Opening Arguments

Polling the obvious

This should not be a shock to anybody except the politicians who still think we are all out here desperately seeking "comprehensive" reform:

 A new statewide poll found overwhelming support for stricter penalties on employers who knowingly hire illegal immigrants.

The WISH-TV Indiana Poll released Wednesday night found 71 percent favored such penalties, while 19 percent opposed them and 10 percent were unsure.

Of course, penalizing the employers would actually solve the illegal-immigration problem, and not many Republicans or Democrats want to do that.

Yeah, the old "selective hearing" thing...working hard with your tax dfollars...
I'll bet they'd listen up if it managed to line their podckets nicely.
Wouldn't they?
