    Then they HAVE a SS number, JACKASS!!! But fake ID can be traced, it can cause conflicts in the system and pop up for alert. After they are long gone, the Fed shows up and it is the employer who has the explaining to do. If I was an employer, I would simply pay them under the table, so much simpler for all. If it is done regularly with false ID, then either the employer is an idiot or the Fed is in on the take. Why do you think we have so many lobbyists for Mexico??? Going across the border is FREE, if you have the means, it is only expensive for those who need help getting here, and crossing the border is so easy, 10-20 million illegals have already done it. Boy, you would be a one smart fellow if you weren't so stupid.

    Both party's have abandoned us.

    BOTH party's always give a better deal to the rich & corporations.

    Check how they vote not on what they say. then decide. very few farmers left its mostly big corporations now.

    Much more effective is if the Feds actually bothered to prosecute the CEO's of the companies hiring them, and crack down on contractors as well. That will get rid of 80% of the problem, and without having to round anybody up; they would self-deport. Throw in prosecuting those states that spend Federal welfare grants and other subsidies on criminal illegal aliens and we're pretty much done with a 'border problem' outside of the drug and prostitution gangs and the professional thieves and robbers.

    Well, the stats are that only about 4% of farm workers are H2A's, so good luck trying to find the other 96% who are invisible to the 'system' for any practical purpose. The SS administration has no real budget for enforcement, and that is because all these pols on both ends of the spectrum make all kinds of noises in speeches but never provide a budget for enforcement that actually means anything; they're fond of unfunded mandates. H2A's also overstay their visas as well, some 25% or so do, lower than the average of 40% for the tourist visas and the like, but still pretty high.

    Anybody care to guess at what the AG's budget is for investigation and prosecution of labor racketeering and sweat shop practices are? Want to bet it's never been more than a fraction of percent? Same for DHS, despite all the noise made by their PR flacks.

    Contards like you are always hoping for a race war, so you think you will be able to legally shoot the non-whites.

    Not that you actually would have the balls to do anything but whine in your basement.

    But hey- Picaro gets to drive small farmers out of business, and then stick Americans with the costs of educating all of those driven out of business because you prefer family farms to be driven out of business rather than have legal immigrant agriculture labor.

    Just pointing out again- that this entire thread is premised on Blackrook's lie regarding what he said a farmer said.

    But he lied.

    The farmer- a Trump voter- said he could not find Americans to pick apples- and never supported illegal immigration at all.

    Or maybe not intelligent.

    There are some unintelligent English speakers that can't even speak English.

    And then Trump hires foreign workers for Mara Lago- under the H2B visa program.

    Without worrying one bit whether or not H2B visa workers overstay their visas.

    Nor any concern from Trump about a budget for investigation of this program?
