Do you see any problem with this website? Web site accuses companies of hiring illegal immigrants?
Hundreds of Texas employers, and thousands around the nation, have inspired Internet publicity they didn't court: They're accused of hiring illegal immigrants. A Web site, www.wehirealiens.com, lists companies from Pilgrim's Pride to Swift & Co. as "alleged" employers of illegal immigrants. Both those food companies have had employees at their Texas operations arrested for immigration violations and document fraud, but many other companies listed on the site have not. And that has employers angry that the founders of the Southern California-based site publicly accuse them of breaking laws. The founders contend they established the site in 2004 in frustration over what they call ineffective action by the federal government. There are now nearly 5,000 "illegal employers" listed from nearly every state. The Web site reflects one more way that technology is amplifying the national debate over illegal immigration. Scores of sites have gone up in the last few years to defend, to denigrate, and to discuss civilly the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. "We wanted to put the pressure on to the employer because they are the magnet drawing illegal aliens to invade our country," said Jason Mrochek, a co-founder of the Web site. But others retort that the site unfairly places blame where evidence may be thin. Still others question the site's role as a law enforcement adjunct. http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/news/nation/stories/120608dnmetwebvigilantes.3e8f989.html Pilgrims Pride and Swift have both been raided in Texas since December 2006 and were both found to have had illegal aliens working for them. Management at Agriprocessors in Iowa claimed that they had used E-Verify and were in compliance with the law until ICE raided them and found half the workforce were illegal aliens hired with the cooperative assistance of management in providing false documents. $10 million fine and the head man is going to get some serious jail time. You don't really believe a greedy, corrupt employer is going to admit it openly, do you?

It is a felony for these companies to give jobs to illegals, would they rather be prosecuted or have their names on a web site? If they don't hire illegals they can offer proof and clear their names, otherwise offer them some cheese to go with their whine.

No I dont see any problem with the existence of this website. The only problem I see is that this website needs to exist. Any employer who willfully and knowingly hires an illegal alien criminal....is a criminal themself, and they should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

Nope, none at all.

The reason these companies hire illegals is to keep wages down. They also don't worry too much about heavy change over because they figure that if any of them cause problems they'll just fire them and not have to face repercussions; they figure that there will always be more to hire.

I love this site, and have added employers to it myself. We need more sites like this. It may be that soon we will be adding the American Public as an employer of illegals, should the Obama birth certificate issue prove true.

No, I don't. I think this site is a great thing and it's more than appropriate that these greedy businesses be outed. If you're going to break the law, expect consequences.
