Actually Relentless, no I do not go around asking and I do not assume if they are white they are illegal. I actually work and own part of several business's that work with or serve many local, regional and nationwide business's small and large. Most have many illegals employed somewhere within their ranks and they know it. What makes you think I am white? Why the hate and name calling? There are better ways to discuss other points of view. Spirited discussion and compromise is how this nation became great. It's ok to have disagreements, it's not ok to ack like a total tool, to everyone that doesent agree.
