One BIG difference in your point....Christ was not breaking laws ! ! !

So if you think that I would have been one of those who were yelling to "Crucify Him", you are presuming a lot. I am also resuming that you really do not even know what a Pharisee is. Please know what you are talking about before you post.

I want to hold a candle light vigil for those that lost jobs due to Swift giving those jobs to Illegal Immigrants. I would also like to include in that vigil that American United States, Utah taxpayer for having to pay for the benefit packages and food stamps that the Illegal Immigrants that worked for Swift, used while they were working for them.

Why leave Jesus out? He is the Savior of all mankind. That you might not like it is of zero consequence.

Don't punish the illegals, punish those who hire them.

Illegals wouldn't be here if they couldn't get jobs.

If the jobs go away, the illegals will leave of their own accord.

The solution is never as complicated as those in government would like us to believe.

DF, punish BOTH the worker and the employer.
But it's hard to hold the boss to account when our politicians refuse to make E-Verify mandatory. Leave them a gaping loophole and they will take it.
In the end the root problem is the same; special interests getting there way while the laws of the land are trampled upon.

Re: "its [sic] funny that people say liberals,bout [sic] this article when most companies that hire illeagal [sic] people are conservative and pay the sub par wages."

History shows it's primarily the liberals -- like Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, Barbara Boxer, Harry Reid, and most of those President Clinton nominated to serve as judges and high government officials -- that pay those sub-par wages to the illegals they hire.

It's really entertaining to watch the liberals bob and weave, trying to making cogent arguments out of emotional outbursts.

They really ought'ta rethink trying to weave religion into their arguments. They're too unfamiliar with both the language and the concepts, and their ignorance just makes 'em look silly.

Jesus and his family were undocumented immigrants to Egypt. Would you throw Jesus out of the country as well?
