SOLEDAD; ILLEGAL DO TAKE JOBS 20 million illegal aliens are not picking lettuce. Illegal aliens do take jobs from Americans. When contractors were rebuilding New Orleans, they fired blacks and hired illegal aliens. Stating they work harder for less. In many meat packing companies blacks were replaced with illegal aliens with false identifications.

Soledad asked people in N.C. if they are anyone who had lost a job to an illegal alien and the answer was no, because that is not how it is done. Businesses hire illegal aliens instead of hiring Americans. They work for less and that is how they bring down wages for others if they want to work. Construction contractors hire illegal aliens before they hire Americans because they work for less and harder.
