"I'm sure there are a lot of people applauding (the state law)," Ziemann said. "But some people out there know this community has a vested interest in what we do."When I read that, I said to myself that they should try to get money from those corrupt businesses that profit from illegal labor, since - in addition to illegal aliens and indirectly and in a minor way the Mexican government - that's who they're benefiting. The more services illegal aliens are able to get from the state or private agences, the fewer services employers have to provide and the more money they can make off of illegal activity.
To that end, Ziemann said he's looking for help from local businesses.
"I hope some of them might be willing to partner with us," he said.
"There aren't many foundations that like to fund these programs because it's so political," Ziemann added. "Many businesses benefit from immigrant workers. We're hoping they'll recognize this is the right thing to do."
