Hiring Illegals Cost Company $2 Million

A report by Susan Carroll on Chron identified:
A tree-trimming company based in Houston reached a $2 million settlement agreement with the Department of Homeland Security that will allow it to avoid criminal prosecution for hiring illegal immigrants, officials announced Friday.

The agreement capped an investigation into ABC Professional Tree Services Inc. that dates to early 2008, when Homeland Security Investigations agents in Alabama were tipped off that the company was hiring illegal immigrants.

The company, which trims trees and vegetation for electric utilities in more than a dozen states, made about $2 million between 2005 and 2011 from the work of illegal immigrants, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. . . . [Full Story]

Illegal Alien Gets 40 Years for Raping 8 Year Old on Christmas Eve

ALIPAC Reports: How many Americans must suffer before enough Americans speak out and this invasion is repelled? Or is this the doomed future that awaits us all due to American apathy? Please share this story with others you know and ask them to join us in the fight to stop and reverse illegal immigration in America.


Jorge Miguel Gallegos' booking photo.

By VIK JOLLY / THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

SANTA ANA – A Superior Court judge sentenced a man to 40 years and 8 months to life in state prison Friday for sexually assaulting an 8-year-old female relative on Christmas Eve while family members slept in other rooms, calling his conduct "depraved."

Jorge Miguel Gallegos, 38, of Santa Ana, was convicted in April of six felony counts, including sexual assault, lewd acts on a child under 14, and dissuading a witness from reporting a crime.

 . . .  The victim's life is turned upside down and her family is destroyed by the assault, Judge Carla Singer told Gallegos at the sentencing.  "The fact that you'd do this to a child is unbelievable," she said. "It was depraved."

At about 11 p.m. on Dec. 24, 2009, Gallegos took the victim into his kitchen, where he sexually assaulted the child after other family members had gone to sleep, the Orange County District Attorney's Office said.

His wife walked into the kitchen and witnessed the molestation, prosecutors said. Gallegos ripped the telephone from the wall and threatened his wife not to tell anyone, before fleeing the scene and going to a friend's house.

Gallegos' wife called 911 and Santa Ana police officers arrested the defendant in the early hours of Christmas Day.  A subsequent investigation by detectives revealed a second unreported sexual assault when, between September and December 2009, Gallegos sexually assaulted the girl in his home, including the same conduct as on Christmas Eve, prosecutors said.

Deputy District Attorney Mark Birney told the court before sentencing "even among evildoers, Mr. Gallegos' conduct is extraordinary."

He violated the girl, who called him father, in "unspeakable ways," the prosecutor said. The conduct is "unimaginable; it's subhuman ... This is not a man who can be trusted around the rest of us."

Deputy Public Defender Charles Hasse told the judge he does not want to be dismissive of what Gallegos did or rationalize his behavior, but a 25 years to life sentence would be "more than ample." That's the sentence someone convicted of a first-degree murder would receive.

"The girl's alive and she's doing relatively well," Hasse said, adding he did not believe "she's doomed for the rest of her life." . . . Read More

Illegal aliens sue U.S. Senate

Washington Times - Illegal immigrant students and members of the House sued the Senate this week to try to overturn the upper chamber's filibuster rule, arguing that the 60-vote supermajority requirement violates the Constitution and is blocking important legislation such as legalization for illegal immigrants.

If successful, the lawsuit, filed Monday, would rewrite the way the Senate operates — though courts generally have been reluctant to meddle in internal congressional rules.

Still, the effort mixes two thorny issues in separation of powers and immigration, and is likely to keep the Dream Act at the forefront of the national debate. The bill would legalize illegal immigrant students and young adults who were brought to the U.S. as children and who are seen as among the toughest cases in the immigration debate. Read More

Obama's Illegal Alien Uncle Gets Driver's License

By Bobby Eberle: Society is completely bonkers. We have laws regarding how to enter this country, yet they are ignored. People who violate the law should face consequences, but more often than not, we see efforts being made to reward illegal behavior. This one takes the cake: Barack Obama's illegal alien uncle has now been granted a driver's license in Massachusetts.

The Boston Herald is reporting something that seems impossible to believe. Barack Obama's uncle, Onyango Obama, who has faced deportation orders for 20 years, can now drive wherever he wants to go, and he can do it legally.
"It defies common sense. I can't comprehend how the president's uncle can have his license reinstated while we're all quite aware of ... his immigration status," said Worcester County Sheriff Lewis Evangelidis, one of several lawmen who fought to bring the federal Secure Communities program to Massachusetts so immigration authorities will be notified every time an illegal alien is arrested.

