As an immigration lawyer I totally disagree with your editorial scolding the government for raiding Walmart, by defending their need for undocumented immigrants. If you read the news articles, Walmart had hired outside agencies that were employing the aliens at wages as low as $2 per hour. Then the senior management had attempted to protect their actions with the "I didn't know they were not legal to work here"; while the BICE had them on tape with full knowledge of what they were doing. Stop defending Walmart's actions, that it showed that employers need undocumented aliens, that's the wrong message to send that it's okay to pay immigrants $2 per hour because the immigration system is messed up. Walmart management should bear the full impact of the law for their greed; that's the message.
I have critized the BICE and BCIS for chasing and deporting the aliens, when they should concentrate enforcement on the US employers. Here the government did it's job, and save the 9/11 Al Queda card for another argument. The war on terrorism has nothing to do with the governments rightful enforcement of corrupt US employers taking advantage of the undocumented aliens.
