The federal government will inspect hiring records of 180 employers in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas and Tennessee to check for compliance with immigration laws and regulations.

That’s according to the National Federation of Independent Business.

The business group says the inspections will be performed by Homeland Security’s division of immigration customs enforcement.

Technical violations carry fines of up to $1,100 each. Knowingly hiring an undocumented worker — and filling out forms to hide the employment — carry fines of up to $3,200 for each violation.

    in my opinion i think that they should leave all these immigrants trying to work for there families and not bother anyone alone! they dont hurt noone they just do the work that others dont want to do, some example are the work done in the fields like picking up oranges or strawberry or tomatoes. what obama needs to do is fix this immigration law and give them working permits, he knows good and well that the U.S does not work with out immigrants. Chineese, Japanese, Indians, Hispanics, Africans, etc…immigration is just a sad part of the united states of america it hurts families and seperates them if obama really cared about families he wouldnt let immigration do this to so many families…he needs to remember that his aunt is an illegal alien as well!! He should put his self in that position.

    I think they need to do more checkinf on the smaller companies myself. The illegal workers is thw reason so many AMERICA CITIZENS are WITHOUT work and we are the ones that are struggling. They can come and not have to pay land taxes or anything. The money they make most of it is sent to Mexico. The only American money that they spend in the US is on food or rent. They drive around illegal no drvers license, no insurance and then if they hit somone who has to pay THE AMERICAN CITIZEN. NEED TO STOP ALL ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
