The illegal immigration issue isn't so simple

I understand the passion and frustration with the illegal immigration issue, especially in these hard economic times.

However, the choice Bob Kellar and the Minutemen passionately promote is an unquestioned, resolute belief in America or tolerance of illegal immigrants.

This is where I part company with the argument. Private free enterprise and competition produce lower-costing quality goods and services. For many of us, what can be more American than this?

Yet many loosely regulated, private American corporations, and the private American banking institutions that support them, turn the other way when illegal immigrants are used in the name of lowering their costs and increasing their profits.

In this American system, what citizen can resist buying quality goods and services at such affordable cost?

A dose of reality about America tends to mute passionate slogans and answers.

Kellar and the Minutemen have targeted a specific population as the source of the problem.

My questions to them are these:

What specific, private American corporations and banking institutions, who engage in these activities, have you targeted for tighter regulations to curb the loopholes that permit them to lure illegal immigrant employment?

And how would you help keep costs of goods and services affordable once they are regulated?
