It seems Rep Turner is able to look at a man working and determine whether he is in the country legally. That, my friends, is powerful stuff. I’m sending him to a few hospitals in the area to help ferret out those pesky Canadian nurses.
Seriously, I’m with you that companies performing work and receiving Federal funds should make American citizens a priority. I could even get behind the idea of auditing the I-9s of those companies to ensure the same. But to give credibility to the argument that we can look at someone and determine their immigration status is not only a rookie mistake, it is a dangerous one.
