Welcome to the New World.

This is our reality. If you're crooked, lazy, lie, cheat...muscle your way, you'll do just fine.

If you do/say/stand up for Truth, you'll be shown the door.

Happened to me when I questioned the company President about fraudulant payroll practise he wanted me to do, and I was fired.

I hope to God this woman gets justice!

In the medical field you are not allowed to talk to outsiders about people etc. You get fired if you do.

The HIPAA privacy policy in the medical field pertains completely to patient confidentiality, not coworker confidentiality . Also, if you read further she never mentioned any thing to her sister such as a medical condition, name, ect.. Thus maintaining a confidential relationship. I think its a shame a school would throw a student under the bus that way, teachers are supposed to encourage, not discourage. There is truly no winner here.

The essential points made by the definition are that we have no control over the southern border with the United States, the illegal menace is still at large long term effects of prolonged flow of illegal's into our nation especially drugs, gangs, and murder.. let me add here over stays are being identified as illegal broken the law, we have approved enough money to deport these over stays about 400,0000 especially those who are felon deal with fugitives, and those picked up at the border. those people come here caring nothing about our laws, family, and occupation or social status, they become a burden to the tax payer people. people deported seem to come back again and commit crimes for instance sex offender crimes, we have to realize that illegal's are not all coming here to work.
The house panel most start to stop illegal's we assume that the bill to assure that mexicans working here are here legally, and pass a house bill increase the fine on employers who hire the workers, moreover Texas must curb, reduce the negative impact on the nations problems.
Texas has benn dragging it feet for well over 30 years and yes, we are at risk given the fact that congress has still to act, taking a step in the direction of action with e-verify a system of a lawful immigration enforcement act, to include state and local officers to verify the legal status of people cited for traffic offences and misdemeanors. No one will benefit more than employers from an immigration overhaul that restores the rule of the law in the workplace. Most employers want to be on the right side of the law – it's their obligation as citizens, and it makes good business sense. Immigration Works strongly supports effective workplace enforcement as a centerpiece of comprehensive immigration reform.

Employers need the federal government to provide them with the means to verify employees' identities and work authorization by comparing workers' identity documents with information in federal databases – either the E-Verify system or a similar program that achieves the same end.
Day after day, the atmosphere of congress of undergoing change, and the Leader is worried and tormented as a man, beset by his own will to give 48 million people from south of the border of America amnesty, what makes it more opposed to this reaction is citizens of the United States of America do not want amnesty, we are seeing the disintegration of this amnesty group, what they can not do and according to some with a memory we come to older people, and we ask what is wrong with amnesty?
