These do not go away as the result of a set aside in Arizona - this is something I know as my activism has now branched out into criminal justice reform - something I will be tackling with other activists once my hours are cut way back this April.

    PS Came back to add, don't believe me - read paragraph 8 for yourself, beginning with the words, "In Arizona......" for proof. Your own article summarizes this reality that I refer to much better than I ever could. Rob
    I think you aren’t understanding what you are reading. And don’t have a context to evaluate it.

    im sure the victim in the case might not agree with you.

Even showing most of various industries is illegals isn't so easy because employers don't exactly announce that they hire illegals as well that is technically illegal - if one is going to break the law it is generally a good idea not to announce it and even to have fake documents if you can. If anyone has this data perhaps it is the IRS but I don't know how much they share it. My boyfriend does work in the construction industry though, it's no secret.
    so illegals donít seem to have a problem getting work, but Robs friend canít get a job because of a supposed petty crime. I donít understand why his friend didnít just escape the country and live elsewhere, he must already live close to the southern border.
