    Republicans especially the Trump Scum Supporters have no interest in changing the immigration system in the United States.

    The system suits them fine … The Trump Scum Supporting building contractors prefer to hire undocumented workers since they can control, exploit and demonize them .

    The immigrant share of the construction workforce has been consistent—and consistently high—over the past decade despite the Great Recession and the global construction downturn. In some areas of the country, such as the Southwest, all work crews are immigrants.

    This trend is even more pronounced in some hazardous occupations, like construction laborers, roofers, and drywallers. By some counts, nearly one in four fatally injured immigrant workers in the United States is employed in the construction industry.
