Patriotic company threatened

A House Democrat threatens Cintas corp. over its efforts to avoid employing illegal aliens.

The main downside of this month's election result is that we no longer have a powerful voice anywhere in the government for dealing with illegal immigration. The Democrats as a party don't want to do it. Bush doesn't want to do it. Nobody lately has wanted to do it except the House Republicans, and they're in the minority now.

The only group that wants to do it is the American public. Pressure organized on the internet has stiffened Congressional resistance to amnesty plans in the past. The same pressure can get us what we really need -- a border wall, employer sanctions with real teeth, and no amnesty -- but it will need to be relentless.

OMG! Well that's just ridiculous! People who can't prove they're citizens or can legally work in this country ought to be fired. And sent to their country. The only discrimination there would be the same used in discriminating between anyone either abiding by or breaking any of our laws. I mean, laws besides that lil' one against entering the US illegally. Grrr! I came here to be amused by your sharp wit, Infidel, and now I'm just grumbly. Tsk. I'm a registered Democrat, but ashamed of and angered by this party's non-stance (nonsense?) on illegal immigration. Not that a silly wall would be good without people to patrol, who have the ability to do something besides wave at the illegal immigrants, or without backing up existing laws. But the thought at least shows interest in the well-being of this country. *surfs aimlessly away... mumbling n' grumbling*

Sad, isn't it? I'd be the first to condemn discrimination by ancestry (always remember that most Hispanic people in the US aren't illegal aliens, and many illegal aliens aren't Hispanic), but if we can't discriminate between legal and illegal, we've crossed the line into lunacy.

A security barrier, by the way, might be more effective than you think. The one Israel has built around the West Bank has cut off most of the flow of suicide bombers from there, and the typical suicide bomber is probably more motivated than the typical illegal alien.
