In addition, the UNION should be held CRIMINALLY accountable!!!
Check out Bar S meats, they've been using the verification system for years to avoid hiring illegals.
"I have an answer back within a minute," Martin Thompson, vice president for human resources at Bar-S Foods Co., a Phoenix-based meat-processing firm told the Arizona Republic. The company has been able to participate in the program since 1998 because some of its 1,500 employees are in California and Texas."
"Less than 8 percent of the time we will find someone where the computer kicks them back," says Thompson. That's a reduction from the 30 percent Bar-S was seeing in 1998 when it first started the program.
But if others decide to join Bar-S, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services may not be ready. On its website, the agency warns: "If significantly more employers than anticipated choose to participate in the Basic Pilot Program, USCIS may have to limit the number of participants." (snip)
"the UNION should be held CRIMINALLY accountable!!!"
Both Swift and the Unions should be prosecuted on RICO charges, for violation of the '96 INS Laws, but then, so should the Catholic church and Federal Government, and no one has taken them on yet either. The only big case that I am aware of in this industry that is pending is Howard Foster's against Tyson (and Mohawk), which is why Bush is pushing for a quick passing of S2611 which will give amnesty to the employers.
