    IL: Immigration advocates protest employer rule

    Immigration advocates protest employer rule
    Tribune staff report

    5:00 PM CDT, August 28, 2007

    About 25 immigrant advocates rallied outside the Metcalf Federal Building in the Loop on Tuesday to protest a pending federal rule that cracks down on illegal hiring.

    Next month, thousands of so-called "No Match" letters are expected to be sent to employers under a new Department of Homeland Security policy that seeks to weed out illegal immigrants who use fake Social Security numbers or stolen IDs.

    The rule requires employers to clear up discrepancies in a worker's identification within three months or face possible fines of as much as $11,000 for each illegal hiring.

    Chanting "No more 'No Match,' " the protesters argued that the rule will trigger unwarranted layoffs by employers wanting to avoid potential headaches. Supporters of tougher immigration enforcement have applauded the new policy.
