Feds shift gears on illegal immigration – USA TODAY

The Department of Homeland Security is changing the way it tackles illegal immigration, in many cases remaking or rescinding Bush administration policies.

The changes put heavier emphasis on employers, including more investigations of hiring records and fines for violations, says John Morton, assistant secretary for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in DHS.

    OK, they are going after the employers. GOOD! What about the illegal aliens that are working these jobs? Are they going for another job? Are they being arrested for ILLEGALLY entering this Country? Are they being fingerprinted and told to leave the Country and if they are caught again, they will be fined?

    How about imposing an immediate fine? What are you doing with the illegal aliens? As an American taxpayer, paying for all the benefits these illegal aliens get, I have a right to know.

    Illegal aliens have made America the dumping ground for all their illegal alien children, then we have to school them and give them free medical care. I’m sick and tired of these illegal aliens snubbing their nose at our laws. What are you doing about this?

    We have 12-20 million illegal aliens in this Country and 15 million Americans out of work. Who should have these jobs? Illegal aliens or Americans?

    If we get the illegal aliens out of this Country our health care crisis would not be so bad. Our schools would not be so overcrowded with the illegal aliens children.

    So, what are you doing with the illegal aliens working these jobs?

    It’s time for ZERO TOLERENCE with these ILLEGAL ALIENS. It’s time for them get out of this Country and back in their own Country where they belong. When we get rid of the ILLEGAL ALIENS, we will get rid of all the problems that go with them.
