    Nebraska city votes to bar hiring illegal immigrants

    Link
    BBC News - Nebraska city votes to bar hiring illegal immigrants

    Quote(Voters in a city in the US state of Nebraska have backed a ban on local businesses and landlords hiring or renting to illegal immigrants.

    About 57% of voters supported the move, which is likely to be the subject of a court challenge.)

    If the report is accurate then it would seem that many more communities will seek a similar law to be passed in their locality.

    President Obama seems to be sitting on his Immigration Bill, it really is about time something was put into place that solved this problem.

    I for one think it just makes sense to not hire the ILLEGAL immigrants.

    I would prefer we just make it much easier to immigrate into the US. New blood is not a bad thing. New blood that is off the record and can therefore be taken advantage of (hiring them for despicable wages that are way below minimum wage, and then being able to treat them harshly) and New Blood that can come in and out of the country committing crimes and getting away with it is a bad thing.

    So I support this law very much so.

    Interesting. This sort of thing doesn't usually get much traction. Business owners hire illegals because they work hard and for less money, it's good for business. If you want to reduce illegal immigration, you need to eliminate the reason they come here, by cracking down on their employers. You can beef up the border security and deport as many as you like, but in the end it will be just another war on drugs. The demand is there, the product will come, one way or another.

    No they simply work for less money, period.

    If you have a hole in a wall you plug the wall before trying to bail out the water. This isn't rocket science. Stop them at the source then you can concentrate on the ones already here and deport them as well but if you leave the hole open you will never gain the upper hand.

    And no, not all come for jobs so lets not perpetuate that myth.

    I am glad they enacted the law. This means cities and states doing something about illegal immigration will gain traction in other places. Hopefully they enforce it. What I would like to see is those who hire illegals being treated no different than drug dealers and other criminals who profit from illegal activities or use money to fund illegal activities. Make them subject to assets seizure and forfeiture laws and prison time for knowingly(this includes deliberately turning a blind eye by not verifying documents ) hiring illegals since they do profit from hiring illegals and by hiring illegals they are using their money for illegal activities.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Somebody's going start screaming racism, 'fore we know it. Enforcing this law isn't going to be any different than enforcing the Arizona law. Authorities will go into a workplace and pick on the hispanics and not question the white folks.

    Does anyone know what sanctions there will be for violating this law? I don't have a problem at all with this approach to curbing illegal immigration, but without teeth, it's nothing more than empty political posturing.

    Exactly if you dont kill the source, all it becomes is revolving door. Business shouldnt be just fined for having illegal workers, their should be a fine per illegal immigrant.

    Farmer's Branch TX passed a law last year that made it illegal to rent to an illegal. A Federal judge declared the law unconstitutional. They are about to file an appeal with the 5th District Court. This NE law will likely follow the same path. What happens, especially in these times of economic woe, is that the Federal Courts can outspend the cities for legal services.

    Except that, it is illegal to employ an illegal alien.
