Skip to comments.Colin Powell denies jobs to Americans

Unemployment is at 9.6%. Jobs are scarce.
Colin Powell took a swan dive into ignominy when he admitted that he hires illegal aliens to work on his house:
WASHINGTON -- Former Secretary of State Colin Powell says illegal immigrants do essential work in the U.S. and he has firsthand knowledge of that -- because they fix his house.
Powell, a moderate Republican, urged his party Sunday to support immigration generally because it is "what's keeping this country's lifeblood moving forward."
This actually qualifies Powell to be a Democrat along the lines of Dianne Feinstein. A hypocrite.
In an interview with NBC's "Meet the Press," he said a path to legal status should be offered to illegal immigrants because they "are doing things we need done in this country."
Like taking American jobs.
In lamenting the party's rightward drift Sunday, he said Republicans must not become anti-immigration and spoke in support of legislation that would give certain children of illegal immigrants a way to become citizens if they pursue a college education or military service.
Ah, there it is again. The conflation of legal immigration and illegal immigration. As though they were one issue.

Tell me one more time, Colon is a Republican?
Actually, he doesn’t know that they are illegal. He is judging them based on their ethnicity.
Colin Powell is obama in a uniform.
I am waiting to hear from the black contractors who got squeezed out from doing Colon’s house work by illegals.
It’s much cheaper labor! It can be a very hard habit to break, for all who, often, hire illegal immigrants over legal workers for any job. E-Verify is so needed, throughout the U.S.
him and peanut boy have been acting up lately.
one ponders the implications.

"Pimped out and ready to excerpt"
