Democrats: No Employer Enforcement!

Source: washington times

Now I know I'm all old and junk, so I don't always have the best remembery, howevah, I do seem to recall the (D) type folks blathering on about how delicious employer sanctions would be against those who employ illegals....
Senate Democrats quashed a proposal yesterday that would have dramatically increased civil fines on employers who hire illegal aliens.

Sen. Jeff Sessions, Alabama Republican, offered the amendment to the bill now being debated that would increase the federal minimum wage.

Ridding the economy of illegal aliens, he argued, would do far more to help low-income wage earners than simply raising the minimum wage. Not only do aliens displace U.S. citizens in the work force, he said, they also artificially suppress wages...

But Democratic leaders refused to let Mr. Sessions' alien amendment reach the Senate floor yesterday, and they accused him and other Republicans of offering amendments unrelated to the minimum-wage increase in order to stall passage of the bill.
Oh, I see! These were just what we in the business call "lies." In specific, "Lies that will get our narrow asses elected that we can then break cuz we all that."

Nicely played guys, nicely played. Can't wait to see y'all thrown out on your retarded ears in a couple of years. And all you have to do to make that happen? You're already doing it, thanks guys!

H/T Captain Ed who sez: In fact, the Sessions amendment doesn't replace the minimum-wage hike, but supplements it with the market corrective -- which should have been a no-brainer for Democrats hoping to sell their supposed bipartisanship. Instead, they showed themselves as hypocrites on immigration and posturers on the welfare of American workers
