WE'VE GOT JOBS, THEY'VE GOT THE DESIRE TO DO THEM...:

Gulf rebuilders concede hiring illegals (Marguerite Higgins, November 12, 2005, THE WASHINGTON TIMES)

Contractors working in the Gulf Coast region say they are actively looking for local workers, but some acknowledge they are turning to day-laborer programs, which often include illegal aliens.

"We are primarily working through a large number of subcontractors and being proactive in achieving local hiring. And, yes, they do access day-laborer type of forces whenever possible," said Chris Sammons, spokesman for the Shaw Group Inc.

The Baton Rouge, La., engineering and construction firm, a prime contractor for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, has worked with 150 subcontractors to provide a range of services, including roof repairs, temporary housing and rebuilding assessments in hurricane-ravaged parts of Louisiana.

"I think you'll see more of that," Mr. Sammons said of the day laborers.

...it's a match made in Heaven.

It is also a match that can be accomplished legally and humanely, without making millions of Hispanics permanent citizens of the US, willy nilly shooting craps with American Culture.

Of course they should be legalized.

That's not what I was suggesting. Temporary contract workers would be more appropriate. In other words "give us the work and hold the endless wailing of an oppressed minority, which inevitably you will do as you move from productive to parasitic".

That's their right as Americans, just listen to the nativists.

Legalize them. They're the kind of Americans we need and want.

We trade them for our native born non-workers. Send them and their welfare checks to Mexico.
