"Oh, crikey. A San Francisco federal judge appointed by guess-who interferes
with stiffer employer sanctions for businesses that knowingly hire illegal
aliens because she says she needs more “breathing room:”"
There is a saying that one bad apple will ruin the bunch, when it comes to employers who hire illegal workers the whole bunch is bad. They are starting off breaking the law, and knowing it. I always have my doubts about people who are willing to break the law in this manner. They are not breaking the law because they want to help the poor immigrants - ok maybe a few are. Employers break the law because they want to save money by not paying what they would have to pay legal workers. Worst of all, they do it because they don't want to extend to them the rights that they would have to give to legal workers. Employers of illegals abuse their workers, and there is nothing that can be done about it, sometimes they don't even pay the workers.
They abuse the workers, and encourage the immigrants to break the law by coming here, and are the engine behind the biggest domestic crisis our country faces right now. I don't think you can punish them too harshly.
