Illegal hiring

LOS ANGELES — The Trump administration’s crackdown on unauthorized immigration has resulted in the prosecution of tens of thousands of people entering the country illegally. But new data suggests that the government has not prioritized the prosecution of employers, whose jobs represent the biggest lure for those crossing the southern border to reach the United States.

In the 12 months that ended in March, more than 112,000 people were prosecuted for illegal entry or re-entry, while just 11 employers faced criminal charges for hiring undocumented workers, according to analysis of government data obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, or TRAC, at Syracuse University.

“Not only are few employers prosecuted, fewer who are convicted receive sentences that amount to more than token punishment,” TRAC said in a statement.

Of the 11 people convicted during the 12-month period, only three served prison time despite Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s stated mission: “ICE’s worksite enforcement strategy focuses on the criminal prosecution of employers who knowingly hire illegal workers.

Guess the penalties on hiring illegals depends on how much money they send to the Republican campaigns.

Why should private enterprise be penalized because the government is failing on one of its only constitutional duties enumerated??????

 

Protect the border. 
 

Government does its job? No illegals in the country to hire.

The law of supply and demand us what makes everything tick. The US is in need of new roads, bridges, and interstate highways. If you offer green cards for lawful abiding immigrants, with expedited security measures, the illegal immigration issue would be improved. I guess it is easier to blame immigrants than it is to blame politicians for bad policies.

Supply and demand, huh?

 

So what happens when you flood the market with unskilled illegal immigration labor? 
 

That’s right. You drive the cost of labor down.

 

Another reason why every country in the world controls immigration, idiot. 😂

Who said anything about unskilled labor?  Many can be properly trained. Wonder if the same politicians would rather house prison inmates for $40,000 a year, and let the government take care of them, or put immigrants to work. Most US citizens prefer easy work, rather than more physical labor. Unfortunately, politicians would rather get kickbacks from contractors for construction of new prisons.

😂So can Americans......and actually get paid more....

 

Reduce the supply of labor and the value of labor goes up....

 

So you spouted off supply and demand but you argue against it and you want cheap illegal immigration labor....😂

 

You need to actually put some thought into your positions, idiot.
