In theory.
In fact, actually. Does ICE catch every Thomaso, Ricardo and Geraldo cutting lawns? No.
But illegals are subject to arrest and deportation, despite your claims to the contrary.
This investigation was instituted under Obama and what happened to those illegals after they were processed?

They were returned to work.

What happened to the employer? Nothing.

And this is one business out of tens of thousands.
Businesses who hire illegals are no less the victim of those illegals, as are drug-users. Which one is more criminal? The drug dealer or the one who purchases the drug from the dealer?

A comparison can be made between an illegal alien, and a drug pusher: If there were no drug dealers, there would be no drug users. Similarly, if there were no illegals, companies would not be hiring illegals.

It's that simple.
This is why the issue will never be dealt with. In reality the businesses are the dealers.
It wouldn't have been dealt with under any other administration. But President Trump is dealing with it: A nice wall, ICE arresting the little fuckers, Working with other countries to keep them from coming here, Mexican tropps on the border, and other things the President has done to make them think twice about trespassing here.

Cut off the supply of illegals into this country, and nobody will be hiring them.

There are as many coming in as there ever were.

Yet another claim made as though it were settled fact. The fact is you have no idea if what you claim is so or not.
Grow up! Common sense would tell any honest person, but not you, that Trump has closed down the border to a degree (he could certainly do more it seems) so your comment is bullshit on it;s face!

There just aren't as many people coming across the border anymore.

Why should illegals have political representation?

No clue how the court will respond, but it's an easy enough question.

U.S. Supreme Court to hear Trump bid to exclude illegal immigrants from representation
Why? Because that's what the Constitution call for.

The U.S. Constitution empowers the Congress to carry out the census in "such manner as they shall by Law direct" (Article I, Section 2). The Founders of our fledgling nation had a bold and ambitious plan to empower the people over their new government. The plan was to count every person living in the newly created United States of America, and to use that count to determine representation in the Congress.

Census in the Constitution.

A census counter is completely unable to determine who is here legally or not at that. This is just another case where the government tries to blame others for it's failures.
Yet the US never counted Indians, because they weren't citizens. Their actions speak louder than some so-called interpretation 200 years later.

It wasn't interpreted 200 years later. Native American's intentionally started to be counted in 1860.

Only after Indians signed treaties and acknowledged American sovereignty. There is no such recourse available for illegal aliens. The United States government exists to represent and serve American citizens. Illegal aliens are represented by the governments of their home countries. As such, only US citizens should be counted in regards to the distribution of US tax dollars and representation in the US government. We don't need 'interpretation' when we can simply look and see what the Founders' actually DID.

We have covered over and over what people feel "should be". There is an avenue for you to see to that. Get started.

Its not a matter of should be or not, it is WHAT WAS, when the Founders were alive. No need for 'liberal' interpretation of what they think should be. This is precisely why liberals fear a conservative court.

roberts is and the dem 3 are going to rule against it-------Maybe the other five will use some common sense and morals.
How is it "moral" to encourage more people to violate the laws of this country, by coming across the border illegally? Because that's what you're doing when you allow criminal aliens representation.

If that's your definition of "common sense", remind me never to ask you for advice. You seem to be completely lacking in it.

The Constitution serves US citizens, why would I be concerned? Only a hack liberal court would rule that illegal aliens should have any influence as to how US tax dollars are spent or who represents US citizens due to the census.

Save you're feigned "surprise" for birthday parties, Bubba. Nobody but the despicable Democrats want the courts to legislate. That's why we call them "Liberal hack judges legislating from the bench."

Conservative judges don't "create" law, they reinforce the original intent of the the existing law, which is the U.S Constitution.

Don't tell me you've never heard them referred to as "constitutional originalist judge." Surely you have and for the next few decades, you'll come to understand what the term "constitutional originalist judge" means.

That's your imagination. I want the court to rule as the Founders intended, not acting out some liberal wish list without recourse.

The Constitution is plain and simple when it notes "All". There are no exceptions to that. Are you not saying you want the court to read exceptions where there are none?

Sure, you want the court to create law. That's not a surprise.
Save you're feigned "surprise" for birthday parties, Bubba. Nobody but the despicable Democrats want the courts to legislate. That's why we call them "Liberal hack judges legislating from the bench."

Conservative judges don't "create" law, they reinforce the original intent of the the existing law, which is the U.S Constitution.

Don't tell me you've never heard them referred to as "constitutional originalist judge." Surely you have and for the next few decades, you'll come to understand what the term "constitutional originalist judge" means.
The Constitution is plain and simple when it notes "All". There are no exceptions to that. Are you not saying you want the court to read exceptions where there are none?
The Constitution applies to the US Government and US citizens, nobody else. Sort of like how Nigerians can't demand our rights in their courts.

Why should illegals have political representation?

No clue how the court will respond, but it's an easy enough question.

U.S. Supreme Court to hear Trump bid to exclude illegal immigrants from representation
Why? Because that's what the Constitution call for.

The U.S. Constitution empowers the Congress to carry out the census in "such manner as they shall by Law direct" (Article I, Section 2). The Founders of our fledgling nation had a bold and ambitious plan to empower the people over their new government. The plan was to count every person living in the newly created United States of America, and to use that count to determine representation in the Congress.

Census in the Constitution.

A census counter is completely unable to determine who is here legally or not at that. This is just another case where the government tries to blame others for it's failures.
Yet the US never counted Indians, because they weren't citizens. Their actions speak louder than some so-called interpretation 200 years later.
It wasn't interpreted 200 years later. Native American's intentionally started to be counted in 1860.
Only after Indians signed treaties and acknowledged American sovereignty. There is no such recourse available for illegal aliens. The United States government exists to represent and serve American citizens. Illegal aliens are represented by the governments of their home countries. As such, only US citizens should be counted in regards to the distribution of US tax dollars and representation in the US government. We don't need 'interpretation' when we can simply look and see what the Founders' actually DID.
We have covered over and over what people feel "should be". There is an avenue for you to see to that. Get started.
Its not a matter of should be or not, it is WHAT WAS, when the Founders were alive. No need for 'liberal' interpretation of what they think should be. This is precisely why liberals fear a conservative court.
The Constitution is clear. Why do you fear that? Don't you want a court that will rule on what the Constitution actually states?
The Constitution serves US citizens, why would I be concerned? Only a hack liberal court would rule that illegal aliens should have any influence as to how US tax dollars are spent or who represents US citizens due to the census.

That's not true but I expect you know that.

Beyond the legal protections when they are arrested? Base protections offered on our soil have nothing at all to do with benefits received by our citizens and their tax dollars. At the same time, illegal aliens can't vote, citizens can. As this is a matter of votes, and the census, which confer benefit to the citizen, not protection due to proximity, illegal aliens don't count as 'all'.
