Immigration Arrests

From the WaPo:

Federal authorities announced the arrests yesterday of four construction supervisors and 76 illegal immigrants at a Kentucky home-building company, continuing a promised government crackdown on employers that rely on illegal labor.

The arrests at Fischer Homes, a leading builder in Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio, followed the April 19 arrests of seven current and former managers and more than 1,100 workers for Ifco Systems North America Inc., a subsidiary of a Dutch manufacturer of plastic crates and wooden pallets.

The effort comes as Congress debates plans to overhaul the nation's immigration laws.

The only reason something like this is news is that enforcement of our laws has been become so infrequent that when a minor action like this happens, it is national news. Personally I think these are just photops for the ICE to help convince the public that something is being done when in fact it is very little.

This type of enforcement should become so common place that the newspaper don't even bother to report on it. Sort of like the 12 murders and 13 drunken driving deaths that are attributable to illegal immigrants every single day. They rarely receive coverage.
