Over at Hit & Run, they’re linking to the news that Golden State Fence, the company hired to build the fence on our border with Mexica, has pled guilty to hiring illegal immigrants. The IHT has a slightly longer story. I wonder if stories like the following amuse or depress the Onion’s writers.
Federal immigration authorities audited Golden State’s employee records
in 1999 and launched a criminal investigation after a second audit in
2004. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said last year that 100
employees at the company’s Riverside office were unauthorized to work,
including three who the company had been ordered not to employ after
the 1999 audit.
