McDonald's was their kind of place...

...a place for illegal immigrants, that is.
But today the company's been fined $1 million by the government for knowingly employing them.
That's good, for the obvious reasons--and for this:

"...the fact that it's McDonald's is especially important. McDonald's is believed to be the company with the largest number of no-matches — that is, W-2s filed by the employer that have fake or mismatched Social Security numbers."

I didn't realize McDonald's hired so many illegals, though I guess I'm not surprised at it.
It's good that the Bush administration is cracking down on such employers.
And it's good that the administration obviously has heard conservatives on this issue.
