What if the competing construction workers were Ukranian, were here on valid visitor work visas, yet still were willing to perform quality roofing, framing, bricklaying, plumbing, wiring, painting and landscaping work 70 hours a week at 1/2 the rate of the prevailing local union guys?
Is your problem with the status of the immigrants, or that they are competing against overpriced local labor?
This is in East Texas. It isn't overpriced labor nor is it union labor. And your Ukranian labor would have to be paid overtime which the illegals do not get.
If the playing field was level it would be different. But you and I both know it isn't and that isn't right and isn't what the USA is susposed to be about.

(Cuba = BAD, China = Good? Why, should both be treated the way Cuba is?)
