Umm, how? Could we discuss in more details how burdensome it is to enter a person's documents into a website. Well, you need a computer and internet access. And how long do you think per employee. 15 minutes? An hour?

How big a burden are you anticipating?

...what. So the Federal government is de facto a willing participant in illegal immigration. They are on purpose letting millions of them work (and yes, displace American workers or at least drive down their wages) while show deporting a few thousand of them.

This is actually a reasonable argument for amnesty. De facto, the federal government has allowed these people to stay, sometimes decades, and have children here. They shouldn't be kicked out.

Then why don't we let these people in openly instead of forcing them to be a permanent underclass? Do you think there should be any limit to the numbers allowed through?
