BP is a private company and can hire any company from any part of the world to do clean-up. It is not BP's responsibility to check every worker's immigrations status to the foreign contractor hired. If BP hires a Bolivian company to do clean-up, you want BP to make sure all the employees are Bolivian? what if that compay wants to hire contract workers from china...then what?

Lets try not to make the oil spill clean up a bigger logistical nightmare than it already is.

You're mixing apples with oranges here. If BP themselves hires individuals to clean up it is their responsibility to make sure who they are hiring is here legally. If they are using a U.S. contractor they should make sure that the contractor is a legitamate one who only hires those lawfully able to work in this country. As for foreign contractors I would imagine that a visa would be required for their workers to come here and work.

To work in the US you need to have permits and such. The coon-asses down south will be sure no illegals get there jobs.

How is it mixing aplles and oranges? BP doesnt have to hire US citizens to do clean-up...You think BP is going to go down to the loading dock and hire people directly?

There are international companies trained and experienced in this type of work. Labor staffing companies will handle domestic crews, BP wont want the liability for hiring workers directly.

Doesn't matter as long as BP makes sure that the workers whether they be foreign or domestic are those authorized to work here. In the case of outside contractors it is the contractor's responsibility to see that the workers are authorized.

There is no law that they have to.

I think we maybe discussing two different points. If the clean up were talking about is along the coast on American soil, then I would almost be certain they would need to be apporved to work in the USA. If were talking about the clean up on the open waters, than they can bring in anyone.

There is no law that says an employer can't hire illegal aliens? WTH?
