The news is just full of all of this illegality going on all over the country while we are supposed to sit and just do nothing.

Poultry supervisors plead guilty in S.C. case (broken link)

GREENVILLE, S.C. Seven former House of Raeford Farms poultry plant workers acknowleged they used fake IDs to work at the company's poultry plant here.

The men pleaded guilty to aggravated identity theft in federal court Tuesday, and each faces up to two years in prison before being deported back to Mexico, their homecountry. The former supervisors are Simon Gutierrez-Gomez, Federico Torres-Perez, Juan Ramon Macias-Rodriguez, Juan Juarez-Suarez, Gualadule Neri-Templos, Evaristo Merinos Vasquez and Juan Francisco Martinez-Olivarez.

In a February series about working conditions in the poultry industry, the Observer found that N.C.-based House of Raeford increasingly relied on Latino immigrants and that former supervisors said managers were well aware that undocumented immigrants worked for the company. Of 52 current and former Latino workers who spoke to the Observer for the series about their legal status, 42 said they were in the country illegally.

Yeah, we are fully aware of this problem in NC (and SC, as well). Funny, ICE doesn't seem to want to do raids, tho. Can't figure that one out.

Citizens have been reporting violations to local authorities for years. Rarely is anything done. I feel a business should be SHUT DOWN if they hire illegals. Fines are not working, it appears. The illegals should be sent back home. But I guess no one thinks that is effective, since they continue to slip back our very porous, unprotected borders.

At least your state appears to be doing something. There is a tipping point, however when those laws will just not be enforced. Ask some of us closer to the border.

I'll let you in on a little secret, the feds hire illegals also, mostly (not all) through contracting. A fact not fiction.

Amazing, Anonymous . . . the more I hear and read, the more I am amazed at the blatant arrogance of the Illegals as well as the Scumbag Employers.

THEY HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO SHAME OR CONSCIENCE.
