What perfect timing! Despite the latest data showing the national unemployment rate at slightly over 8% and California peaking at close to 11, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi decided to make a stand for….the employment rights of undocumented workers. Speaking on March 8 to a group of legal and illegal immigrants in a San Francisco church, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi condemned the “un-American” trend of work “raids” by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents.
“Who in our country would not to change a policy of licking in doors in the middle of the night and sending a parent away from their families?” Pelosi asked. “It must be stopped….what value system is that? I think it’s un-American. I think it’s un-American.”
Is it no wonder that the Department of Homeland Security is in a holding pattern, frustrated that the policies set forth to control our borders is in ever changing paradigm? E-verify employees, your call will be answered in the order in which it was received.
