CA Fence Building Company Hired Illegal Aliens to Build Border Fence

GOI: This story is the ultimate irony and I couldn't help but laugh my ass off. A southern California fence building company that received contracts to build portions of a border fence between the U.S. and Mexico was hiring illegal immigrants!!

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 14 (AP) — A Southern California fence-building company and two executives pleaded guilty in federal court Thursday to knowingly hiring illegal immigrants and agreed to pay a combined fine of $5 million, the government’s latest coup in a crackdown on businesses.

Golden State Fence, which currently employs 750 people, saw sales soar to $150 million in 2004 from $60 million in 1998, according to a biography of Mr. Kay provided by the company. Among its projects was construction of part of a 14-mile border fence in San Diego in the late 1990s.

Classic irony. Reminds me of the thing that parents tell kids, do as I say, not as I do.

This is the end of satire as we know it.

Indeed. Money trumps all in America it seems.


Good old capitalist, red, white and blue irony.


Sadly, no.


Exactly. That's pretty much the slogan of the GOP. At least most of the time it seems.


Such a terrible waste.
