I'm sure that the SEIU will unionize the sweat shops to give more rights to illegal workers. America has a history of solving worker's problems. Union sweatshops would have better ventilation and adequate coffee breaks. There would also be a pension plan created for illegal workers. After thirty years in a sweat shop, an illegal can return to Mexico to live off the pension. There might even be implemented a stock option buy in to the sweatshop for illegals. I see so many positives in having illegals and a chanin of sweat shops throughout America. Some day the working privileges will be so good that Americans will want to work in the sweat shops.

Yes, they get paid more when they are legal. They also pay social security, federal income tax, school tax, can get on their employers health care plan, etc etc etc.
Maybe paying taxes will be more of an incentive for illegals learning to speak English. I see a 'good' domino effect by illegals being assimilated into the system.
What about the UAW? Workers making thirty five dollars per hour on the automobile assembly lines will be a thing of the past. Wages will get back down to under ten dollars per hour with illegals. Taxes on ten dollars is better than no taxes at all. Plus, that will bring the price of automobiles down considerably. Everyone in America can own a Cadillac.
It seems like in every thread on illegal immigration, there's always that one uniformed person who posts up the "our country was founded by illegals" argument.

There's been so many threads on Illegal Immigration in America, I really think it should have it's own section.
Each side to this argument seems to be unable to budge from their perspectives and has created some rather nasty infighting amongst some ATS members.
The only thing I can add:
No offence intended, but if you go back in history, we were all illegal immigrants at some time.
