The ordinance, if approved by the full city council would require home improvement stores that are 100,000 square feet or larger to set aside space for illegal aliens seeking employment from the store’s customers. Furthermore, the store owners would be required to provide the illegal aliens they are being forced to harbor with drinking water, bathrooms, tables and chairs and trash facilities.

The term “Harboring” as it relates to U.S.C. Section 1324 of Title 8: US CODE: Title 8,1324. Bringing in and harboring certain aliens is defined as any conduct that tends to substantially facilitate an alien to remain in the United States illegally. Specific knowledge by the store’s owners that individuals using the supplied space for day laborers are, in fact, illegal aliens is not required. Under the provisions of federal law if a reasonable person could logically suspect that any of the individuals who are using the store’s supplied day laborer space are illegal aliens and the owner takes no action to impede the illegal alien’s use of his or her property, the store owner’s failure to act appropriately can be considered as reckless disregard of federal law. Store owners acting in reckless disregard of the knowledge or reasonable suspicion that their facilities are being used by individuals who have violated federal immigration law by entering the country without legal authorization, or by individuals who have entered the country with legitimate visas that are now expired, is committing a federal felony and may be subject to criminal fines, imprisonment up to five years, and forfeiture of vehicles and real property used to commit the crime. Furthermore, private persons and entities may initiate civil suits to obtain injunctions and treble damages against enterprises that conspire to or actually violate federal alien smuggling, harboring, or document fraud statutes, under the Racketeer-Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO). The pattern of racketeering activity is defined as commission of two or more of the listed crimes. A RICO enterprise can be any individual legal entity, or a group of individuals who are not a legal entity but are associated in fact.

The Only insanty is not understanding what the LA City Code would ask Home Improvement Companies.

The City Code does not ask Home Improvement co. to set aside an area for illegal aliens to do day labor as this webblogger states. the blogger says...

How does this blogger come up with the idea that a store owner is to "logically suspect" a day laborer a illegal alien. what an idiot.

If anyone suspects their neighbor is using day labor it is quite easy to call the City to come check for permits. I have no problem ratting out a traitorous neighbor if they are using Illegal Aliens. We had one neighbor down the street that had to redo a roof as there was no permit. The problem really wasn't the permit it's the fact that it wasn't up to code and the person buying from this flipper would have gotten ripped off.


Let the criminal enablers beware.

This ordinance has nothing to do with neighbors roofs or traitors. The blogger is upset because he believes a store owner should be able to "logically suspect" a person as a unauthorized worker.
