OUTRAGE: Restaurants Give Illegal Aliens Paid Day Off to Protest; Pro-Illegal Grp. Supports Senate Bill
By Debbie Schlussel
Today, we wrote about “Snakes on a Plane.” Now, we’re writing about Snakes in the Senate and Restaurants.
They’re snakes, in the Senate’s case, because they’re going against the overwhelming majority of the American people in not tightening up immigration, once and for all. And in the restaurants’ case, they’re making life cushy for illegals. Here are two outrageous new bits of info about illegal immigrant protests and Senate Immigration legislation you probably didn’t read elsewhere:
1) Yesterday’s Wall Street Journal reports National Restaurant Association senior vice president of government affairs and public policy (that means he’s the head lobbyist), John Gay, said the following about huge illegal immigrant rallies scheduled for Monday, nationwide:
Some of the association’s members, hoping to avoid losing the entire staff for the day, are offering some workers the day off with pay so they can attend the event.
Hmmm . . . a paid day off for illegal alien restaurant workers to go protest. And you thought they were doing the jobs Americans won’t do. Whatever.
2) Yesterday’s Wall Street Journal also reported (in a different article) that the “National Immigration Forum . . . supports the bill.” That should tell you everything. As in it’s NOT a good bill. NIF is a creation of big business, ACLUers, and Hispanic, Arab and Islamic groups. It supports loosening, not tightening immigration controls and enforcement.
