Recent restaurant raids show immigration agency's new strategy - Springfield, IL - The State Journal-Register

This article from Springfield, IL discusses the new enforcement strategy for immigration. That is to audit the I-9 files of employers all over the country and to fine the employers and putting the undocumented workers in deportation. This is what restrictionists say they want (although I'm not holding my breath waiting for them to praise the Obama administration). But it also has to be what reformers want because even though it is painful...change is not going to come until more powerful economic interests start to be affected by our antiquated immigration policy.

When popular restaurant chain names start appearing in articles like this with big fines next to their names - that is when you know reform is on the way.
