It’s been a poorly kept secret that many employers in the United States love illegal aliens. They can pay them far less than American workers–meaning they can hire more, exploit them for labor, while avoiding taxes and benefits.
You can build all the walls you want, round up illegals by the truckload to deport, but if companies continue to hire illegal aliens, they will keep coming.
But ICE isn’t ignorant of this reality. And their leader just announced a major change that will hit employers of illegals, hard.
From The Right Scoop:
Here’s another policy that conservatives have been clamoring for, and the Trump administration is actually gonna do it.
ICE is planning to increase law enforcement on employers of illegal aliens – by FOUR times as much…
The administration’s top immigration enforcement official on Tuesday said his agency will vastly step up crackdowns on employers who hire undocumented immigrants — a new front in President Donald Trump’s hardline immigration agenda…
“We’ve already increased the number of inspections in work site operations, you will see that significantly increase this next fiscal year,” Homan promised, saying the goal is to remove the “magnet” drawing people to enter the US illegally.
Ever wonder why big businesses, sometimes very visible companies, endorse candidates like Hillary Clinton? Democrats are notoriously anti-business. Their taxes and regulations make it impossible for companies of all sizes make money.
But democrats also look the other way when it comes to illegal immigration. They even have passed laws and policy that make it harder for law enforcement to deport them, and attract more into the country (DACA, anyone?).
Any large business that throws money at democrats, often do so because they employ numerous illegals. They want to keep Obama-era policy that protects and attracts illegals, so they can continue to pay them less–and deprive Americans of jobs.
Those days are clearly behind us. With such a massive increase in enforcement for employers, it will become incredibly hard for companies to hire illegals. The penalties and restrictions would not be worth it.
Then guess what happens? Fewer businesses will hire illegals, leading to fewer illegals trying to cross the border.
The left can complain about the wall all they want, but when the illegals stop getting hired, the problem goes away completely.
