Illegal Immigration in the News
Here are some of today’s News articles on Illegal Immigration:
Executives at a cleaning company were arrested Wednesday on federal charges that they hired illegal immigrants and helped them steal the identities of U.S. citizens.
Gerardo Dominguez, the plant manager for Quality Service Integrity Inc. in Beardstown, and Maria del Pilar Marroquin de Ramirez, the company’s personnel administrator, were charged with aggravated identity theft, among other offenses.
Authorities charged 25 other QSI employees with identity theft, and as of Wednesday afternoon had arrested 11 of them. The executives and the employees were to appear in federal court Thursday.
Another 49 workers were taken into custody as illegal immigrants.
I am sure we can expect some sympathy stories detailing the hardship that the illegals and their families will have to endure since the arrest comes just before the Easter holiday.
Just days after announcing he is running for President, Republican U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo of Colorado held a meet-and-greet with voters at Pete’s Guns and Tackle on Dracut Road.
Holding meetings in small venues, such as the gun shop, is the best way to meet voters face to face, said Tancredo, who is hoping to build on the support he garners to compete on a larger scale with the other candidates.
Tancredo said he announced his candidacy the same day other candidates were announcing how much money they had raised.
While they have raised tens of millions of dollars, Tancredo said that in just a month, his campaign has been able to raise approximately $1.5 million, with the average contribution being $59.
“That means a lot of people are behind me,” he said. “I don’t have to buy a constituency; it already exists for me.”
Like I have said before, I don’t think Congressman Tancredo has a realistic shot at getting the Republican nomination for President. His campaign though will be a success if he can keep illegal immigration as one of the major issues of the 2008 Presidential Election.
Bills addressing modern-day slaves, illegal immigrants, disabled motorists and prison inmates were considered last week by the state House of Representatives, according to state Rep. Jim Hackworth, D-Clinton.
Two major bills in the Finance, Ways and Means and Judiciary committees target involuntary servitude and human trafficking in the Volunteer State. One bill, the “Tennessee Human Trafficking Act of 2007,” outlaws recruiting, transporting and harboring people for coerced, involuntary labor or sexual acts. Another bill would enact the “Tennessee Anti-Child Sexual Servitude and Trafficking Act of 2007,” which specifically protects children younger than 18 years of age from sexual exploitation.
The ACLU and other “Civil Rights Groups” have consistently and continually fought tooth and nail to prevent State and local governments from increasing cooperation with the federal government in enforcing immigration laws. The actions of these groups do nothing to protect the civil rights of immigrants and instead protect those who exploit them.
