California Companies Are Fearful Of Trump Deportation Orders Or Something

(Before It's News)

The media is slowly turning from Outrage over Trump’s illegal
aliens plans to ""
over the federal government not forcing
little girls to accept penis in their bathrooms, locker rooms, and
showers in schools of all levels, but, there are still a few
holdouts, such as the LA Times

fear — among California businesses

The news that President Trump ordered an aggressive crackdown on
11 million undocumented people sent a chill through immigrant
communities. California businesses that employ lots of immigrants
are shivering too.

If they employ lawfully present workers, what’s the problem? If
they’re employing illegal aliens, then they are in violation of
criminal code.

Two memos released by Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly
on Tuesday directed immigration officers to broaden the scope of
their enforcement, conduct more raids of immigrant communities, and
detain people living here illegally regardless of whether they had
a criminal record.

Those marching orders could hit the California economy
particularly hard. Many of the industries that depend heavily on
immigrants already were experiencing a labor shortage.

Undocumented workers make up 10% of the labor force in
California, USC researchers have estimated, and form a large chunk
of the employment that drives massive industries such as
agriculture and construction.

So, we’re worried about some California companies who are in
violation of ""

, especially if they are not
doing due diligence to make sure the person is lawfully present?
Let them face the fines and potential jail time for blowing off the

“In the urban, rich economies of California, the high-end jobs
are for U.S. born [workers] and the service, low-end jobs are for
immigrants. Immigrants have adjusted to the high-cost environment,
and that’s a way for them to absorb this cost,” said Giovanni Peri,
an economist at UC Irvine.

Immigrants tend to live in tight quarters and move around a lot
in order to cushion the blow of expensive real estate in
California’s biggest cities, something that native-born Americans
may be less willing to do, Peri said.

Now, that’s an interesting notion: California has made things so
expensive that only legal migrant workers and illegal aliens will
do certain jobs. This is how Progressivism works in reality. What
happens when they raise the minimum wage to $15, and things implode
further? Anyhow, super lower class loving Progressive Californian’s
apparently like the idea of a permanent underclass to serve them in
the fields and places like supermarkets and restaurants.

Madelyn Alfano, president of Maria’s Italian Kitchen, which
operates nine restaurants and employs 400 workers, said anxiety
about deportation had spread throughout her workforce.

Alfano, who emphasized that she hired documented workers, said
her employees still worry about family members who are in the
country illegally.

People wonder “‘what’s going to happen if my wife or my child or
someone else in my family is taken away?’” Alfano said.

There several sob stories like this in the article, where they
all stress they only hire legals. If they’re legal, why the
concern? Might be a case of protesting too much.
