Over 1,000 immigrant workers and their supporters marched in Los Angeles July 29 in opposition to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) policies. While the marchers were protesting the increasing use of I-9 audits and E-Verify (both means by which the government checks on the “eligibility” of workers for employment), mass firings and sweeps against the immigrant working class in industries across the country, the organizers of the protest are merely asking that fired workers be given more notice.
Los Angeles: immigrant workers protest layoffs, repression

Such incredible arrogance and idiocy.

They aren't "immigrants" anyway.

"Others have left our children behind in Mexico, Guatemala or other countries and support them from our work at the plant.”



Wow, for some reason that sounds like breaking up families.

I've been fired a few times throughout my life and never - NOT EVEN ONCE - was I given a 90 notice! Hell, I've never been given a month notice... it was always "you're fired, effective immediately!
What balls these people have to want more notice... they should be told to take a hike the minute they are found to be an illegal alien working in the USA!

How did we arrive at this level of entitlement? They aren't supposed to be here and are demanding 90 days of work. This absolutely blows me away.

The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA), also Simpson-Mazzoli Act (Pub.L. 99-603, 100 Stat. 3359, signed by President Ronald Reagan on November 6, 1986) is an Act of Congress which reformed United States immigration law. The Act made it illegal to knowingly hire or recruit illegal immigrants (immigrants who do not possess lawful work authorization), required employers to attest to their employees' immigration status, and granted amnesty to certain illegal immigrants who entered the United States before January 1, 1982 and had resided there continuously. The Act also granted a path towards legalization to certain agricultural seasonal workers and immigrants who had been continuously and illegally present in the United States since January 1, 1982.
