All Obama is going to have to do in a debate with Mitt is bring up the illegals he had working for him.
We know how well that will go for Mitt.
Perry should lift that line from America’s Mayor and tell it like it is.
Just take the whole thing verbatim and be done with it.
Sanctuary Mansion, et all.
By the way why aren't they releasing the names of companies in Texas that hired illegals anymore? And why isn't Perry pressuring them to do so if he is so opposed to illegals?
Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials have decided that they are no longer releasing information to the public on companies fined for hiring illegal immigrants.
Despite talking tough about cracking down on employers who break federal immigration laws, ICE is withholding the names and other identifying information about the companies it penalizes, essentially protecting them from public scrutiny.
Richard Rocha, an ICE spokesman, said ICE attorneys have advised them not to disclose information about the fines because of a pending case before the Supreme Court that looks at whether corporations have a right to personal privacy.
Wed make the argument, however, that there is a public interest in learning which companies were fined. We have a copy of the list of companies hit with civil fines from 2007 through mid-July and, which was converted into a database and published here on the blog. (To view this database, click on the continue reading this post link at the bottom.)
For example, Westex Well Services, a company headed up by Texas Tech University Regent Mickey Long, paid $60,984 to immigration officials earlier this summer. (Thats the 16th largest fine nationally and the third-largest in Texas since 2007.)
Long was appointed to his regent position by Gov. Rick Perry in February 2009. He has contributed $135,000 to Perrys campaign over the years and is listed as his co-chair for fundraising based out of Midland. (Long did not return phone calls to his home or business seeking comment.)
There are some big names on this list of 220 companies: Koch Food of Cincinnati, LLC ($536,046), Johnson Dairy LLC out of Colorado ($100,800), and American Rice Inc. of Texas ($5,486). end excerpt
Come on Perry, show us how tough you are on illegals and those that hire them. Release the names of the companies so that the free market can work and people can boycott those companies if they want.
