Now that I know... will never go to any Olive Garden again. Anywhere. Bye bye Olive Garden and bye bye illegals. Keep on reporting the businesses that hire illegals so we can all boycott them. These businesses are giving us all the finger and making a bad situation worse.

Good job. Come to Asheville next. No available jobs mean self-deportation. Problem solved.

Good. Now let's talk about jail time for the restaurant manager and corporate officers. I have more contempt for them than I do the illegal workers.

The bigger culprit is the manager and whoever hired the illegals. They should be stood up in cuffs and perp-walked for everybody to see. They won't be busting our borders if nobody will hire them.

BTW, well said Reasonable, Dunnin, Lake28804.

Reckon this Olive Garden here on Tunnel Rd. has a gaggle of 'em too?

LOL! Who knows? Since I've vowed to boycott them I can't scout it out! I wouldn't be surprised though. An Olive Garden is an Olive Garden is an Olive Garden.

I think they should be punished as well. Possibly even deported with them. Wonder how they will fair in another country illegally? Probably not well. But then, seeing as to how they have no regard for laws, they would probably do ok.

Im tired of hearing about illegals in kitchens and food processing plants. THEY ARE NOT VACCINATED. It is no secret that TB, and other diseases are on the rise. Especialy in the border area.

The owner/manager should also be removed in handcuffs at the same time. If we are going to do it, lets do it right!!!!!

The illegals should be returned to their country, and the owners/managers should receive jail time along with a huge federal fine.

My family ate at the Olive Garden in Asheville last night and there were several Hispanic bus-boys speaking Spanish to each other. That is not to say they are illegal or anything, but it is an interesting thought. In addition, one of the waitresses near our table spoke broken English.

SsHhhh...we dont talk about that, besides, democrats want YOU to pay for all that for them for FREE. If La Raza, etc. keep operating, we are done. Time to outlaw these troublemaking groups in our midst. We need to identify property owners who harbor offices for these groups and shine the light.

All restaurant's should be held liable for violating the immigration laws. It should hurt them in their pocket book, because they know what they are doing. Check what what the restaurant's are paying these people for their work.

it is also illegal for property owners to rent to illegals. its called harboring a fugitive, and they can be fined, jailed and their property confiscated by the government. So if you know anybody who is renting to illegals (trailer parks?) then lets turn them all in! look-up the law.

All that needs to be done Is an audit of businesses and their I- 9 forms which need to be filled out for each employee. The fines are up to $11000.00 per violation. It is so simple. It would put a stop to this nonsense of employing illegals. It has been the law since 1986 but no enforcement on a broad scale. We don't need fences we need employment verification and immediate fines for violations.
