A Hopatcong teacher on spring break needed four workers, presumably for spring cleanup. A gray-haired, bespectacled lady needed one.
Dover, after years of trying, seems to have worked out an accommodation suitable to laborers, contractors, merchants and residents. They meet near the train station
"In the process led by Morristown One Community, we are the presumptive lead agency for the creation of a workers' center...that would be open to day laborers and anyone else interested in looking for work."
ATTENTION PRESIDENT BUSH...NUMEROUS ONGOING FEDERAL FELONIES IN PROGRESS...President Bush?....Hello?...Is there anyone there?...Hello?...Is anyone out there?

"Any person who . . . encourages or induces an alien to . . . reside . . . knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such . . . residence is . . . in violation of law, shall be punished as provided . . . for each alien in respect to whom such a violation occurs . . . fined under title 18 . . . imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both."
Section 274 felonies under the federal Immigration and Nationality Act, INA 274A(a)(1)(A):
A person (including a group of persons, business, organization, or local government) commits a federal felony when she or he:
* assists an alien s/he should reasonably know is illegally in the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him or her to obtain employment, or
* encourages that alien to remain in the U.S. by referring him or her to an employer or by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way, or
* knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions.
Federal Immigration and Nationality Act, Section 8 USC 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv)(b)(iii)
It is incomprehensible that rational people approve of the gathering of such a large group of uneducated, illiterate people in such a place.....no matter what their purpose.
