ABM Industries Inc., a New-York based company that provides employment opportunities for illegal aliens! Should be prosecuted and shut down.

Now that this story has been updated some of you can now understand that there is more to a story. This company has been hiring these employees for years They knew the status at the time of hiring and because of some loophole or over site they were allowed to continue hiring.

It was NOT the company who decided to all of a sudden "do the right thing" and let these employees go! It was an ICE audit that forced the company to do the right thing.

Yes, even the Union knew the status of these employees which they fought for their rights knowing that they shouldn't even be in the country let alone be working. Makes you think that ICE should pay a visit to the Union as well huh.

One thing that needs to be made very clear here is that these people are working as illegal immigrants. They are not just undocumented workers. They entered this country illegally and proceeded to work illegally. The government and this company knew this and allowed it to continue.

So feel sorry all you want for these poor criminals because that is exactly what they are. Watch this video and see who is to blame! If this bill actually gets passed we as a country are...well you decide...

This should scare everyone who sees it!

1,200 booted over the border, 1,500 come back tomorrow, thanks to the country's non-existent border controls.

I hope every liberal complaining about the unemployment rate takes a hard look as this story progresses, and figure out exactly who your Savior cares about. The hispanic vote is worth more than the lower-middle-class vote. There folks will be classified as 'victims' soon enough...

I wonder if one of the PP's crack reporters would be interested in checking out the employees at some of the commercial laundrys in the area? Not making any accusations, of course. And after all, we are a sanctuary city.

You should really thank them because they were not forced to stop hiring illegals, they just wanted to give legal Americans their jobs back... great company to work for...

This is a stupid approach. As anne coulter pointed out, all the politicians have to do is pass a law allowing illegals to sue for overtime and minimum wage, and companies will stop hiring them.

Want to venture a guess why neither democrats nor republicans have passed such a law--hint: lobbyist money.

Agreed, these illegals come here because they know another illegal who is working for 4-5 bucks an hr cash. They flock here in numbers because companies like these are hiring them. 4 dollars an hr is better than 40 pesos a day. On the flipside, the company saves on wages, benefits and the main one, employee rights. They can treat them anyway they want and they can't say anything.
