    I don't entirely agree with the message. How many construction jobs do illegal aliens have?

    A very large number, and they're putting many U.S. tradesmen out of business.
    Worse than that, ya get what you pay for. The problem is many construction company owners don't care about quality just the bottom line.

    Most of the new homes in this state are built with Latino crews, many of whom don't even speak English. Don't know if they are illegal or not, but I have my suspicions.

    And as Mr. P. stated, you get just what you pay for with these workers. My oldest daughter and her husband bought a high-priced home in a housing addition in north Indianapolis about five years ago (all these houses were built with Latino construction crews), and it is starting to come apart. They will have to have major repairs done in the not too distant future.

    I can see how some of these Latinos are "helping" the economy. You pay for their work, and then you pay later to have it done right.
