“Administration’s ‘Silent Raids’ Lead to Firings, Not Deportations

“The Obama administration’s new approach to dealing with companies that hire illegal immigrants results in firings, not deportations, the New York Times reported Friday.

Instead of immigration sweeps at factories and farms which used to lead to illegal workers being shipped out of the country, the administration’s new policy—government conducted audits labeled “silent raids” by employers—usually only result in the workers losing their jobs, the Times said.”


It seems to me this policy will only produce more and more unemployed illegal immigrants wandering around the US, with no income. What do hungry, desperate people do when they have no income? Eventually they either go somewhere where they can find work or they take what they need from someone else.

This policy of getting illegal workers fired but not deporting them is going to have a massive negative impact on our crime rate. Maybe not immediately, but as the population of out-of-work, hungry illegal immigrants grows, the crime will grow. Maybe this is one of those “fundamental changes” we were promised.
