Is Bush Co. and the Amnesty Express about to make a U-Turn in policy? Did they finally realize smearing their own base on immigration reform might not be the best policy after all? Who knows...



Adminastration Readying Crackdown on Employers
Associated Press - August 2, 2007 6:45 AM ET

WASHINGTON (AP) - Employers nationwide are preparing to fire workers with questionable Social Security numbers.


[CUT - DO NOT REPOST LARGE PARTS OF COPYRIGHTED ARTICLES!]

LINK: KTRE-TV - Lufkin/Nacogdoches, TX - Administration readying crackdown on employers
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now we wait to see if anything is actually implemented. If the Department of Homeland 'Security' can't hand out passports to Americans wishing to go overseas for summer vacation, I can't help but be skeptical at them jumping at the chance to take on even more of a workload.

But hey, they may very well intend to crackdown. Time will tell.

I'm all for it. Hopefully it will cut down on stories like this one

http://www.news12.com/LI/topstories/article?id=198093

in which an illegal immigrant is suing his employer for $20,000 in "back pay" because he was getting paid less than the minimum wage.

The illegal's lawyer (yes he has a lawyer, from someplace called The Workplace Project) is quoted in the article as saying
"The state law says that any person that works here - doesn't say every person that's legally here - they should get the minimum wage."

The title of the article is "Taking advantage of illegal immigrants".

Say WHAT???!!!

Of course the employer could have hired a local teen instead, but then he'd have had to pay him minimum wage and probably *gasp!* on the books as well. Gawd forbid.

Throw the book at these employers, is what I say. Take away one of the carrots that encourage people to come here illegally.

This is too funny.... the lawyer he has is an ass, you can't use the legal system to upold an illegal act (illegally working) its as simply as that, plus the guy who employed him will get a visit from homeland security.

Its like a drug dealer taking his customer to court for not giving him the going rate for crack!!!

Not being rude to the moderators that be, but why did it cut the article out of the post if I linked it? Not like I'm trying to get by with plagiarism. Since when can't you repost articles? Just wondering.

You can post a short quote and a link to the article. By short, I mean a short paragraph or several sentences. Anything longer than that will be shortened.
Yac.
