    Illegal Workers Swept From Jobs in ‘Silent Raids’

    http://news.google.com/news/url?sa=t...10enforce.html

    BREWSTER, Wash. — The Obama administration has replaced immigration raids at factories and farms with a quieter enforcement strategy: sending federal agents to scour companies’ records for illegal immigrant workers.
    While the sweeps of the past commonly led to the deportation of such workers, the “silent raids,” as employers call the audits, usually result in the workers being fired, but in many cases they are not deported. Over the past year, Immigration and Customs Enforcement has conducted audits of employee files at more than 2,900 companies. The agency has levied a record $3 million in civil fines so far this year on businesses that hired unauthorized immigrants, according to official figures. Thousands of those workers have been fired, immigrant groups estimate.
    Employers say the audits reach more companies than the work-site roundups of the administration of President George W. Bush.
    Say what you will about the Obama admin's actions in regards to Az, he seems to be doing quite a decent job in this area.

    Good idea. You can't clamp down on illegal immigration unless you attack the main reason they are coming here - Employers who are hiring them.

    Actually, it's brilliant. It costs money to "round up and deport." Take away the jobs and, as we allllll know, they'll go home of their own volition. I love it. Wow. Maybe he is serious. Where's the news been? This should make front page.

    Simple supply and demand. I've been bashing my head for years wondering why the country hasn't figured this out yet. Same with the war on drugs, actually.

    They're just getting fired . . . which leaves their families out of money and with NO help from the government/unemployment.

    This is why it's STUPID to be here illegally - you have no rights and your family will just suffer endlessly.

    “And there is no drama, no trauma, no families being torn apart, no handcuffs.”
    Honestly, this is the best news I've heard from the current administration. $3 million in fines since the first of the year. I'm sure that's put a whole bunch of companies on notice. Notice the article talks about "Guest Workers." I believe this was initiated under GWB. They're allowed in on temporary visas. Sounds great to me.

    The growers don't like this part (re guest workers):
    Under the new rules, growers will no longer be able to attest that they tried to find American workers to fill jobs given to migrants, but will have to prove they conducted job searches. The Labor Department will establish a national electronic registry of farm jobs to assist the effort.

    Looks like we'll be paying more for grapes, folks. That's a GR8T thing!!

    My only problem is those identified not being arrested. The rest sounds fantastic.

    Then Mexico needs to step up with welfare payments to their armies of invaders here in the States.

    Or they can go home, since they're not wanted here, that's the best solution for them.

    However, Invaders identified should be arrested an released from custody only in their country of origin.

    Re: Illegal Workers Swept From Jobs in ‘Silent Raids’

    So instead of deporting them all we are doing now is firing them and giving the compay that hired them, based on the fact that they audited 2900 companys and only rasied 3 mil, a small fine and allowing the illegals to just go find another job somewhere else. Is it any wonder that so many people in this counntry dont think that the Gov is serious about doing anything about our borders. A 7 year old could come up with a better plan than what we do now.

    President Franklin Roosevelt eulogized a fallen American Soldier by saying, “He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die [that] freedom might live, and grow, and increase its blessings. Freedom lives, and through it he lives--in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."

    I guess for all the bad Obama does, once in a while he does good. Hope this keeps up.
