this behavior you speak so bad about. No personal responsibility. Just let the government take care of you.
I didn't take sides. I'm just pointing out that those non-union $12/hour jobs are pretty damned good for some people, and you can't treat them like victims when they broke international laws and rode in trucks with Ben Stiller to get the work.
I think the point Stache is making is that we have to change the law. These people aren't, for the most part, taking many jobs from others willing to the same work for a reasonable salary. They fill a need we have in our work force and we should figure out a better path to allow them to stay here. Even H2B guest worker programs would work. How many people in this board would pick fruit or drive a shovel all day for $10-15/hour? This another example of the government getting in the way of a good thing.

You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
No what you are ACTUALLY saying is, you made this entire thing up, in order to feed your trollish self. Got any more fairy tales to tell us?
No but believe whatever you need.
