Just curious...are they "dirtbags" (your
descriptor) because they are illegal, or because they are Mexican?
People who want these people are sick in the head and should go live with them and get the hell out of the United States...
Why? Because your o-so-brilliant and insightful analysis says so?
I work with many Mexicans in the construction trades. The ones I know have taxes, such as SSI, taken out of their pay by their employers...benefits
they will never be able to collect on, by the way.
Sure, poor/uninsured people do
provide a heavy drain on social services...but you don't have to be an illegal to do that.
If you want to make a real difference in America's financial problems, try going after the "underground economy", that most red-blooded of American
"institutions" which drain billions
of dollars from the tax base every year. And that means, primarily, going after employers...cash under
the table doesn't only go to illegals. It is the common way of doing things in many of the non-union trades, whether the employee is "legal" or
I've seen so much ripping off of the system by employers in 30 years in the trades, that I have a very hard time classifying illegal workers as
"dirtbags"...they are simply filling a need provided by our own homegrown "Capitalists".
