    Somewhat long but very interesting behind the scenes article from someone who knows the dirty secrets.

    "Illegal workers will work for less money because, being undocumented, they rarely pay employment taxes or any related insurance costs. Contractors exploit the illegals’ fear of immigration officials (La Migra), and the resultant silence stemming from that fear, for the purpose of fattening their own wallets. Too bad the prices these builders charge for the goods they provide don’t reflect their reduced production costs. Although reduced quality, is often the result."

    talk about it in construction....no workman's comp....no insurance....will work for less than min wage...if paid cash...they send most of their check back to mexico...my family cannot live with several other families in one house...most really are single men but now we see the families coming to join them..they are overloading the social services given by the county.

    they have driven wages down and the quailty of the work suffers..they dont care...and the contractors who hire them just want to bang a bid in lower than anyone else...

    Ignoring illegal immigration, or retroactively making illegals legal, is all part of this class war that I seem so obsessed about, folks.

    Please note that BOTH PARTIES are responsible for it, too.

    BOTH PARTIES, folks.

    Of course both parties are involved, the Republicrats wanting cheap labor for big and small business, and the Democans looking at easy votes when the immigrants naturalize.

    Very sad indeed,

    Considering that the Federal Government has NO AUTHORITY to interdict, detain, and deport aliens. NONE.
