Laboring to figure out a solution, or, do illegal immigrants get Labor day off?

Here’s a fun Labor day fact…illegal immigrants compose 5% of the labor force in the good old U.S.A. Yep, 7.2 million folks in the workforce ain’t exactly legal.

Here’s another fun fact..the last year Clinton was President, 417 businesses were cited and fined for hiring illegal immigrants. In 2004 (the last year in which I could find statistics), a whopping 4 businesses were cited.

My guess is that the bizness folks have the trump card on the Pat Buchanan types of this world, if these Bush stats are telling me anything. I’m guessing the Minutemen aren’t getting their funding from agricultural concerns.

To keep these folks out, we better cut back on those pesky immigrant enticers: JOBS.

Here we see the cleaning crew for the new Harding Road Wal-Mart getting ready for their orientation.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again….I’m grateful to live in a country where people want to get in, and not flee.

  1. Wow, 5%. Don’t tell t-fire. They’ll have a hissy fit.

    Interesting how the link says that tightening border security may have increased the number of illegal aliens because people who used to come and go now just stay for fear they will have trouble returning if they go.

  2. and let’s see here – cheap labor, which enforces the argument against raising the minimum wage, and also by not prosecuting companies, the number of illegal immigrants and illegal acts rise, which then allows for the GOP (the Enablers and Deciders for these facts) to whoop up racist fears and for candidates to run on the Protect the Borders!! campaigns.

    genius manipulation. create the crisis you then promise to resolve.
