National Restaurant Association wants DHS to finesse 'no-match' letters

From a press release:
The National Restaurant Association this week sent a letter to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The letter urged reconsideration of regulations set forth by the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement regarding legal obligations of employers upon receipt of 'no-match' letters from DHS or the Social Security Administration (SSA)...

The Association also suggests that if DHS decides to move forward before Congress acts, the finalized proposals should be non-mandatory guidelines as to possible steps employers may take if they receive a no-match letter. In short, no-match notices should not be used to create a new basis for legal liability under the statute...

National Restaurant Association and illegal immigration


Another case of business owners who number in the hundreds of thousands knowingly violating the immigration laws. This request amounts to an open confession. Instead of considering their request, Congress should open an investigation of this industry's hiring practices.

The people have a lot of brass asking Congress that they be exempted from the legal liability of being prosecuted if they ignore blatant evidence that they are dealing with a suspected illegal immigrant after receiving a no-match letter. It is also appararent that they feel that identity theft is not a crime.

Write your Congressman today, referencing the letter, asking him to support the formation of an investigative committee on the hiring practices of the restaurant trade.

If they would like to be restaurant owners in Latin America, why don't they buy one there. It wouldn't be especially expensive for them.
These people are being duped by power-seekers, and a re building on sandbars with no more thought of the morrow than a child.
