Uhmm, it's a good time to build a pool, or an add on to your house. It will help this people find work, and you get it done cheap. Everyone wins.

Why wouldn’t you want to help one of the many citizens looking for work, as opposed to giving work to an illegal?

Unlike you, most of us don't want "these people" to find work. We want AMERICANS out of work to find work.

I could care less whether the criminals find work or not.

I am not going to ask if the person is a citizen or not. If a U.S. citizen wants to stand there I will hire him too. Everyone gets the same pay. I do not discriminate.

Unless the U.S. citizens don't want to go find work, I will hire them as well.

Yes, and we all know there are lots of U.S. citizens among the loitering day laborers.

Now, how is that my fault. If I was unemployed and could not find a job i would do everything on my power to get one. Why would it be in appropriate for a U.S. citizen to be a day laborer, so that i could not find any there?
