Fort Walton Beach - Authorities believe that between 30 and 40 illegal aliens were employed in the construction of the 7th Special Forces Complex, but by the time the very thorough 3-month investigation was wrapped up, so was most of the work, and the great majority of the workers were unaccounted for. Fort Walton Beach - Authorities believe that between 30 and 40 illegal aliens were employed in the construction of the 7th Special Forces Complex, but by the time the very thorough 3-month investigation was wrapped up, so was most of the work, and the great majority of the workers were unaccounted for.
Authorities did arrest three illegal aliens, and plan to continue to investigate what they call a case of identity fraud by employees working on critical infrastructure at the 7th Special Forces Complex on Eglin Air Force Base.
Arrested were 23-year old Marlo Contreras of Fort Walton Beach, 27-year old Victor Contreras-Suarez of Fort Walton Beach, and 26-year old Abraham Garcia of Orlando.
Contreras-Suarez is the owner of H&S Drywall, but is married to a U-S citizen whose name is on all contract documents. His company has been working on the 7th Special Forces Project for up to a year and has previously worked on other government construction projects.
Okaloosa County Sheriffs Office Inspector George Collins launched the investigation last September after a deputy arrested an admitted illegal alien working at the 7th Special Forces Group construction site.

With stories like this, I understand why so many Americans believe we are past the point of no return...

A few years hard labor before deportation should do the trick.
A Military Base! Who and How let/did this happen? Heads need to roll..
This story was posted a day or two ago and something struck me then as important.
This puts to the lie, the claim that illegals are doing jobs that Americans won’t do.
The Florida Panhandle has always had a high unemployment rate and still does. Military bases like Eglin, Pensacola and Tyndall help a lot.
My Father worked at Eglin for over 30 years and was glad to have a job there. These illegals took jobs that locals would loved to have.
The contract requires USC’s. They violated the contract. Don’t pay the contractor and call ICE.
We have illegal aliens in secured areas at sensitive military installations. We also have them working the airports at the back door while we are strip searched at thef ront door. Nothing is really secure anymore.
