On illegal immigration, the anti-enforcement crowd on both the right and left continually spouts the mindless nonsense that illegal aliens “are only taking jobs that Americans won’t do…” Then they tell us the solution to the crimes of illegal immigration and illegal employment is to repeat the failed amnesty/legalization, path-to-citizenship program of 1986. Transforming the illegal aliens into… Americans.
Locally, our ever-dependable foil, MDJ blogger Kevin Foley, qualifies as one of the above “path-to-citizenship-is-the-answer” described lefties.
In a comment post on a recent blog from yours truly, Foley challenges an old friend, Leah Durant, to produce information showing that illegals take jobs from Americans with “I'd love to see the independent data supporting Ms. Durant's assertion that undocumented workers are stealing American jobs.” As long as this character keeps lobbing hanging softballs over the plate, we will continue to smack them into the bleachers.
It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. We think video is worth even more.
Here is a short CBS Atlanta news video for Kevin Foley from Cobb’s recent past on black-market labor taking the jobs. And criminal employers cheating taxpayers.
And for the members of the Cobb BOC who need encouragement to implement an ordinance requiring that all public contractors be certified through the federal IMAGE program. That no-cost process is opposed by the powerful business lobby including the Chamber of Commerce because it would serve to expose illegal aliens on the contractors payroll.
We lack the time today to post any more links to similar videos. But readers can access some of them on the “videos” page of the under-funded Dustin Inman Society Website.
As always, our gratitude to Kevin Foley for confirming the obvious.
For those of you who haven’t had the dubious pleasure of reading the goop that Democrat hack Kevin Foley of Kennesaw Georgia writes in newspaper columns and blogs at the Marietta Daily Journal, let this serve as an introduction to his typical mindless, liberal race-baiting.
In April, Kevin Foley, a self-described “Progressive” felt the need to take a swing at the Tea Party and Republican congressman Allen West in a newspaper column by explaining to the reader that “Tea partiers like West are failing because they see modern America in monochrome. The country has changed since the Constitution was written, yet tea partiers long for the days of when a man — and only a white man — could do as he pleased, however he pleased.”
Setting aside for a moment that Tea Party members come in all descriptions and colors, what Foley didn’t know (this guy should get out more) – and what he failed to even research – is that Congressman Allen West happens to be a proud black American.
While reading this little gem here, it took this humble writer a couple of minutes to stop chuckling at Progressive-Kevin-Foley-of Kennesaw-Georgia and his obvious play-the race-card, ask- questions-never style of smearing. Apparently, research is for the less gifted.
It gets better. And more insightful.
The MDJ ran a well written letter to the editor in response to Foley’s silly race-baiting from a local Tea Party leader named Jan Barton with an observation on the above that was to the point in asking someone to explain Allen West’s race to Foley (race, skin color and ethnicity are all very important to liberals).
Mrs. Barton’s letter went like this:
Foley proved facts don’t matter

A friend of ours for nearly ten years, Leah Durant is the Executive Director head of “Progressives For Immigration Reform”, an organization that (somebody get out the smelling salts for occasionally accurate Kevin “make-‘em-all-legal” Foley) demands justice in immigration by…enforcing American immigration laws.
You can see Leah and friends in a short video from the PFIR YOUTUBE page and visit the PFIR website to see some common sense positions on immigration as related to what many in the media would like you to believe are separate issues. They aren’t.
Leah Durant rocks!
For those readers who are following the “we must be careful” news story involving the fact that the Cobb County Board of Commissioners started the education process on the federal IMAGE certification process in 2010, announced the intention to apply more than a year ago and publicly signed an agreement with ICE in May, you can see the big ugly bald guy’s public comments (no laughing!) to the Board at Tuesday’s regular meeting and Chairman Tim Lee’s response. Anyone on the Board responding to a public comment is rather unusual.
Be advised that there is zero reason that Cobb cannot require IMAGE certification for all contractors. There is already a state law in place that requires use of E-Verify before a public contractor can have a bid accepted by a public employer like Cobb County. We did that in the Capitol in 2006. And zero reason that an ordinance that has already been sent to the county legal department to be drafted cannot see a vote at the next meeting on Tuesday July 24 – at 7:00 PM.
To many contractors, the terrifying part of the process of becoming IMAGE certified is a federal audit of past hiring documents called “I-9” forms that can expose any use of false or stolen documents – thereby exposing illegal alien workers who are taking food out of the mouths of American workers families.. This is the last thing many contractors want or will sit still for. The Chamber of Commerce and the construction lobby is using all of their considerable power to stall this until they can find an excuse to kill it after the primary election on July 31st.
Serious problems with contractors using bargain basement priced, taxpayer subsidized black market labor have been exposed multiple times here in Cobb County in the past. You can watch a 2010 WSB TV news report – one of several – here. You can also watch a 2011 Fox Five TV undercover report on your tax dollars going to dishonest contractors and illegal aliens.
Two commissioners, Bob Ott and Jo Anne Birrell have already started the ordinance process… three weeks ago. Bill Byrne, one of four candidates for the County Chairmanship, released a media advisory yesterday promising to use the power of the Chairman’s seat to get an IMAGE certification requirement in place. To my knowledge, this is the only candidate to do so. I have no idea where the other two commissioners, Woody Thompson and Helen Gorham stand on the IMAGE certification requirement for contractors. Hmmm…
After spending the last decade on illegal immigration, I can tell you that IMAGE certification is the ultimate tool to insure a legal workforce. Which is why it may never be introduced into the system.
I can also tell you that unless considerable public pressure is exerted on Cobb’s Board of Commissioners, including the current Chairman, this cost-free, 100% effective instrument to root-out the illegal alien infestation in our public-funded work crews will remain a little known, unused tool.
