Illegal Immigration

Simply arresting the illegals only slows down the illegal workers for a short time. Placing substantial fines on the employers for hiring illegals and more fines for not using E-Verify to check their eligibility for employment will put a crimp in the job magnate bringing more across the border.

ICE raids meatpacking plant in rural Tennessee; 97 immigrants arrested

Federal officials arrested 97 immigrants at a meat-processing plant in rural Tennessee late Thursday in what civil rights organizations said was the largest single workplace raid in a decade and a sign that the Trump administration is carrying out its plan to aggressively ramp up enforcement this year.

Ten people were arrested on federal criminal charges, one person was arrested on state charges and 86 immigrants were detained for being in the country illegally, Tammy Spicer, a spokeswoman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said in a statement Friday. All of those arrested were in the country illegally, she said. Most were from Mexico.

The raid on Southeastern Provision in Grainger County, Tenn., follows arrests at 7-Eleven stores and other workplaces nationwide. Last year, the nation’s top immigration official said he had ordered agents to increase the number of work-site inspections and operations by “four or five times” this year, to turn off the job “magnets” that attract immigrants who are in the country illegally and punish employers who hire them.

Last year, acting ICE director Thomas Homan said the agency planned to “significantly” increase work-site operations, but he said his strategy would be different from the Obama administration’s.

“Now we’re going to prosecute the employers who knowingly hire illegal aliens,” he said last year. “We’re going to detain and remove the illegal alien workers.”

Since Donald Trump took office, immigration arrests have risen more than 40 percent and deportations from the interior of the United States have spiked 34 percent.

In January, ICE fanned out to 7-Eleven stores in the District and 17 states, including California, Maryland, Michigan and New York. Agents arrived at 98 7-Eleven stores to interview employees and deliver audit notifications, making 21 arrests. At the time, agency officials said it was the largest operation targeting an employer in President Trump’s tenure. [snip]

Immigration hawks have called on the administration to step up work-site enforcement and to require all employers to use the E-Verify system, which checks workers’ legal status. They say the Trump administration’s focus on border security will no block illegal immigration if immigrants can continue to find jobs in the United States.

The old cry from the Jackass Party that the Fencehoppers will do jobs Americans won’t do hasn’t held water. Americans took plenty of jobs after the illegals were tossed out.
There are a large group of welfare queens that are able to work; they may not be willing but getting hungry is a great motivator to get off the couch.

If employers can’t find workers, perhaps they might try raising wages up to today’s standards. They will figure it out if they wish to stay in business.

Illegal Immigration

This flow of illegals isn’t few in numbers; it’s a sea of bodies moving north abetted by various governments that should be thwarting it due to lack of documentation, papers and plain closed borders. Mexico’s Southern Border is one of the tightest to cross without proper paperwork, suddenly becomes porous.

An army of illegal aliens is marching on America

Sounds like the first line of a movie script based on some dystopian future, doesn’t it? But it’s actually an underreported story from the real world.

I first became aware of this developing tale thanks to a tweet from Nicolas Medina Mora lionizing the work of Adolfo Flores of Buzzfeed. What is Adolfo up to? Take a look.

Flores is apparently on a lengthy trek through all of Mexico with a literal army of migrants from a number of countries including Honduras. Normally one might imagine that a potential national security crisis for the United States such as this would be cause for raising the alarm. Instead, the Buzzfeed reporter is cheering them on and talking about their “struggle.”

You won’t see much in the way of coverage of this on the major networks or CNN, but Buzzfeed is covering it.

For five days now hundreds of Central Americans — children, women, and men, most of them from Honduras — have boldly crossed immigration checkpoints, military bases, and police in a desperate, sometimes chaotic march toward the United States. Despite their being in Mexico without authorization, no one has made any effort to stop them.

Organized by a group of volunteers called Pueblos Sin Fronteras, or People Without Borders, the caravan is intended to help migrants safely reach the United States, bypassing not only authorities who would seek to deport them, but gangs and cartels who are known to assault vulnerable migrants.

Organizers like Rodrigo Abeja hope that the sheer size of the crowd will give immigration authorities and criminals pause before trying to stop them.

“If we all protect each other we’ll get through this together,” Abeja yelled through a loudspeaker on the morning they left Tapachula, on Mexico’s border with Guatemala, for the nearly monthlong trek.

This isn’t a group of family members or some isolated, organized clan. This is an army. Flores numbers them in the hundreds but looking at the pictures coming from the “march” it clearly appears that their numbers are swelling. The real figure, as cited by Mora, is likely already more than a thousand. Their purpose? They make no bones about it when asked. They, “hope American authorities will grant them asylum or, for some, be absent when they attempt to cross the border illegally.” [snip]

This army of interlopers moving across Mexico “without authorization” as Flores puts it (translated to “illegally”) is seeking to overwhelm the resources of immigration officials and are ready to cross the border illegally if an opening presents itself. If Mexico allows this to simply happen with no intercession they shouldn’t expect such a friendly reception with the State Department and the White House.

The tune the Jackasses play is “Shuck and Jive”. You’ve heard it before, in the key of always flat.

When Democrats (C) are in charge… from Rico

Seriously? How can anyone who is sane and has an IQ above room temperature support, much less vote for Democrats (C) today?
– Gawrsh…I have answered my own question.

I don’t have the words to describe what it is like when Democrats (hock, spit) run things, but these four attachments do a pretty fair job of it…..

Democrat Immigration plans

They want the European model. That’s straight forward and simple for America.

ICE arrests 212 illegals, targets 122 businesses in LA sweep

Federal deportation officers staged one of the biggest enforcement actions in years against businesses in Los Angeles last week, arresting 212 people and serving audit notices to 122 businesses who will have to prove they aren’t hiring illegal immigrants.

Nearly all of those arrested were convicted criminals, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

ICE said it targeted Los Angeles because it’s a sanctuary city, meaning it refuses to fully cooperate with federal authorities on deportations from within its jails.

That means agents and officers have to go out into the community, said Thomas D. Homan, the agency’s deputy director.

“Fewer jail arrests mean more arrests on the street, and that also requires more resources, which is why we are forced to send additional resources to those areas to meet operational needs and officer safety,” Mr. Homan said. “Consistent with our public safety mission, 88 percent of those arrested during this operation were convicted criminals.”

The actions and notices came even as Congress was debating — and failing to pass — legislation that would have legalized about a sixth of the illegal immigrant population in the U.S.

The screeching and gyrations from the Jackass Party in Congress over the last shutdown makes one wonder what the big to-do is concerning DACA and the illegals. The Donkeys can’t care about them; look how they treated the blacks after every election once they secured their vote. Much pablum is offered and spilt milk is cried over on the Congressional floors but nothing changes for them. Oh yeah, some got an Obamaphone.
We were told the illegals will do jobs Americans won’t do. What might that be?

Here’s your answer!
