Thin Blue discovers Big Orange

For some time, Home Depot has been a boon to illegal aliens. Seeking day work, they hang out in and around their parking lots, hoping a contractor will pick them up for a quick day's pay, under the table. Home Depot hasn't been an entirely willing participant. They post no-soliciting signs and, occasionally, have called the police to clear out loiterers.

It's a far cry from actually arresting and deporting illegal aliens, but as the Chinese say, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

And with Massachusetts, even a single step in the right direction is to be applauded.
