Last week Dana Rohrabacher, the immigrant-bashing Republican congressman from Huntington Beach, California, suggested we don't need cheap migrant labor to keep our economy running.
We do not need more people from foreign countries coming in taking the jobs of Americans and bidding down our wages. We can do those jobs, even in the fields. The millions of young men who are prisoners around our country can pick the fruits and vegetables. I say let the prisoners pick the fruits.
When Rohrabacher said this, was specifically thinking of Duke Cunningham, Jack Abramoff, Tom DeLay and his staff, and all the other Republicans who will soon be joining them singing the blues on the chain gang?
