With regards to the previous post: If half your workforce doesn't show up on a given day because of rumors of immigration raids, it's a safe bet that those workers are illegal aliens. As an employer I don't believe you have plausible deniability any more.
It would be like you announcing drug tests and half your workforces suddenly remembers that family emergency and takes off. Pretty safe bet that they use drugs.
Brian Bergler, who is quoted in the article can be reached at the phone number for Pahlisch Homes, 541-385-6762. You can contact them by email here.
According to this article Bergler said. "We're just anxious for all of them to return as quickly as possible."
So you need your illegal labor to return Mr. Bergler? (appropriate name)
Mr. Bergler's company, Pahlisch Homes, should be reported for the high probability that they employ illegal aliens, this can be done here.
The second company represented in the article is Latham Excavation.
Bend excavation worker Alfredo Arreola said he's been a U.S. citizen since 2000, and that when the Hispanic community gets word of U.S. immigration in town, they stay home, afraid they could be transported back to Mexico.
I'm sorry but the "Hispanic community" doesn't have anything to worry about, it's the illegal alien community that should be afraid.
"They don't want to go back," said Arreola, who works for Latham Excavation in Bend.
Too bad. It's time for them to go back and time for Latham Excavation to be shut down if they are employing illegal aliens.
Latham can be reached at this number: 541-382-8267
