Let's Look At The Bigger Picture

While I don't agree with amnesty for illegal immigrants, and while I CERTAINLY don't agree with them getting healthcare that Americans AREN'T getting, I think people are forgetting about the other half of the problem: the companies hiring them.

Why is everyone (both Democrats and Republicans) forgetting about the companies? They are the ones HIRING illegal immigrants, paying them a smaller wage than Americans, yet they don't get any of the blame from the media or politicians. It's like when a woman has an affair with a married man, and the only one who gets ostracized by the community is the woman, when the man is the one who is married! WTH?

If you're going to blame people for driving down wages, blame EVERYONE involved, not just the illegal immigrants. These companies are making BIG BUCKS off of people for whom they don't have to provide health insurance or a livable wage. They need to be penalized for hiring illegal immigrants and not conducting background checks on every worker who applies for a job.

And don't give me that "It'll cost too much to do a background check for every person." nonsense. Either pay for the background check or pay the penalty for not following the law. Yes, background checks should be federally mandated. If they were, perhaps we wouldn't have as big an illegal immigrant problem.

But you know what? If not illegal immigrants in America working for pennies, it's non-Americans also working for pennies due to outsourcing. We need to focus on the companies! These companies who are claiming to be so AMERICAN. Which means the Republicans who gave the tax break to those companies outsourcing need to be ousted....

And since we're talking about illegal immigration..... why do we want to build a wall along the Mexico/US border when there isn't one at the Canada/US border? Some of you may say "Because Canadians aren't moving in here at such large numbers." But then you have to ask yourself "why not?" Is it because life is better for Canadians than it is for Mexicans? If so, THEN you have to ask yourself, why isn't Vicente Fox trying to make life better for Mexicans so they would WANT to stay in their own country???? Not only that, Fox encourages Mexicans to FLEE Mexico for the US. You're telling your own people to leave and go somewhere else???!! Something about Fox screams corruption....
