See I Told You So…

TOM POTTER STANDS IN THE WAY OF HELPING ICE IN THE RAID. READ HIS STATEMENT HERE.

“I am angered by this morning’s arrest by federal officers of approximately 150 Portland residents who were working at a local produce company. ..“In this morning’s raid, no Portland police officers participated, and our Crisis Response Team was activated to help families affected.”

The city of Portland doesn’t need to set up a taxpayer paid for hiring hall and day care center for illegal aliens (See post here) the private sector has already done that for them…

Federal agents swept through a major fruit and vegetable processor in North Portland this morning as part of a criminal investigation of a national employment agency’s alleged scheme to hire and employ undocumented workers.

Agents searched Fresh Del Monte Produce at 9243 N. Rivergate Blvd. and two offices of American Staffing Resources, the target of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement probe, after an investigation that began last December.

CALL YOUR SENATORS AND CONGRESSMAN: NO SHAMNESTY, SCAMNESTY, AMNESTY!

Thomas Sowell in his Townhall piece today (here) makes his usual excellent points:

The first of these frauds is the argument that the economy “needs” illegal immigrants to fill “jobs that Americans won’t take.” Both parts of this argument ignore the most obvious three-letter word that is left out: Pay.
Virtually any job is a job that Americans will not take, if the pay is low enough. Nor is there any reason for pay to rise if illegal immigrants are available at low pay.
Then there is the “family reunification” fraud which claims that we cannot in good conscience keep out the families of illegal immigrants who are living in the United States but must let those families reunite.
With all the nations on the face of the earth, why is the United States of America the only country in which someone can be united with his family? Illegal immigrants can reunite with their families back where they came from.
The grand fraud of all is the claim that we must have “comprehensive” immigration reform — that is, simultaneously deal with border control and the legal status of illegal immigrants already here.
There is no logical reason why these two issues must be dealt with together, though there are political reasons why elected officials want to do so. Passing border laws described as “tough” gives Congress political cover when they legalize the illegals.

Last year, the sop to the American people was the promise of a fence on the border. This year, the big question is: “Where is the fence?”
