Even many of the big custom home builder companies (huge building boom here) use illegal labor. My guess is it's political and that they lobby for it, because they can build 5000 square foot homes for the least amount of $$$. There has been debate about that situation here in Texas for years.
Then these Texans are not dealing in reality and not so smart because that cheaper house is actually not so cheap when they factor in the extra taxes they are paying for the upkeep of these illegal aliens overall. Not to mention the uncontrolled population growth with these illegals aliens which means building more schools, straining their healthcare facilities and the added crime.

Sorry that we don't have a time machine for you to use to go back and deport all the Irish that you hate, but I'd like to welcome you to 2015. We have an illegal immigration problem. It's more than Mexicans. There's people from Europe, people from Canada, people from all across the globe that are not here legally. Why did you feel the need to single out Mexicans?
I'm guessing you're talking about the Wash Post article here, not my comments about it? I'm def against illegal aliens and their fans.
