That doesnt mean we should hire illegals. I want the person building my house to be a professional, framer, drywaller, electrician, roofer. I want the crew paid well enough that if they are caught cutting corners , skylarking or otherwise comprimising the quality of the job that they would be in fear of losing their jobs.

Illegals know if they show up at Home Depot the next morning they go back to work.

How many illegals are getting jobs that require English speaking skill in the service sector? You make it seem like Americans are falling over themselves to get manual labor jobs working in the hot sun or the rain.

At some point the pay will attract job candidates. If you have to pay more to get Americans to work in the

hot sun

then you pay them what it takes

What? did you not read the entire article ProLogic?

Not only had they found jobs, but they were also working to help fellow hurricane victims rebuild their city. However, within 10 days of relocating to Biloxi for the project, the workers were replaced with illegal immigrants and sent home.


They were already hired and doing the work. The reason they were replaced, as we all know is because the illegals work so much cheaper. It is not enough that our government stabs us in the back they joyously twist the blade and roll on the floor with laughter as they watch us bleed, this includes those Government contractors too.

Talking Logic

New Orleans was a beautiful city. All blacks are not as they are portrayed. But, I have seen gangs and the bad side. I hope they get sick of those illegals. Because they "THINK" they're bad, "THEY WILL SEE BAD!" A lot of people LEFT because of illegals over running their city. Especially St. Bernard Parish. Even our Black Americans can't stand them. And they are stealing jobs and doing POOR work. Always have always will! They picked a great spot.

There is an extreme historical irony about St Bernard Parish:

There was a judge; Leander H. Perez, who was a vicious White supremacist about 50 years ago......he was a member of the White Citizen's Council and was excommunicated from the Catholic Church due to his views.

The man today would have been counted as a Hispanic due to his Spanish heritage.

My point being he and the Mestizo illegals from Mexico would most likely 'had a problem' in the 1950's, shall we say.

It's ridiculous to rebuild New Orleans for a foreign population. Either rebuild it for the original inhabitants -- or leave it go. If it's not good jobs for Americans but dirt paying jobs for a group that will still depend on taxpayers for their food stamps and free health care -- then we're better off without it.
