In what can be seen as heroic or at least common sense by the Obama administration last week, immigration officers caught the Chuy Restaurant owners in a double sting operation. At their 14 outlets in Arizona and California, officers caught 42 illegal aliens working full time.
While officers set in motion deportation proceedings, Immigration, Customs and Enforcement officials arrested the owners Mark Evenson and his son Christopher Evenson on severe charges of hiring and harboring illegal aliens. If convicted both men face 80 years in jail.
ICE officers changed their tactics for the first time in many years.
Instead of rounding up the illegal aliens while the employers enjoyed complete freedom, the Obama administration decided to lock up the employers.
Obama’s enforcement policies reflect a growing pressure from out of work American citizens now numbers 15 million, while 8 to 10 million illegal aliens enjoy full time employment.
Few employers understand or care about the fact that American taxpayers foot the subsidy bill for over $346 billion annually to illegal aliens and their children as to schools, free lunches, anchor babies, medical care and incarceration costs. (Source: www.TheSocialContract.com

Long running investigations of those employers have culminated in indictments, convictions and exponentially increased fines. To hire one illegal alien requires a great deal of fraud as to forged or stolen Social Security cards, false ID cards and betrayal of integrity to the U.S. government.
An estimated 8 to 10 million illegal aliens remain fully employed across the United States in the hotel and restaurant areas as well as farming, landscape, construction, painting, roofing and retail.
Bear-Stearns showed that America allows the second largest underground economy to proliferate with illegal aliens walking across U.S. borders.
Other businesses will be under greater scrutiny as Obama’s enforcement policies become more strident. Such fast food industries like McDonald’s will be facing greater penalties. McDonald’s for years has hired illegal aliens with immunity from prosecution.
New York Times journalist Julia Preston said, “Administration officials say that their audits and investigations of employers have laid the groundwork for a system that would dissuade companies from hiring illegal aliens. Republicans say the administration is failing to remove those immigrants from the workforce just when Americans are grappling with high rates of unemployment.”
In a similar vein, the Supreme Court last week validated Arizona’s right to mandate E-Verify to make businesses check on legal status to work within the United States. An estimated 22 states are now encouraged to pass the exact same legislation to move more illegal aliens out of the employment fraud now going on in much of America.
If an employer hires illegal aliens, he or she may have their business licenses voided, thus driving them out of business.
While the Obama administration attempts to make good on reworking the immigration situation and providing amnesty for an estimated 20 million within the United States, experts agree that it will become a hot campaign issue in 2012. For over 20 years, it has been passed off to each successive administration with the only winners: employers of illegal aliens.
It’s about time that law enforcement put the horse before the cart. It works much better that way. Enforce the laws and the employers will fall in line. Jail does not make a suitable result to most businessmen.
