Border Fence Firm Snared for Hiring Illegal Workers
From:
http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=66...

A fence-building company in Southern California agrees to pay nearly $5 million in fines for hiring illegal immigrants. Two executives from the company may also serve jail time. The Golden State Fence Company's work includes some of the border fence between San Diego and Mexico.

Nothing like a nice hot cup of irony to start start off the weekend.
:rofl:

3. Well, that's been predicted for months now.
I think the Carlos Mencia joke was that the US was going to have all the illegal workers finish the south side of the fence last, then slam the gate behind them.

4. Yeah you're right
I heard Carlos Mencia predict that the workers who would build this wall would mostly be illegal Mexican workers!

The comedians get it right.

I want to see Carlos and Lous Dobbs duking it out right now about this one!

5. Wingers have totally redefined irony
From Smirk complaining about "politics of personal destruction" to Foley leading the exploited children's movement to stuff like this, their stuff is freaking hilarious
