As unemployment reaches 8.1 percent, over 7 million illegal aliens working in america

The unemployment report is out, and it is UGLY…our national Unemployment Rate is now over EIGHT PERCENT, some 4.3 Million LEGAL AMERICANS and/or Legal Immigrants have lost their jobs since the start of this Second Great Depression. So why isn’t President Obama taking immediately steps to GET ILLEGAL ALIENS OUT OF THE AMERICAN WORK FORCE. Two easy steps to put Illegal Aliens out of work would be:

1. Instant enactment of E verify, and make it a mandatory participation program for all employers. Further, make it mandatory that all current and future employees be verified through E Verify.

2. Increased Work Place and Neighborhood Raids by ICE, Border Patrol, FBI, and all law enforcement agencies with the specific intent of TARGETING AND DEPORTING LARGE NUMBERS OF ILLEGAL ALIENS.

Deportation of 12-25 Million Illegal Aliens would lower property taxes in many areas where home owners are being forced to pick up the tab to educate over 4.5 million children of illegal aliens. Deportation of America’s Illegal Aliens would put upwards of SEVEN MILLION LEGAL AMERICANS BACK TO WORK.

WAKE UP MAIN STREET…it is US OR THEM, and right now over seven million of them (Illegal Aliens) are working because you have been MEEK LITTLE LAMBS marching to your own slaughter. What is it going to be? Are you fine losing your home, are you fine with your children STARVING? ARE YOU FINE MOVING YOUR FAMILY INTO THE FAMILY MINI VAN? We can force Obama to take the necessary steps to DEPORT THESE VERMIN that are stealing food from the mouths of YOUR CHILDREN, but only if you become vocal, only if you let Washington DC know your RAGE.

Lake Co. Illinois Criminal Alien program leads to 260 deportation cases

By identifying illegal aliens arrested in Lake County as soon as they come into the criminal justice system, the federal Criminal Alien Program has resulted in 260 deportation cases being opened since Sept. 1, Sheriff Mark Curran and other officials said Tuesday.

Administered by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement branch of the Department of Homeland Security, CAP allows ICE to place a detainer on any illegal immigrant arrested for a felony offense.

The detainer places an indelible mark on an inmate’s paperwork that follows him or her through the system, and upon completion of the criminal proceedings against the inmate, results in their immediate transfer to ICE for deportation.

“The cost of illegal immigration to law enforcement and the criminal justice system is astronomical,” said Curran, who touted the program at the Lake County jail as proof of the results of local law enforcement cooperation with the federal government. “We are a nation of immigrants, but we are a nation of laws as well, and we are enforcing the law in Lake County.”

Curran said CAP is different from the ICE 287g program he has also applied to be a part of, because unlike 287g, his employees do not receive power to do any functions usually performed by ICE agents.

Gail Montenegro, public affairs officer for the six-state area covered by ICE’s Chicago office, said the CAP program resulted in the opening of 221,085 deportation cases last year, up from 164,296 in 2007.

Not all those targeted for deportation have left the country, she said, because ICE waits for jail or prison sentences imposed on convicted criminals to be served before removing them from the country.

In Lake County, Curran said roughly 20 percent of the jail population at any given time is made up of illegal aliens and that there are currently 152 foreign-born individuals in his custody.

Guilford North Carolina to join 287(g) criminal deportation program

Thursday, January 15

( updated 3:29 pm)

GREENSBORO – Illegal immigrants arrested on criminal charges in Guilford County could be deported when the sheriff’s office begins a version of the 287(g) immigration program in the spring, Sheriff BJ Barnes said.

The program, which is a cooperative partnership with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, is designed to allow a local law enforcement officer to check a suspect’s citizenship and detain them for deportation.

“That officer will have the authority of an ICE agent and access to their database, which was what we were looking for,” said Barnes, who first applied for the 287(g) program in April 2007. A federal grant would pay for the program in Guilford.

