SEATTLE (AP) - A Washington state organic herb farm must pay $1 million for firing, then rehiring illegal immigrants following a federal audit.
A federal judge on Tuesday leveled the fine recommended by prosecutors against Duvall-based HerbCo International Inc. Three company officials, including Chief Executive Officer Ted Andrews, also pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges under a deal with the U.S. attorney's office.

This sums it up well.

Yes, and the illegal workers are equally guilty so they should also be jailed and then deported. You'd agree that would be fair, right? Bet that the latter won't happen though with Obama's hands off approach to illegal aliens unless they have committed a serious crime. I guess committing a felony by using fake or stolen ID's to work doesn't count at a serious crime though?

I wish they would close down businesses for anyone who hires illegals.

They will self-deport right? No cost to the tax payer that way.

They won't just as long as they can move on to another job and they will until e-verify is mandated in every workplace. That is what self-deportation is all about. Removing all incentives to remain here like jobs, benefits and birthright citizenship. As long as Obama has a hands off approach to those who haven't yet been "convicted" of a serious crime that will be another reason for them to stay.

Now I'll ask you again, shouldn't both the employer and those illegal workers be jailed and in the case of the latter shouldn't they be deported as our laws demand?

It is best to go after all the employers of illegals but also it's imperative that illegals lose the welfare handouts. No illegal should be given free health care, including the many maternity hospital visits which Americans really must pay for them.

Many illegals would not leave even if they never find another low paying job because once they are getting the Medicaid, Section 8, food stamps, WIC, etc etc they never want to work again.
