A Nashville man who knowingly hired illegal immigrants to work for his subcontracting businesses in Boone County will spend 18 months in federal prison. That was the ruling of US District Court Judge David Bunning on Thursday. Robert Pratt admitted to hiring more than 25 but less than 99 undocumented workers for drywall and framing in Northern Kentucky. Pratt was arrested along with others during a raid on Fisher Homes construction sites in May of 2006.
Doesn't anyone ever learn. If you want to do something like give an illegal a job, you have to be in the government, like say, governor of New York.
Once you become a governor of New York, you can do all kinds of things like give illegals driver's licenses, in state tuition, and free medical care.
But never, never, never do something illegal unless you are a governor or a senator (except for that toe tapping thing). Then you can get away with it.
Don't believe me. Become a US senator, drive off a bridge drunk, leave the scene, and kill a passenger. You'll walk away scott free.
Trust me. I've seen it happen.
