Hi, I'm not going to post anymore on here because I'm taking a diabetic break from here for now but this came up more important right now.

A new Tennessee law that punishes employers who hire illegal immigrants appears to be generating fear and paranoia among some business owners, hiring managers and immigrant advocates.

Almost 50 people gathered in Southeast Nashville Wednesday evening for a public information session about the law, intended to stop employers from hiring workers who are in the U.S. illegally.

At one time, certain Southern 'employers' became EXTREMELY worried about the Emancipation Proclamation, figuring its implementation would spell the "doom" of their economy, and the devastation of their 'work force'.
After an adjustment period, they eventually 'accepted' its validity, and moved on.

If they didn't know they were doing something wrong then they wouldn't have anything to worry about, would they? Looks to me like they better start hiring American and documented workers!

Oh well: sucks to an illegal immigrant as well as his/her enabler.

This is just what National Republicans need, more alienating of Latino voters in 2008. Karl Rove is concerned and has said so himself.

Illegal immigration transcends political parties. Stop trying to make this a partisan issue.

Well Golly Gee - in AZ, it was the DEMOCRATS who passed this similar law -

Merely goes to show you - that when it comes to illegal immigration, and the lawlessness you support, the determination to stop it transends party lines.

Just a comment....illegal employees do not have benefits, so why "High Springs Gator" says "their employers should pay for their health" and other needs...they have to buy separately a health insurance and/ or pay regular insurance less fees for what they get.
Also most of them pay taxes that they never get back ( with the ITIN #)and of course do not complaint. A lot of people think they live or want to live for free, and it is just not the case, they are hard working people trying to get a better life without hurting anyone. If there was a possibility of getting legal even paying all kinds of fees and tickets, they would gladly do it because they know they are not doing the right thing.....I understand we all fight for what is ours, but give yourself an opportunity to get to know -closely- someone with a real story. I did it and that is why now it is not that I love them but I understand their situation....trust me, it is enough to leave your country and not being able to go back without dying of hunger....they really have a hard time!!!!