"And I know I'm not alone," Evangelidis said. "This whole thing is preposterous. But unfortunately, it's not funny anymore."
It turns out that what's actually going on is that Onyango Obama is getting his license returned to him. As reported on My Fox DC, the license had been suspended for 45 days due to a drunk driving conviction. Thus, he had a license. Lost it. And now has it back. All while being an illegal alien facing deportation orders.

What a country! Why do the rest of us have to follow laws? Why even have laws any more? If he is facing deportation, then deport him!

It's pretty obvious that authorities know where to find him. Once they do, they should furnish him with a one-way ticket out. Laws are made to be followed, and that applies to illegal aliens too.

Kansas Lawmakers Votes to Remain Ignorant on ILLEGAL Hires

Fox News Latino - The Kansas state legislature doomed a proposal that calls for requiring employers who do business with government agencies to prove their workers are in the country legally.  House and Senate negotiators have concluded they don’t want to include a major policy change in Kansas’s budget plan for the fiscal year beginning July 1.

The proposal would require companies having contracts with the state worth more than $50,000 to submit a notarized statement saying they use E-Verify to check the status of new employees.  . . . E-verify was authorized by the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (IIRIRA). . . . The debates and fate of proposals in Kansas aimed at coming down hard on undocumented immigrants are significant because the Kansas Secretary of State, Kris Kobach, has been a key force behind the drafting of many of the immigration enforcement laws in states such as Arizona and Alabama.  . . .

What Illegal Immigration Costs The Taxpayer

By Frosty Wooldridge, NewsWithViews.com: Each year, according to the Edwin Rubenstein report, illegal aliens cost American taxpayers $346 billion across 15 federal agencies. (Source: www.TheSocialContract.com) That includes breakfasts and lunches for their children. It includes English as a Second Language. It includes free education from K-12. It means free and unlimited medical care paid for by your wallet. It means you pay for insurance rates by unlicensed drivers and the list grows.

According to the Arizona Department of Motor Vehicles, an average of 57,000 cars are stolen annually. It is now the car-jacking capital of the world. Most are SUV’s and pickup trucks. At a conservative average of $20,000.00 per vehicle, owner losses exceeded $1.1 billion. Insurance companies in the state suffered incredible claims from policyholders.

Where did those vehicles go? Who stole them? Take a guess. Arizona is the home of 1,000,000 illegal aliens. Hopefully the Supreme Court supported S.B. 1070 to rid the state of alien migrants. They cost Arizona taxpayers over $1 billion annually in services for schools, medical care, welfare anchor babies, loss of tax base and prisons. Illegals use those vehicles for smuggling more people and drugs from around the world into our country. When the vehicles are recovered, they are smashed-up wrecks in the desert. If not found, they have new owners south of the border as thieves drive the cars through the desert and into Mexico as easily as you drive your kids to soccer practice.

The chilling costs of illegal migration reach like an octopus into every aspect of our lives. Illegal aliens displaced American workers at a cost in excess of $133 billion dollars according to Harvard Professor George Borjas. College and high school kids cannot find a summer job in yard care, landscape, fast food or service jobs. Why? Illegal aliens work them at a third the wage and often, under the table. Not only do your kids not have jobs; you’re paying taxes for illegal aliens who are not paying taxes.

Annually, 75 percent of drugs arrive from Mexico at a net cost of $75 billion hard currency that leaves our country for good. In addition, our tax dollars pay $80 billion for the War on Drugs each year. It is a war that hasn’t been won in the past 41 years and drugs are as available today to your teenager as they were in 1970.

When an alien criminal gets caught for rape, murder or drug distribution, you pay $1.6 billion annually in prison costs to house, feed and clothe those filling 29 percent of our federal and state prisons—not to mention TV, movies, weight rooms and other entertainment—they enjoy while being incarcerated.

How about illegal alien anchor babies? Over 350,000 women annually arrive pregnant and drop them on U.S. soil. You pay food, housing, medical and schooling for them to age 18 plus their mother. According to the Center for Immigration Studies,(www.cis.org) average annual cost per child K-12 is $7,161.00 and exceeds $109 billion annually per cycle of anchor babies. That’s your money given out to 350,000 moms and their kids annually and all they did was get pregnant and birth that child on U.S. soil.

