Speeches

Mr. Speaker, imagine a place where one can get a job with no identification, no references, no experience. You show up, and after a few hours, you walk away with hard cash in your pocket. No questions asked. You pay no taxes. You pay no Social Security. You pay no health coverage, and at the end of the day, somebody else pays for all of that.

Welcome to your local day labor center funded by American tax dollars, government money to get hoards of illegal day labor jobs with the help of your wallet. Provide that cheap plantation labor for businesses that exploit the law at the expense of real Americans.

But these day laborers don't always work, Mr. Speaker. One in New York partied on cocaine and beer then beat, raped and murdered a woman after a subcontractor hired him to power wash her home. That Guatemalan had been illegally in the United States for 5 years, another example of our government's failure to keep illegals out of America but provide them jobs while they are here.

Mr. Speaker, whose side is our government on? Our government should be buying into America, not selling out to illegals.

And that's just the way it is.
