Desde ayer sale todo el día, all over the news, que Meg Whitman, the Republican nominee for governor of California, employed an undocumented worker as a housekeeper for 9 years. And then Meg fired her when the housekeeper asked for help in obtaining legal status in the US. I’ve never been a fan of Whitman, even though I do like eBay, but this was a surprise. Just goes to show that everybody in politics has skeletons in the closet.
Pero here we go again. Immigration in the news, the finger pointing and mad rants from both camps, and once more the hypocrisy of these politicians comes to light. Because if someone works for you as a housekeeper for 9 years, you trust her enough to know she is essentially a good person to be in your home and around your family. You just can’t make her disappear with a “From now on, you don’t know me and I don’t know you” when she comes to you for help. How convenient!
