HAMILTON – A construction business coalition has complained to state officials that a local masonry company should not be allowed to build new public schools in Hamilton because the company allegedly uses illegal immigrant workers.

During a meeting of the Ohio School Facilities Commission, held earlier this week in Columbus, a researcher with the Ohio Construction Coalition sharply criticized Mason-based ABC Precision Masonry & Concrete.

I would hope that with the recession at hand, that more American companies could provide needed jobs to the Americans that have been layed off. I am sure that there will be many construction workers and seniors looking for jobs.

So a group makes an allegation about a competitor who is non-union and instead of looking at the allegations and asking for support that the masonry company knowingly hired illegal immigrants you just believe it? Wow, I didnt realize that the immigration debate lowered the standard of proof to just allegations.

From the article...

Quote:
The company, which worked recently on a Cincinnati Public Schools’ project, was the employer of four Mexican illegal workers who were slain in December in their Sharonville apartment.
Looks like a little more than an 'allegation' to me...

So one group claims that 4 illegals who were murdered were working on a project for the contractor they are making an allegation against and that is proof that the employer knowingly hired illegal immigrants? Do you have the employment paperwork to show this? Were the employees working directly for the contractor or for the subcontractor? Were the employees actually employed and then fired once they were found out to be illegal? Do you know any details other than an allegation?

Good for them. We need to start putting pressure on anyone that knowingly hires illegals.

and you have proof that the contractor "knowingly" hired illegals or is an allegation by a competitor all the proof you need?

The 4 were long-time employees of the firm in question. They were found dead in their apt. after the employer called the police to report them missing. None of them had any kind of ID, forged or otherwise, when they were found. The employer admitted that he knew they were illegal. It's all available online.

Well then, if the employer knowingly hired them then that is a different story. But I shouldn’t have to research someone elses allegations to prove them. Show me support for them so I have more reason to believe it but allegations without support are just that, allegations without support.
