NOT MANY COMPANIES ACTUALLY GET BUSTED FOR HIRING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, STUDY FINDS

A study by Syracuse University finds few people have been prosecuted for hiring illegal aliens in the past 12 months.
Only 11 individuals have been prosecuted for knowingly hiring illegal aliens in the past year, despite nearly 86,000 people getting prosecuted for illegal entry into the country during the same time period.
Immigration hawks argue that nationwide implementation of E-Verify, a program that checks a worker’s immigration status, would alleviate the problem.

A new study finds that, despite a record-setting number of immigrants illegally entering the country, relatively few employers are prosecuted for hiring undocumented aliens.

From April 2018 to March 2019, only 11 individuals were prosecuted for knowingly employing migrants without proper documentation, according to information compiled by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. No individuals have been prosecuted in the past two months, and no companies were prosecuted in the last year.

The low levels of legal reprimand appear as an oddity given the surge of illegal aliens appearing at the U.S. southern border — many of them claiming they emigrated in search of better work opportunities.

Border apprehensions have increased every month since January, with the months of March and April witnessing back-to-back migrant encounters of over 100,000. Altogether, over half a million illegal immigrants have been apprehended since the beginning of the fiscal year.

“Given the millions of undocumented immigrants now working in this country, the odds of being criminally prosecuted for employing undocumented workers appears to be exceedingly remote,” the study noted. “Not only are few employers prosecuted, fewer who are convicted receive sentences that amount to more than token punishment. Prison sentences are rare.”

The Syracuse study did find a sizable number of people held accountable for illegal entry into the U.S., however.
