Compelled Labor

Little Green Footballs brings us news of this story.

I would just say this: … ’30 to 60 days from now anyone who is in the state of Iowa that who is not here legally and who cannot demonstrate their legal status to the satisfaction of the local and state authorities here in the State of Iowa, become property of the State of Iowa.’ So if you are here without our permission, and we have given you two months to leave, and you’re still here, and we find that you’re still here after we we’ve given you the deadline to leave, then you become property of the State of Iowa. And we have a job for you. And we start using compelled labor, the people who are here illegally would therefore be owned by the state and become an asset of the state rather than a liability and we start inventing jobs for them to do.

Yeah... that sounds oddly like, well, slavery. Seems like we have an amendment in out constitution that says something about that. maybe? I'm not sure. My head hurts.  Anyway, Jan Michelson, who is actually given access to radio airwaves and such, actually fucking said this.
