Why do so many businesses get a pass from existing immigration hiring laws? in other words, why do so many republican law makers and law enforcement ignore the many illegals working in the US. As we saw in Georgia when there is a true crack down, many move back and 'reverse immigrate', when their illegal school age children are deported their parents must move back, and we could take similar steps but notice such measures are rarely taken, and yet when we see they are we can see evidence of how effective it is. It leads me to think since the 1980's both democrats and republicans, mostly due to the fact larger and medium sized businesses wanted them, jobs filled by illegals was a silent fact that lead to the immigration issue today. Why don't nations like Russia have an immigration problem? they have a huge border? There are specific reasons why we have an issue and I feel republican lawmakers are part of that problem. Simply put? Why don't you crack down on businesses and empower local sheriff's with a mandate to do so. We can find instances where local sheriffs did that and were effective and the 'powers that be' ie the state-federal authorities made a stink out of it. Yet, who should get the tax payer mandate and power: those who are effective at the job. In this case, empower local sheriffs. INS, if they are serious? Contact me I have plenty of ways you can increase your deportation rate. Start with Wal Mart? Simply shop at night and low and behold you will find illegals shopping. It might sound like profiling but trust me, you'll find paydirt if you take such approaches. Also go though and systematically see which school children are legal or not, and if not, deport them, their parents will follow back to whereever they came from.
My sources is myself and various news articles, such as the ones describing how effective local sheriffs can be in rooting out illegals. Sure some local cops are corrupt and will warn local businesses. that too is part of the problem.
