Eleuterio, the name of their illegal, has learned well that he is doing "the work no one else wants to do." Now he needs to learn "he is the person no one wants in this country."
"This is going to hurt everyone," said Eleuterio, a strawberry picker and father of two who didn't want his last name used. It ain't going to hurt me or anyone I know, but the poor innocent knew enough not to use his real name, just like he knew to use some American citizen's social security number.
"It doesn't deal with the reality of the service needs of this state, which depends heavily on illegal immigration," said Mike Garcia, president of the local Service Employees International Union. "If you try to remove these people, whole industries would go belly under."
Sure, Garcia, that's what they said when we tried to pass child labor laws. It didn't happen then and it won't happen now.
Zoe Lofgren, Democrat San Jose, noted that although the White House is enforcing laws already on the books, reforming those laws would have been the best solution. I'm sure that's the liberal sow I want to get my lesson in government from.
"The impact is apt to be a significant one in several aspects of the economy," she said.A Democrat lecturing on the economy going south (pardon the pun). That won't happen unless you guys get to repeal all the tax cuts and drive the middle class to the poorhouse.
And, of course, we have Eleutrio once again saying, "This is going to ruin families." Well, Eleuterio what ruins families is when the head of the house sets a bad example like breaking the law. Wake up and smell the cafe ole.
