Cheating Americans With "Virtual" Laws
It was a bad week for the advocates of amnesty and guest worker.
On Tuesday (12-12), the Bush Administration finally cracked down, 20 years late, on a few thousand of the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who are illegally employed in the United States. This crackdown on employers was promised by the Reagan amnesty of 1986 and now, 20 years later, the government is getting around to enforcing the law.
The feds arrested thousands of illegals who were working at Swift & Co. meat-processing plants under false Social Security numbers. Swift announced that it might have to shut down for lack of workers.
The media immediately opened the TV channels to pro-immigration activists who claimed that these arrests "prove" the need for "comprehensive" immigration legislation with a guest-worker plan. Au contraire. Wednesday's news (12-13) proved just the opposite.
Within hours of the news that 261 illegals had been removed from the Swift plant in Greeley, Colorado, American citizens lined up to fill the vacated jobs. The county employment agency received 230 job applications, of which 157 were specifically for Swift.
Please read the whole column. (In addition to showing the "guest worker" movement as the sham that it is, it also shows the Wal-Mart bashers clearly don't know what they are talking about either)
A great Christmas present to unemployed Americans would be the deportation of our illegally working criminal alien population. Imagine starting the new year with thousands of job opportunities opening up for America citizens who had a rough Christmas due to unemployment.
Where is your compassion for these American citizens you sick liberals and you sick Wall Street Journal Republicans? You would starve Tiny Tim so that Jorge Gonzalez, an illegal who stole the SSN of Tiny Tim's dad, can work here illegaly and send money back to Mexico.
