Law Enforcement Catch and Release

From Texas there is a story of immigration enforcement (ICE) being loath to arrest employers, Audits: ICE isn't cracking down on illegal immigrant employers. This is odd because the Americans already have that deal corporations who re-offend as corporations with more one employee in more than office committing the same range of crimes. The companies could be charged under RICO, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. Unfortunately this law is primarily applied against criminal owned corporations instead of also criminal corporations. There seems to be a difficulty in recognizing corrupt organizations when they're not racketeer influenced.

This piece of news reinforces my belief that illegal immigration is a subsidy for bad employers. That there are also criminal employers who skate by makes them worse not better.

As an aside in The Sopranos the character Dr Melfi commented she thought RICO was a real person from the way Tony was constantly complaining about it/him.
