Can anyone explain why, with over 20 million Americans out of work or underemployed, and with about 20 million illegal immigrants in the US, we do not hear an outrage from Journalists, Activist groups, Congressmen, Unions, requiring that the illegals be sent home?After all criminalizing the employers who hire illegals would be the easiest and most humane thing to do. this would have the following effects, most likely:1. let the illegals go home on their own schedule2. open up 20 million jobs to unemployed Americans3 increase wages to levels which would allow the American working men and women to make a barely decent living.4. reduce the deficit as 20 million illegals are likely to cost 200 billion or moreon top of all the other advantages of crime reduction, education and health care crowding etc.
