California Yankee talks about the recent crackdown on IFCO Systems. I must say I agree 100% with this sentiment:
A number of bloggers are calling this crackdown nothing more than a politically motivated attempt to salvage the President's guest worker proposal. I'm happy to see illegal aliens and their law breaking employers arrested, even if it is politically motivated.I have long believed that what was needed to resolve the illegal immigration issue is not new laws but simply the resources to enforce the laws on the books. I have to provide proof of citizenship when I take a new job - so should everyone. Go after the employers who do not get proper documentation and fine them accordingly. That would be a huge first step in solving the problem.
