U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) continues its failed policy of auditing employers of illegal aliens, but not raiding, arresting and deporting the illegals who work for those employers. In another case of ICE audit fail, a famous taqueria in the San Francisco Bay Area, El Balazo, decided after an ICE audit to rehire the illegal aliens that ICE forced it to fire.

But their worker base aroused suspicion and eventually a federal investigation. By the time it was over, Marino Sandoval had admitted to federal prosecutors that he knowingly hired employees not legally authorized to work in the United States. Between 2007 and 2008, prosecutors said, the chain employed more than 100 illegal immigrants.
After federal authorities confronted Marino Sandoval with their findings, he rehired at least 10 of the unauthorized employees, prosecutors said.
Nicole Sandoval would later admit to underreporting employees` wages to decrease the businesses` tax burdens and providing false Social Security numbers for them.
The scrutiny would also ensnare Sandoval`s brother, Francisco Sandoval, 56, of Alameda, the former manager of the San Francisco location. He was sentenced in December 2010 to three years of probation and ordered to pay $50,000 to the IRS.
Of course, all of this ICE fail is part of the ongoing Obama Regime Administrative Amnesty. It does tell us that it is not just workers doing jobs Americans won`t, but the result of a business plan, like that of Chipotle or Boeing, which depends on not only paying slave wages, but not funding Social Security and Medicaid as well.
A business plan based on lies and deceit. And not paying other taxes as well. This nation is the victim in this alleged victimless crime.
