Mass Firings of Illegal Aliens a Welcome First Step, Especially at Christmas

By John W. Lillpop

While the U.S. Senate wastes valuable time pondering the hideous, anti-American DREAM Act, illegal aliens in Minnesota are being subjected to justice and the rule of law, long overdue and especially appropriate at Christmas when the needs of American citizens should be the most important priority.

As reported at reference 1, Chipotle eateries in Minnesota have engaged in mass firings of illegal aliens:

RICHFIELD (WCCO) – A Minnesota immigration rights group is protesting what it calls “mass firings” of Chipotle workers. According to the group, around 50 of the restaurant’s Latino workers have been fired in the last week.

The Minnesota Immigration Rights Action Committee (MIRAC), a local group that fights for the legalization of undocumented workers, says employees at local Chipotle stores came forward, saying they were fired over questions about their immigration status.

“We started to piece together there was something larger going on than a few people fired at one store,” said MIRAC member Brad Sigal. “It appears to be a statewide attack on immigrant worker who are longtime employees most of them been working there for years.”

As is usual with leftist groups that advocate for illegal aliens, the official rhetoric deliberately avoids mention of the word ILLEGAL when describing the plight of the “undocumented.”

Sigal went on to say the following as also documented in the reference:

“It is an I-9 audit,” said Sigal. “They check the paperwork and fire anyone who can’t immediately prove they have the right to work. An action like this on a mass scale before the holidays is not consistent with the image they have cultivated.”

“In a statement, Chipotle said, “We are fully cooperating with Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials in Minnesota in connection with a document request they have made.”

While Chipotle deserves kudos for finally doing the right thing, the federal government needs to take severe measures—fines and prison sentences for the management-- against the firm for hiring illegal aliens to begin with.

Combined with immediate deportation of the illegals, coming down hard on Chipotle is essential to putting an end to the invasion of America by criminals from Mexico and other points south of our borders.

What better time than Christmas than to protect the interests of American citizens from invading illegal aliens from foreign sources?
