Let’s say you’re responsible for building a fence across the US-Mexico border. Why do you do it? Well, maybe you’re concerned about maintaining national security and demanding that all people within the borders obey the law. Maybe you want to prevent “the jobs of hard-working Americans from going to illegals”? Regardless of your reasons, you’d assume that the fence-building operation is a strictly anti-immigrant one — after all, the purpose is to keep those illegals on the other side.
Lo’ and behold, a Border Fence Firm Snared for Hiring Illegal Workers.
And what does the lawyer, have to say? NPR news quotes:
Golden State Fence’s attorney, Richard Hirsch, admits his client broke the law. But he says the case proves that construction companies need a guest-worker program.
