Naturally I went over to them in an attempt to make friends.
I was greeted by Tracy (seen above) who says that she "volunteers" here "most days." She was expecting us and once again, my reputation proceeded me as she had read my blog. (It's good to have fans) She is the translater for the illegal alien day laborers.
The "nothing to hide" crowd is extremely camera shy, going so far as to run behind trees and walls to avoid having their picture taken. (I enjoy throwing around the Billy the Kid phrase "I'll make ya famous")
2) hiring them puts you are extreme risk liability wise if they get hurt on your property/job site
Driver with illegal aliens in the back seat getting my name from an illegal alien advocate, err, I mean, unbiased photographer from The Oregonian. (if you ask him if he is an advocate he will scream at you and no he doesn't have a bussiness card why would you ask, but more on that later)
The guy from MHG lawn service wasn't succesfful in picking someone up but only because he had peed his pants when he saw the camera come out. He actually ripped off the magnectic company sticker on his door. Again, that's MSG Lawn Service at 503-359-0613. Feel free to give them a polite call.
Here we have the criminal alien advocate, err, unbiased reporter from The Oregonian, talking to the potential pick-up while Rick attempts to explain the dangers/illegality of hiring workers here. (The Oregonian photographer was the bigger advocate but purple jacket there is the reporter)
The ironic thing about the camera shy crowd in this case is that it gave me yet another company logo and phone number to post. (In the past I have had these companies beg for me to take their logos down from here but I don't feel sorry for people who support illegal aliens, give them a polite call) That's C & Sons Construction (specializing in siding and breaking the law) who can be reached at 503-984-2796.
Next post: The feeble attempt at a counter protest (if calling the USA "fascist" counts as a protest) and the border erected by the local Catholic church to keep us from using their parking lot... (note to self: look up definition of irony)