If you haven’t had a heart attack by now, you’ll need Tums after this figure. The average head of household illegal alien costs you $2,700.00 in welfare money over and above any taxes he or she pays in their meager paying jobs. With 15 to 20 million illegal aliens in the USA, that figures exceeds $20 billion of your tax dollars. (Source: Center for Immigration Studies)

How about the $56 billion in pure cash illegal migrants sent to their home countries last year and every year? That’s after their kids enjoyed free education, free lunches and free medical care paid for by you. Mexico receives $24 billion annually from its worker drones.

The lifetime net fiscal drain—taxes paid minus services used—for an adult immigrant is $55,200.00 according to Carrying Capacity Network. Who makes that money up? You do! Your work! Your taxes!

With a minimum of 15 million illegal aliens in our country, these figures are the tip of the iceberg. Average bilingual education is $1,200.00 per illegal alien student. Get this! We educate 3.1 million illegal alien children each year. Do the math! Ready for another anvil dropped on your toe fact? You pay $27 billion to provide forms, ballots, interpreters and brochures for languages annually.

An estimated one-third to one-half illegal aliens work off the books. It costs $200 million to provide for emergency health care for illegal aliens in the Border States annually. California with over three million illegals paid $79 million, BUT four of their major LA hospitals bankrupted and shut their doors in 2004. Texas with 1.5 million illegal aliens paid $74 million in hospital care. Who is Texas? You, the taxpayer, that’s who! Because you, in your state, pay commensurate medical care according to your illegal alien population. Georgia ran a $63 million deficit for 64,000 unpaid doctor visits to their Grady Health Care system in 2002. In the same year, Georgia taxpayers paid $27 million for 11,188 anchor baby hospital births. Georgia taxpayers paid a whopping $242 million for educating illegal alien kids in 2003. What is it in your state?

What are the consequences? One in two adult African-Americans in New York is unemployed. African-American children’s poverty grew by 50 percent since 1999. Why? Their dads can’t find work.

It costs you, the taxpayer, $68 billion a year JUST to pay for the resettlement of legal immigrants.

Fellow Americans, we are $15 trillion in debt as of June 2012. This year’s budget deficit exceeds $1 trillion under Obama. Our trade deficit stands at $700 billion. Our consumer debt exceeds $2 trillion and our average credit card carries a $9,644.00 balance. (Source: Brian Williams, NBC) Our U.S. government borrows $1.6 billion daily from foreign banks, just to stay afloat. Have you ever heard of the Titanic? We are taking on heavy immigration numbers while we’re being financially bled to death. Are we in trouble or what?

Who brings this fiscal nightmare into America? Take a guess. The majority of your Congress! President Barack Obama!

You can count on your corporations devouring cheap labor as they send you to the unemployment lines. Additionally, they pay PAC groups to keep senators and congressmen in their back pocket. How do I know? Virtually zero companies in 2011 were taken to court for hiring illegal aliens. None went to jail. However, it’s a $10,000.00 fine per illegal alien hired and up to five years in prison. You would think that would deter corporations. Not when they’ve bought off enforcement!

Who else figures in this grand scheme? Your governors and mayors who provide sanctuary laws for illegal aliens!

As a final note, if you’re as sick of this nation-destroying dilemma as I am, join 1.1 million Americans at www.NumbersUSA.org. It’s called a ‘consciousness shift’ and it’s going to take every one of us. That means everything you do, COUNTS!

Border agents dispute claim that illegal immigrant tide is slowing

Sara A. Carter, Washington Examiner: . . . [F]ederal law enforcement agents on the border are skeptical that the illegal immigrant tide is slowing. And new information from the U.S. financial sector shows that more money is flowing from American cities to Mexico in the form of remittances from immigrants than last year.  . . .  security is being compromised as the government seeks to keep a lid on the border as a campaign issue during the presidential election cycle. Department of Homeland Security’s Border Patrol agents and Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers are being told not to make arrests of noncriminal illegal immigrants, and not to patrol areas of high traffic along the roughly 2,000-mile Southwest border.

A Border Patrol official working along the Texas border said administration officials are deliberately failing to document what is actually happening on the border. “In many cases my supervisors make it clear that they don’t want increased apprehension numbers, which means no arrests,” he said.

