Liberals always lie. That is how they win elections. Boob bait for bubbas. Class warfare. Call it what you like. Liberals lie. They lie about immigration issues obviously. I have one for you today.
Tim Rutten, a columnist for the lying Los Angeles Times had a nice lie today. He was angry about Obama forcing American Apparel to fire some 1,800 illegal aliens working in their factories in the LA area. http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/la-oe-rutten3-2009oct03,0,1663738.column (h/t American Patrol http://www.americanpatrol.com/)
As typical liberals lie, Rutten is particularly brazen. He obviously knows nothing about immigration other than Mexicans good, whites bad. Here is his particular lie about the Obama action in LA:
"(Previously, federal immigration authorities had probed only employers alleged to be routinely violating health, safety or labor laws.)"
That is a doozy. That was never true. Getting raided by the late INS or the current ICE is rare, but almost never were there any other considerations other than the presence of illegals. In my years with the late INS I never heard of these other issues. They were just not in the late INS' jurisdiction. Nor has ICE made any issue about other issues. As a matter of fact liberals were claiming that the big raids in Iowa interferred with investigations by other agencies concerning child welfare and labor law violations. Although it is not unheard of for ICE to coordinate with other agencies, but the other issues just are not on their radar or within their juridiction.
So, Tim Rutten, you, like the rest of your LA Times collegues, you are a dirty rotten liar.
On another aspect of this action by Janet Reno Napalitano, with no arrests, only firings, the illegal aliens have not been identified and deported. They openly claim they will stay:
"As one fired American Apparel worker told a reporter this week, 'I'm going to have to go to one of those sweatshop companies where I'm going to get paid under the table.'"
So, instead of raiding and arresting the illegals, they get to stay for the upcoming amnesty. Thanks for nothing Janet.
