I love "Mi Pueblo" and shop there when I can. It is my understanding that E-Verify was a recommendation from Homeland Security and not a "law". They were not forced to it. So, if the owner does not use it, he is not in any violation of the law. Regardless, I am in full support of the use of E-Verify in this case. Why? Because it is only being used for new hires. How do we fix a broken system if we do not put a stop to the influx of illegal immigrants? If not by setting barriers like E-Verify to deter new arrivals? I think this whole protest is very misguided.

I doubt anyone knows the story of the owner of "Mi Pueblo". Came to this country illegally and now owns a whole chain of stores.

And, what La Raza wants, La Raza gets. I'm surprised Janet Murguia was not the DNC chairperson. She and the Hispanic Caucus pull Obama's strings. If he fails to comply, they will threaten to withhold the Hispanic vote.

We haven't seen anything yet. They have already managed to successfully portray all opponents as racists and Nazis, and supporters as being moral, compassionate people. Wait until they start arresting citizens for the "hate crime" of opposing illegal immigration. Don't think for one minute this is farfetched.


I guess the only people who are opposed to E-verify are illegals over the age of 31 or those who can't qualify for work visas. It's as if hispanic illegals are opposed to hispanics that have work visas or are legally in the country are taking their jobs from them. LOL What will be the basis for their lawsuits? "They discriminated against me because I am an illegal without government protection and they gave the job to someone who can legally work."

So they are going to boycott the business. Where will they use their food stamps? At some big chain store that also implements E-Verify? What's the next demand, that businesses post signage "We Implement E-Verify" so they can avoid shopping or doing business with them?

There seems to be no end to the demands that illegals make and Obama bending to them.

Here is a article on the store owner and E-Verify controversy

E-verify is good for new hires but it doesn't go far enough, IMO. Employees already on the payroll should be checked on E-verify also. The only thing broken about our system is the enforcement part and removing all incentives to come here illegally including birthright citizenship unless at least one parent is a citizen of this country.

The lack of law enforcement and the pandering of democrats for votes (legal and illegal hispanic population) has emboldened their masses to the degree that not only do they have a false sense of racial superiority and entitlement but they actually believe that they are exempt from any laws that does not suit their agenda.

Excellent post!

watch the video! its hilarious the way these illegals actually think anyone is going to help them with this many Americans out of work.

"This is a state that is very immigrant, proud workers,and we believe we have the right to work at a decent place, not to be fearful of ICE or Homeland Security or anyone else," union organizer Gerardo Dominguez said.

^LOL



"They're not a friend of the immigrant community, but rather an agitator in the immigrant community," Fr. Jon Pedigo of Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish said. "By employing E-Verify and doing the kind of work that they're doing, they're instilling fear and division among the people."


^ WTF

*facepalm*

I agree. When only new hires are checked, it gives a pass to millions of illegals, which is why E-Verify should be mandatory for all employees. Unfortunately, due to illegal alien fraudsters, without biometrics, SSNs are useless for employment verification. Illegals have learned to stop using fake SSNs. They now primarily use stolen SSNs; and rather than only "borrowing" the number, they now steal the entire identity to pass E-Verify.

While we sleep, illegal alien crooks are wide awake scheming. If they spent half as much time trying to improve conditions in their homelands as they do on fraudulent methods to circumvent our laws and fleece U.S. taxpayers, they could seek (and find) their better life at home.

Well improving their own nations would require some work and even their own investment. Why do that when you can expect a free ride provided by the American taxpayers?

Why build up your own country when you can just demand that you be handed the easy life in the USA which was already built by other people?
