Homeland Security Set for a Crackdown on Illegal Hiring

In a new effort to crack down on illegal immigrants, federal authorities are expected to announce tough rules this week that would require employers to fire workers who use false Social Security numbers.



“We are tough and we are going to be even tougher,” Russ Knocke, the spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security, said yesterday. “There are not going to be any more excuses for employers, and there will be serious consequences for those that choose to blatantly disregard the law.”

I suspected this was in the works when Pilgrims Pride started firing workers last month and it looks like I was right.

The statement made by Mr Knocke sounds good, but the question now is will they follow through with their threats?

One thing is for sure it sure bets sitting on their butts doing nothing, better to use the laws we already have on the books then wait for new ones that may not work
