From Debbie at Right Truth we find out a subcontractor providing rebar installation for major bridge projects in Mississippi, Louisiana and Tennessee used illegal aliens who did not have valid welding certifications. Are these welding jobs the jobs Americans won’t do that the pro-illegal immigrationists are always mentioning?
Talk about public safety! I just wonder what other possible areas there are unqualified illegal aliens working on infrastructure projects?
The good thing is that the owner of this company was arrested by ICE on Thursday.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested Jose S. Gonzalez, 32, at his office in Greenville Thursday, according to a news release. Tarrasco Steel was hired as a subcontractor for rebar installation services to major bridge projects in Mississippi, Louisiana and Tennessee. The federal government considers those bridges as critical infrastructure, and they were part of routine inspections of facilities that if damaged could pose a threat to national security and public safety.”There is a serious public safety concern when illegal aliens, who are not authorized to work in the country legally, and who do not possess valid welding certifications, are employed in the construction of bridges in our communities,” said Michael A. Holt, special agent in charge of the Customs Office of Investigations in New Orleans, in a news release.
BTW – Tarrasco Steel worked on an I-40 project in Memphis.