Full-blown versions of the controversial 287(g) program, which are operating in Alamance, Wake, Mecklenburg and Gaston counties, allows those counties to hold illegal immigrants until they are handed over to ICE officials.

Barnes said Guilford County will have a “hybrid” 287(g) program, not a full-blown program that keeps illegals in jail for an extended period.

“It’s an offshoot to where we have access to 287 information,” Barnes said. “So say, if we arrest someone for breaking into a house, we can see if they are here legally or illegally.”

Under the program to begin in April, Barnes said suspects found to be illegal immigrants would not be released on bond but would be held locally until their criminal charge is resolved in court.

Once that happens, the suspects would then be handed over to ICE officials for the deportation process.

Kentucky restaurant owner sentenced to 8 months for employing illegal aliens

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The owner of a LaGrange restaurant was sentenced Tuesday to eight months in federal prison following his guilty plea to knowingly employing illegal aliens. This sentence resulted from an investigation conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Fei Guo Tang, 38, of LaGrange, Ky., is the owner of Jumbo Buffet located at 1218 Market St. in LaGrange. He was sentenced Jan. 6 by U.S. District Court Judge Charles R. Simpson III, Western District of Kentucky, to eight months in prison for employing illegal aliens at his restaurant. Tang was also sentenced to serve three years of supervised release following his release from prison.

Tang had pleaded guilty to knowingly employing at least 10 illegal aliens at his restaurant between November 2006 and November 2007 for commercial advantage and financial gain. He was arrested Nov. 14, 2007, when ICE agents executed a search warrant at his restaurant. During the search warrant ICE agents seized about $59,000 from the restaurant, which will be forfeited to the United States, and detained six illegal aliens found working at the restaurant, who have since been deported.

ICE agents initiated the investigation in December 2006 after receiving credible information that illegal aliens were knowingly being employed at the Jumbo Buffet restaurant. Tang is not a U.S. citizen, and will be subject to deportation proceedings after he completes his prison sentence.

“ICE aggressively targets employers who egregiously violate immigration laws by knowingly employing an illegal alien workforce,” said Jerry Phillips, resident agent-in-charge of the ICE office of investigations in Louisville. “This case demonstrates firsthand how ICE agents use our investigative tools to pursue those who take advantage of illegal labor for personal profit, and to gain an unfair advantage in the business marketplace.”

Since it was established in 2003, ICE has dramatically enhanced its efforts to combat the unlawful employment of illegal aliens in the United States. In 2008, ICE made more than 1,100 criminal arrests tied to work-site enforcement investigations. Of those charged criminally in these types of cases, 135 were business owners, managers, supervisors, or human resource employees. In addition to the criminal arrests, ICE also took 5,100 illegal aliens into custody on administrative immigration violations during worksite investigations.

To help employers build a legal workforce, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security established an initiative called the ICE Mutual Agreement between Government and Employers, or IMAGE. IMAGE is designed to build cooperative relationships between the government and businesses, strengthen hiring practices, and reduce the unlawful employment of illegal aliens. The initiative also seeks to gain greater industry compliance and corporate due diligence through enhanced training and education of employers. ICE encourages employers to review the IMAGE program materials available at: www.ice.gov.

28 criminals deported from Las Vegas under 287g in first month

Immigration officials deported 28 foreign-born Clark County jail inmates during the first month of a new partnership with the Metropolitan Police Department.

The partnership, which officially began Nov. 15, allows specially trained corrections officers at the Clark County Detention Center to identify immigration violators and start deportation proceedings against them.

Through mid-December, 882 people booked into the jail were identified as foreign-born and screened for their immigration status. Of those, 114 were identified as being in the United States illegally. Their names were forwarded to the U.S. Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Twenty-eight either have been removed from the United States or are in holding stations awaiting removal, police said.

“Preliminary numbers show it (the partnership) is in compliance with what we wanted it to be: one additional tool to target the criminal element,” police spokesman Jacinto Rivera said.

