I doubt they'll be deported - after all they're "non violent illegal aliens" just here working in the trades, doing those jobs "Americans won't do" - sigh

Notice what trade they are all in...general construction. Seems to be the field where many illegals can disappear into the shadows while living in the US.

Carpenter and electrician used to be good solid American jobs for blue collar families and provided a decent lifestyle.

But I thought the standard excuse was that illegals only work jobs illegals wont do?????
Lets see I need my house wired do I hire a licensed contractor who is insured or an illegal? Guess some morons opt to save cash instead of going with a qualified contractor.
I need a new porch on my house. Do I hire a licensed carpenter or go cheap with a scum bag illegals? Who do you call when the roof collapses?
Then we have the general contractor who entered illegally. What more need be said?
Law abiding just doesn't seem to fit any of them..
