“We want the employers to wake up here,” she said, “and be on notice that they cannot just keep hiring illegal aliens and getting away with it.

Businesses found in violation of federal law can incur “costly fines, confiscation of property and audits from Federal and State governmentsnot to mention the shame and loss of clients that could come with public exposure of illegal aliens practices,” the news release stated.