Wake jail widens immigration checks

RALEIGH – Now everyone booked into the Wake County jail will have their immigration history and citizenship checked.

Wake County jailers will have access to a fingerprint-based database that includes data about visa applications, previous deportations and residency applications — part of a pilot program starting today by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The purpose, says Wake Sheriff Donnie Harrison, is to find out whether someone arrested is in the country illegally. Fingerprint records will be used in addition to the resources the sheriff’s detention officers already have to check inmates’ immigration status. The Wake Sheriff’s Office participates in the 287(g) program, named for a section of a federal law that allows local jailers to check the immigration status of inmates and begin deportation proceedings.

Tyson Foods Using E-Verify

The corporate team at Tyson Foods took a recent plant tour as an opportunity to communicate their hiring practices. The company employs more than 100,000 people with more than $26 billion in sales. With the recent string of Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids at poultry packing plants, Tyson said it employs only documented workers.

“Tyson does not employ unauthorized workers,” Cathy Johnson, vice-president of employment compliance, told The Courier in Russellville, Ark.

“Every single person that we employ, their information is entered into the Department of Homeland Security’s E-Verify program,” she added. “That allows us to ensure that everybody that we employ is employment authorized.”

Bradley County, Tennessee partners with ICE and joins Criminal Alien Program

Written by B. Gault, Public Information Office
Monday, 22 September 2008
The Bradley County Sheriff’s Office has joined the Federal Criminal Alien Program offered by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The Criminal Alien Removal Act of 2008 directs the Secretary of Homeland Security to carry out a program to:

  1. Identify incarcerated criminal aliens.
  2. Ensure that such aliens are not released into the community.
  3. Remove such aliens from the United States upon release.

Sheriff Tim Gobble and Chief Deputy Bill Dyer met recently with representatives of ICE to finalize details of Bradley County’s participation. The act focuses on identifying criminal aliens who are incarcerated in Bradley County thereby helping to ensure that they are not released back into our community after they serve their sentence.

This program allows the correction staff in the Bradley County jail’s booking office to check the immigration status of all new inmates. As a normal part of the booking process correction officers will ask all inmates a number of questions such as where they were born and if they are a United States citizen. If the officer suspects the person being booked is here illegally or that their immigration status is questionable, an inquiry will begin to obtain more information about the individual. Those with questionable legal status have their names faxed to ICE for computer records checks and status verification.

If ICE cannot verify legal status, the individual is assumed to be here illegally and ICE will issue a federal detainer and forward it to the BCSO. This allows the BCSO to hold these individuals after their court proceedings are over and / or sentence is served.

Once the judicial process has concluded, the person will be held for federal authorities who have 48 hours to pick them up and begin deportation proceedings. This program also prevents those identified as illegal aliens from being released on bond once the detainer is received.

Sheriff Gobble said, “This is a step in the right direction, but the Federal government must get the illegal alien problem under control by securing the U.S. borders and quickly deporting all who come here illegally. The first test of citizenship is the ability to follow the law. If someone comes to this country illegally they have failed the first test of citizenship and should be deported until they can demonstrate adherence and respect for this country’s rule of law.”

“I am a great supporter of legal immigration and I am proud that the Statute Of Liberty still welcomes the world’s ‘tired, poor and huddled masses yearning to breathe free’ and holds her welcoming lamp ‘beside the golden door.’”

“However, I am strongly opposed to illegal immigration. It is important for all immigrants desiring citizenship to come here legally, it is also imperative that the federal government reduce the immigration bureaucracy and streamline a legal immigration process that promotes lawful entry into this country instead of discouraging it.”

Chief Deputy Dyer pointed out over the last several years there has been a noticeable increase in criminal offenders being brought to the jail who are unable to provide the arresting officer and the booking officer with either a driver’s license, social security card or any authenticated immigration papers.

Sheriff Gobble has worked diligently for months seeking viable solutions for the increasing local illegal alien problem.

“Getting this illegal alien problem under control will promote public safety and National Security for all citizens.”
