image for Mexican company wins outsourcing subcontract for Orange County Court over others in India or China; US citizens outraged
US companies cannot wait for Mexicans (Indians or Chinese) to cross the boarder so they are taking the work to them

Orange County, California - Local talk radio spin-doctors managed to take a break from insulting their listeners and fan the historical flames of racial, religious, nationalistic, and now economic, tension growing between Mexico and the United States today instead. Their exclusive news scoop: Orange County Superior Court, California, is outsourcing work its in-house traffic ticket division should be doing to begin with to contractor, Cal Coast Data Entry in Cerritos, California, which is in turn is subcontracting with a company in Nogales, Mexico.

"I had no idea my private information was being processed in Mexico," said Orange County resident, Ralph Wolfgang. "I thought it was being processed in India just like my Internet server account."

Tipped off by law enforcement officer and an employee of the Courthouse informed the local talk radio spin-doctors that have the conservative radio airwaves abuzz about the above aforementioned activity without providing the listeners with any additional information to enlighten their listeners on the subject beyond inciting their passions.

So far removed are the jobs of Orange County Superior Courthouse clerks, pushed aside, after acting as convenient initial impetus, from the discussion that no further consideration is given to them. Local talk radio spin-doctors instead focus the discussion on the outsourcing contractor subcontracting to Mexico and nothing else. Sadly, local TV picked up the story, which have done nothing to further the discussion as well. Now the story threatens to go nationwide depending on how slow a news day, or temperament of the news director, to continue the disservice of further failing to inform the public of the big picture.

"When I think, that in this age of terrorism that we are sending our private information just a few hundred miles away form us to Mexico, when it could be sent thousands of mile away to India -- it just gets my blood boiling," said Antonio Genovese.

"What about the Chinese?" said Gordon Smyth. "Has anybody stopped to think about the jobs those Mexicans are stealing away from them too. They could use the work. We don't have to send it just to India."

Orange County Superior Courthouse officials refused comment except to say they have no plans to discontinue the practice. County Supervisors position themselves to disavow the practice locally, while national politicians continue to push for controlled immigration with a Berlin like wall on the boarder and impose substantial fines with no real plans to address the underlining causes of illegal immigration, but rather plan to continue to exploit it

"It's all perfectly legal," said a political science professor at the Cassandra Institute of Foresight. "The NAFTA agreement passed in 1994, which was supported and passed by both Democrats and Republican parties, ensures that. All this other stuff is just a way to get the people to lose sight of the real issues and get Trojan Horse laws passed and politicians running on the old law and order ticket elected, all hollow promises of change."

Make Robert W. Armijo's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
