Villaraigosa Gives ICE The Cold Shoulder

In a stunning example of not getting it, Los Angeles Mayor Villaraigosa warns ICE to back off immigration raids:
Villaraigosa accused federal officials of targeting "established, responsible employers" in industries that rely on "workforces that include undocumented immigrants."

"In these industries, including most areas of manufacturing, even the most scrupulous and responsible employers have no choice but to rely on workers whose documentation, while facially valid, may raise questions about their lawful presence," he wrote in the March 27 letter.

He said ICE should spend its limited resources targeting employers who exploit wage and hour laws.
Uh, Mr. Villaraigosa... if the "established" businesses you're referring to are employing illegal aliens then they are not "responsible employers." Also, if the workers didn't come here illegally they wouldn't have to worry about being exploited. Why don't you criticize the real culprit in this problem? Who is that you ask? It's the irresponsible and unscrupulous government of Mexico.
