Statement by Governor Romney:"Today, I fired a landscaping company that I learned was employing people who are not permitted to work here in the United States. After this same issue arose last year, I gave the company a second chance with very specific conditions. They were instructed to make sure people working for the company were of legal status. We personally met with the company in order to inform them about the importance of this matter. The owner of the company guaranteed us, in very certain terms, that the company would be in total compliance with the law going forward.

“The company's failure to comply with the law is disappointing and inexcusable, and I believe it is important I take this action."

- Governor Romney

Letter of termination:

Governor Mitt Romney

December 4, 2007

Mr. Ricardo Saenz

Community Lawn Service

174 Shurtleff St.

Chelsea, MA 02150

Dear Mr. Saenz:

Today I learned that employees of your company, who were assigned to work on my property, are not permitted to work in the United States. Given your company’s disregard for the clear instructions provided on this issue last year, I am forced to terminate my contract with your company, effective immediately. My family will no longer utilize your services and all scheduled visits are cancelled as of today.

I am disappointed that our relationship must end on this note, but we simply cannot tolerate your inability to ensure that your employees are legally permitted to work in the United States. Thank you for your assistance.

He could really spin this to his advantage by when asked about firing them now, he could say something to the effect, what else could I have done? Ignore the problem and hope it goes way or offer to let their children go to college for free?

Nice idea for the spin. :)

In AZ there has been a whisper campaign going on about how all the illegal immigrants are leaving the state in droves, 100 per day one story mentioned, due to the fact that in January a law will be enacted that will punish all employers who do hire someone without proper paprwork. It is hard to say who is behind it (Do they want us to think it is working and a great law or do they want us to feel sorry that we are turning people out during the holidays? I don't know.) but this will be a very interesting development in the coming months.
