Government to Step Up Immigration Law Enforcement
The Bush administration plans to step up immigration enforcement by raising fines on employers who hire undocumented workers, overhauling temporary worker programs and speeding up deployment of border agents, according to a summary of the plans.
Also, the Homeland Security Department will ask states to voluntarily share their driver's license photos and records with the agency for use in an employment verification system. The sharing is meant to help employers detect fraudulent licenses, according to the summary.
I look forward to the criminals actually being treated like criminals but I'm disapointed because I'm guessing Oregon won't be participating to the fullest extent.
