Mark Pryor and Immigration?

On June 28th, Mark Pryor's office released this statement on immgration. Pryor asserts that he opposed the President's bill because "enforcement measures are inadequate and the bill fails to effectively address the individuals who are already here illegally."

Well we think that Pryor should consider his words very carefully when talking about illegal immigrants. It is hard to have credibility when you haven't fully answered the questions about your own hiring of an illegal immigrant.

As you may remember, in 2002, Mark Pryor was dogged by claims he hired an illegal alien to work as a maid at his house. He claimed that she was legal and that he didn't have to pay social security or payroll taxes for her. He even brought a "signed affadavit" claiming she was legal.

According to KAIT News in Jonesboro, shortly after Pryor won re-election and he was in the clear, the maid, Hortencia Osorio told the spanish speaking newspaper El Latino that she signed a false affadavit and was in fact an illegal immigrant while she worked for Pryor and that she was paid $70 a day for work which would have required the Pryor's to make tax payments.

We believe that the media let Pryor off the hook on this and as the immigration debate continues we will continue to investigate the matter (although we have been told that Osorio was deported to Mexico).
Many believe it is the employers of illegal immigrants who should be held responsible for encouraging illegal behavior. Interesting thought, huh, Mr. Pryor?
