Was just being funny parroting Nancy Reagan's motto.
Immigration Reform: Why Business Could Get Burned
At the Conservative Political Action Conference in February, Representative Tom Tancredo [R-Colo.] won a standing ovation for skewering companies
that profit from imported labor. "The conservative movement can either be the voice of principle or it can be the voice of the Chamber of Commerce,"
Tancredo roared. "But it cannot be both."
Facing rhetoric like that, many corporations feel pressured. By opposing the GOP's anti-immigrant faction business runs the risk of ushering in more
Democrats in the 2006 elections. But Tancredo and his allies pose a more immediate threat to business' long-term need for a steady stream of foreign
workers.Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
Interesting conundrum the author writes about. Are they to have us believe the hardliners are going to push through their bill at the expense of
corporate America? They are suddenly becoming Republican populists?
