Labrador appears to be from out-of-this-world.  He has appeared here 
without his interplanetary papers in order.  He is working on behalf of 
his alien corporate masters to keep earth-bound American humans at 
quality-of-life disadvantages while allowing other planetary foreigners 
to develop and maintain competitive advantages over the American 
workforce and electorate.  Not only is this not appropriate immigration 
counseling for any American constituency, it is also bad psychological, 
medical, and health care advocacy for the better well-being and 
increased productivity of workers everywhere.

Good reporting work from Brzezinski for allowing Labrador to expose and 
illustrate his political status as clearly detrimental to the majority 
of his constituents.
