These goobers make me laugh. They pass an immigration bill simply because a few others, who do have a significant immigration problem, did. Lacy doesn't see any negative impact on employers. Of course! They are giving them time to device some new level of sub-contracting to subvert this new immigration law. In the end, people workin on these projects will be what they always were---people who had nothing to do with the actual receiver of goods and services. If it can happen on federal government projects, it can happen anywhere. The states will not be able to avoid charges of racism when it comes to nonwhite sub-contractor employees. Most people don't have DNA data included in their criminal records. I can imagine these states forcing contractors to hire everyone they need for these projects six-months in advance just so that the state can check their fingerprints. Actually, many municipalities have to pay the FBI for this service, but others actually attempt to put a couple of Maybury PD types on the job. Quite a few people have been convicted on lousy fingerprint work.

Behind every political waste of time there's a man wearing a dunce cap. This man is Bobby Harrell, someone who guarantees that undocumented workers will leave after passing this bill. He also blames them for South Carolina's increased unemployment rate, although many states are experiencing the same thing. This is one tall-tale loving redneck, I tell you. Of course, the reason why most employers of undocumented workers hire them is simple. Not too long ago, people in sh*t jobs were unionizing. Now, this is the South. They are right-to-work states (read anti-union as f**k). That's costly to these employers. It might prevent them from...contributing to Bubba's campaign, kno' what ah mean?
