Brother of U.S. Attorney General Alleged to Have Hired Illegal Aliens

The Carolina Journal Online reports that William Holder, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s brother, may have hired illegal aliens at some, or all, of his McDonald’s franchise restaurants in Wake County, North Carolina.

The news organization uncovered evidence revealing that “some employees stated they did not have a Social Security Card, a green card or any other document that would give them the legal authority to work in the United States.”   Holder has denied knowingly hiring them.  The matter is under further investigation by the paper.  It is unclear – and highly doubtful – whether the matter is, or ever will be, addressed by law enforcement authorities.

The Attorney General cannot be held legally responsible for his brother’s behavior, of course, but one has to wonder whether his relentless crusade to assist illegal aliens was a corrupting influence on William’s alleged actions.  After all, Eric Holder has created within his Department of Justice (DOJ) an organizational culture of permissiveness for illegal immigration and encouragement for those who violate the law.

If it’s proven that Holder was cheating the system by hiring illegal aliens, Wake County residents should wonder if eating at his McDonald’s restaurants is safe.  If illegal aliens are preparing the food without being subject to the infectious and contagious disease screenings required of all legal immigrants, then maybe Holder isn’t serving up the healthy “Happy Meals” advertised.

But we’re really not surprised – the chicken McNuggets have come home to roost.  For 3 ½  years, the President has been using amnesty as political instrument, DHS Secretary Napolitano has gutted most interior enforcement, and Holder has transformed the DOJ into an instrument of intimidation against states that push their own immigration enforcement legislation.

The Obama/Napolitano/Holder unholy trinity of non-enforcement has created a new truth – that violating immigration laws in and of itself is entirely inconsequential.

The message to illegal aliens is “no worries” and the message to businesses – including William Holder’s franchises is – why fuss with following the law?

    If anyone had to follow the law in Obama’s rag tag team,he’d be left with few to run our country.
    His whole administration gets a pass! He just appoints his czars ,uses executive orders to skate them /him
    On to their agenda. Obama has illegals in his family living off public dole. They honestly do not care about our
    Country. Will not be happy till they run it into the ground.

    Maybe we as legal American citizens should break the laws and then file an reverse discrimination suit against the United States Government for profiling which they continually want to use. If illegals can break the law and get away with it then why can’t American citizens do the same. One of the biggest reasons is that we will vote conservative and Obama and his administration need the illegal votes to succeed in his bid for reelection. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this out. The whole administration needs to be eliminated and a new administration be put in their place. After this the president, Eric Holder, Janet Napolitano, and all the people responsible for the downfall of this country should be prosecuted for not upholding the laws of the country, the constitution, and the immigration laws, then put in prison.

    I can’t imagine Eric’s brother is losing any sleep over this. The odds of me winning the lottery (and I don’t play the lottery) is greater then he or the other hundreds of thousands of employers hiring illegal aliens being prosecuted.

    If Eric Holder had to obey the laws against illegals coming into the United States, it would be bad for all of his muslim friends who are coming into the country. He can’t just say that hispanics can’t come in but it’s okay for muslims.
