A Missouri-based immigration reform activist believes Governor Matt Blunt did the right thing in firing a state janitorial contractor this past spring that was employing illegal aliens. But now the contractor is making claims of racism.

Missouri's chief executive faces a lawsuit claiming racial discrimination and abuse of power for the March 6 sting at a Jefferson City state office building by federal and state law enforcement officers. Four of the eight charged in the raid have pleaded or been found guilty of possessing forged documents showing they could work in the United States.

Have you ever notice that the only people that use the race card are guilty of some sort of crime or they are most racist people of them all.

I would say that is an accurate assessment.

While I don't think the contractor's case has any merit it may in court depending on who the judge is that's going to hear the case. Many liberal judges out there are very pro-illegal alien and would love to have this case on their docket.

Hmm.. anyone wonder why these sorts of things are happening in states that don't have as big illegal population as, lets say, California?

What a joke. If you don't want to play by the rules pull out the race card and sue. They should be thrown out of court and fined for wasting time.

Default law is law

This was good but now lets see what the judge says for the lawsuit. If judges are bought and anyone can sue, local enforcement doesnt matter anymore.
