Mitt hasn't been very thorough about screening his employees, now has he:
Republican Mitt Romney, ridiculed by rival Rudy Giuliani for employing illegal immigrants at his "sanctuary mansion," said Tuesday he had fired the landscaper for his suburban Boston home after learning for a second time about undocumented workers laboring on the property.
Waaaaiiit a minute, didn't he just...? Why, yes! Yes he did!
Romney termed the recurrence "disappointing and inexcusable." The company, Community Lawn Service of Chelsea, Mass., did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
The former Massachusetts governor has made combatting illegal immigration a core theme of his White House run.
Maybe he should build a wall fence around his
tennis cour t yard.
Romney said it would "not be American" to check the papers of workers employed by a contractor simply because they have a "funny accent."
Yet the paper, in a follow-up report, said it observed at least two illegal workers on Romney's property the morning after the debate, raking leaves from the grass and debris from the tennis court. The newspaper said it had also observed the same workers during the prior two months.
I wonder if he had them clean the, er, excrement off the dog cage on top of his car. But I digress.
