If Any Woman Deserves To Be President...

It's this woman. Marsha Blackburn was a long time member of the Tennessee State Government, but she has jumped up to the United States House of Representatives. The only disappointment I have is that she isn't in MY district so that I could have the pride of voting for her in Congress. Look at what she (as well as Jack Kingston) has to say to Julie Myers, Assistant Secretary of ICE(via Wizbang!):
Dear Ms. Myers,
As you are aware, pro-illegal immigration rallies are taking place throughout the United States today. Those organizing the rallies have encouraged illegal aliens to refrain from going to work as a sign of protest.
Too often, we presume that fault lies with the illegal migrant worker, but we need to recognize that the employer broke the law by hiring the illegal alien. We believe the Federal government has an obligation to enforce the nation's immigration laws and must actively investigate any and all instances where it is apparent industries have knowingly and willingly hired those who entered this country illegally.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should pursue the multiple reports in the news media today regarding companies which have been forced to halt operations because large numbers of their employees appear to be in the United States illegally and are participating in the protest rallies.
ICE has an obligation to use this public information to enforce immigration laws. We respectfully request that you look into this matter and report back to us on your findings.

Good stuff. I've had the pleasure of attending some of her Christmas parties and actually getting to meet her, and talk with her. She is an amazing woman who knows that raising taxes doesn't bring in more money, a larger government is a worse government, and that ILLEGAL IMIGRATION IS ILLEGAL!
