My Pathetic "Representative".

First, Harry Mitchell gives one of the most clueless political interviews in history. This is not a parody, from the actual interview:

Q: How do you assure Americans that after allowing those who already made it here illegally to stay, that the country will get a handle on continued illegal immigration?

A: You have to realize that people are coming here because there are jobs. Once those jobs are taken by people who are here legally on a temporary status or a guest worker status, there are no more jobs. As long as there are jobs and we don’t have workers to fill them, you’re going to find people trying to cross the border to get here. It’s just pure economics. If there are no jobs here and they are not being hired, where’s the incentive?

Let's see, Harry believes that jobs are not being created; that once they are all filled, that's it, immigration is over. Just like what occurred after the last amnesty program. It's just pure stupidity.

Here is who paid to get this brainiac in Congress, courtesy of My first question is what the hell is ASU doing contributing to a Congressional candidate? Is this what the taxpayers had in mind for their tax dollars? Is this what the donors to the University had in mind? Note that ASU did not contribute to J.D. Hayworth, Harry's opponent in the race.
