1. This is Obama playing more political games (in my opinion) - he see that amnesty support is shrinking - Americans are more worried about the economy etc. - so he changes his mind…AGAIN and puts up the curtain of compromise which is complete B.S. - he wants the same thing the Senate passed - just a different approach. 2. Gutierrez, the Senate and all those illegal aliens and supporters must just be screaming - Gutierrez screams all or nothing mentality and now ….Obama their Savior turns coat and agrees to piecemeal. 3. Absolutely no talks of anything NONE - if ever -until the border is locked down. 4. In short - I think Obama has taken a path chalked full with exec. orders to prolong having to make any decisions… putting this on the GOP heads until the 2014 and maybe 2016 elections roll around, leaving the illegals leeching of our taxes and entitlements while remaining illegally in the U.S.
….Back in Mexico, even educated and highly motivated deportees often face assimilation hurdles from government red tape to social attitudes, Anderson said. Just obtaining Mexican identification documents, a prerequisite for employment, can be daunting for individuals with no ties to their birthplace.

Suggests Ways to Address ID Theft in New Video
WASHINGTON, DC (September 16, 2013) — In a new Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) video, a former Assistant Special Agent in Charge at U.S. Immigration and Custom’s Enforcement (ICE) examines worksite enforcement and the agency’s neglect of illegal employment. William Riley advocates stiffer penalties, increased resources for ICE, and the expansion of E-Verify for employers.
Preventing illegal employment is a neglected but essential component of effective immigration policy. Riley describes how workers and employers defy the laws prohibiting illegal hiring; how ICE historically has addressed the problem; and how the law could be changed to encourage more employers to comply and to enable ICE to better deter unlawful practices that are harmful to workers and the economy.
“Complaints of illegal employment are the number one complaint received from the public by ICE. There is no end to them; every office is inundated with them,” says Riley.

Commenting on ICE’s effectiveness, Jessica Vaughan, the Center’s Director of Policy Studies, comments, “Currently ICE expends only about six percent of its investigative capacity on worksite enforcement, and as a result we have made no progress in reducing illegal employment and creating more opportunities for underemployed American workers. The Legal Workforce Act (H.R. 1772) introduced by Reps Bob Goodlatte and Lamar Smith and passed by the House Judiciary committee earlier this year would address many of the problems described by Riley, in contrast to the Schumer-Rubio bill, which weakens the E-Verify system.”
