First, the Art:

Comedian Carlos Mencia has a routine that goes, "So the US Government wants to build a wall to keep out the illegal Mexicans. So, WHO'S gonna to build this wall?"


Here now the News:

Calif. fence firm faces criminal charges

A Southern California fence-building company and two of its executives will be charged amid a long-running criminal investigation into whether the company knowingly hired illegal immigrants, officials said Wednesday.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said last year that 100 employees at the company's Riverside office were unauthorized to work, including three who the company had been ordered not to employ after the 1999 audit.

Golden State, which currently employs 750 people, saw sales soar from $60 million in 1998 to $150 million in 2004. Among its projects: construction of part of a 14-mile border fence in San Diego in the late 1990s.
