  1. I’m reading the above article, and the way it is written, and I am very disappointed with it…more-so a highly respected publication such as PBN has published it.
    The article comes across as saying OK, all these people are ILLEGAL, etc., etc… but, because somehow they have figured out a way of doing so, even though they are also working here illegally, it’s OK because they are paying taxes, generating the God Almighty dollar to be squandered by our corrupt, irresponsible politicians.
    As such we must WINK-WINK look the other way!
    May I suggest that the following to sites be visited and what is there read! Especially the Seniors League site and article how Illegals are now also able to SCAM Social Security Benefits!!!

  2. How are undocumented immigrants earning money at legitimate jobs and paying Federal and state income taxes? It is illegal to hire undocumented immigrants. No legitimate business is able to hire an undocumented immigrants. We have to ID and do a check on every potential employ to be sure they can legally work in the USA. So they must be paid under the table? Everything involved with this idea requires the breaking of many laws by employee and employer.