The government is also failing to patrol hundreds of miles of federal wildlife reserves that fall under the jurisdiction of the Interior Department. That has given smugglers and illegal immigrants a clear corridor to enter the county and has skewed national arrest figures, an official said. The U.S. is allowing “drug and human smugglers in without a fight” in parts of the Southwest, he said.

. . .  Border Patrol agents are being hampered by numerous restrictions. “For every illegal crosser who is arrested, two get away,” Bonner said.  Bonner said the Pew report, which uses statistics provided by DHS, is “surprising, considering remittances to Mexico are up despite a bad economy.”

Maria, an illegal immigrant who spoke with The Examiner on condition that her last name not be used, said few, if any, of her Baltimore neighbors in a community consisting largely of illegal immigrants have fled back to their homeland.

Statistics from the Bank of Mexico, that country’s largest bank, showed that remittances totaled $3.29 billion in January and February, up 7.9 percent over the same period last year. Remittances to Mexico are on a pace to total about $19.7 billion this year, according to the recent reports.

An ICE official who spoke on background said, “The guys in my office were laughing when we heard the Pew report and when we see DHS flat-out lie. We are in a constant battle with higher-ups to do our job. The problem is if we did it right, the numbers wouldn’t add up” — that is, they wouldn’t support the administration’s desire to keep the immigration issue off voters’ minds in 2012, he said.

But administration officials argue that current studies suggesting illegal immigration has dropped are a sign that efforts to secure the border are working. President Obama said he hopes immigration reform will soon be a reality if he is re-elected. In an interview last month with Spanish-language television channel Univision during his trip to Cartagena, Colombia, Obama said immigration reform will be a top priority early in his second term but warned that in order for it to pass “what we need is a change either of Congress or we need Republicans to change their mind.”

Chris Crane, president of the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council, said the administration is attempting to change everyone’s mind by cherry-picking data to boost ICE deportations and keep border numbers low.

ICE officers are often ordered not to make arrests of noncriminal aliens and “supervisors have been ordered not to put anything in writing,” said Crane, who testified to this before the Senate Judiciary Committee and whose union represents roughly 5,500 ICE officers.

. . . ICE is tasked by Congress with removing 400,000 people a year. As of May 5, ICE has already removed 229,664 people, of which 118,430 were convicted criminal aliens, he said. “Realistically we don’t have the resources to remove 11 million aliens, but our priorities are to remove criminal aliens, immigration fugitives, illegal re-entrants and recent border crossers,” . . .  [Read Full Story]

ILLEGAL Alien Assaults Massachusetts State Trooper

Hat Tip One Old Vet:
Man accused of assault on trooper held for ICE probe
By John Zaremba: The man cops say was drunk when he tried to run down a state trooper during a traffic stop in Lynn is being held on suspicion he is an illegal alien, police told the Herald.

Nestor Mendez, 25, is being held at the Middleton Jail on a detainer from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, according to state police spokesman David Procopio. He referred further questions on the matter to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

“Once again, we have a perfect example of someone who’s here illegally. A criminal alien should not have been in the country,” said Worcester county Sheriff Lewis Evangelidis. He is one of several Massachusetts lawmen who have bucked the will of Gov. Deval Patrick by pushing for the state to adopt Secure Communities, an immigration information-sharing program between local and federal authorities.

Ripped From The Headlines: Cimes and Jobs Taken By Illegals

100% Preventable
Sergio Fernando Solorzano-Vasquez
Pix Via: Hamilton Township Police Dept
Illegal alien charged with carjacking, assault on elderly women by Dave Gobson - Extract: police arrested Sergio Fernando Solorzano-Vasquez, 27, after he allegedly attempted to steal a car at knifepoint from two elderly (94- and 92-year-old) sisters. However, these two sisters did not prove to be the easy marks this assailant may have hoped to find. They got into their car, and Solorzano-Vasquez was hiding in the backseat. He then began to slash at them with a knife, according to police. Sgt. Robert Miktus, of the Hamilton Township Police Department told CBS Philly: “He’s reaching toward the front seat with the knife towards the women. The driver, who’s 94 years old, threw her arm back to block him, to block the knife. [In the] meantime, the other sister, the 92-year-old in the passenger seat, jumped from the car, waved her arms and started screaming, attracting attention.” Result: illegal alien Solorzano-Vasquez in jail charged with robbery/carjacking, aggravated assault, and weapons possession. Side comment: Game over: Senior Saints win - illegal loses!

