A bill recently signed into law by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett - Act No. 127 (formerly Senate Bill 637), The Public Works Employment Verification Act - requires all public works contractors and subcontractors with the state to enroll in and use the federal E-Verify electronic employment eligibility verification system to verify the legal work authorization status of newly hired employees in the United States. The text of the new legislation, which will take effect January 1, 2013, is available here: The Public Works Employment Verification Act.
Imagine that, a swing state protecting its jobs from going to illegals? Yes, the list grows without Michigan. Voters in the State House 104 must be happy with their current Corporate Welfare, and illegal alien lovin' Pale Pastel sent to Lansing. Hey! It's their guy that is responsible for obstructing HB 4024 and HB 4026 for us. Let's see if that part of the state is dumb enough to send him back to Lansing this fall. I'll avoid and encourage others to avoid anything that is TC like it's the plague for siding with The Left and illegals over Americans. Guaranteed.
Congratulations, Governor Corbett! Rick Michigan? Well, thanks for being the Snydholm that you promised to be for Michigan. Can't wait for the next election to happen to you.

Yet another story from upside down world that has become known as the State of Michigan, via mLive
This year is different, with a level of fruit crop devastation not seen since the 1940s. Many growers aren't opening their camps this season, leaving migrants in a difficult situation.
I have to ask, has there been anybody excluded or not invited to belly up to the Michigan taxpayer trough? Anyone? Anyone? Hellooooo? That must mean it's a no. Well, I guess the upside to this is that Lansing is at least requiring a frontman to have proper documentation. Thanks Big Agra for stuffing us with boarding your temp pool.
Ah, apple season. You know what that means? Rep. "known as more of a workhorse than a show pony," it's finally safe to reach into your cellar committee where bills go to die and dust off HB 4024 and HB 4026 to send up for a floor vote. It's OK bub, that little cherry secret is safe with me. Just you, and I will know.
Mum's the word. ;-]

Just about every reasonable, fair-minded, law-abiding citizen of the United States is of the common opinion that anyone who wishes to come to this country legally is welcome to do so. Should such an individual (or such a family) decide during their visit that they'd like to become citizens here . . . well, we have a way to facilitate that very thing. It will require learning about our constitution and history, renouncing one's citizenship in the country that they came from, and otherwise doing what's necessary to assimilate into our society and culture; but if that's what you want to do, then we'll happily accommodate you. Welcome to America.
However, those same reasonable, fair-minded, law-abiding citizens have an issue with those who would come here in clear violation of our immigration laws, compromise our national security, have no intention of assimilating, and will serve no other purpose than to be a legal and financial drain on our society. We know the difference between "legal" immigration and "illegal" immigration, and we never confuse the two (though the left-o-sphere sure as hell does their best to make sure that the uninformed masses do).
If State Representative Dave Agema gets his way next week, then it's going to become a tad tougher to be an illegal immigrant in Michigan.
And after a brief musical interlude, we'll go below the fold.
