Stephen Colbert discusses illegal immigration on Capitol Hill

Posted By on September 24, 2010

I was somewhat irritated to hear that comedian Steven Colbert was invited to speak to a congressional subcommittee… in character… about illegal aliens living, working, committing crimes and and basically leeching off US citizens. It did sound like a ridiculous way to spend taxpayer dollars (estimated at $125,000/hr), but in retrospect might be an effective way to get congress to focus on their job of securing our borders? If Washington makes progress in this area and deals with the over 10 million who have illegally immigrated to the United States, it may not have been the worst idea they have wasted time on this year.