THE DARK SIDE OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION - Part 3: Criminal aliens not tracked by Frosty Wooldrige - Extract: Could you give us a better understanding Mr. Wagner of what Americans face as to illegal alien migration into the United States: “They were arrested for a total of about 700,000 criminal offenses, averaging about 13 offenses per illegal alien,” said Wagner.

• 49% had previously been convicted of a felony, 20% of a drug offense; 18% a violent offense, and 11%, other felony offenses.
• 81% of the arrests occurred after 1990
• 56% of those charged with a reentry offense had previously been convicted on at least 5 prior occasions.
• Defendants charged with unlawful reentry had the most extensive criminal histories. 90% had been previously arrested. Of those with a prior arrest, 50% had been arrested for violent or drug-related felonies.

“Note the last two points – the perpetrators were once “previously deported.” Regardless, ALL those crimes would have never happened, i.e. were preventable, with serious deportation of the illegal aliens already here and proper border security to prevent both entry and re-entry.

The Justice Department does not track crimes by nationality so NOBODY actually knows how much crime is being committed by foreign nationals, a.k.a. illegal aliens. While we can make a reasonable assumption that there are more illegal alien criminals who are not in jail as there are in jail, as partially indicated by the 400,000 outstanding deportation orders, we simply do not know how much crime they are committing. . . .GAO report noted, we do know that about 27% of the incarcerated prisoners in federal jails are foreign nationals and that they did commit a lot of crime. This means that incarcerated illegal aliens are disproportionately responsible for more crime than their representation in the population. It is therefore not unreasonable to assume that illegal aliens are also responsible for about the same proportion of the ongoing crime as well. While the actual number probably lies somewhere between the two estimates, nobody knows because nobody is tracking it.” Side comment: 100% Preventable if the Gov't got off their backsides and protected both our borders and Americans.

L.A. program offers healthcare for illegal restaurant workers By Anna Gorman - Extract: A restaurant workers' group and a Los Angeles community clinic have launched a unique cooperative to provide health coverage to a group of people excluded from federal healthcare reform — illegal immigrants. The pilot program, believed to be the first of its kind in the nation, offers preventive and primary care to low-wage, uninsured workers in the restaurant industry. Legal immigrants and other restaurant workers who don't meet the criteria or cannot afford coverage under the healthcare law are also eligible. About 75,000 restaurant workers in Los Angeles don't have access to insurance because of their immigration status, Mariana Huerta of the Restaurant Opportunities Center of Los Angeles, or ROC-LA, said Wednesday. Side comment: Illegals working illegally! California and other states have high unemployment. Based on the quoted figures, up to 75,000 jobs would be created if the illegals were removed and deported. Institute E-Verify and the need ceases to provide alternative health care to these illegals (people) workers. Lunacy reigns in LA.

MCSO: Deputies arrest 50 illegal migrants in raids By John Genovese - Extract: Maricopa County sheriff's officials say deputies have seized over 600 pounds of marijuana and arrested nearly 50 illegal immigrants in the past five days. . . . n Fountain Hills, AZ Side comment: Now that is real law enforcement.

Illegal -- Undocumented -- News Articles

Pix Via NC Renegade
Latino groups rally to protest McLean County, IL sheriff's detention policies - BLOOMINGTON — Advocates for McLean County Latino residents are looking for changes in local law enforcement practices that they say pose an unfair deportation threat to illegal immigrants, but the county’s top law enforcement official is defending the policy. . . .

Members of LUC, Illinois People’s Action and several other groups criticized the policy of the McLean County jail to contact U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for all individuals born outside the U.S. as a means to verify identification. . . . The wife of an illegal immigrant told the crowd that her husband was held by ICE after a traffic stop and sent to Chicago, a trip that resulted in stress on the family, a $180 bond and $176 in impound fees for his vehicle. “This incident has disrupted all our lives,” said the speaker. . . .

Sheriff Mike Emery cited data Tuesday that he argues support the need to verify identification and criminal histories. Of the 118 individuals held on ICE detainer orders issued from July 2011 to April 2012, 61 percent had multiple aliases and 58 percent had prior arrests in McLean County, according to the data. . . .  From July 2011 to April 2012, the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement issued detainers or federal holds for 118 individuals in the McLean County jail . . .

