Mr. Bacon seems to respect those who entered illegally more than those whose Social Security numbers were stolen and used illegally.
As one who has been a victim of identify theft and having my Social Security number stolen, I feel no remorse for weeding out those who know full well that entering this country illegally is... well, illegal. The employers need to be fined also for their participation in this scheme of relying on cheap labor.
We have over nine visa programs already on the books for hiring workers in industries in need. Only problem is, employers do not want to take the time to abide by the visa rules, and then at the last minute go out and hire illegals at slave labor wages.
Georgia has passed tough immigration laws, and the illegals have left by the droves for other states. And when the Swift company did fire the illegals, American workers lined up for those jobs after the pay was raised. Yes, they will leave on their own accord, once we as a nation stop rewarding illegal behavior with benefits like free education for their children, and free emergency room medical for the family as a whole.
So what if they pay into Social Security and receive none back? Maybe those extra funds will go to pay for the closed hospitals, overcrowded schools having to hire bilinqual teachers, stolen identity fraud, proliferation of MS13 gangs, drug trafficing and expanded welfare programs.
