Illegal Aliens Use Independent Contractor Status to Evade Enforcement

“At just 20 years of age, Carla Chavarria sits at the helm of a thriving graphic design business, launching branding and media campaigns for national organizations. Some of her projects are so large she has to hire staff,” the LA Times writes.

“Still, Chavarria has to hop on buses to meet clients throughout Phoenix because Arizona won’t give her a driver’s license. The state considers her to be in the country illegally, even though she recently obtained a two-year reprieve from deportation under the Obama administration’s deferred action program.”

California Gov. Faces Decision on Bill to Protect Illegal Alien Criminals

“If Gov. Jerry Brown signs legislation known as the Trust Act, federal immigration authorities will have a somewhat harder time taking custody of people in local jails who are suspected of being in the country illegally,” the LA Times writes.

“The measure, which would prohibit local jailers from holding most arrestees for an additional 48 hours before federal authorities arrive, is not expected to put a large dent in the number of deportations.”

What the White House Got Wrong on Amnesty

“Could the Senate-passed bill on immigration reform decrease the deficit and pad your pocketbook, all while granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants? The answer is no, according to Heritage’s Derrick Morgan, vice president of Domestic and Economic Policy. ‘This is going to increase the deficit,’ Morgan said on Fox Business in response to the White House’s claims on the benefits of immigration reform,” the Heritage Foundation says on its blog.

    What are the chances that Mexico would allow Americans there illegally to use something like “independent contractor status” to evade the law on some technicality. The answer is zero. In this country we celebrate law breaking and pretend it’s some big plus. And then we talk about what solid citizens all these law breakers will suddenly become when they’re given amnesty. Cheat on their taxes, apply for benefits they shouldn’t be eligible for, that won’t happen, right?

    And California continues with cutting it’s own throat by refusing to cooperate with federal authorities on deportation of criminals, some who have committed serious crimes. Then Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein will support amnesty but complain that the federal government should reimburse that state for the generous welfare programs they have created for illegals.

    The saying is wake up and smell the coffee. Unfortunately for California, the pot has boiled over and they have created a huge class of people who do nothing but take from the state, and a lot of misguided liberals applaud the mess they helped create. Maybe the rest of the country will learn from their sorry example.
    Independent contractor has been around for years, in California back in the 1990’s there was a telemarketing job that I did people as independent contractor. A few years ago California was going to crack down on some of its misused. Guess, who opposed it, usually people that complain about illegal immigration but hired workers as independent contractors in construction or day labor work that were here illegality..
