Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What! You too? I thought I was the only one.

There's a post over at TPM about a recent immigration raid that nabbed about 1,300 Mexicans. For the most part, those apprehended in the raid will be deported. The sad part is that the vast majority of illegal immigrants want nothing more than to work hard, feed their children, and take care of their families - something that is clearly impossible for them in their home country. And if they were citizens, they'd be gladly paying their taxes, too. As it is, we'll just have to be content with them buying American products and paying rent to American landlords. That is, if we're not deporting them en masse.

But here's the really depressing part: no charges were filed against Swift, the American meatpacking company who had illegally hired them. Of course. It makes perfect sense.
