After yesterday’s news of Alex Sink’s idiocy about how giving amnesty to illegals would reduce the “burden” on the citizenry, we get news that Teh Dumb goes all the way to the top.
The Obama administration regularly cuts a break for businesses that hire illegal immigrants, reducing their fines by an average of 40 percent from what they should be, according to an audit released Tuesday that suggests the government could be doing more to go after unscrupulous employers.
According to the audit, conducted by the Homeland Security Department’s inspector general, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement cut one business’s fine from $4.9 million to slightly more than $1 million — a 78 percent drop.
Investigators said the reduction is legal, but it may be undercutting the administration’s goal of getting tough on businesses that hire illegal immigrants.
Wow! These must be “special” investigators to have come to that conclusion.
I understood that the ICE’s budget was part of the federal budget and that the federal budget was still in the red. Wouldn’t collecting the full value of these fines not only serve to discourage the hiring of illegals, but could also be thrown into the kitty to fund the ICE?
President Obama needs to be careful or people might start to think that he doesn’t care as much about country as he says he does.
