More evidence that enforcement is working. The next time you hear an anti moan about the US not enforcing the laws on the books, ask them to talk to an IFCO stockholder.

    It's a lot of money, but it's still just money. Money is nothing compared with personal freedom. Jail time is a far stronger deterrent and/or punishment. As long as corporate execs can buy their way out of jail, they will.

    So, given that enforcement works, what do we tell the antis when the Obama Administration declares a de facto enforcement holiday on worksite enforcement?

    I seriously doubt enforcement efforts will decline under the next administration. The emphasis may change to social security no-match and E-Verify, but the heat will stay on.

    Enforcement is working? I say it is starting to work. There is no mass exodus of unauthorized immigrants to their home countries, so surely millions of them must be still employed here, employed without authorization.

    The DHS PR blitz is working; enforcement, not so much. Proof? Despite the fines, tens of thousands of employers are still under the radar, as are millions of undocumented workers.

    hmm, if you put togethter a law to have speed limit on highways at 25 mph, how are you going to know "it's working"? By the number of tickets? Sure it will be huge. But your goal is to get everyone to drive under 25 mph, you will never get it.

    If the Obama infra-structure play to revitalize the economy works lots of jobs in the construction field will be created, demand for workers will increase on jobs usually done by immigrants. If companies can not find the workers for these jobs then the plan will work slower that the economy needs it.

    I share Greg's opinion that Obama administration is likely to keep pushing for more work site enforcement. I have mixed feelings as to how smart this policy is. With rising unemployment it will score Obama some points with "working class people", and perhaps in this economy some of the jobs done by immigrants can really be filled by Americans. So in the short run the policy could be okay, and then the hope is that a good version of CIR will surface. However if Obama creates tons of news jobs while continuing enforcement only immigration policies, the economy will suffer. Overall, I think it is a smart thing to continue DHS PR, to which Greg is contributing on this blog hoping it may tip some senators towards future CIR.

    So you really believe the Obama people won't pull the plug on the no-match reg? What are you smoking, Siskind?

    "So you really believe the Obama people won't pull the plug on the no-match reg?"

    What are you worried about? You big government types all alike, you want the govie poking into all our affairs! We should build a top notch quality fence on the border and have exceptional border controls but there should be *NO* interior enforcement as it is contrary to our bedrock principles of a free society. That is what the terrorists don't like about our society and the only way they win is if we give in to our paranoia.

    What I'm worried about is that Siskind is hinting that the Obama people will keep on with full-court press on no-match. I assume Siskind is wired into the Obama transition crowd, the Lofgren people, etc., so if he says they're not going to pull the plug I'm worried.
