Kilgore Gets It Right on Day Laborers

It's good to see that Jerry Kilgore is taking the right public position on the continuing issue of day laborers in Virginia. Local governments should not be in the business of subsidizing the activities of illegal immigrants, and while it would be unfair to smear all day laborers as such, it is unrealistic to suggest that illegals don't make up a sizable portion of day laborers.

This is a sleeper issue that the GOP should get in front of, difficulties over Prop 187 in California to the contrary notwithstanding. We should never disparage those who want to come to the United States legally, as immigration is the sincerest form of flattery. But we should always stand up for enforcement of the law, something both the Clinton Administration and the Bush 43 Administration have failed to do.

Oops! There goes Young again, smearing and attacking a Republican with the facts!
