Earlier today, Portland City Commissioner Sam Adams joined forces with anti-immigrant talk radio host Lars Larson in support of a costly scheme to check the papers of all employees of every company before the city of Portland would contract with them.
Commissioner Adams pledged to support or initiate the anti-immigrant, anti-business resolution only minutes after voicing his support for the new Day Labor Center slated to be constructed in Portland. Although he voiced support for the site, Adams was not present during yesterday’s hearing and did not participate in the vote to move the day labor site project forward.
Larson was so ecstatic finding a supporter for a law that targets employers who hire immigrants that he gave Commissioner Adams his “Props and Kudos” Award for the day.
