My issue with illegal immigration is the cost in terms of crime, healthcare, cultural warfare, vote fraud, etc. But the money they earn working is all theirs...
They are criminals. Under our system of law what a criminal makes plying his crime is not his, but is confiscatable by the state. It has always been this way, albeit nowadays it is being applied to actions that are not "crimes".
However, breaking and entering the US and violating its borders has always been and remains a malum in se offense.

Actually, as somebody kept pointing out to me, I think illegal immigration is a misdemeanor violation of a Federal Regulation - more like speeding or littering than a felony. It woudl be nice if the Feds took it a little more seriously.
In terms of crime however, I'm more interested in the fact that illegals seem to commit felonies way out proportion to their population.
