Charles Jenkins, Frederick Maryland County Commissioner, is expected to introduce legislation that would fine people who get building permits and hire illegal aliens.
Business groups are coming out against Jenkins saying that there are already laws on the books for dealing with employers of illegal aliens. We see how good those laws are enforced though. Maybe if those same business groups got behind enforcement taken against employers of illegal aliens people would take them a little more seriously, and local officials wouldn't have to keep putting forth ordinances and legislation, but we know that will never happen.
Frederick County Commissioner Charles Jenkins is calling for penalties for local businesses that hire illegal immigrants.
He is talking to the county attorney about a plan to audit local businesses that receive building permits from the county. Under his proposal, businesses that use illegal workers could be fined and the workers would be fired.
Jenkins expects to introduce formal legislation by early next month.

Arizona is penalizing those who hire illegal aliens! Hooray, but wait. I live in California. Besides those returning to their home countries I wonder where the rest of the illegals are going to go? Sigh. Omgosh, hey CA law makers, hurry and match Arizona's law.
The reason "undocumented" bothers me. It sounds like someone misplaced their documents or the documents kept in one's house were lost in a house fire - oh, I can't find my documents, I'll have to write for them(?).
These people have plenty of documents but never received the pertinent document; permission to live in the US.

What is the point of continuously passing laws that are not enforced? They make the open borders crowd nervous until the day after the law takes effect and then becomes obvious it is just another uneforced law.

Well one of these businesses is the double T diner, they have plenty of illegal aliens working in that establishment. I used to work there.
