TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Already facing a severe labor shortage, landscaping businesses that can’t keep up with booming demand for backyard patios and fire pits worry that an immigration raid that rounded up over 100 people last week will make it even tougher to persuade Congress to allow more foreign workers into America for seasonal jobs.

Owners of landscaping companies near Tuesday’s sting in the Lake Erie resort city of Sandusky and nearby Castalia, which targeted workers with forged documents in one of the largest actions at a workplace in recent years, said it sent a shiver of apprehension through their industry.

“I believe most of us are doing things the right way, but every company is going to be worried that they’re going to be raided,” said Joe Drake, who runs JFD Landscapes in Chardon, also in northern Ohio.

The article goes on to state the following:

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said that it expects to charge the 114 workers arrested last week at Corso’s Flower & Garden Center with identity theft and tax evasion and that the employer also is under investigation.

Corso’s released a statement Friday saying it demands proper documentation from its employees and ensures they pay taxes. It also said that if anyone used false identification documents to get a job, the company was not aware.

NOTE: Over 100 illegal landscape workers rounded up, and that’s not even scratching the surface. It’s INSANE!

TAKE ACTION TODAY: Please help us send a message to President Trump and Congress that MANDATORY E-VERIFY must be implemented NOW! President Trump must STOP THE FLOW of illegal immigrants into the U.S. by CUTTING OFF THE JOBS MAGNET that brings them here.

A set of powerful, eye-opening documentary films, titled, “They Come to America I, II and III,” produced by filmmaker Dennis Michael Lynch, shows you the border and the costs of illegal immigration in a way you’ve never seen before. These three films are now packaged into one complete DVD case, called the “TRILOGY.”

  1. Order the TRILOGY DVD set TODAY. You will receive a second FREE Trilogy DVD set to send to President Trump or the lawmaker of your choice.
  2. Send your free Trilogy DVD set to the White House, along with a note stating that the DVD set is NOT A GIFT, but critical information which President Trump and Congress needs to see. In your BRIEF note, tell President Trump that he must issue an executive order to implement MANDATORY E-VERIFY laws for every U.S. employer.
  3. SIGN THE PETITION asking for MANDATORY E-VERIFY. Note: After signing the petition, you must immediately check your email and click the confirmation link in order to validate your signature.

PETITION UPDATE: 17,811 people have signed the petition as of Sunday evening. 82,189 more signatures are needed by June 13, 2018 to get a response from the White House.

    Simple solution, hire them legally otherwise KICK THEM OUT!!!

    Cancel all landscapings jobs. We have no employees. They were all illegals.

    Hire our children & grandchildren for those landscaping jobs. They are on summer break and could use the money. Even adults needing a job would mow lawns if you didn’t expect them to work for pennies on the dollar like the illegals do. These employers paying illegals under the table should be prosecuted.

    People it’s not just mowing lawns! These people build retaining walls, cut trees, plant flowers and operate heavy machinery sometimes. You can’t hire kids on school vacation. But they should hire Americans not illegals then they wouldn’t have to worry about being raided!
