    (waving to my patriot friends)

    Synopsis; Company 'wasn't aware' 70% of their employees were illegals (yeah,OK);500 applicants showed up for the 175 now-vacant jobs.

    175 Santa Rosa workers lose jobs in immigration audit | PressDemocrat.com | The Press Democrat | Santa Rosa, CA

    About 175 Latino workers at NeilMed Pharmaceuticals Inc. in Santa Rosa are without jobs following a probe last week into their legal status by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.


    Most of the workers resigned voluntarily after they were told they didn’t have proper documents to work in the United States, a company spokeswoman said.

    But a spokesman for the workers said NeilMed forced them to resign or have their cases turned over to federal authorities.

    Last week’s action purged 70 percent of the 250-employee workforce at NeilMed, a fast-growing company that makes nasal rinse products for sinus sufferers.

    Considering that the vast majority of European immigrants essentially had to just make it to Ellis Island to qualify for entry, your distinctions between legal and illegal immigration aren't especially "hard-hitting."

    While I am against illegal immigration I have to point out that in 1910 You could not enter this country illegally. Before the 20's there were no restrictions on immigration at all, Anyone could come. Yes they did go through channels and sign papers on entry, but there were not any legal road blocks to them coming in the first place.

    However that does not make it any less illegal when people ignore our current immigration laws.

    In the 20's we made laws controlling who and how many could come because we had to. It became apparent we could not just let everyone come or we would be quickly over whelmed with immigrants and not be able to keep up. That fact is only more true today than it was then. We simply can not just let everyone who wants to come here come.

    Mostly the spelling errors.

    Your grandparents were likely members of an ethnic or racial minority if there were active restrictions on their entry, otherwise your story is of dubious legitimacy. Merely "filling out papers" does not qualify as an entry restriction, incidentally. As Charles points out, there were few restrictions on immigration in that era. It was primarily a matter of simply making it to Ellis Island.

    Actually, it would probably be feasible to let everyone who wants to come here come. The fundamental core of the problem is the reason for the mass exodus from Mexico and other parts of Latin America. Have you ever wondered why there are no fences and guards at the California-Nevada border, yet there are no floods of migrants crossing into one from the other? Because there is no major wealth disparity between California and Nevada, as opposed to California and Baja California. It would probably be reasonable to have open borders, and the fundamental solution is reversing the huge wealth disparities between the U.S. and Mexico, primarily caused through trade liberalization.
