RICO is a brutal weapon. It has been misused in the past, for example to attack political dissent.
But these suits are legitimate:
- A crime has been committed. If Tyson is guilty, theyâ€™ve violated the Immigration and Nationality Act in order to make money. The technical name for this is â€?enterprise crimeâ€? and of course, itâ€™s â€?Organized Crimeâ€? even if they donâ€™t have guns.
- Tyson made money from it. Tyson has 120,000 employees. (Every dollar an hour that they can lower their average wages is worth roughly a quarter of a billion dollars annually.)
- American workers lost money. (See above.)
- Theyâ€™re suing.
We at VDARE.COM wish them luck.
