      Not just arrested, this family needs to be completely shunned by the community, these scumbags are stealing from every one of us.
      Run them out of town and take everything from them. Only when the consequences of this type of crime cost them everything, only then will they consider the impact on the rest of the community.
      If you use illegal labor in your business, you are scum.

    Don’t put me in the position to tell these nice people they can’t stay, I don’t hire them. We have an illegal employer problem not illegal worker problem. Attacking the user but treating the source of the problem like a victim.
