    Villaraigosa warns ICE to back off immigration raids
    Daily News Wire Services
    Article Launched: 04/10/2008 07:10:57 AM PDT

    Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is asking federal officials to rethink their policy on workplace immigration crackdowns that involve established businesses and to focus on employers that mistreat workers instead.

    The mayor said in a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff that work-site raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement could have "severe and long-lasting effects" on the local economy, the Los Angeles Times reported Thursday.

    ICE made more than 4,900 work-site arrests nationwide in fiscal 2007, a 45-fold increase over the number in 2001, authorities said.

    More than 130 undocumented workers were arrested at a San Fernando Valley manufacturing company in February and over 60 workers were arrested for immigration violations at South Bay-area warehouses last week.

    Los Angeles companies such as clothing manufacturer American Apparel Inc. have reported being questioned by ICE officials about their hiring procedures.

    Villaraigosa accused federal officials of targeting "established, responsible employers" in industries that rely on "workforces that include undocumented immigrants."

    "In these industries, including most areas of manufacturing, even the most scrupulous and responsible employers have no choice but to rely on workers whose documentation, while facially valid, may raise questions about their lawful presence," he wrote in the March 27 letter.

    He said ICE should spend its limited resources

    targeting employers who exploit wage and hour laws.

    Chertoff has not responded to the mayor's letter, but Homeland Security spokeswoman Laura Keehner said the department believes its priorities are correct.

    She said work-site investigations focus on national security and public safety and that the agency also investigates companies it believes may have committed visa fraud, money laundering, and other violations.

    Mayoral spokesman Matt Szabo said Villaraigosa and Los Angeles business leaders hope to discuss their concerns with Chertoff in person next week during an annual business trip to Washington.

    That's rediculous. Lets go after American business owners (granted they shouldn't hire illegeals---then again who can blame them) instead of going after the illegals.

    This burns my chaps about as much as seen AMERICAN hispanics at a California school take down an American flag and re-hang it upside down underneath an American flag, shouting "MEXICO! MEXICO!." I'm all for immigrating legally into this country...but damn, if your so proud of Mexico, go back. You don't see me hanging the German, Irish, and English flags all over the place and denouncing are flags.

    That was the real eye-opener that Mexico is recolonizing the South. As "prophecied" by Santa Anna.

    It's definately possible, considering that hispanics (including lots of "illegal" Mexicans) are now the Majority in a few southern states.

    I'm not racists against hispanics, I grew up in a town where there was about 50-50 whites to hispanics. Probably more now. But I feel like it's definately happening. We've already started seeing violence on the border that is considered to be just as dangerous as Iraq is at the moment.

    If this is sarcasm, I agree. It isn't the job of employers to enforce our lame immigration policy.
