[QUOTE=Riggins44;2647902]Great point, can't tell you how many tradesmen I know in Connecticut that have been brought to their knees by this illegal immigration mess. So imagine how devastating this problem is in places like California and Nevada?
Many of the tradesmen I know told me they used to have to turn down jobs not too long ago because they were too busy. In the last four years, or so, however, many have been unemployed for long stretches and are getting rocked by tremendous financial hardship. The sadest part is, the snakes in the local media will mostly ignore this probem and focus on "very important issues" like Connecticut kids having enough wiffle ball fields to play on this summer.
I guess a nice positive in the fight @ illegal immigration is Bush and McCain's top two pro amnesty congressmen, on the Republican side, have been [b]ousted in primaries[/b] and replace by Tancredo like hardliners...A$$ clown neo-cons Chris Cannon (Utah) and Wayne Gilchrist (Maryland) were both shown the door, just not soon enough in my opinion![/QUOTE]
and this is due to illegals not a crumbling economy and housing market? Are they competing against licensed tradesmen? if not the problem goes back to those doing the hiring not those being hired.