Oregon police will accept Mexican consular cards as proof of identity during traffic stops - SALEM, Ore. — Law enforcement officials in Oregon are preparing to accept identification cards issued by the Mexican government to prove people's identities during traffic stops and other police contacts, Gov. John Kitzhaber announced in a letter to May Day demonstrators Tuesday. . . . Illegal immigrants will still be unable to get a driver's license, but people who drive without one are generally cited and released. State officials say the ability to accept and verify Matricula Consular cards will help officers verify identities faster.

Fox News guest: ‘Illegals’ can go home if they don’t like the slur - . . . The Daily Caller’s Michelle Fields told Fox News host Sean Hannity that liberals were trying to “demonize” conservatives in the Colorlines campaign to “Drop the I-Word.”

“I’m not stopping it,” Hannity insisted. “Illegal immigrant! Illegal!”

“People that enter into the country illegally are illegal,” Fields remarked. “OK, that’s not a racial slur. That’s not racist. This is simply just liberals trying so hard to change the subject, to distract voters from Obama’s failed policies.”

“I think it’s a racial slur, to be sure,” left-leaning Fox News contributor Bob Beckel replied. “It’s hate speech, which you right-wingers are pretty good at.”

“So, you think I’m a racist?” Hannity wondered.

“I just think that in and of itself it is a racist word,” Beckel replied.

“If illegals are so upset about the term ‘illegal,’ why don’t they return to their country, apply for a visa and then come back legally,” Fields advised. “And then we won’t call them illegals.” . . . .

ACLU condemns SC immigration law - Columbia (WACH) - The American Civil Liberties Union criticized South Carolina’s anti-illegal immigration bill Tuesday during stops in Columbia and Charleston. Governor Haley signed the bill late last year, it requires businesses to verify potential employees' immigration status before hiring them and instructs local police to call federal immigration officials if they suspect someone is in the country illegally.

Critics say the law encourages racial profiling. The US Supreme Court is reviewing a similar law in Arizona, and court’s decision could have ramifications in the Palmetto State. . . .

Enrique Alvaraez-Soria: Had 14 Gallons of Liquid Meth in Truck's Fuel Tank - Enrique Alvaraez-Soria, an undocumented immigrant from Mexico, . . , 41, entered a guilty plea in Houston to transporting liquid meth from Mexico in one of a Ford F-250's two fuel tanks.

In October DEA agents got a tip that such a vehicle would be carrying the drug across the border. Agents intercepted it, then took over the delivery duties to a farm in Montgomery County. "On Oct. 28, 2011, agents observed Alvarez-Soria arrive at the ranch, remove some red colored gas cans from the vehicle he was driving and siphon the liquid methamphetamine from the front fuel tank of the Ford F-250 and into the red gas cans," the U.S. Attorney's Office says. "Subsequently, officers stopped him and discovered the liquid methamphetamine and suspected acetone, mixing trays, buckets and a pump which are used to separate the methamphetamine from the liquid."

Total haul: About 14 gallons of the stuff. He also pleaded guilty to delivering four kilos of 82-percent pure meth to a DPS undercover agent in August. He faces ten years to life, with sentencing set for August 30.

Alabama Immigration Law Opponents File Complaint With Mexican Government, Say HB 56 Violates NAFTA

Editor's Note: Surprised to find the following story in Huff Post.
by Elise Foley, Huff Post: WASHINGTON -- The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) continued its fight against Alabama immigration law HB 56 on Monday by filing a complaint with the Mexican Department of Labor, calling the law discriminatory and in violation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

The complaint is the latest in a series of efforts by the labor union against HB 56, which would allow many of the state's government employees, including police officers and school officials, to inquire about immigration status. Groups opposing the law have targeted businesses, asking them to call for repeal of the law because it could hurt their interests.

SEIU coupled with the Mexican National Association of Democratic Lawyers in issuing the complaint, which says HB 56 violates NAFTA's North American Agreement on Labor Cooperation. The law "contradicts key provisions of the [North American Agreement on Labor Cooperation] and has devastating consequences for migrant and immigrant workers in Alabama, as well as for all workers in the state," the group wrote in its complaint. . . .

The SEIU is part of a coalition -- along with the NAACP, the National Council of La Raza, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the United Auto Workers and the Southern Poverty Law Center -- that hopes to bring more businesses to the anti-HB 56 movement. The coalition is working to pressure foreign automobile manufacturers Hyundai, Honda and Daimler Automotive to publicly condemn the law. All three have plants in the state and could have an impact on Republican politicians who want to maintain good relations with business, the groups say. . . . Full Article
