Some great replies guys! It is infuriating knowing that something should be done, that something CAN be done, yet it is ignored by those in power who could make a world of difference. There are millions of illegals all across the states and millions of unemployed citizens. This is so wrong on so many levels. The greedy corporations are ruining America.
Where is The America I grew up in? What has my country become? To favor an illegal who steals identities, uses false documentations and works the system for all it's worth, and our government allows this? Our government ignores its own legal law abiding citizens?

20 million illegal immigrants in this country? That number is from 2003!
Some sources say there could be as many as 50 million inside our borders right now. 50 million illegal immigrants! Let's say 20% of those 50 million people have a job that a legal US citizen could have and would gladly take if they could get it. That is 10 million potential jobs that US citizens could have. That would cut the unemployment rate by 1/3. That is true only if just 20% of the illegal population have a job. If the % of the illegal population that have jobs is higher, then the unemployment rate would fall even futher. This is just simple math from a simple guy.
Now, to answer the question as to why politicians have not stopped this!
3 out of every 10 illegal immigrants that make it in to this country that we even know about, have a ( burlap sac strapped to their back with simple rope) and inside each one of those sac's is 10 to 15 keys of coke or other drugs. Do the math on the the street value.
Corruption goes all the way to the top of the Flag Pole! And as for these book deals all new and out going politicians are getting, this is just a creative way to hide bribes and payoffs to these politicians.
It is funny, that Obama had a book deal before he was even elected. It is as if they are writing the story before it happens and then try to follow it. Or make it up as they go along.

Millions are homeless because of Wall Street.
Tens of millions are unemployed because of Wall Street & criminal employers.
When is enough, enough?
When do people get pissed off, stand up & make some political heads roll out of their offices?
It will not get any better & it will only get slowly worse if you do nothing.

night star. afaik, the illegal immigrants are coming over to the us because there is a demand for the work they are prepared to do at the wages being offered.
theyre not coming over to become microsoft or at&t ceos or even burger king employees.
even if you managed to stop illegal immigration completely, there will still be unemployment and there will still be jobs that business owners need filled that they arent willing to pay high wages for.
if you really want to solve this problem. you should stop the large corporations from outsourcing, and moving their manufacturing operation overseas.
what happened to "Proudly Made in the U.S.A"?
