Good News!! ICE is getting tough on employers. Assist Sec. of Homeland Security, Julie Myers wrote a letter to the Kansas City Star. ICE is arresting and fining employers. In some cases they are enforcing their asset forfeiture authority. I say hurray for ICE. It is about time they have gone to root cause and penalized the actual culprits of illegal immigration, the employers.
What is remarkable is you do not hear Lou Dobbs, Buchanan, Rush or the ANTI Shock Jocks talking about penalities for the employers. Where is their outcry to imprison or put these unscrupulous employers out of business? Nowhere! The ANTIs are after the Hispanic undocumented workers, no one else. We know their real agenda.
Ask yourself this, if the ANTIs really wanted to stop illegal immigration, they would push to stop the employers. The crimes of the New Bedford employer Insolia are horrendous. Not only did he solicit, hire and provide false documents for workers, he ruled them with fear and intimidation:
"Mr. Insolia ran "a sweatshop," where workers were docked 15 minutes pay for every minute they were late; fined $20 for spending more than two minutes in the rest room on the first violation and fired if there was a second violation; fined $20 for talking during work and fired if there was a second infraction; and fined $20 for leaving work before the break bell sounded. Prosecutors said Mr. Insolia provided only one roll of toilet paper in each rest room stall per day, and the rolls ran out in 40 minutes. The way the environment is described it’s the type of sweatshop that you read about in terms of the turn of the century," Mr. Sullivan said. "I’m not talking about the 21st century, the turn of the 20th century, very early 1900s. These are the deplorable conditions that these workers essentially had to endure under. They were given no option, certainly. It’s either here or the risk of no income. The conditions were horrible. Clearly, they were exploited because of the fact that they are here illegally."
Where is the outcry from the ANTIs? Don´t hold your breath waiting for them to respond.
