    So instead of rounding up illegals, and kicking them out, LA is requiring companies to build them a pub. :rofl:

    Home Depot, Others Required To Make Day Laborer Shelters

    LOS ANGELES -- Big-box, home-improvement stores in Los Angeles will have to set aside space for day laborers under an ordinance passed by the City Council on Wednesday.

    When the ordinance takes effect -- the mayor has to sign it, and most city laws take effect 30 days afterward -- it will apply to stores such as The Home Depot that have 100,000 square feet or more, or any structure where 250,000 square feet or more of warehouse floor area is added.

    The shelters must be easily accessible and include drinking water, bathrooms, tables, seating and trashcans. The stores may be required to work with Los Angeles police in developing a security plan, according to the unanimous vote by the 15-member lawmaking body.

    People who live near Home Depot stores have complained of day laborers drinking beer, urinating in yards or other unseemly behavior.

    Sounds as though in the absence of a consistent national policy a method to keep folks from pissing all over people's lawns and trying to keep the cheap labor in one place.. easier for the contractors and easier for the ICE people if they choose.

    Nope, Home Depot is private property, that is why they wait there, need a warrant, you just can't show up and arrest them.

    Now what the LA has just done, is basically make Home Depot break the law, because they are now going to be "Knowingly Haboring Illegal Aliens" which is punishable by not only prison, but seizure of the harboring properties.

    BTW-thought for the day...

    CALLING AN ILLEGAL ALIEN AN UNDOCUMENTED WORKER, IS LIKE CALLING A DRUG DEALER, AN UNLICENSED PHARMACIST

    Ted is a joke who's time is passing. Now that we all know his hate topics, he's running out of issues to post about.
