Illegal immigrants are tolerated in the United States in part because of an unofficial pact between big business and the federal government, according to Peter Salins, a professor of political science at Stony Brook University.

"[There] was kind of an agreement, [an] unholy agreement perhaps between the American business community and the federal government,'' Salins told "The Steve Malzberg Show'' on Newsmax TV.

"The Social Security Administration knows quite precisely where the illegals are.

"[But] every time they have tried to contact the employers [about] fraudulent documentation that's been submitted, they got howls from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and from the immigrant advocacy groups.''

Salins — author of "The Smart Society: Strengthening America’s Greatest Resource, Its People,'' published by Encounter Books — added that the answer to immigration reform in 2014 is compromise.

"Both left and right have to come together and the deal would be this: really stringent enforcement … We have the laws on the book and we can strengthen those laws,'' he said.
