CincyInDC Posted May 5, 2010 Report Share Posted May 5, 2010 Back to immigration: someone I know just had his roof in northern Kentucky re-done. The contractor has 2 roofing crews: 1 American, 1 Mexican. The Mexican worked on the friend's house. 1) should KY State Police (or the local cops) be able to demand papers from the workers while they're nice and visible (as roofers generally are)? 2) if the contractor knows they were illegals what should be penalty be? 3) anyone know what the penalty would be now? I assume whenever I get a job and have to fill out an I-9 there's a reason. 4) what about my friend? is he liable for giving illegals (assuming they are not here legally) work, even though he's working through a contractor to get his roof done? 5) does he get leniency for ratting the Mexicans out? 6) would that require a particular level of certainty? e.g., did he overhear the contractor say "they're my illegals," vs. my friend just disliking brown people and reporting them based on racism.
