ROMNEY EMPLOYS ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS

So it seems, according to this Boston Globe story. Here's the lede:
Standing on stage at a Republican debate on the Gulf Coast of Florida last week, Mitt Romney repeatedly lashed out at rival Rudy Giuliani for providing sanctuary to illegal immigrants in New York City.

Yet, the very next morning, on Thursday, at least two illegal immigrants stepped out of a hulking maroon pickup truck in the driveway of Romney's Belmont house, then proceeded to spend several hours raking leaves, clearing debris from Romney's tennis court, and loading the refuse back on to the truck.

In fact, their work was part of a regular pattern. Despite a Globe story in Dec. 2006 that highlighted Romney's use of illegal immigrants to tend to his lawn, Romney continued to employ the same landscaping company – until today. The landscaping company, in turn, continued to employ illegal immigrants.

Two of the workers confirmed in separate interviews with Globe reporters last week that they were in the country without documents. One said he had paid $7,000 to a smuggler to escort him across the desert into Arizona; the other said he had come to the country with a student visa that was now expired. Both were seen on the lawn by either Globe reporters or photographers over the last two months.
Just doing the jobs that Americans won't do.

The illegals did the fall cleanup , and what happened? A: Nothing! It wasn't the end of the Republic as we know it . Hope that will sink in with the candipanderites, but *sigh* it probably won't . ;D

Says who? I'm sure there are plenty of Americans in this country that would gladly do any job, regardless of the pay. I am tired of hearing people use this as an excuse for illegal immigrants being in this country.

Ron,

It's great to see you checked your left-wing bias at the door to go work for KSPR. Who says the media is liberal??

Anywho, go light a doobie like usually and prepare yourself for President Romney and eight more years of Republican control of Washington. There. Doesn't that feel better?

Illegal immigration will only stop when an employer is punished for hiring illegals...and that will never happen.

The only thing worse than eight more years of Republican rule would be eight years of Democrat rule.

Or is it the other way around?
