Unless this is done nationwide, and for ALL companies suspected of employing illegals, they will simply seek employment elsewhere. Clearly, they left because they are here illegally. This is another example of illegals fleeing due to the mere threat of enforcement. Chipolte knew they were employing illegals, but until the risks outweigh the benefits, illegal employment will continue to flourish. Hopefully, this will open the door for college students and teens in this area unable to find even summer jobs due to the employment of illegals.

Good. I wish US immigration officials would audit more businesses more frequently and more aggressively. I bet you money these illegals will just find another shell to hide under in the meantime.

Mandatory E-Verify AND "silent audits" combined is the way to go..........

Leave them nowhere they can work illegally

Personally, I'd like to see them do this on a residential level to. If they see a group of workers they need to simply request to talk to the person who hired them and let them know the next time around they will need to see some type of contract agreement stating the workers are legal or an I-9. Otherwise let the fines and jail time start.

Yeehaw!! As a very frequent patron of Chipotle, I like knowing my money is going to go to a company that will soon abide by federal law!

There is a Chipotle around the corner from my apartment here in Minneapolis. I swear, every week there are new Hispanic employees. I don't know where the old employees went, they just vanish.

They did do a pretty big 'Chipotle bust' here a few weeks ago, though. There were a ton of protests to the firings.

This doesn't negate the fact that they make a mean burrito.

I agree with this too.

Speaking personally I stopped patronizing Chipotle when I heard they hired illegals. Same with Subway.
