Guilty of Irony
The president of Riverside's Golden State Fence Company, and the company's manager, were sentenced yesterday to 1,040 hours of community service and three years of probation, after pleading guilty to knowingly hiring workers illegally in this country. Both also received six figure fines.
A construction business in California knowingly hiring undocumented workers? Happens every day, right? How is that news? you ask.
As the AP notes, Golden State Fence "once helped build a fence to keep illegal immigrants from crossing the Mexican border".
Apparently all those jokes about using Mexican laborers in the U.S. to build a fence to keep Mexican laborers out of the U.S. are true. Still not funny, but true.
