A bit of a diversion from all the Syria talk, let’s see what Diane
Feinstein Einstein has to say about the illegals. This will be great, since she’s got such grasp of gun control, don’t you know. From Breitbart News:
Senator Diane Feinstein (D–CA) is asking DHS to stop enforcing immigration law when it comes to California’s farm workers:
Immigration and Customs Enforcement has wisely used its prosecutorial discretion to defer removal of young people who arrived in the United States without documentation as children.… I respectfully suggest that you adopt a similar policy of exercising prosecutorial discretion to defer enforcement against agricultural employers and workers.
The move seems especially curious given a recent rise in California’s unemployment rate, as well as an admission that more and more workers are leaving the workforce out of discouragement.
The unemployment rate edges up to 8.7% in July from 8.5%, and payrolls grow by 38,100. But a large number of people also drop out of the labor force.
Legal California residents may not take too kindly to one of their Senators advocating so actively for non-citizens during a period of high and growing unemployment. On the Republican side of the Senate aisle, Senator Marco Rubio has been taking a pounding in the polls for his pro-amnesty positioning.
In April, Rubio enjoyed a +51 favorable rating. Today, the number is down to +33, a significant drop for a popular Republican among base voters. The Senate Gang of 8 amnesty bill was released after the April poll.
A headline at Breitbart says that a record 90,473,000 people are no longer in the work force across the United States, and she wants to keep the lettuce pickers.
Granted, I don’t want to go pick the lettuce myself, but I would if that were the only option, and I certainly deserve a better chance at the job than an illegal does.
Once again, another Democrat who wants to pick and choose which laws we enforce – maybe she and obama are twins separated at birth.
Somebody please dump a bucket of water on this Wicked Witch of the West and put California and the rest of the nation out of our misery.
