Feds Warn Companies Using Illegal Workers


WASHINGTON
(AP) - The government plans to crack down ever harder on employers who harbor and hire illegal immigrants, pursuing companies that ignore the law so they can exploit cheap labor.


"We are going to move beyond the current level of activity to a higher level in each month and year to come," Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said Thursday. He pledged to "come down as hard as possible" on violators.

Interesting, ain't it?  Do you think the Feds are finally "getting it"?  While it is true that if many illegal aliens cannot find sources of employment, they will return to their native countries, there will still be many who choose to remain here for the social services, health care, and educational benefits they currently enjoy, courtesy of the "anchor baby" laws.

To prevent more abuse of our laws, the Congress should amend the anchor baby laws to reflect that at least one of the parents is an American citizen.

Stopping the tidal wave of illegal invasion, the Feds must act now by putting troops on the border, and building fences where practicable.

I am personally tickled by the Minuteman Border Fence Project, and plan to be in Arizona for the groundbreaking ceremony Memorial Day weekend.  The desperation of the border landowners should be evident to all, by their agreement to participate in this project.

Please keep sending your faxes/emails/letters to your elected representatives.  The McCain-Kennedy-Specter Immigration bill  is pure junk, and will not solve the problems with which we are currently dealing.  It is an amnesty program, pure and simple.  Make sure your representatives know that you will not vote for them if they support anything other than securing the border and enforcing the laws already on the books.
