Letter Of The Day: Businesses That Shut Down Today? They Need To Be Investigated

From a letter sent out today to Julie Myers, head of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Dear Ms. Myers,

As you are aware, pro-illegal immigration rallies are taking place throughout the United States today. Those organizing the rallies have encouraged illegal aliens to refrain from going to work as a sign of protest.

Too often, we presume that fault lies with the illegal migrant worker, but we need to recognize that the employer broke the law by hiring the illegal alien. We believe the Federal government has an obligation to enforce the nation’s immigration laws and must actively investigate any and all instances where it is apparent industries have knowingly and willingly hired those who entered this country illegally.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should pursue the multiple reports in the news media today regarding companies which have been forced to halt operations because large numbers of their employees appear to be in the United States illegally and are participating in the protest rallies.

ICE has an obligation to use this public information to enforce immigration laws. We respectfully request that you look into this matter and report back to us on your findings.

Thank you for your immediate consideration to this important matter.

Agreed! If a business has so many workers participating in these pro-illegal alien rallies that it can’t even keep the doors open, it’s a pretty good indication that a large percentage of their work force isn’t here legally and ICE needs to look into it. The more of these crooked business owners we go after, the better.
