Solution is to ENFORCE existing law and to not only FINE according to the 8 USC Section 1324a states: “Any person who knowingly hires/harbors/transports any illegal alien is guilty of a felony punishable by 10 years jail + $2000 fine per illegal alien + forfeiture of the vehicle or property used to commit the crime”, but to put them in JAIL as well!!!!
In this case it seems the employer is going thru the H-2A visa program. It is time to make these cheapskate employers really PROVE they have exhausted all means to find AMERICAN workers to fill the opening. If the requirement to be on welfare would require only those who are TRULY unable to do the job we could find many workers available to fill these jobs. We also need to go back to letting teenagers work like we did when I was a teenager. In fact I was working for pay when I was ten years old – picking beans – working in a fruit stand. There is need for great revision of the child labor laws. Not only would it fill these phoney *needs* for foreigners but it would take a whole lot of kids off the *STREETS* getting into trouble,
Bury your Congress critters in email and phone calls – tell them to ENFORCE THE IMMIGRATION LAWS and to CEASE encouraging them to come here and stay. All DACA people need to be returned to their home country – with their parents and other ILLEGALLY SQUATTING FAMILY MEMBERS. If they still want to come to America they can APPLY to do and go thru the steps that LEGAL immigrants go thru.
ENFORCE EXISTING IMMIGRATION LAW – Failure to do so should be cause for those politicians to be subjected to the 8 USC – Section1324a law. Fine them and incarcerate them as stated. Perhaps that will get their attention. ~ Jackie Juntti
Sessions‘ DOJ to Sue Colorado Corporation for Hiring Foreigners over Americans
U.S. Attorney General Jeff Session’ Department of Justice (DOJ) said it will file suit against a Colorado corporation accused of hiring foreign workers over Americans. It will be the first-ever lawsuit based on President Trump’s “Buy American, Hire American” executive order.
In a statement by Sessions, the DOJ announced it file a lawsuit against Crop Production Services, Inc. The company is based in Loveland, Colorado. The DOJ will claim the company discriminated against American workers in violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
“In the spirit of President Trump’s Executive Order on Buy American and Hire American, the Department of Justice will not tolerate employers who discriminate against U.S. workers because of a desire to hire temporary foreign visa holders,” Sessions said in a statement. “The Justice Department will enforce the Immigration and Nationality Act in order to protect U.S. workers as they are the very backbone of our communities and our economy. Where there is a job available, U.S. workers should have a chance at it before we bring in workers from abroad”
Let’s keep this rolling…
In 2016, according to the DOJ, Crop Production discriminated against at least three American workers in El Campo, Texas, by refusing to give them jobs in seasonal positions. The company instead, awarded those jobs to imported foreign workers who came to the U.S. on the H-2A visa program.
The DOJ also says Crop Production hit American workers with tougher job requirements than they did foreign workers on H-2A visas in order to discourage Americans from taking jobs at the company’s Texas facility. According to the DOJ, American workers were forced to complete background checks and drug tests, while the imported foreign workers were allowed to begin working before completing either of the job requirements.
The DOJ complaint alleges that Crop Production refused to hire an American worker who had limited English-speaking abilities and instead hired foreign H-2A workers who did not speak any English. Crop Production gave all of its U.S. jobs in 2016 to foreign H-2A workers, rather than Americans. (READ Full Story)
