From the Old News, Late Post File: Why the Right Refuses to Effectively Address the Immigration Issue

Molly's "Immigration 101"
"...should you actually want to stop Mexicans and OTMs (other than Mexicans) from coming to the United States, here is how to do it... put the CEO of that corporation [that hires illegal immigrants] in prison for two or more years for violating the law against hiring illegal workers... You can also imprison the corporate official who actually hired the illegal and, just to make sure, put some Betty Sue Billups -- housewife, preferably one with blonde hair in a flip -- in the joint for a two-year stretch for hiring a Mexican gardener. Thus Americans are reminded that the law says it is illegal to hire illegal workers and that anyone who hires one is responsible for verifying whether or not his or her papers are in order. If you get fooled and one slips by you, too bad, you go to jail anyway. When there are no jobs for illegal workers, they do not come."
Enforce laws against corporate America? Blasphemy!

Our Fake Immigration Crisis
"When Wal-Mart was busted for hiring undocumented workers, did anybody boycott the company for it? Of course not; consumers value price and aren't concerned, for the most part, about how a company accomplishes cheapness. If, however, people do really care about keeping all jobs open to American citizens, then there is only one effective strategy: Level the playing field by enforcing labor laws."
Enforce laws against corporate America? Heresy!

Sheanc, Sheanc, Sheanc, every righty tighty whitey in america knows that cutting off jobs for illegals won't help. They don't come here to work, they just come here to have babies and get on welfare. And to suggest that anyone in corporate america would ever consider breaking the law or doing something unethical to maximize profit is simply insane.

...just practicin' my troll talk in preparation for the big switch, resistance is futile!!!
