Employers of illegals should be responsible

Dear Editor:The city of Stamford, Conn., is currently being sued by Connecticut Citizens for Immigration Control for installing “no hassle” zones for the convenience of illegals waiting to be picked up for a day’s work. The operant law, 8 USC 1324, makes it a felony with heavy fines and/or up to five years’ imprisonment for aiding an illegal to come/stay in the U.S. I’m wondering when a victim of an illegal worker, such as the widow of Denver police officer Donald Young, will begin suing for wrongful death. A tavern owner carries dram shop insurance – employers of illegals need to be equally responsible.Vicki MartinClearfield, Utah
