I think the whole concept of building a fence is stupid as hell, but found this to be quite ironic nonetheless.
Firm Contracted to Build Fence on US-Mexico Border is Fined for Hiring Illegal Workers

US-Mexico Border FenceOne of the firms working on the US-Mexico Border Fence has been fined $5 million for hiring illegal immigrants. This controversy was ironically predicted by comedians such as George Lopez, who jokingly says in his new act, "They want to build a fence along the border to keep out Mexicans, but who's gonna build it?" Answer: Mexicans.

The Golden State Fence Company will not only pay a major fine, but two of its executives will have to serve jail time for the hirings.

The company's attorney stated that this all goes to show that the country needs to adopt a robust guest-worker program.

I wonder if this attorney has been hunting with Dick Cheney or riding bikes with Bush.
