It’s a crime that American businesses will hire illegal aliens. In an effort to save money, they take jobs from hard-working families and give them to illegals. These companies don’t care about helping immigrants. They are simply greedy.
Yet across the country, businesses will knowingly employ illegal aliens. It’s so common, big corporations often lobby to undermine our immigration laws.
It’s not just liberals who attack Trump’s plans to crack down on illegal immigration. Republicans, in the pockets of special interests, obstruct his plans to build the wall and enforce our laws. Companies pressure lawmakers to make it easier for them to hire people other than American workers.
Not anymore. Under President Trump, companies are going to learn that learn that hiring illegals doesn’t pay.
More than 100 workers at an Ohio gardening and landscaping company were arrested Tuesday when about 200 federal officers descended on the business and carried out one of the largest workplace immigration raids in recent years.
The operation was part of the White House’s increasing focus on businesses that hire people in the country illegally amid a broad range of immigration crackdowns under President Donald Trump that include stepped-up deportations, targeting of sanctuary cities and zero-tolerance border policies.
No criminal charges were filed against the company, but the employer is under investigation, authorities said. Two locations were searched, and Khaalid Walls, an agency spokesman, said “a large volume of business documents” were seized.
Chances are, this business is in big trouble. There’s no way they didn’t know over 100 of their employees were illegal aliens. Companies are required to check the employment eligibility of the people they hire. Maybe one or two could slip through the cracks. But 114? Give me a break. This company knew what they were doing.
Yet companies will continue to do it. It’s far too tempting to hire illegals who will work for drastically lower wages. Such practices create environments where American workers can’t even compete. Wages across numerous industries are driven into the ground.
Meanwhile democrats encourage more illegal immigration. They promise illegals government handouts to supplement their crappy wages. They get food stamps, health care, sometimes even housing. What about American families? Oh, they get the shaft.
Hopefully this will be the first in a series of raids. Companies across the country must be held accountable for what they do. They need to learn to hire American workers, or else.
