Because the salary is not good enough to make it worth it for most Americans.

Auditing is “a far more effective enforcement tool,” said Mike Gempler, executive director of the Washington Growers League, which includes many worried fruit growers.
Unless said company is privately owned, such as a franchisee, or in an industry not subject to audit.

Exactly you never see advertisements for any of these jobs yet somehow the Mexicans just take them up the second they are available. It has to be word of mouth, the illegals operate on a network and relay to each other the best places to live undetected and close to where there are jobs

I noticed in the article one of the ex workers who is now legal bleating about the employers bussing in H2 ag visa workers to replace those illegals fired from their farms. "What will become of those of us already here" she asks.

Welcome to our world honey.

If no ameicans apply for these job, why not bring a temporary work force in to fill them and not let illegal aliens do them.

That's what they're doing, but I still haven't seen much evidence they TRIED to get "American workers" to fill the slots left by illegals.......more likely that they weren't prepared to offer a decent wage.

It was amazing though how FAST these employers managed to find out how to get themselves LEGAL temporary workers once the illegals got swept up and fired.

Deportation doesn't work. While the jobs are there, the deportees will just sneak back across the border because, even at low wages, it is much better than what is available back home.

Going after the employers is the right way to do it. If the illegal jobs dry up then the illegal aliens will be forced to return home. We already saw this when the economic crisis killed construction so lets have more of these audits.
