They can also stake out homedepot's follow the homeowner that hires them and bust both.
I know a BP agent that lives 50 miles from the border. He says people scurry all the time when he drives his car into the mall by his house in Escondido. He's never arrested anyone there but it's pretty obvious to him (he says) that there is no shortage of Illegal Aliens in that lot.

He's a Sup so he has to drive all over the County in his marked work car.

<<Some business owners at a San Juan Capistrano shopping center say routine checks by the U.S. Border Patrol are scaring away customers and hurting their bottom lines.>>

That's like a store owner saying "Stop the police from coming here, they're hurting my business. This is where all the gang bangers buy their beer and cigarettes."

If someone has to depend on illegal aliens, or other criminal types, to make their business succeed, they don't deserve to be in business.

Who makes the determination of what percentage of that business can be From Illegal Aliens? If a supermarket has Illegal Aliens shopping there, what percentage of their bussiness can be from aliens before they are deemed "Catering to Illegals"?

Obviously the shop owner understands the percentage. It is the shop owners who are complaining about BP agents. If illegals are not a factor in the business then those who fear BP would not be annoyed or afraid of them and would continue to shop in that supermarket. The fact that he does not want BP agents near that supermarket is a clear indicator that they are costing him illegal alien dollars. The owner wants those dollars...
Clearly he is pandering to illegals.

Could you please explain how your post has any meaning to the two phrases below?

If you would like to answer the question, go ahead...How is a business owner able to determin which of his coustomers is Illegal?

Again, I just don't understand why it is so hard to hit the companies that hire illegals? Why go after the small fish patronizing a Hair Salon?
Most people share your concern. It would be very easy to deal with those who hire illegals. In Canada for many years they have a worker permit system. Each alien worker is issued a permit to work AT AN APPROVED JOB SITE. Anyone who hires an lien that does not have the permit is arrested.along with the worker who is deported right then.It works there and it can work here. Evidently our government does not want a system that will work. go figure
