In 1890, Cavan-born Irish immigrant Marcus Daly founded the town on Hamilton, Montana.
Today, over 115 years later, this town, founded by an Irish-immigrant, will host an anti-immigrant sham "hearing" run by modern day Know-Nothings/Do-Nothings.
The hearings delay real action on immigration reform. They provide a forum for House Know-Nothings to bash the comprehensive immigration reform bill passed by a bi-partisan Senate in May.
The Senate Bill (S2 2611) provides a path for the 50,000 undocumented Irish living in the country to earn their way to legal status. No other bill or proposal would help the Irish undocumented.
House Know-Nothings continue to play politics with immigration instead of getting something done. Hamilton, founded by an Irish immigrant, in a state with a rich history of Irish immigration was an interesting choice of location for the anti-immigration "hearing."
