Zenophobic Hypocrites

"In Georgia, state lawmakers are pressuring Mexican immigrants by considering a special tax on those who wire money abroad and can't prove legal residency. At the same time, Georgia construction industry representatives admit they need foreign workers and ask not to be held accountable if their subcontractors are caught hiring the undocumented."
If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times: if they were serious about addressing the illegal immigration issue, they would prosecute the business owners who violate the law by hiring illegal immigrants. But no. Those who claim to want to stop illegal immigration are so often merely hypocrites who want to violate the law with impunity.
