Feds Investigate Illegals Living in Walls of Hospital Construction Site
FoxNews.com ^ | February 09, 2011 | FoxNews

Posted on 02/09/2011 9:38:43 PM PST by moonshinner_09

Federal and state agents are investigating the possibility that illegal immigrant workers have been living in the walls of a new medical center in Florida, MyFoxOrlando reported Wednesday.

Authorities combed the construction site of the new multimillion dollar VA Medical center in Lake Nona’s Medical City with thermal imaging devices in the second raid within a 24-hour period.

"We didn't see anything," worker Anthony Willis told MyFoxOrlando, "just told us to come out of our work areas and have our IDs ready."

After the warning, law enforcement officers descended on the site.

"All of a sudden cops come around with the four-wheelers," Shon Trusdale, a steelworker, said. "Next thing you know, a helicopter is up here and guards at the gates."

Hey Zero, why not give all 20 million of them mortgages as welcoming gifts!

When the foreign occupier employed the phrase "fundamentally transforming America" two years ago, that's precisely what he meant.

As much as I can’t stand illegals (and I can’t), who’s going to replace them? Either a bunch of spoiled-rotten union Socialists or high school kids (LOL).

It’s hard to blame the contractors...but it’s also nice to see some law enforcement, for once.

There are plenty of Americans out of work who would love to have a job.
Americans first, or no America will be left.

Channel 2, WESH-TV....the NBC affiliate in Orlando....had this same story....but refused to mention that these were “illegal aliens”...not kidding

I figured they were Illegal Aliens when they would not mention they were “Illegal Aliens”

Deport all Illegal Aliens....failure to deport any and all Illegals is Amnesty

Florida is a Right to Work state...so they can find plenty of experienced people to do the work. The unemployment is 12% in the state...plenty of American labor available

Judging by your post...you seem a little too obsessed with unions....and hiring Illegals instead of Americans

The unemployment rate for construction workers in Orlando Florida area is over 35%. 30,000+ guys out of work.
There are PLENTY of qualified hardworking guys around Lake Nona Orlando who would take the work.

You need to trust the free market.

If you want someone to do janitorial for your hospital, put out an ad. If no one good responds, advertise again. Raise the pay. Eliminate some barriers. Increase the benefits. Improve the working conditions. Do what you need to do to get the janitor.

In this economy I think you could find a janitor rather easily.

Nahum 3

Woe to Nineveh


12. All your fortresses are like fig trees
with their first ripe fruit;
when they are shaken,
the figs fall into the mouth of the eater.
13. Look at your troops—
they are all weaklings.
The gates of your land
are wide open to your enemies;
fire has consumed the bars of your gates.

14. Draw water for the siege,
strengthen your defenses!
Work the clay,
tread the mortar,
repair the brickwork!
15. There the fire will consume you;
the sword will cut you down—
they will devour you like a swarm of locusts.
Multiply like grasshoppers,
multiply like locusts!
16. You have increased the number of your merchants
till they are more numerous than the stars in the sky,
but like locusts they strip the land
and then fly away.
17. Your guards are like locusts,
your officials like swarms of locusts
that settle in the walls on a cold day—
but when the sun appears they fly away,
and no one knows where.


( Feds Investigate Illegals Living in Walls of Hospital Construction Site , Nahum chapter 3 verse :17. Your guards are like locusts )
your officials like swarms of locusts
that settle in the walls on a cold day—

1 Samuel 24:12-13

Touch not the Lord's anointed.

NIV
1 Chronicles 16:22

Do not touch my anointed ones; do my prophets no harm."

New Living Translation:
1 Chronicles 16:22 "Do not touch my chosen people, and do not hurt my prophets."


Do not touch or harm God's beloved Israel, nor touch or harm the body of Christ, his church.

For GOD will rebuke those who harm his chosen, his anointed ones.

The swarms of " Locust " are the illegal migrant workers who are consuming the land, taking away our jobs because of the sins and crimes of this wicked Government, the crimes against the American people, against Israel and against Christians.

Think it not strange that this is happening, for GOD is rebuking this government.

Woe to Nineveh !!

Touch not, or harm the God of Israel's beloved ISRAEL !
Neither touch the Lord's anointed one's the church, the body of Christ.

Think it not strange that floods will come, cities will be overwhelmed with floods.
Think it not strange when you see the Earth shaken, and see whole mountains crumble and the waters over flow them.
Think it not strange when you see the GOD of Israel ride the waves with his horse in his anger because you harmed his beloved one, his Israel.
Think it not strange when you see the Earth shaken and see world wide tsunamis.
Think it not strange when you see both the SUN and MOON stop in their place.
Think it not strange when you see the Earth shaken, that even the stars seem to move out of their place, along with the Sun and Moon.

The writer quotes his source:
"King Abdullah talked with Obama about the situation in Egypt over the phone yesterday. Obama and the King got into a heated debate about their opinions of what Hosni Mubarak should do."
Laughable Obamaganda! Like Obama is not owned.

Then why weren’t their butts down there filling out an application? Or maybe they did go down there but on the application they put they would only work for union wages of $37 an hour instead of the $15 the others including the illegals work for. Herein lies the problem. Unions have so overinflated wages to the point of ridiculous that employers have no choice. I mean, come on guys, you have a guy with a high school diploma who has some carpenter/construction skills and you think he deserves $30 an hour?

If they are working on a Federal project, they are supposed to be paid union scale which is very good money. I am sure that there are a lot of unemployed Americans that would take these jobs. If the contractor is employing illegals and not paying scale wages, they should be prosecuted.

“Judging by your post...you seem a little too obsessed with unions....and hiring Illegals instead of Americans”

Yea, I figured that I came across that way. I’ve run smaller projects out here in Texas and it’s really tough to find someone whose first language is English, yet still has the skills (and the common sense) to do a half-decent job, yet still not have to pay them $50 plus per hour.

My point is that the labor market (at least out here) is so distorted by illegals that its going to take some time before Americans (particularly the ones coming out of high school these days) starting carrying their share of the physical labor - it just seems to be beneath them, when they can all be going to college to learn linguistics, or getting a job in video game design.

Unemployment is ridiculously high.

How about real American citizens?

It sounds like you're trying to justify keeping them here or taking no action against them.

The Freesoil party (1848 to 1852) was a transitional party consisting of anti slavery Whigs and Democrats that led to the formation of the Republican party. They were very much the tea party of the day and they had an answer to your question.

They argued that free men on free soil comprised a morally and economically superior system to slavery. They opposed slavery in the new territories and sometimes worked to remove existing laws that discriminated against freed African Americans in states such as Ohio.

Thier party motto says it all even for today.

'Free Soil, Free Speech, Free Labor and Free Men,'

“Who picked the cotton after 1865?”

The same ones that picked it before 1865, under the same conditions.

That won’t happen in this case, as the people that “know how to pick the cotton” will leave for home and the Nintendo players, bless their little hearts, would not know which way to point a nail gun.

Naa, you can sift through my prior postings, I WANT THEM OUT!! I’m just sympathizing with the people who actually try to get stuff built.

...and face it, just about everyone one this site, and certainly everyone who lives in a dwelling built in the past 20 years, knows who built it, and their status.

Union scale wages should be outlawed after we deport the illegals. I don’t see much of a difference in quality between the slow as fudge unionized fatsos we have here or the illegals who don’t know Sheetrock from shuttlecock.
