    “Today's actions send a strong message to U.S. businesses that hire and employ an illegal workforce: ICE will enforce the law, and if you are found to be breaking the law, you will be held accountable,” said Thomas D. Homan, ICE Deputy Director and Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Director. “Businesses that hire illegal workers are a pull factor for illegal immigration and we are working hard to remove this magnet. ICE will continue its efforts to protect jobs for American workers by eliminating unfair competitive advantages for companies that exploit illegal immigration.”

One look at why and how zoning has become a focus of property owners.

If this is not behind a pay wall, here's a think piece about how property owner opinions on their rights to have a say in community development evolved. While it doesn't set out to change anybody's opinion, having it in mind helps me understand why I hold certain value judgments. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/03/upshot/zoning-housing-property-rights-nimby-us.html?comments#permid=25419406

    How 'Not in My Backyard' Became 'Not in My Neighborhood'
    In Seattle, the neighbors don't want apartments for formerly homeless seniors nearby. In Los Angeles, they don't want more high-rises. In San Jose, Calif., they don't want tiny homes. In Phoenix, they don't want design that's not midcentury modern.

Garbage disposal

In the summer I was told by the Aldermans office that if I have stuff other than routine garbage (rugs, couch, tables, mattress etc). I was told to give them a few days advance notice. When I recently called, they now say that this stuff is no longer picked up and I would have to hire a private company. Does anyone else have this problem? I took rugs out and I don't know what to do with them.

  • paul in jefferson jefferson park resident

    Arena gave the right answer, thanks Katiie.

  • I took a little bit of everyone's advice. I called 311 and this morning they picked up the old carpeting. Thanks to everyone's input. Is great to be able to work with the community. .. May everyone have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year's.
