Same Thing Here in Australia with Illegal Workers
Current mood: contemplative
Category: Writing and Poetry

Yep, I could write a book on my work
 Experiences and even be a jerk
 Report them to the Persons in Charge
  Or just take the Barge

Er, I still won't make the Poet in the Literature Game.
News from New York Times so Similar to what happens Here in OZ

Experts said the new rules represented a major tightening of the immigration enforcement system, in which employers for decades have paid little attention to notices, known as no-match letters, from the Social Security Administration advising that workers' names and numbers did not match the agency's records.

Illegal workers often provide employers with false Social Security numbers to qualify for a job.

Employers, especially in agriculture and low-wage industries, said they were deeply worried about the new rules, which could force them to lay off thousands of immigrant workers.

or visitor come as a "Relative" I use that for a better word to explain
They Supply the Worker with food & keep and a small wage similar to
Pocket Money, in exchange for a few hours per day of work.

I cannot afford to employ someone even on that basis, they would possibly
sit on their hands & expect me to wait on them, and not move when told to
 'go home,'   I have stayed with work associates where their 'boy friend'
would hang about the bathroom toilet chatting to his lover whilst I had to
walk around the ass to do a pee. 

If you invite one in, others may follow treating your home as the main street,
free to come and go as they please.
