Where’s The “American Jobs For American Workers” Crackdown From Sessions, Trump?

An October report by the Center for Immigration Studies exposed the fact that the federal government was at that time aware of huge employers who employ large numbers of illegal aliens and do so without consequences, with virtually zero employer sanctions against their violations of immigration law.

One employs on average approximately 40,000 illegal aliens at any given time. Another company, described as large, has an estimated 98 percent of its employees who are not working legally in the US and was being allowed to do so. There’s been no outrage over mass raids, none of the marching in the streets with flags, no Democrats stepping all over each other to whine into a television camera, so it’s a safe bet no enforcement crackdown has been initiated under Attorney General Sessions and no raids conducted by DHS Secretary Kelly.

The violations were revealed in a report by the Social Security Administration’s Inspector General titled “Employers Who Report Wages with Significant Errors in the Employee Name and Social Security Number”.

In instances where the worker’s name and Social Security number on wage data do not match up with what is contained in the Social Security Administration’s database, the credits are set aside in an earnings suspense file, which means that no specific workers will be able to draw against them for benefits in the future. It’s a recognition by the Social Security Administration that the person is working illegally and they don’t want to base payments upon inflated earnings numbers.

The IG tested two groups of 100 employers each and found that for the years 2007 to 2009, 2.3 million “wage items,” which are an illegal employee working for one of the employers. Divided by three to get an annual figure, that’s roughly 800K illegal aliens working in just those 100 companies and their identities are known to the United States government. It’s no surprise nothing was done in the Obama years, but so far nothing has changed in the Trump months.

As with most of the injustices and abuses that are allowed to be inflicted upon the American workers, there are already laws on the books to deal with the problem, in fact, under the Obama regime, on August 1st of 2016, the penalties were actually increased.

Fox News reported “The minimum penalty imposed by the DOJ for the unlawful employment of immigrants would rise from $375 to $539, while the maximum fine would go from $3,200 to $4,313. The changes stemmed from amendments in a 2015 budget bill that overhauled the formula for increasing such civil penalties. Violators facing multiple charges also would be subject to a new maximum penalty of $21,563 for hiring illegal immigrants.” If an employer knowingly hires ten or more illegals in one year they could be considered to be harboring them and subject to a ten year federal prison sentence. RICO exposure also exists for the larger companies, such as the scofflaws referenced in the beginning.

So why, given the promises of the Presidential campaign and his knowledge of the wishes of the American workers who supported and advocated on behalf of President Trump, putting him into office,  have we not seen any marches of illegals in the streets denouncing having been fired for identity fraud by an employer facing fines and potential jail time? Why has the ACLU not been filing harassment lawsuits on behalf of the employers in attempts to intimidate the administration into stopping their enforcement practices. Apparently it has been “no problema,” business as usual.

The Washington Times reported in June of 2015 ” Through the first five months of this fiscal year, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement conducted just 181 workplace audits and brought charges against only 27 employers, putting it on pace for fewer than 500 audits and just 65 arrests this year. That’s less than 15 percent of the total audits conducted in 2013.”

Current census figures indicate there are 6,730,942 employers in the United States, putting the effective risk of being charged at one in 250,000. There are many who consider those minimal risks to be worth taking.

It would be a simple matter of auditing those two big offenders and perhaps eight other smaller, regional violators and imposing the maximum penalties while simultaneously announcing an enforcement-centric policy to stimulate the hiring of American workers. Offering those offenders amnesty and a limited grace period in which to effect a transition to American workers would be a boon to Americans and solve much of the problem of deportation at the same time. Many illegals would self-deport if they don’t have an employer as an accomplice in stealing American jobs. The tight housing market and associated high rental costs as well as other systemic overloads such as congestion on our roadways and social program abuse would also be greatly eased by their mass exodus.

America first sounded great on the campaign trail, President Trump; we’d like to see more than token lip service evidence of it in our daily lives. This would be an easy way to get the ball rolling, one that simply involves the “law and order President” enforcing the existing laws, as he promised American workers he would.

    Sorry but sessons has not lived up to what the people expected of him. What has he really done? Why does he keep backing out? He offered his resignation to trump, shame trump did not take it, wonder why. A new …ag….can be no worst then sessons has been, as for homeland security (that is a laugh) and who he appointed to head it, is just as useless as sessons. they both really do as they want and follow the obamsssss rules. Dam trump gets some bad advice, and people that supported him from day one, sit in the background overlooked.

  2. All employers hiring illegals should get mandatory jail time. Fines don’t work. I don’t know if things have changed (I doubt it), but they have always warned employers when a “raid” is coming, giving them the date and time. It has been like that for decades. Will anything change? I doubt it.

      You are so very right, and that needs to stop. And you know what Goldbug, even when they don’t give warning, like when the FBI raided Pilot/Flying J, our Governor’s family’s oil business, for cheating little truckers for years, they got out of it and Jimmy Haslam, brother of our Governor, said he knew nothing about it. We all know that’s a pile of horse dung. I’m so sick of all the lying and cheating and b.s. that I want to scream. Maybe we should just do lunch and have a few cocktails…ahahahhahaha

    Is Our “Drain the Swamp” President giving up on Draining the Swamp. Great High Court PICK, but the Establishment is taking over the White-house!

