Three Maine roofers put their hammers down and stood up to show respect for the national anthem on Saturday, in the process unknowingly posing for a photo that's been used to symbolize one side of the contentious nationwide debate about "The Star-Spangled Banner."

That, my friend is because all three are White Legal US Citizens not illegals.
Odds are pretty good that they don’t play professional football.
The same way they look in Florida. Short. Brown all over. Plus they don't speak Ingleesh.
Oh, you mean like Minnesota?
How do you know they are legal? I live in a place where Americans do the jobs Americans are no longer doing and still encounter illegal alien roofers all over.
She was thinking of the rest of America that would love to see this. I’m sure it only took a few seconds time out.
