Question -
What is the process for someone who is already living and working in this country illegally to become legal?  Can the employer do anything to help?  These are your basic laborer jobs, no doctors or teachers.  I dont understand why so many come here illegaly.  
Thanks

Answer
WE have a number of 'guest worker' visas available for those who qualify.  Illegal aliens cannot become 'legal' while in the United States.  They must return to their home country and apply for a work visa.  Those that are here working already have violated several laws, in addition to being here illegally including fraud, using counterfeit documents, illegally working, etc.  Those that hire them are facing serious consequences as well.
