That's why a guest worker program is the only sane solution to the problem. But it makes too much sense for our demagogues in Congress to get behind while they can posture and perform about "getting tough" and the problem just gets worse every year.

Given the fact that Clarence Thomas has been a permanent lock down
vote for the most reactionary corporate special interests in the
country, is it any surprise that his wife has been collecting
hundreds of thousands of dollars from their so-called "think tanks",
like the Heritage Foundation? But what should raise more than an
eyebrow is the fact that he has lied for the last 20 years on his
financial disclosure forms about his wife's income.

If you, or I, or anyone else we know hid upwards of a million dollars
in income like this we would have already been hauled before a grand
jury. But now that the whistle has been blown, and his corruption and
lying have been exposed, Thomas thinks he can just amend all these
perjured declarations like it's no big deal, claiming he
"misunderstood" the filing instructions.

We have long known that Thomas was totally unqualified to sit on the
Supreme Court. And at a minimum, for him to claim he cannot
understand and truthfully complete a simple disclosure form, this
proves it. Immediate impeachment is the least we should expect.

The motto of the Supreme Court is "Equal Justice Under Law". If those
words are to mean anything, Thomas must be prosecuted just as he
would coldly affirm the conviction of anyone else who did such a

Of course, the other four members of the Supreme Court who last year
voted to throw out elections to the worst of the corporate wolves are
right on Thomas's tail in the need to be impeached department. ALL
five of them deserve to be impeached, included the two most recent to
lie through their teeth about their corporate agenda to get
confirmed, Roberts and Alito, and Scalia who with Thomas secretly
attended swanky Koch brothers soirees.
