From the report I read, federal authorities were tipped off due to structuring where large quantities of cash out of the bank each week in order to avoid the IRS 8300 rule. If the amount is under $10k cash then the transactions don't have to be reported.

I say prosecute each one of the family members, Dennis Haskert GOP congressman received a 15 month sentence for the same violation.

Employers do not need to use e-verify for its "contractors." The fact the meat processing company paid the workers cash under the table is a dead giveaway, plus payroll taxes are not collected (and paid) to the federal and state governments.

I would love to receive cash instead of paying taxes and dealing with the IRS, and I am sure many others would love to avoid taxes, too. Ah, the burden of being a US citizen.

Employers are totally at fault. They want cheap labor and they know itís helping their bottom line. I donít care how high the wall is they are still coming as long as the employers hire them.

The good walls keep fewer from coming here and that's the point. They aren't all coming here for jobs either. Our government is also at fault for not securing our border.

Many employers hire a subcontractor who is a citizen. He then hires illegals and pays in cash. Then all can say 'OMD,I had no idea they were illegal'
I have covered this many times. It didn't work for Wal Mart. These excuses for the government not coming down on employers harder are just that, excuses.
