    I’ll agree with that, guys like me can’t get any construction jobs because of Mexicans or where ever they come from taking those jobs because of unfair hiring practices. I’m sorry if they are not LEGAL to be here and cannot speak English and REQUIRE and interpreter they shouldn’t be here or allowed to work. If they are allowed to work they should pay taxes, not get a free ride. If I went to Mexico or any other country, I would first have to have a legal visa to be there, then I would have to pay for and wait for a work permit. If I was hired for a job, I would be TAXED 40 % minimum, just to be allowed to work in their country or even be there. THAT is the way it should be here and needs to be. Other countries in the world, you cross their border illegally, you’ll get at least 5 to 10 years of hard labor in prison, and their prisons are not like vacation luxury sweet like here, or you could be shot and immediately killed. We should adopt the same policy, fair is fair.
