THANK YOU!!!!!
Another small businessperson, who is getting the SHAFT, by NOT hiring illegals!!!

I "feel for ya", honestly....you're getting screwed by your own government for trying your darndest to obey the law....

See, Dane needs to stop by and visit planet Earth once in a while....then maybe he'd see the light......

Thanks for the heads-up. It's getting pretty obvious that a lot of the people on this forum don't know the difference between a constitutional republic vs. a banana republic.

GWB and Rove (Wormtongue) did the think that this would be as big of a hornets nest as it is. We need to keep the pressure up.

The problem is, neither the businesses nor the immigrants pay the full costs of immigration - the massive increase in educational costs from the influx of non-English speaking and special-needs children, the increase in crime, the increase in uninsured people needing health-care, etc.. Illegal immigrants don't generally earn enough to pay significant amounts of state tax; which means the rest of us pick up these costs. Thanks, but I'd rather see the meat-packing industry and the hotel industry pay higher wages to hire native-born Americans, and pay the higher prices for meat and hotel rooms, than pick up the tab in my tax bill.

Perfectly said and exactly correct.

That's Amnesty.

Naw, it depends on what the meaning of "is" is !!!

What utter horsepoop the "not amnesty" folks are trying to sell. I thought we got rid of that with Klinton.
