Because the clean up effort helps the Gulf Coast residents with jobs after their livelihood has been undermined by the spill.
The first part of that statement contradicted itself. "very high visibility and illegals don't want to be as invisible as possible" not sure what you meant. How about Katrina?? the entire demographic of New Orleans has changed...

Yeah, I didn't check the post before submitting. It should have said illegals want to be as non visible as possible.

After the initial criticisms and relief effort (Katrina), the media didn't focus on the construction workers doing the rebuilding, atleast that is my perception, though I don't watch much TV. I get most of my news online. I did read a few articles here and there about workers from out of town coming in but it wasn't front page high visibility news.

With the recent Arizona law and the economy in the tank, having illegals doing the clean up would be too much. Once the dust settles a bit, having illegals help the clean up would not have the same level of negativity it would bring now.
