Skip to comments.Colin Powell: Illegal Immigrants Fix My House
Posted on 09/20/2010 3:08:46 PM PDT by Justaham
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."
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."
He added: "They're all over my house, doing things whenever I call for repairs, and I'm sure you've seen them at your house. We've got to find a way to bring these people out of the darkness and give them some kind of status."
Powell did not say whether he's hired illegal immigrants directly or they showed up with contractors.

Too bad they can’t fix your brain, you Affirmative Action Poster.
Shut yer piehole, Powell. We got find some way to get these invaders back to Mexico where they belong. Lies! you bastards all always spouting lies, 24/7. Bring back jobs from China, Kill NAFTA. Thats the only way to bring back Americas prosperity.
Oh, wait I forgot you are part of those America-hating idiots that love the idea of the UN taking over with a NWO. Nevermind.
If the Illegals are no longer illegal, who will fix Colin’s house?
He’s not a moderate Republican . . . he’s a RINO! . . . he already admitted he is a racist by having voted for Nobama, an illegal alien and a traitor . . . Only Nobama has risen higher in affirmative action!
I live in a small city, over 200,000, in the Northwest. Those jobs that American will not do like cut grass and fix plumbing they do.
even if we gave ‘em amesty he just would stiff the new wave of illegal immgrants to take their place, its not like he cant afford to pay legal workers on his six figure income now.
You would think with his career he could have afforded a way better house? Yes I know maybe he is updating it, but just sayin’
He MUST be profiling.
Another example of why Americans are out of work and can’t find any.
What a dirt bag!
> a moderate Republican
As an aside, I never see the state run media talk about “moderate” democRATs.
From their perspective, Republicanism is extreme and requires moderation.
Sort of like Islam.
Colon Bowell passes hot air again.
> who will fix Colins house?
Maybe he can do what I do.
Fix it myself.
And I’m older than he is.
And why isn’t he arrested? We just had several employers in San Antonio TX arrested for giving jobs to illegals (23 of whom were deported). Powell should be doing time along with the lawbreakers he employs.
ANYBODY could beat Saddam Hussein with 550,000 American troops.
They spoke Swedish?
I’m pretty sure he could afford to pay Americans.
Just doing jobs former 4-star generalz won’t do.
