Not a lot of money in anarchy, more like a labor of love (irony), you really need that support system at home. :thumb:

File this under “damned if you do, damned if you don’t”

Dunkin Donuts is pulling franchises for not using e-Verify when hiring workers (a stipulation in their franchise contracts

Over/under on how long it takes Dunkin (and maybe even e-Verify) to be branded as racist?

A brand new building with a Dunkin Donuts closed out here after less than 3 months in business. I figured it was just because they sucked, but after seeing this, maybe not,

BTW - many on the left have been saying all along that if you want to curtail illegal immigration, go after the employers.

Maybe lock some of them in cages, or take away their children when they employ illegals - I am sure Barron would be happier out of the White House, anyways

Good for Dunkin Donuts.

But now the quandary .... in response to Jon above: is Dunkin Donuts doing the right thing by denying employment to illegals still the way forward for "many on the left", or is it racist and anti-immigrant?

I mean, if paroling them into the country is the humanitarian thing to do, shouldn't giving them employment also be the humanitarian thing to do... since they surely don't partake of need-based public assistance (snicker)?

I especially love people characterizing Quillette (who this journalist works for) as right-wing by Huff Poop and The Guardian even though it's about the consummate leftist outlet aside from not drinking the inersectionality kool aide on race and sex transgender issues.
I actually saw CNN devote a pretty good bit of time to that story this morning; including interviewing the guy who was assaulted. The interview was very friendly to him. The segment was definitely a negative portrayal of Antifa.

:lol: They've also been getting close to offending SJWs and the leftists. Last week, an anchor called a woman a woman. She was NOT happy about that.

Weeks ago, a reporter said Trump gets triggered more than the "snowflakes at UC-Berkeley." :lol:

Wait a minute, I thought this upswing in migrants from Central America had nothing to do about economic considerations and had everything to do with these people fearing for their lives amid chronic gang violence in their own countries? Isn't that what they're seeking asylum for in the first place? If that's the case, how would a lesser job opportunity in America dissuade these folks from fleeing certain death? :coffee:

TPS has been extended 4 times- none of the extensions had anything to do with the 80s civil war. One was due to hurricane Mitch

The idea of El Sal being a place people need asylum from is a goddamn joke

I lived there with the same pay differential as Ecuador or Casablanca. Saigon is 10% higher.

El Salvador is not a country anyone needs asylum from

I think "All" is a bit of a stretch, but I wouldn't be shocked that a super high majority (90% plus) is just people wanting to have a better life than where they live. And I can't blame them for it either. If you could live in the US or live in a 3rd world nation, wouldn't you choose the US every time? But the complication comes if we want to operate like that wouldn't that open us up to even more migration? Where would it stop? In theory, after Haiti had that bad hurricane/earthquake thing a few years back (the one where the ABCNews story detailed all the cronyism and "Friends of Bill" thing with Hillary as SoS and the prioritizing of contractors who were also donors), who would argue that the USA is a better place to live than Haiti and shouldn't we have then just moved every single person from Haiti to the US? I mean, that's 10-11 million people, but isn't that the humane thing to do? :roll:

Two different questions.

If we are giving them asylum, and letting them stay in the country until their hearing, it would not be outrageous at the same time to give them a temporary work permit (if they have a job, address, etc less likely to get "lost".

And no, it is not racist to verify legal status, as long as you are doing it for every single person that you hire (which my company does).

They already can get a temporary work permit if their hearing is pending for 150 days.
