Good deal. It's about time we started punishing employers that do such things.

And; there will be many more such arrests and convictions.

JesusisLord; are you listening? If I were you, I would seriously considering changing your 'hiring practices'-------assuming you are what you describe.

they did a sweep here.. in 3 days, they caught 2700 illegals just in our county alone. And our county only has a population of about 50,000. all were from mexico, so far as being identified/confirmed. They have not been able to fully check to see how many have been wanted because of the false documents and names. but 5 were arrested on felony charges stemming from previous dui's.. hit and runs, 25 were arrested on drug charges, 1 was wanted on child abuse. background checks and varifications are still pending on some.

In most places--------including even SF, Ca. $14 in hour is a living wage provided that 3-4 people rent a place big enough to live in and divvy up the rent.

BTW: $14 an hour in, say Kingman, Az is enough to buy a small home by one's self.

I know of a Taco Bell where two whites work (one is in High School, one is apparently in his 70's). The rest of the employees are "normal", though......
