Default Largest ICE raid in a decade

Let me ask, why are they there in the first place? Is this crackpot mayor whining because he's pro illegal immigration or is he just mad because they are sending his constituents (or possible constituents) home?

These immigrants broke the law and were here ILLEGALLY. ICE was following laws that are in place for this sort of thing. But according to the MSM and Democrats I am supposed to feel 'outraged' by this. I don't feel outraged at all about this. Lawbreakers (in this case people illegally entering and residing in our country) need to be dealt with according to the laws that are in place for this sort of thing.

I feel no more outraged by this than I am other criminals who get arrested for breaking the law and being separated from their families. These people made the choice to come and stay here illegally in this country and to illegally work here. I do not feel sorry for them. Hopefully those that hired them will go to jail and be severely fined. Because they are just as guilty as the illegals they employed.

Raids like this should happen far more often then they do. Hopefully they also arrested those responsible for hiring the illegal aliens and fine them so heavy that go out of business.

That's an aspect I'm wholeheartedly on board with...

..and many of them are Republicans looking for cheap labor...

Dave, very good question. Perhaps laws on the books protect them... I'd have to dig deeper into that before I comment further on it. But I am wondering the same thing.

In some news reports I heard about this, ICE officials (or some other gov entity) was looking to bring charges against some or all of the companies. Not sure about details as I had heard it on a radio news station. And I am too lazy to look it up.

We can't ask about citizenship on the census but employers are supposed to act as ICE agents. There are 11 million or more illegal aliens living in the US with more arriving every day but employers are responsible for screening them out of their payrolls.

The current verification system, e-verify, can only be used after someone has been hired. If the results turn out to be inaccurate, the employer pays the price.

Employing illegal aliens ought to still be illegal but until we can secure the Southern border and begin a serious deportation program it's unjust to require employers to act as ICE agents.

A couple of reasons...

1) Unless it's a "one building" company, most companies have their HQ or human resources in a different facility...And "yes" there should be a day of reckoning with them soon IMO...

2) Did the illegals have false documentation that made it look like they were legal? If so, the people who hire may be gullible as all get out, but not criminal...
