Protecting criminals

March 22, 2009 

I was infuriated by your March 15 article "I'm taking the job you wouldn't do," infuriated because I don't understand the concept of "illegal" except to mean against the law. It is against the law for "Louise" to employ these people, yet she does so and then is protected by your newspaper for doing so? How does that work? Why are we protecting those who employ others illegally?

U.S. citizens should be very angry! So many out of work, and Louise is employing illegals. Maybe her citizenship should be revoked. It's anti-American and, oh, yes, against the law. How does she, and so many others, get away with this? It's a crime! And a crying shame.

Shame on you all for hiding behind freedom of the press to not only cover, but actually promote this type of activity by giving it major space.
