Another Lie from Dem Nutroots

Back home from Caleeforneeah, as the Governator would say, and was looking through Waldo's indispensible Virginia Political Blog Aggregator, when I came across this gem:
Ronald Reagan legalized border crossing in the early eighties to increase cheap labor and break American unions.
Now, this is nothing more than a flat lie. To what this nutroots idiot appears to refer is the Simpson-Mazzoli Immigration Control and Reform Act of 1986. As it happens, I was on the Hill (working for Congressman George Gekas) and in the House chamber the first time it passed the House in 1984. And as it happens, too, it was passed by a Democrat-controlled House, under the chief sponsorship of Congressman Romano Mazzoli, a Democrat from Kentucky.

'Course, the far Left never lets facts get in the way of a good quasi-Marxist rant.
