Immigration Protesters Go after Employers

The Seattle Times

LAKE FOREST, Calif. — The white van eases into a liquor-store parking lot and is swarmed by 30 Hispanic day laborers who begin intense job negotiations with the driver. Within seconds, another wave of people descend on the van. Mostly white and middle aged, they snap pictures as they cite federal labor laws.
"If you hire illegal workers, we'll put your picture on the Internet," warns Robin Hvidston, a property manager who became an immigration activist after being alarmed by the number of Hispanics she saw in her Orange County community.
Their method: Take photos of construction bosses and anyone else picking up day laborers, then post the photos on Web sites (such as www.wehirealiens.com and www.operationshameonyou.org), sometimes including home addresses and license-plate numbers. They also give their footage to immigration officials.

Their objective is twofold: to shame businesses into not hiring illegal immigrants and to force the government to enforce immigration law.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials evaluate the groups' phone tips and footage, but often their reports are not verifiable enough to prompt an investigation, said Bill Riley, ICE's chief of work site enforcement.

"Nobody gets work on the days they come," said Fernando Gomez, a day laborer.
Gomez, 30, from Michoacán, Mexico, said he and most day laborers he knows came to the U.S. illegally.
"But someday we will be legal," he said. "We just want to work. We didn't come to do anything bad to anybody."

I think this is a wonderful idea... hit them where it hurts…. In the pocket book.

Just like putting the photos of Johns that solicit prostitution, employers who solicit and hire illegal immigrants should be published and we should no longer do business with them.

Hmmm - how about a big dirty truck pull up and let all those illegals swarm in after being told they are all needed. The catch would be it's an INS truck and yes, they are all needed to be removed from our country!

In your post I'm surprised that unions favor illegal labor. Don't they take jobs away from union workers?

If only we had a law that was enforced against anyone employing illegal (undocumented) workers.
