They were not being abused at all.
My point, however, even if my details were fuzzy, was that if companies aren't even following the laws that we have, why should we expect them to turn all ethical on us if the laws were removed? I don't believe that companies flouting employment laws by smuggling in illegal workers who can be paid a pittance with no recourse is a justifiable use of civil disobedience.
Btw, I agree that people should be able to immigrate anywhere they want.