      Hey Deplorable Doc, I hope you’ll read this article on the Pros and Cons of Neil M. Gorsuch because he’s not a great pic. I fought to keep him out. Charles Canady was on the list and is a devout pro-lifer, which Gorsuch is not. Canady was the one who authored bill against partial birth abortion when he was in Congress, it was passed later, he’s a fabulous pro-life judge in Florida. I wish he had been the nominee…you have to remember that George W. Bush was a pro-abort, as is his wife, and when he nominated Gorsuch in 2006, Gorsuch got 100 votes, no nays, the dems loved him because they knew he was pro-abort like Bush. Here’s the article, please read it if you have time


  4. Rick and Kelleigh-

    This Powell woman who may fill in for Preibus is very worrisome to say the least …I also understand that Ivanka and her husband have been lavishly dined by Google Execs…so will the censoring continue?

    I’m starting to get that nausea feeling in my gut.

      Lyn, you are so right, I’m working on an article on her now, and she’s tight with Valerie Jarrett and Ivanka, birds of a feather I’m afraid…I have a ton on her, but will have to level it down to 2000 words, people don’t read anymore, and you have to keep it short. Frustration for me, but gives them something at least.

      • Kelleigh

        I would love to read your article. I guess when we learned that Trump would appoint his family to some of the WH positions, it might have been a Red Flag for us as it can denote prejudice and favoritism..but we trusted Trump.

        If this Syria thing goes one step further it is OVER. There seems to be a huge chance that he is listening to his daughter Ivanka and her hubby otherwise why use Powell the Arab stink weed? Many people don’t read and a great many don’t write well enough to be understood. That’s a shame. I get frustrated when written articles are full of errors of all kinds. But these days people don’t know how to read.

    Okay I will Rick when it’s published…just finished it…now working on one on this woman who may take Priebus job and she’s a good friend of both Ivanka and Valerie Jarrett

    I agree with you Rick, there has been plenty of time to say to the employers – you will verify each and every one of your employees through e verify and if we find that you have illegals working for you, you will not only be fined a large sum of money but will do jail time.

  7. this is a stupid slam on Trump from idiots. He has been in two and a half Months, The AG around a Month. What do you expect? FiVe Minutes after he gets in to turn everything around that took decades to destroy.

    • Rick Wells // April 11, 2017 at 8:52 am // Reply

      no, but five days isn’t too much to ask to enforce laws already in place, and Sessions was confirmed on Feb 8th, more than two months to direct that the law be enforced to give Americans their stolen jobs back is ridiculous and indicates it is not a high priority, perhaps completely off the table.

  8. Well what about all the jobs creation that Trump has been talking about? It could be that much of his new jobs creations with these huge companies like Ford and Toyota, the mining industry etc, takes time?

    It would be very very acrid if all of what we voted for was more of the same BS…

    • Rick Wells // April 11, 2017 at 8:29 am // Reply

      Even more reason to send the illegals packing – instant job openings for Americans. If the other stuff happens, that’s great, more choices. We’ll be waiting years for new facilities to be constructed etc, the same as nothing happening to most Americans. Jump start the job market with a quick boot to those who have stolen our jobs. win / win

      Actually, the two legal EO’s that Trump did on the travel ban also included Visas, but of course, this is another thing where Trump should tell these tyrannical judges to go pound sand. The Constitution gives him the right to do these EOs and in 1952, the Congress gave that right to the president.

      Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution gives Congress the power to regulate immigration. In 1952, Congress passed a law empowering the president to deny entry into the U.S. to “any class of aliens” considered to be “detrimental to the interests of the United States.” In other words, a threat to America and in the interests of national security. And that is exactly what our President is trying to do! He wants to stop the threat!

    You don’t hear much from Sessions and I’m rather irked that he recused himself not once, but twice

    • Rick Wells // April 11, 2017 at 7:29 am // Reply

      twice, Kelleigh?

      • Kelleigh Nelson // April 11, 2017 at 8:35 am // Reply

        Yes, once in confirmation hearings that he wouldn’t go after Hillary, and once after he was confirmed, he recused himself from the investigation of the so-called Russian election involvement.

        • Kelleigh Nelson // April 11, 2017 at 8:36 am // Reply

          Rick, I just finished an article on all the cave ins and back downs of the Trump folks, including Trump…and Sessions should never have caved…he should have told them, “Look, I follow the law where it leads, and that’s what I’ve taken an oath to do.”

  10. List the name of the companies that hire illegals, THE END.

    • Rick Wells // April 11, 2017 at 7:14 am // Reply

      I imagine a lot of them are in the mid south to south east, into texas and new mexico in the areas of poultry farms and beef slaughter houses etc, but they’re undoubtedly everywhere, skunk and the sad thing is the government has their identity, the names of the violating employees, the whole bit and is doing nothing aside from token enforcement to keep us quiet.
