No. I believe that cutting red tape would greatly help ease the burdens on business and help stimulate the economy. I also am all for tort reform to help stop frivolous lawsuits.

What I'm not for is patting businesses on the head for employing illegal aliens. Call me crazy but I think folks who cut corners like that are cut from the same mold as the Enron executives. Just because regulations are burdensome does not give anyone a license to violate them. This simply penalizes those poor naive souls who actually follow the rules. Or do you think that folks who violate the law should have an advantage over their honest competitors? If so, I don't quite see how that qualifies as conservatism.

I just wanted to point out to you that when you side with the interests of labor over employers, that puts you squarely in the leftist camp.

These "economic" arguments against immigration are just bad. You sound like John Kerry ranting against Judas corporations.
