The municipal entity known as the City of Los Angeles is directly enabling illegal immigration by leasing a section of the parking lot of a new Van Nuys Home Depot from that store. They're paying $1 per year, and a non profit called the Youth Policy Institute will run it. The vote in favor of this was unanimous.
Once again: the City of Los Angeles is directly enabling illegal labor and illegal immigration.
Now, see the entry "Home Depot, Antonio Villaraigosa, Fernando Guerra, and Microsoft" from last June and this entry about City Councilman Ed Reyes.
Home Depot was paying a lobbyist $10,000 per month to lobby the Council concerning their day laborer sites. It appears to have been successful.
Of course, one remedy is for city residents to file suit against the City. Another would be for some intrepid reporter to do a bit of digging on this story and follow the money.
