From the AP:
Employers across the U.S. are preparing to fire workers with questionable Social Security government identification numbers to avoid getting snagged in a Bush administration crackdown on illegal immigrants.Yeah, we're pretty used to those excuses, six year's worth of them. In past statements, Chertoff has almost come right out and threatened to conduct raids in order to inflame the left, and Bush has warned about a labor shortage if the current laws are enforced. In that light, this might be seen as an attempt to make things worse in order to get "reform". If they actually intend to do anything of course.
The Department of Homeland Security is expected to make public soon new rules [involving "no match" letter] for employers notified when their worker's name or Social Security number was flagged by the Social Security Administration...
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a division of the Homeland Security Department, "is going to be tough and aggressive in the enforcement of the law," [reknowned spokeshole Russ Knocke] said. "You are going to see more work site cases. And no more excuses."
