This One Got My Attention
Today's required reading should be entitled, US Feds Extort Dishwasher. I know, he's here illegally. And I agree, he shouldn't be here illegally. But the guy worked hard (earning $5.50/hr) and actually saved $59K, which is more than most Americans do. How long would it take any one of us to save up $59K when we're making minimum wage? I think maybe they should have taken the taxes and applicable fees, given him the rest, and sent him home. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a little hot on the issue of illegal immigration (not just Mexicans, either). But I am TOTALLY FRUSTRATED with government extortion!!!!! It happens every day - to legal citizens! OK, OK, I'm not going to get on my soapbox today. Just wanted to point out that article. Poor guy.
