The whole object of allowing illegal immigrants is that they can't be documented so employers don't have to pay them all that much, benefits, etc.
This is because they will do jobs that Americans aren't interested in for ridiculously low pay (indentured servitude, but I don't have the time atm
to go on for pages and pages qualifying that.) Bush has entertained giving certain illegal immigrants some "benefits" because they will then be
documented. This idea is quite debatable because...
1) You can now track them, make sure they aren't terrorists, etc.
2) You can tax them.
3) Terrorists are not going to apply for benefits, knowing they are tracked meaning perhaps a false sense of security.
4) How much are we willing to pay, sacrifice, whatever, to ensure we get cheap cherries and oranges picked by extremely cheap labor?
