Gee, thanks, Mitt!

Mitt Romney, former Governor of Massachusetts and now GOP Presidential wannabe, is merrily slamming my (and theoretically his) home state in his latest TV ad:

Funny, though; at 0:08 the announcer talks about how Romney "enforced immigration laws", but somehow failed to mention that the folks who tended the grounds at Romney's Belmont home were mostly illegal aliens:
The Globe recently interviewed four current and former employees of Community Lawn Service with a Heart, the tiny Chelsea-based company that provides upkeep of Romney's property. All but one said they were in the United States illegally.

The employees told the Globe that company owner Ricardo Saenz never asked them to provide documents showing their immigration status and knew they were illegal immigrants.
There's the image at 0:15 of Romney standing in front of a nice, big, red star. Call me weird, but that's the sort of symbology I was used to from the old Soviet Union.
