Republican congressional candidate Chris Hackett did not break the law by failing to notify federal authorities that his housekeeper was in the country illegally, according to an Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency spokesman.
I think all this chest thumping over immigration is counterproductive. The easy thing to do is to parrot the build a fence and "illegal is illegal" talking points but none of the candidates have offered a real solution. None of them will say it but the implication is that they want to kick millions of people out of the country which will have a devastating effect on our economy. Maybe an issue like this can't be discussed in a rational way during a political campaign and I think that all the candidates in the 10th and 11th Congressional Districts, both Democrats and Republicans, have demagogued this issue-some more than others.
