I Support Mass Arrests Of Anyone Benefiting From Undocumented Labor

A recent surprise immigration raid in Houston at a Shipley Do-Nuts facility is leading to the deportation of undocumented persons.

Will anyone from the company who hired these people be locked up?

What do you think?

It is the vulnerable we punish.

Do people in Houston want cheap doughnuts more than they care about immigration laws?

I bet it’s a close call in many cases. 

How about rounding up people in Houston who gain from the lower prices immigrant labor allows?

We could conduct surprise raids at malls, churches or at an Astros’ game.

We could arrest anybody who has benefited from undocumented immigrant labor.

To see if people are guilty, we could ask if they have purchased anything in the last 10 years.

Anyone saying yes would be detained. 

We could charge them with some kind of aiding and abetting.  

We could pump the stomachs of people who have been rounded up to see if they have been eating doughnuts.

Doughnut eaters would be forced to the border to help build the border fence and in so doing work off the calories from the doughnuts.

It’s time to get tough on the causes of undocumented labor.

  3. I really must be the only person in the world that doesn’t care about immigration.

    I think the issue is a mask. It’s wasteful in resources time and energy.

    Oh, and walls on borders… that’s worked well once, and the wall was built to stand for thousands of years, I don’t think chainlink and plywood will be very affective.

    HA! I’m being bitchy tonight! WHOOHOO!

  4. I think you make sense. I feel we just have to oppose the immigrant-bashers so they don’t hold sway on the issue.
