Jan Brewer, Phoenix Suns and Immigration

After the Phoenix Suns owner strongly opposed Arizona's policy on defending the border, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer responded:
"What if the owners of the Suns discovered that hordes of people were sneaking into games without paying? What if they had a good idea who the gate-crashers are, but the ushers and security personnel were not allowed to ask these folks to produce their ticket stubs, thus non-paying attendees couldn't be ejected. Furthermore, what if Suns' ownership was expected to provide those who sneaked in with complimentary eats and drink? And what if, on those days when a gate-crasher became ill or injured, the Suns had to provide free medical care and shelter?"

The team owner's response would likely be just like our government's response. They would raise the ticket prices (taxes) on those who were there legitimately to make up for those who broke the law. The end result of course would be the same. Once those who actually buy tickets are forced out of the market, the inevitable bankruptcy will take place.

Ain't liberalism grand?
