Villaraigosa warns ICE to back off immigration raids

This just chafes my backside!

From Press-Telegram:

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is asking federal officials to rethink their policy on workplace immigration crackdowns that involve established businesses and to focus on employers that mistreat workers instead.

The mayor said in a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff that work-site raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement could have “severe and long-lasting effects” on the local economy, the Los Angeles Times reported Thursday.

ICE made more than 4,900 work-site arrests nationwide in fiscal 2007, a 45-fold increase over the number in 2001, authorities said.

More than 130 undocumented workers were arrested at a San Fernando Valley manufacturing company in February and over 60 workers were arrested for immigration violations at South Bay-area warehouses last week.

Los Angeles companies such as clothing manufacturer American Apparel Inc. have reported being questioned by ICE officials about their hiring procedures.

Villaraigosa accused federal officials of targeting “established, responsible employers” in industries that rely on “workforces that include undocumented immigrants.”

“In these industries, including most areas of manufacturing, even the most scrupulous and responsible employers have no choice but to rely on workers whose documentation, while facially valid, may raise questions about their lawful presence,” he wrote in the March 27 letter.

He said ICE should spend its limited resources targeting employers who exploit wage and hour laws.

First, the Villian Gross is a La Raza supporter and Mexican before U.S. traitor to this country.

Second, you are complaining they are targeting “established, responsible employers” in industries that rely on “workforces that include undocumented immigrants.”? Responsible employers follow the law, they do not violate the law. If your business requires the use of illegal labor, than you are not only irresponsible, but criminal; period. This kind of mindset just infuriates me, let poor people here working illegally and in this country illegally stay and just accept it. Even though they are all living below the poverty line here and are a drain on our resources and tax dollars. What a profoundly stupid, open border, one world, left wing liberal, progressive, socialist, commie bastard thing to say.

Mayoral spokesman Matt Szabo said Villaraigosa and Los Angeles business leaders hope to discuss their concerns with Chertoff in person next week during an annual business trip to Washington.

Your concerns? We the people do not care about your concerns! We want the rule of law to be enforced and our borders sealed. We also want all those here illegally out of our country. We do not care how hard it is to accomplish it, just do it. And the way they are increasing their raids, if they ever seal the border they will succeed within 10 years.

Build the fence El Presidente Bush!

Hmm I just read that feds arrested 300 illegals across the country. Damn they could arrest that many in my local supermarket on a Sunday evening. May I ask a queation? Is it illegal to be white or black and hold a construction job here in the Austin area? Seems that way. There’s lots of decent, wonderful Mexican Americans around here that have my utmost respect but our tolerence of illegals who have no intention of being or for that matter even liking Americans bothers me to no end.

Where is the petition that is circleling aroung to stop this madness haven’t our county facilities been stressed enough? Illegal aliens are even working in our schools – how can this be? I know an american who can’t get a simple job with LAUSD because they are only hiring hispanics. What is this? Have we all gone mad to the point of not noticing where our tax dollars are going? Do we agree how they are being spent?
