Decent News for Legal Immigrants, For Once « Politics As Usual »

Michelle Malkin has the whole article.*

I'd like to call your attention to the lead paragraph, if I may:

The class action lawsuit was originally filed in United States District Court in March of 2000 under the Federal Racketeer and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) and is the first of its kind in the U.S. where legal workers have sued agricultural employers about intentional wage depression through the use of illegal labor.

I had just finished this paragraph when it hit me: Illegal immigrants don't pay taxes, and very often, the money they earn is sent home to support family members left behind. Thus, illegal immigrant labor is Outsourcing! The money leaves the United States and can't be taxed and redistributed!** I can't believe Democrats aren't up in arms about this and doing all they can to stop it.

*I'm linking Ms. Malkin rather than Lonewacko, whom Ms. Malkin gives the hat tip to, because I want to make sure you read her comments on the whole thing, and you can follow her link to his site without me linking it...oh, wait, I just did link him, huh?

**Nice word that: redistributed. It implies that money isn't earned, it was just distributed in the first place, so the government can re distribute it at will. I'm sure I was the last person to tumble to the additional implications of that word, but that's typical of me.
