NPR reports: "They come from places like Vietnam, China, Mexico and Guatemala, lured by promises of better-paying jobs and legal immigration. Instead, they're smuggled into the U.S., forced to work around the clock as bussers, wait staff and cooks, and housed in cramped living quarters. For this, they must pay exorbitant fees that become an insurmountable debt, even as their pay is often withheld, stolen or unfairly docked."

This is exactly why the dems want illegal immigration. So their big business friends can take advantage of them.
That should definitely be part of the solution. I have a buddy in the landscaping business. He is a patriot and hires American workers, but he finds it very difficult to compete against the ones that hire illegals. If one business hires illegals, it puts pressure on all of them to hire illegals to compete.
Me — I mow my own lawn and cut my own brush. I also make sure I hire home improvement contractors who only hire American workers.
Cry me a river.....
The dumbasses should realize it’s a scam and quickly GO HOME.
Yeah problem is a big chunk of republicans do too.
Last sentence of your excerpt sounds like taxes.
The NPR has several big lies, but they get the sympathy vote for a criminal always justifies his crime. The illegals are not “forced” to work. I’ve said it for years, simple fines on employers. First fine, $10,000 then log increases. 100,000, 1 million, .......
Why is NPR broadcasting this about immigrants being trafficked, stuck in low wage jobs, owing money to their handlers? Could it be that a serious expose is about to break?
I know you hate big business but the businesses noted are actually small businesses
My Great Grandparents immigrated to Wisconsin from Germany in the 1800s. My Grandfather who was born in Wisconsin was forced to learn English!
I demand Reparation$!!!!!
In Arizona the fine is $10,000 per employee. The second time you lose your license. We have EVerify and that helps a bit, but it keeps an employer who is trying to do the right thing from suffering if he is legit.
There are still companies that don’t care. They should go to jail
The fine increases 10 fold with each new violation. No company can survive that.
That’s why the government MUST step in and enforce immigration law. Allowing illegality to thrive makes more illegality likely, sort of like the broken windows theory. How can an honest businessman compete against those who ignore the law? One either goes out of business or breaks the law to survive.
Enforce the law. By definition, illegal aliens are in the USA illegally. At face value, they are criminals, each and every one. Employers who knowingly hire illegal aliens and pay in cash and don’t pay employment taxes, including social security taxes on these illegal aliens are, themselves, criminals. Prosecute them. Fine them. Put them in jail. Enforce the law.
Most solutions to most problems are simple. What is lacking is the will to solve the problem.
Agree; there would be no immigration problem if their was proper enforcement. If illegal immigrants cannot work to make money there is no reason to stay. They would self deport. Our enforcement is so lax there is an incentive to stay. Turn the local police radar force on businesses hiring illegal immigrants.
PK1991: I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior at a Promise Keepers Rally in Providence, RI in July, 2001. Does your “handle” refer to Promise Keepers?
No company has had to because the law isn't enforced any more than the illegal immigration laws are enforced.
A big chunk of conservatives want open borders and many are here on FR.
